Stop me if you've heard this before, but, I literally stumbled onto this drama --because the first episode started while I was out of the room-- and didn't realize (until ep 16) that it was 50 episodes long! By that time I was in way too deep to bail. It was at once, cute, funny, dramatic, witty, awe-inspiring and downright frustrating, but worth every minute I spent in rapt enjoyment. The story-line kept me guessing (though I thought I'd seen it all) and never strayed from its initial promise: you will Love this series and EVERY character who strutted and fretted across the screen. (For what it's worth, Eun Ju has got to be the cutest young Lady in the genre); but, I digress. Though things may not have turned out as I would have wanted them to from the start, it carried me along from title to credit-roll without apology as to how it had shaken my normally stoic emotional state. The underlying music was tasteful and held the script together without being pedantic, campy or unnecessarily over-sentimental. Performances were masterful and made me believe that no improvements were necessary; if 'improvement' were at all possible. A true delight. If I'm ever cabin-bound in the mountains with a weeks worth of time and a solid internet connection, I could revisit 'Give Love Away' (or, 'A Little Love Never Hurts') set it on auto-play and watch every moment again without taking, wanting or needing a break in the flow.
