What a gem little drama. The writers is dare to throw a flawed character on us with unlikeable personality (while if you think about it, they will become a total villain in a another drama) make them become the centre of the story in one family.  a Wife who is unfaithful ? check. A daughter who is a total reckless and inconsiderate? check. A son who is so weak? check. This drama fill with black comedy that will make you laugh due to their of behaviour and different point of view from people surrounding them, because deep down, at times you will agree with them.  

One flaw with this drama? This drama is too short, This drama deserve more episode! These character deserve it.

if you are appreciating a character full of layer and emotion to overcome their struggle in the workplace world ala Misaeng, but with a darker tone, you might be like this drama alot. Who said a love story can't mix with realism and as your way of telling a good message ala THe dancing the waltz alone?

Once again, not alot of writers is dare enough to throw character reggresion/redemption on viewers .  The character struggle in here is real and the writers write her/his own character with heart,  and far from conventional we are used to. They are  trapped in their own anxiety and fear due to the pressure from the world they live in. The plot never defined what path you should take, more about the result decision in your own making.

The metaphore between the waltz dance and relate it to their relationship is just a billiant touch from the writers.

Eventually the first 4 episode start with a bang, such an awsome first episode to set up the story further. The drama start with the present days, showing everyone fate before we get to know the past why they end up that way in the present days. The following episode, the drama suffer from too much PPL and fan service, make it look like a different show compare to what they have showed in the those first 4 awsome episode. Well after all, this drama has sold to china so they had to make alot of fan service, make the main narrative suffer from that and end up frustated alot of viewers. but the show indeed still have charm left that make me continue watching. THe character of Shin Jon Young given enough of depth it makes his choice much more sense. What makes me enjoy of his journey is the suprisingly Kim Woo Bin acting which is so subtle and at times RAW. When You given a that kind of acting in your screen, you can't help but you are there with him and start to invest on his journey. The acting of other side character are also  well done, so it's hard to say Kim Woo Bin carrying this drama alone.  Well It's a very slow pace as somehow the show suffer on doesn't know to expand the storyline without some stereotype storyline. But thanks to this show. I got of what I got, the best performances from Kim Woo Bin, and Park Hyun Suk become my new Fav PD-NIM.

This drama is Structurally cohesive and Have intriguing plot. Also Beautiful cinematography. So What's lacking? Acting of the lead couple. They lack passion and subtlity what makes drama like this enjoyable. Their scene at times doesn't add up to the story because their lack of subtlety. So at times, we end up rely on visual story telling, dialogue and their adequate acting to follow the story the main character without much our feeling involve. So everything they do feel insincere, It's just doesn't work.
Thanks God Supporting actor are delivering, so the suspense is still working. And Between other main character, Han Eun Joo's scene is so much more intriguing than the main couple problem. , because How much she add something her acting into the story. Once the story is no longer focus on her and more into the main couple, it's no longer fun. It's just a
empty. I actually want this drama focus more into their character emotion rather than who is the culprit think and less focus into the case.

Better luck next time!

I might be the Only one who are so dissapointing with this drama. I watch it because of My Fav. PD Nim direct this drama, wish my luck for a good script coming on my way. THis drama has good potential setting, About past trauma, deal with moral behind earthquake event from different point of view. The setting from initial episode has been promising, but the problem has already there, which it seems the writers doesn't know how to develop interesting premise become more deep. Can you imagine if the second lead get proper develop? We might end up start to get interest to their side and not only understand, but feel about their point of view too.

As the story progress, the character other than the main couple become sideline to the point of ignoring their presence as a character, their character development is stagnant because their emotional turmoil are stil the same since earlier Episode. . How can you stand watching 16 hours the character behave in circle?  The writers start to throw histrionics (well because this is melodrama after all) and hope viewers will tune in, force noble idiot plot line so it will gain simpathy to viewers, and in the end, make an ending the viewers want.  The problem of Moon Soo's parent and The 2nd lead is resolved with simplicity, despite heavy subject they are carried.  The dialogue become repetitive, as if repeat the same case over and over again without moving on until it's too late to resolved in a more interesting way., This drama can be more real, more touching given the PD and some cast who put decent- to-good performances. because well, But instead, they only deliver message,  anyone is basically kind heart person, the only weak side are their past trauma how they come to overcome it. The End!. After all I come to think that's the power of good PD. Elevated the script, and alot of performances and scene really well executed . SO I can see why people rate it high.  I give this drama a good  rating for those two alone.

I have already finished this drama 2 month ago, but hestitated to make a full review. Is it worth to make a review of this drama? Admit, I was very dissapointed by what they have presence. . I have to get remind myself if this is the same writers who penned The Princess Man? It seems a superficial version of sageuk politic intrigue in modern day of The Princess Man. I was Looking for substance and subtlety, But as episode times goes, the show keep hitting me I'm just here for suspense that's going nowhere, presenting alot of fluffy which is nothing to do with the actual plot, alot of potential intriguing plot development that get scrapped (Like Human Shin past development), or intriguing narrative which get solved with lazy writing. At the end of the day, each character suffer from lack of proper development, including the lead Nam SHin III and Human Nam Shin.

The cast is good, But the character they potray is not good enough to warrant and show their acting skill more.

Rewatch Value? You should just rewatch for some good scene. There is quite some good moment which is for me quite touching. Especially a scene between a mother and both of her son

It's brilliant and a well made drama... I didn't think I would shed much tears for a drama, But I did, Especially when climax hit the fan, it's so satisfying to watch each scene can be so memorable. It gives me another perspective being a mother, and take various point of view from children perspective about their feeling and their right, which often we take it for grant.


The most important think is This drama doesn't suddenly losing track from their original intent from start to the last frame . Which is hard for kdrama, with all the pressure to come all the way from the board (and PPL), the reason there are still live shooting system, in order to increase rating. Each scene and music is perfectly blend with the emotion, which make the drama feel passionate and alive. More over, thanks to The actor who give the character justice and set each line from the writers on fire, which make it all rewarding.

This kind of drama gave me all hope to Kdrama once again, once in a while, in industry where everything produced by people who only produce a drama to work and making money. in a deem light, there is always bunch of people who will produce a drama with their soul and give their all to produce a memorable drama from the cast to the crew.... Being nominated in Cannes Festival ? Well deserved. Thank you all....

I'm so late in the game. Sorry, I know I should write a review when I'm done watching, But this drama is worth to get high rating even for just for the six episode I've watched. What make this drama is feels refreshing experience for me compare to any other show with similar premise. Heck, (I even rate this drama better than signal) for the fact this drama is meliticulously detail. I'm in awe of how structurally sound it's . What make it interesting each case is kind of related and can't be identified by face value. , the process of uncovering the truth is brutally realistic compare  to any regular korean drama procedural I've seen, that's why it take really long to get to the point. THe protagonist is a genius, IMO, but it doesn't give you the lisence to easily can judge human demeanor to commit a crime that easily, even with all clues pointing out to certain person, your judgement can be misleading. It's also interesting there is a possible alternative you also can become one of the culprit with all the evidence pointing out at you, can yourself also can be trust? Who is your friend? who is your enemy? Who is lying and who is telling the truth?   This kind of issue keep me glued to the screen. It's also allow us the viewers know more about our suspect and witness by digging them deeper.  The show is treat us as watchers  an intellegent viewers so they let us judge if what they are showing is what we get. And It's a plus in my book.
