    I’m so curious about how the story ends… This Korean novela is still airing here in the Philippines.. But I can’t wait for it to finish… Anyone? Pls… I like Anthony Han a lot or SSH…He’s so sexy and gorgeous… Yeah, like what other had commented about mi seo or SSK, I don’t like her acting skills… She always has that blank and same facial expression in different situations…

    well i haven’t finish watching but i saw the ending…its open ended though they say they like each other but its more better if they somehow get married or date for some time wherein people will see how happy they are.

    Mel Says:

    i love this drama,i hope there is a part 2 since the ending is a hanging story..giving the audience the thoughts if they end up together or not

    Mel Says:

    I’ve read that some are not satisfied about the ending. But for me, it is enough and it is just right to end it like that. It’s just like, starting over again after a complicated relationship. All in all, this series is a MASTERPIECE! The storyline is so good. Two thumbs up for the writer. I can’t predict what will happen next that’s why the anticipation is so high. This is a story about friendship and loyalty (Anthony & Charlie), family, forgiveness (Anthony, his mother and Tae Min), true love, obsession, crime, passion, humility, committing mistakes and how you stand to correct it and how you handle life’s difficulties! For me, this is the best tv series that I watched! Hope for the Book 2. :)

    My all time favorite ranking in my top 5 list. Well Im kind of biased because Song Sueng Hun is my new found favorite actor after discovering Korean film and drama as an entertainment by accident recently. Im hooked. Hollywood move over now. Korean films for me from now on. You have the most gorgeous artists and screen writers. Probably the best in the world. Great we live in a time when I and Asian American in the US 10000 miles away and yet I can be in Seoul virtually enjoying an illusion of life down there when I want to.
    This drama touched my heart on so many levels but as the title suggests the one area that I so appreciate the most is the portrayal by the lead actor of the profound quality of love that most women in an ideal world would love and probably would die to love back. I know it probably does not exist this relentless expression of love by the man who through all odds will not stop pursuing the object of his love, but OK its a story, and we all know it. Reality is a painful pill to swallow but the good news is that we see glimpses of this perfect love in our lives day to day and when we do we must try to capture every moment it touches us and let it be ours.
    As to the ending I read it this way. At this point each has unloaded themselves with all the garbage of life’s insurmountable complications in each of their lives, completely empty of pain form their past like a massive rainfall cleaning them ever so pure, and truly they are free to choose if they want to start loving each other again. Life is always great when you realize that after the mess you created or was created for you you have been given a second chance. You must drop everything that hinders you and run like the wind embracing that second chance never letting it go. That’s what I saw in the very ending. I watched the ending many times just so I can resolve what I would like to take away from the end. And its good.
    Song Seung Hun’s movies and drama from now on.

    I LOVE IT!! I felt like I was on a emotional roller coaster with the different twist and turns in the story. It shows exactly what can and will happen when you don’t know all the facts and just believe what people tell you. I also loved the fact it was also centered around a book store. I love books! I hope there will be a second season!!

    usa-mary Says:

    This drama would have been a great one if it had not been manipulated by the Korean viewing audience. Its amazing how the sponsors, producer, director and writer(s) are effected like that. Making changes episode to episode to meet their viewing audiences out cries. It debunks all creative property of the writer. IMHO

    Aveare Says:

    if you are watching this drama you will know if the writer is a woman. She was unable to describe the character of the man.

    and in this drama is very strange ending. too much force to the happy ending. women look cheap. character is not clear. You will find a lot of resistance characters in this drama. This is the worst drama.

    good figures in the end it was jailed. the evil it is only aware of.

    wisemufasa Says:

    this was the most ridiculous story line. the girl cheats and gets the guy in the end. she didn’t deserve either boy. ssh should have been a more confident man and known when to give up his love. i hated her facial expressions in the entire drama. she had a sour face and never smiled when he showed her so much love. it was unrealistic. he should have ended up with baek seong joo who truly and sincerely loved him. she was a noble woman and he would have loved her if he let himself. the seo mi do girl was a bad actor, she had bad attitude, and she definitely did not deserve him in the end. waste of time to watch this ridiculous story. if that is a happy ending, then i don’t knw what misery is. so disappointed. there was so much potential to this drama. but it got ruined.

    Leave Says:

    This drama depicts the evil woman, cheap met with a good man. but the authors describe a man too stupid. will be obvious that the writer of women. if I only watch this Korean drama. I probably would conclude that the Korean woman was cheap. but it’s only fantasy writer alone.
