    this is being aired currently here. not yet finish. so far, i pity and symphatize with hwang geum ran. and i dont like the father character, both fathers – han ji woong, geum ran’s biological father and adopted father, especially han ji woong (jang yong). he clearly rejects geum ran altho he knows she is his own daughter and clearly shows his preference and loyalty to jung won instead, and i wonder what kind of father actually he is. yet, when seo woo’s mother wanted to take her son back, he is described as chose seo woo over his company, to me that is kind of “inconsistent” and altho what geum ran’s did are not something to be condoned yet i dislike what han ji woong did many times more, his is unsavory character. somehow i dont really like the characters of Jang Yong, e.g. i didnt like his character in Miss Ripley as well and i dont remember the others but i dont have a positive image of him as a result of the characters that he played.
    i wonder about Kim Sang Ho, as an actor does he keep his hair that way as a requirement from his agency or directors..?? he is not really someone easy on the eyes and yet he keeps his hairdo or hair style that way – to emphasize his look – being not easy on the eyes..?? and i wonder too about his character as son in low who supports the gambling behavior of his father in law, kind of unsavory too.
    to me, this series – on a scale of 1 – 10 – only scores 7.

    I agree that geum rans real dad was really very unfair and his behavior led her to do many wrongs just to seek his love.

    Seung Joon is like a block of wood….no reason for the two girls to fight over him.
