  2. 2 : Basuha Says:

    Damm I think Park Yong Ha is so “HOT” every since I seen him in the drama “On Air” Can’t wait to watch this drama I hope it as intelligence as Cain and Abel since it a action drama. As for park Si Yeon, she one actress I can’t see playing the lead actess. She don’t have that nice, face. She play the b*** so much bettter. I did see her in one drama where she try to be a leading actress and even in that drama ( When Spring come) she come across as the bad girl. I give it a chance because it PARK YONG HA!

    one of my fave this year…..there’s excitement in almost every episode…..love park yong ha always and also love kim kang woo as a Do-woo, first time for me to love the bad guy in a story, but still wants my hero to have the happy ending….

  14. 14 : nu2you Says:

    This drama is exciting and suspenseful. Each episode is pack with storylines that keeps you thinking and analyzing. Just have to watch what’s going up next. The ratings sucks, but does not matter. Each character is unique and all the actors are superb. Worth watching !
    Can’t wait for the next sub. Thank you subbers for thinking of us (non-Koreans). Great work!

  15. 15 : cathy Says:

    This drama is similar to Ocean 11 of Hollywood , fun to watch .

  16. 16 : burberry Says:

    Is the lead actress the ex-GF of Eric? Was she the baddie in My Girl too?

  17. 17 : cathy Says:

    I wish Lee joon Ki as Kim Shin , nothing wrong with PSH but i think this
    role LJK would do better , just my opinion .

  18. 18 : honey b Says:

    Love this drama, it’s not only love story drama but also suspenful drama. Really enjoy watching it.

  19. 19 : Ibuzzz Says:

    Good drama. Enjoy so much!

    Just hoping, Do Woo ended up in Mental Hospital and Kyung Ah
    remain as his wife. ‘Genius’ Kyung Tae ended up with Eun Soo. Kim Shin
    and Jae Myung remain SINGLE in this drama and become extremely
    very rich!!!.

    Good work to all!! Thank you subbers!

  21. 21 : animesmi Says:

    personally, i’m still hoping that kyung ah and kim shin will be back tog and that kyung tae ends up with eun soo though not sure how it will turn out. kyung tae is just too sweet around eun soo awww and he’s actually really handsome, and same birthday as me^_^wee 😛
    well i’m at ep 16 now and waiting for more updates, hope it’ll be completed soon and wanting to see happy ever after… i agree, lots of action here and so much thinking wow and both the bad and good guy are really good, really versatile, great actors. best of luck to all the cast and thks for subbing this drama

  22. 22 : Flamboyant Says:

    This movie is okay, but kinda creepy for me, b/c it seems like DW in-love with ES (not love). I actually want DS and ES to be together in the end. I don’t like DW ex-girlfriend, she’s just too greedy… DW properly end up in the mental hospital (I don’t want him to die, even if he’s a villain) I just like him too much…

  23. 23 : Rumenah Slamat Says:

    Oh no…I’m at ep 18, someone is being shot!!
    There is Kim Shin and Do Woo’s right man…
    Very tense…looking forward for the next episode…

  24. 24 : burberry Says:

    Well, I’m hoping that this drama will have a happy ending considering all the hardships everyone had to go through as from the start.

    I’ve only seen a few episodes so far, and I don’t really know on how the story line has built up.

    I HOPE that Do Woo doesn’t die (having him admitted to a hospital would be good with chances of a recovery and leading a happy life later on). Kyun Ah will help him with his fast recovery.

    Kim Shin will make his revenge & will turn up to be a successful entrepreneur. He will be able to provide a decent home & life for his sister in law & children. I prefer that he ends up with Eun Soo though.

    Rumenah is already at ep18 with a few more to go before it ends. I’ll guess that Do Woo’s right hand man will get shot.

  25. 25 : Ibuzzz Says:

    I’m anxiously waiting for the last episode…and when I get to watch, the ending “Spoiler” is quite sad….

    My prediction/hope for the end of story is 75% correct…anyway it’s fun to watch. Gook work!!!

  26. 26 : cathy Says:

    Pretty good drama , meaningful ending but too sad ES died . I’m impressed
    with two lead actresses acting skills, especially ES character , this actress acting skill is outstanding , she make me like her character so much . Her relationship with her brother is so touching , so pure , not incest at all . When i watched them i did not feel disgusting but full of caring between brother and sister .It’s worth to watch .

  27. 27 : cathy Says:

    PS , By the end KS realizes that he loves ES , he’s unable to fight to hate DW anymore , he forgives DW .

  28. 28 : danielle Says:

    sorry guys. i have to say this is one of the worst korean dramas i’ve watched in years. don’t get me wrong i have nothing against the actors and actresses. performance is all fine. just the scriptwriter doesn’t know what he/she is talking about. so many places that don’t make any sense at all. yes you ignore some of the illogical things when watching dramas as there bounds to be something that doesn’t go smooth. but there are really too many weak spots in this one. i like park yon ha that’s why i watched this. but sorry just a total waste of time.

  29. 29 : lotus Says:

    i think relationship between DW and ES make me confused.it is because i’ve just watch only a few epsd of this drama.did DW loves his sister??and is it DW is not a real brother of ES??DW loves ES more than he love KA??

  30. 30 : kongaishang Says:

    woah!!! the girl in the middle looks so efen-hot with her leg peeking through the slit of her dress!!! nice title… it feels like this drama will give me a feel of testosterone rush…

  31. 31 : iso Says:

    what with the end. any one explain please!!!!!

  32. 32 : deanaz Says:

    I’am didn’t understant about the ending…why DW kiss his why after KS talk to him.. Is DW just pretend to be sick? And so sad, why ES mustto be died, KS and ES should to get happiness in the end

  33. 33 : irae Says:

    nice drama…but actually i don’t like the ending. why should ES die and why KS didn’t get happiness. so i hope this drama have the 2nd part, where someone has the same face like ES meet KS and then they fall in love each other….

  34. 34 : Wee NWK Says:

    from my understanding, the ending is… Dowu only pretending to be sick/ crazy to avoid him to be sentence into jail… Kim Shin quite happy with his own life and only him knew that Dowu didnt sick and has the records of criminal of the shadows gang… so Kim Shin knew Dowu will use the record after release from the hospital… that is the reason Dowu kissed his wife in front of Kim Shin, the smiled at him, because Shin’s thought was right! :-)
    but poor pretty Eun Su :-( i hope she get together with Shin…

  35. 35 : cancan Says:

    an amazingly smart drama, full of twists and thrill/suspense… yet so many people didnt realize it enough to watch it.
    the ratings for this drama has been at its lowest (6.2%)-highest(8.?)

    even though the ratings werent too good, i highly recommend this drama.

  36. 36 : ahhh Says:

    im sooooo mad i was watching it on kbs world and then i went on vacation half way throught so the whole rest of the drama i didnt get to see… :(

  48. 48 : peter Says:

    currently watching this drama. I must say, it has a nice story and cast…

  49. 49 : anonymous Says:

    It’s a pity this comment comes too late for Park Yong Ha, but not for the other actors and actresses in this wonderful drama. This drama is interesting because the action is reasonably moderate, not resorting to violence to impress the viewers. The leading actor ( Park Yong Ha )moves in harmony with the other characters. His being impressive is about his nice, innocent traits, but above all his acting as natural and easy as if in real life. Park Yong Ha has all the required qualities to be an outstanding actor, whose name could reach beyond Korea. It’s a great loss to the korean entertainment industry. It’s unfair not to mention the contribution of the remaining actors. Everyone has done good job.

  50. 50 : ann Says:

    Good drama,it’s worthing to see.good acting and good actor.love this drAma…the best !!

  51. 51 : louis vuitton Says:

    yeah right whatz with the end.,

    is their some kind of a Part 2 for this one

  52. 52 : toh quan ming Says:

    I love this drama because it is very touching and nice story.

  53. 53 : sowon Says:

    this is very beautiful drama with classy acting from Park Yong ha and Kim Kang Woo..the open end was very smart..i would have wished for part 2 but with Yona absence ,I can`t imagine it..however,it is really deep drama..discusses the concept of evil,revenge,love and the power of media..however,it proves that thousands of eggs can really beat a rock..I love this drama!!and i am in love with Kim Shin(Yona) a great man who tries to protect his people..he does mistakes yet he always learns to be better man..it is a pity that Yona didnot get such a lesson but i don`t convict him or accuse him..just blame out of love..and moan out of pain..

  54. 54 : jamie Says:

    In this, and in so many other korean series, it would be helpful to understand its Spanish translation, re-translated from English. It is so poor!! Not to say the timing of the subtitles. On both accounts, one cannot really understand fully the story. Also in common is the presence of the Catholic Church, though understandably since the money comes from it to some significant extent. It simply does not fit into the Asian culture. The East is not the place for Catholism to seek refuge from the West.

  57. 57 : JJ Says:

    I watched this drama because of Park Si Yeon. Even though she is one of the leads & on the poster. Her character seem secondary to Han Yeo Woon. I wished her character would have more of a spice. More memorable. More chemistry & scenes with both male leads would have been better as well.

  58. 58 : elijavier Says:

    very interesting and entertaining. love to watch this series

  59. 59 : Hanako Says:

    One of the good action movie, full of revenge and criminal act. Poor thing that the actual main actor died in real life, but I am sure many of his fans will remember him..he is one of the good actors somehow

  60. 60 : Mr t Says:
