    What a well-written and beautifully executed drama!! I get restless the minute the episode ends especially if i have to wait another week! Drives me crazy!!! What is KBS thinking shortening it???

    CoolBeans Says:

    The superb acting of Jang Hyuk was the glue that held this drama together and made me return to keep watching despite the failed attempt at a murder mystery at the beginning and the comedic teenager-like police woman who ran all over the hospital and solved no cases. Unfortunately, the drama got better too late in the chopped up storyline. Viewers in Korea who impact the rating system are harsh judges when a drama does not fit the expected pattern and is slow to reveal its true worth like this drama. So, there is no recovery from the poor ratings which always lead to a shortened ending.

    For me this drama was good only for leading actor, he was good to play his role. The failure for this drama due to they casted the wrong actress. They should be casted more familiar actress and not too young like this one. There was no chemistry between leading actor and actress. The romance between these two were just weird for me. Now the last ratings was toooo low: 2+….well it’s done..it’s done….:(

    This drama is so beautiful just like its title said so.
    Lately the ratings went lower- I know why. After that announcement about this drama being cut down, I got disheartened that my heart was not in it. I almost didn’t want to watch episode 13 cos I hate to see the story being murdered due to its slash down!
    Boo Hoo so sad ! Jang Hyuk you are
    Great! And all the cast and crew, all of you are great for hanging on strong!
    KBS is …. No GOOD!

    Love this drama so much. I dont care with the rating at Korea. Especially now everyone give their all attention at dram doctor which lead by park Shin Hye. Yeah she so beautiful. But this heroin is more cute. I think this drama will get more fan around the world from day to day. So kbs will regret because of reduction episode from 16 ep to 14 ep only. Arghh. Whatever, i love all about this drama including the ost. I enjoy it very much

    aniszrfh Says:

    Jang Hyuk’s acting was superbbbbb I can’t even believe how much he transformed from the lovey dovey mellow guy in fated to love you to his character in this drama. The story is much better than doctors, I have to say. But sadly I can’t feel the two leads chemistry at all. Park So Dam acting is far away for Jang Hyuk’s level. If only the producer chose a better lead actress, maybe the rating wouldn’t be so low like this. I remember when So Dam started crying in this drama I was like wtf gurl you called that acting? You’ve got to be kidding me. Jang Hyuk could overlap Song Joong Ki’s popularity if the crew casted a better actress.

    after ep. 3, i can understand the comments against the female lead actor, a casting boo-boo. but i will follow through.

    mylz Says:

    The rating is low maybe bcoz the casting choices is not well selected aside JY … but i agree this drama has a great story…needs and required a “beautiful mind” to understand…and jy is in his best superb…

    The writer of this drama should be a very proficient one in Korea. Very talented actors and actresses are selected to perform.

    tigerb Says:

    this is a very good story but one that the s.k. viewers and i do not agree on. it’s not to their taste,
    as the ratings show, maybe because the plot is unique.
    a neurosurgeon made an ‘error’ when he operated on an orphan boy, young oh. feeling guilty of the result which would badly affect y.o.’s personality, he adopted yo and taught yo intelligently, objectively how to react, respond, etc. to emotional stimulus. what he failed to give, teach and show yo is love and affection, thinking that the defective part of the brain controlling emotions could not make yo respond to such feelings. yo grew up to be a brilliant neurosurgeon himself, but almost robotic, not emphatic in his dealings with people and patients, that behind his back, and he himself thinks that he is a psychopath, which is a bad description of someone who has anti-social disorder. fortunately for yo. someone fell for him and who was willing to stay by him, and maybe eventually yo could develop normal emotional reactions, etc. , after all it was revealed that there was really no error when his father operated on him as a boy. the father neurosurgeon was made to believe of the error by his friend who was then jealous and envious of the neuro’s promotion. if the father knew that his surgery was a success, it would have been a different story. reminds me of a quote (Aristotle) which can apply to the father neurosurgeon: “educating the mind without educating the heart is not educating at all.” it’s a very good watch and jang hyuk did not disappoint.

    @ admin: by the way, young oh was a neurosurgeon not a cardiothoracic surgeon. the cardiothoracic surgeon was hyun suk joo.

    Why you have cut the episodes. it was very interesting drama, the cast was great and I HAVE LEARNED a lot of things about anatomy, my body-brain, heart,lungs. This drama was very interesting for me and with new openings.

    catwoman Says:

    I love this drama, it is not like the other medical drama. I love Jang Hyuk. He is a great actor. His acting is superb. Thumbs up. The plot of this drama is good and the story line is different. I don’t understand why KBS2 have to cut it short. I was so surprised when I watch episode 14 and said it is the final episode. I was so sad because I want to see more of Jang Hyuk…I will definitely miss him. I don’t know what’s wrong with KBS2, why they have to shorten this drama. I see other drama from KBS2 is worse than this one (if they think this drama is bad). This is not fair and I really disappointed with KBS2. I hope KBS2 will invite Jang Hyuk to do another drama. Jang Hyuk opa – fighting. You did a terrific job who cares about the rating is low.
