  35. 35 : Goong Ju Says:

    Great drama. One of my best drama. The storyline was so well written. The love between LEE DONG WOOK & OH YUN SOO was so pasionate, so sweet but yet bitter. LEE DONG WOOK’s acting was marvellous, he put the best in. His character as Lee Joon Soo made him outstanding. I just love this drama so much. Highly recommend.

  36. 36 : marina Says:

    oh lee dong wook so handsome and his performance so much ok!
    its just that dont like the plot it made lee dong wook a psychotic my gosh he deserves a nice ending with that kind of acting!

  38. 38 : seshumaru Says:

    im just new to the whole korean drama thing and boy this kind of drama is makin me nuts lol …like i the way lee dong wook acts is just amazin lookin forward to this series hope its really something good 😉

  39. 39 : veronique Says:

    The drama is very nice, I enjoyed it but did not like how the wife can sacrifice her beautiful children for the love of a young guy. Having childrem mysefl, I would do whatever it takes to be with them. I believe in love but it comes in a package my dear. It is a drama ofcourse, but the writer or realsateur should give women a credit. At some point she resisted and towards the end she is behaving like fool!!! Drama!!! It is a very nice stroy!!!! Waiting to the end.

  40. 40 : yara Says:

    I liked Oh Yun Soo in Jumong.
    I’m gonna watch this one too

  41. 41 : otai Says:

    i dun really love the plot of this drama, which is very slow & full of sadness…im watching it just becoz of LDW…i’ll be waiting all LDW dramas no matter wat is the story about.sarang hae LDW

  42. 42 : jazz Says:

    LDW acting in this show is really amazing. He acts completely different from ‘My girl’. He put up his best performance in this drama and with OYS, they look awesome together as couple eventhou OYS is older then him. Love this drama, nice and sweet but with sad ending. They should end-up together.

  43. 43 : Ronah Says:

    WOoOW! Allow me to congratulate you for your extraordinary performance in this drama. You are a real actor. Wish you all the best! (:

  44. 44 : Lumi Says:

    Lee Dong Wook’s fans will be disappointed if they think this drama is similar to MY GIRL. It’s a well written and acted DRAMA for a more mature audience since it deals with adultery, divorce and how a family is affected by these situations. There’s no comedic relief as in other lighther dramas.

    I liked it very much. It is different.

    LDW must have done it to prove he CAN act and succeeded.

  45. 45 : deanaz Says:

    Great drama… A different plot with the other, coz now theres so many mature woman having date with the young man. Lee dong wook looks georgeous and he gets the best act in this drama, even the ending not fair for him. He almost be suffering in his life, so why can’t he gets the happy ending

  46. 46 : magsie Says:

    Very good series. I like the story line. LDW put up his best performance here.

  47. 47 : Sony Says:

    The story’s good.
    But a bit boring.
    The best point is in the ending.

  48. 48 : korean lover Says:

    stupid show, wasted a nice handsome actor (Lee Dong Wook) ! don’t understand why take up this role , such unhealthy storyline especially for conservative korean ! i like him alot after watching my gal.

  49. 49 : arnie Says:

    sorry, i dont like the story!

  50. 50 : Calvin Says:

    is it a really dissapointing drama?
    i haven’t watched the drama yet..

    but i want to watch this drama…

  51. 51 : soo jin Says:

  58. 58 : mel Says:

    sound like so interesting.. i want to watch this movie….

  59. 59 : nining Says:

    good drama.. love to see it,,

  60. 60 : billydkid Says:

    although the stars played so well in this series, i would comment i don’t like it. It is so downright “Heavy” and i felt so emotionally exhausted after watching this. i could not understand why he threw his life away just like that. Life is so precious, even sick people cling so desperately to life and don’t want to leave this world…. except the lead star in this series??????. i really don’t understand what is his motive to commit suicide???? if you want happy endings, stay away from this series!!

  61. 61 : Anny Says:

    Love this drama, but..ending very very sad…! Feel sorry for Joon soo in this drama.

  62. 62 : toh quan ming Says:

    I love this korean drama because it is very interesting and it makes me cry.

  63. 63 : kim bora Says:

    I agreed with you billydkid. The ending make me tired….some more as a mother hye jin cannot abondon her kids…she should enjoy herself since her husband very rich….muahhhhhaaaa

  64. 64 : hirmah Says:

    i dont like this drama..i buy this drama coz i love Lee Dong Wook in drama my girl..but im so disappointed..

  65. 65 : addy Says:

  68. 68 : zhia_aala Says:

    1st ep kinda boring…..watch it bcoz of dong-wook and yoon-soo……later on I get it heat up to undertand the plot…….wow….one of the kind!!!!! wish korean scriptwriter can produce more “OUT OF THE BOX” drama…….no more stuck-up mother in-law….oh pleaseeeeee………..

  69. 69 : deepashna Says:

    i love the serive

  70. 70 : Andreia Carvalho Says:

    This shows how couples are unhappy when they are forced to marry and live together when they dont love eachother.
    Hye jin was never a happy woman with her husband and being forced to be with him was killing her inside to the point when she wanted to kill herself.

    Deep Story and it doesnt have a happy ending but there’s a lot to think about in it.
