    Must watch drama – Gumiho – Tale of a Fox child. – The picture look scary but actually the drama is not scary but exciting. The actors and actresses including the kids all acted very very well.
    Jung Kyu & Yeon Yi met the 1st time & catching fire flies at the river side – so sweet
    My Girlfriend is a Gumiho (a comedy) – also very nice.

    I had to watch this “Glass Castle”.
    Got so involved with the episodes, especially
    Minjoo & Jung Song. I was a bit surprised with it’s ending.
    Since Minjoo & Jung Song blended well
    on the screen. Will there be a part 2? By the way who is
    the writer?
    Thank you!

    this drama was actually good. though I was disappointed with the ending. I wanted them to out win the manipulative father but they end up given in. I hope there’s a part where Minjoo and Joon song will have their second chance

    josh77 Says:

    the drama is good..very well plot..but the ending well so sad that they didnt end together..it shows true love for both lead stars ..but they sacrificed it instead..perhaps theyre love was not meant to be..so just let it be…its an idealistic decision but emotionally stressfull..@ sigh..i hope and looking forward for a drama with a happy ending so i will watch it with a smile till the end..i like lee jin wok…ur charming…no wonder choi ji woo fell into u..

    mitch Says:

    The ending was so sad and heartbreaking.. The 2nd to the last episode was the most crying episode in Glass Castle (City Of Glass). When Min-Joo talked to Joon Song about their relationship, I was hoping that Joon Song agreed with Min-Joo that they gt back their relationship. This drama made me cry. Joon Song and Min-Joo should be back together, and Suk Jin with Joon-Hee as well.

    unsatisfied with the ending.how does money overpower everything..and why the world is accepting that kind of a parent..give us a happier ending in glass castle2..

    Rai Says:

    The plot was full of unexpected twists and suspense and emotionally-stirring situations until the very end, which was awful, in my opinion. I suppose the writers were aiming to really ingrain the harshness of reality into the viewers or to conjure a wholly surprising ending. I think the main couple had great potential to be married out of true love, but they divorced due to misunderstanding and unjustified familial devotions. In the end, money overpowered love. Depressing. Just not my taste.

    Helen Says:

    The ending sucks the whole story which has already perfect and the sacrifices of kim jun sung. What’s the point of his sacrifices to min ju along the story? They are really love each other, but why, script writer? Dont they have rights to be a happy couple? The ending is making me dissapointed
