  1. 1 : Thomas W Says:

    You said you like me, right?
    Do you want to shoot a reckless drama with me?

    Was that last line a metaphor, or did she really propose they make a drama?

  2. 2 : Chae Won Says:

    The wicked Hong Baek Hee surreptitiously keeps So Yoo away from her son cos she thinks her son will be held back by her. So she arranges for So Yoo to be around Seo Joon more. She thinks her scheme maintains a clear path for her son’s ascent toward the top of the heap.

  3. 3 : Graceland for Cow Flatulance Says:

    When Hong Baek Hee tried to swallow what I think are sleeping pills to off herself, that was NOT something a parent would do in front of her child. It’s an incestuous obsession. Shouldn’t they censor it? Lol! The actress or director’s lost the plot I believe.

  4. 4 : chelli Says:

    this drama is terrible.

  5. 5 : Chae Won Says:

    It is unethical to allow a non-family member access to personal medical information about an individual when the individual is an adult capable of seeking that info themselves. The practise invites corruption and puts the patient in danger of potential malicious exploits. So why is SK laws lax? Why not put laws in place to mitigate the danger? Or is the script writer taking liberties here?

  6. 6 : R Hill Says:

    Latest, the writers have just been sectioned off under the mental heath act, mama boy and his mother are so close it seems there is an abnormal act going on

  7. 7 : Glee Says:

    This drama is just like ALL 100+ episode dramas…TERRIBLE! It just goes from one absurdity to another, so off the rails, nothing is believable. There isn’t one likable person in this drama, including the lead couples whom, I suppose, we are expected to root for. There is only so much stupid viewers can stomach. A drunk monkey could write a better script. Writers and PDs, you should use a fake name in the credits so you can show your face in public. If you aren’t embarrassed at this hot mess, you are just shameless.

  8. 8 : arizona Says:

    This drama is a scandal. One of the WORST ever. Actors and writers both should be ashamed and ask the public for forgiveness.

  9. 9 : phoenix Says:

    So glad this horrible drama is over. Good riddance. SBS usually has good daytime dramas, but they totally missed the boat on this one.

  10. 10 : Mike Says:

    Ms. Hong is truly mentally sick. She has a weird relationship with her son. We now know he was the product of a rape. The end of the drama is near. I hope the rapist, Ms. Hong, the father’s mistress and the rest get “theirs”. Actor who plays Ms. Hong gets an award. Good job. The tall lady, Ms Lee, is my new favorite actor and person. I hope to see her in more dramas. I know how she feels in real life. Good job Ms. Lee.

  11. 11 : Mike Says:

    Does this guy die or not? Someone please tell me.

  12. 12 : Kdrama fan Says:

    This is a stupid drama. The writer lacks common sense and imagination on how to develop the story. Lots of unnecessary physical abuse scenes make the drama comic, rather than realistic.
