  7. 7 : Fado Revere Says:

    I too am looking forward to this drama. The lovely Jin Hye and Sang Woo are an unlikely pair but they were likeable in their previous drama together.

  8. 8 : Kdrama Crazy Says:

    It looks like this drama would be a little different from other dramas. Let’s see how it will go. 🙂

  9. 9 : mymy Says:

    han ji hye should be more on romantic comedy it fits her

  10. 10 : gigi Says:

    Superb chemistry for lee sang woo n han ji hye…like them so much.ñ

  11. 11 : annmasae Says:

    Totally agree with @10 gigi. The main couple are great together.
    I look forward to this drama every week. Hope the ratings get better.

  12. 12 : John Says:

    Just finished “Make A Wish” and noticed three actresses from that show have similar roles in this one.

  13. 13 : Drama Fan Says:

    The actress listed above for Lee Sa Rang, the little girl is incorrect. I would like to get some info on Sa Rang and Mi Deum. They are doing a good job.

    Chairman Jin was really nice to nasty Shin Nan Sook when her husband died. So why is Shin now making a fool out of Jin and her son? I didn’t get to what happened at the Firefly Festival, so maybe something will be revealed then.

  14. 14 : arizonafan Says:

    Oh Mi-Joo is a idiot. She leaves two young children to handle the restaurant so she can try out to become a singer. No problem w/trying to be a singer, but how stupid can she be to leave two little children by theirselves. Were they supposed to cook chicken etc. if any diners came in etc. etc.??!!! And then Mi-Joo and Dong Joo beg the grandmother to forgive her. How stupid are they?

    Dong Joo is pretty gullible thinking Sabina is going to help her look for her mother. DJ and Pil-Seung know that Sabina stole the list of participants that were at the Festival. And DJ believes Sabina is going to help her. Get real.

    I wish Pil-Seung would quit acting like an child or whatever at times w/his grandmother. It is not funny or cute.

  15. 15 : Andrew Says:

    I thought Mi-Joo and Dong Joo were living together?????? Now all of a sudden M-J lost her apartment and it was rented to some one else???? And now she has no place to live??? So continuing to live off Kang Nam-Doo. Why doesn’t she live with Dong Joo and help out with the 2 children instead of leaving them alone all the time.?

    I hope cute Ki Young does not fall for Mi-Joo. She is a whiner and a ding bat. Not sure she even needs to be in the drama.

  16. 16 : Sun Flower Says:

    You would think Han Soo-Mi who is doing research on Sabina and her mother would go to a different restaurant instead of he restaurant that the employees from her company hang out to meet with the person who is doing the search on them. How stupid is this??? Perfect timing for Sabina to just happen to be there at that particular spot at that time.

    If it was me, I would have met the person miles away from the company.

  17. 17 : Sandy Says:

    Sun Flower @ 16, that is the epitome of K-dramas–stupid characters. That’s why it was so refreshing for me to watch the drama The Story of Minglan. It’s a Chinese historical drama, but oh my, it’s the best drama I’ve ever watched. It’s 73 episodes; however, after watching the last episode, I turned around and immediately watched it again. I’ve watches drama probably about 20 plus times–it’s just that good. What makes it so good is evil does not constantly win–actually, evil barely wins because the good people are just as smart, if not smarter than the evil people. Not only that, you have a strong female lead that gives it back harder than it was dished out to her. Best of all, she has a strong male lead that doesn’t take crap off of anyone and supports her 100%….a couple that is devoted to each other.

    The writer who wrote The Story of Minglan wrote the story intelligently and realistically–especially for that time. I think a lot of K-drama writers are lazy and think they must have a lead female who is weak and stupid, a male lead who is weak or dumb, and just a lot of illogical scenes that make no sense; they are forever using cliches of amnesia, drunken leads, weak female, etc.

    After watching that drama, I’m spoiled–I want better writing from these writers.

  18. 18 : Sun Flower Says:

    @ Sandy —- I agree with you. Some of these Korean dramas are really stupid.

    Thanks for the info on The Story of Minglan. I read the story on Wikipedia. Will have to watch it when have time.

    Since Dong Joo can’t remember anything from the car accident, why doesn’t some one think of putting her under hypnosis to bring her back to the accident???? That would bring everything to the front. Geez…. why drag everything out.

  19. 19 : tamin Says:

    I agree with sandy, almost of k drama have similar plot with weak writing. I watched the story of ming lan and highly recommended it for watching. I think k drama have to revise every thing the first.

  20. 20 : Andrew Says:

    I loved the 2 children that played Mideum (Kang Jun-Hyuk) and Sarang (Jung Seo-Yeon). This was their first film and they did so well.

    The ending was good as Sabina and her mother didn’t get off from everything they did, but the Ghost part was weird.
