    I think I will like the story of min woo and lee min jung the most, because of jang hyuk will bertray his gf (min jung) and fall in love with a first daughter of a chaebol (kim hee ae,she looks old btw, don’t like her!), and min jung will get her revenge by having a relationship with a chaebol too (play by no min woo; he is a playboy and a rebel in his family, but he sincerely in love with min jung and he is a younger brother of kim he ae, whose having relationship with jang hyuk) but no min woo have a cancer and he probably will die while min jung is a nurse assign to nursing him.

    She plans a revenge by throws her soul away, becoming the woman of a son of chaebol named Yoo Myung Joon.
    Yoo Myung Joon is the patient of the hospital VIP room where Jung Yun is assigned who suffered terminal stage of cancer.

    Yoo In Hye (40 years old)
    The eldest daughter of Yoo Pil Sang family.
    Yoo Pil Sang seems like avarage rich family, but his real wealth is in the same size with Samsung and Hyundai.
    Yoo In Hye has 2 older brothers, a younger brother (her biological brother) and a younger sister, which 5 of them came from several different mothers.
    She grew up with her biological younger brother (Yoo Myung Joon) and her mother who was abandoned by her father.

    In order to escape from the negative image of “the abandoned daughter of a chaebol”, Yoo In Hye left Korea to USA . During this period of time when she was away, her mother started suffering some mental disorder. Thus, the job of looking after her fell in the hands of Myung Joon.

    She attended university and got MBA from USA, then gained experience as securities broker in Wall Street. Now she is the president of her own multi-billion dollar hedge fund.

    Yoo Myung Joon (31 years old)
    The younger brother of Yoo In Hye. Unlike his sister, he has a more softer and more delicate character.
    He believes that money is the reason to the misfortune that he has suffered. Therefore, he finds that money is evil and despicable.
    Due to the prejudice towards money and his own birth, Myung Joon seems cynical and waste his time by partying from dusk til dawn. He was like this till Jung Yun appeared in his life.
    Myung Joon found himself down with terminal stage cancer and the nurse who was in-charge of him was Jung Yun.
    As time goes by, there was some chemistry and love blossoming between the two.

    @K-addict
    You are welcome.. I have read about the synopsis from someone blog, (Ockoala & yuyaindou), its very complete describing each character in this drama, I just want to share it with all of the korean drama fans. I think you are right the sinopsis about this drama in here is very short and not interesting at all.. I know I will love this drama, because I love all the cast and the story seems promising.. :)

  34. 34 : Dreamboy82 Says:

  36. 36 : Ashley Says:

    I like Lee Min Jung, she shows her beauty n natural look !

    but the lead actor Jang Hyuk is terrible …

  37. 37 : via Says:

    why the rating is bad? I have read from hancinema.net that the rating is 11.5% why there is the difference report?

  38. 38 : KDaddict Says:

    Hi via,
    Thanks for the hard work in giving us character descriptions. I think I should change my handle: Looks like I am not as much a KDaddict as some of you. hee hee.
    I haven’t started watching this series yet. I like to wait till they’ve at least shown 5-6 eps, cos it is hard to tell if a show is any good in the very beginning.

  39. 39 : Wen Says:

    After watching esp 1, i think this drama is quite promising! Hope it will turn out good!

  40. 40 : via Says:

    oohhh can’t wait for the second episode tonight…

  41. 41 : lovekdrama Says:

    finished watching ep 1.i find it interesting….

  42. 42 : Charlie Says:

    I like this drama, such topic is rare in K-dramas and sounds interesting, using stock market and Hedge Fund as background. Looking forward to seeing how the storyline will develop.

  43. 43 : kyuqi Says:

    i can’t wait for no min woo!im watching this because of this adorable handsome no min woo.lee min jung,the main actress is very pretty in here!

  44. 44 : via Says:

    love this drama.. because of the cast is so perfect.. love them ; Jang hyuk,lee min jung, and no min woo..

  45. 45 : via Says:

    No min wo is a bad boy here.. but love to see his role here as a playboy.. makes him even more interesting for me.. ;)

  46. 46 : lovekdrama Says:

    grrrr…i hate KDH character.

  47. 47 : via Says:

    wow.. the rating is increasing, i hope it will increase more since Dream high is already wrapped up..

  48. 48 : via Says:

    I can’t wait for tonight… episode 4 and 5 for tomorrow…

  49. 49 : KDaddict Says:

    So glad this is good drama. Wonderful match between Jang Hyuk and Kim Hee Ae, in looks and acting ability. Exciting story. Not just so slow-moving soap opera. Hurray!

  50. 50 : via Says:

    poor jung yun.. i feel sorry for her.. she must have love KDH so much..

  51. 51 : via Says:

    lee min jung role as jung yun is remind me of Eugene in Baker King Kim tak goo, but I think lee min jung character is not as wicked as eugene character in Baker King because in Baker King, Tak goo really love her and he never leave her, but she decided to marry ma jun because her revenge against ma jun mom’s who really hate her for being too close to her son. In Midas is different, do hyuk just leave her and decide not to marry her and choice to go abroad with other woman, that will kill someone for sure.. I feel sympatize with jung yung, i hope she will find happiness with noo min woo although her motive was also a revenge at first.. but i think she find noo min woo is hard to resist and she will love him even more than she love jang hyuk..

  52. 52 : KDaddict Says:

    Nurse and lawyer have very different visions of life and want different things in life. Lawyer has latched onto an amazing opportunity to play a high stakes game in life. Nurse girlfriend only wants to marry a regular professional guy. She has no right to ask him to forsake his dream. He has asked her repeatedly to stay by his side. It is her choice not to. No one is at fault.

  53. 53 : sylvia Says:

    I got interested watching it because of Jang Hyuk. The story seems to be different and interesting. However, I can’t seem to feel that the story will focus on romance maybe they will just touch a little on that. I think the romantic angle among the stars will not be really interesting because the lead actors and actress doesn’t seem to have a good chemistry. The actress Lee Min Jung does not have the aura of being a leading lady, she’s just fit for being 2nd lead.

  54. 54 : via Says:

    @Kaddict: KDH once promise to marry JY and then he decide to leave her? although he wants her to be by his side, but she knew and every woman in this world would know that it is only for a reason, if she remain faithfull to be by his side and then he instead to have relationship with other woman in the future, what can you do then? she has the right to hold on to him for the sake of many years they’ve spent together and for the wedding that he promise her before. Call me a naive, a woman can feel there is a threat from other woman, although they seem doesn’t knew it at first, but someday when they realized it, then everything will change and she is the one who has to suffer and decide whether she will continue her love and being miserable or she will move on, forget the pass and find another love she deserve. But you are right KDH and KHA really fit for one another,as for lee min jung, I am just a big fan of her in her drama Smile U, I don’t care if her character become wicked or with the fact that she will be the 2nd lead (sylvia) , i just love and admire her beautiful face.. hehehe

  55. 55 : via Says:

    @Kaddict: forget to add that at first KDH dream was also the same with JY dream, but then change when he become a lawyer and get to know KHA. No wonder JY can’t accept that and I don’t blame her for trying to hold on to him, at least that is all she can do,although she knew it will be useless because he already made up his mind pursuing his new dream and she is not in it or it doesn’t matter anymore fot him if she is not in it.

  56. 56 : KDaddict Says:

    @via:
    Sylvia is right on both counts. This show doesn’t seem to be abt romance per se. And the 2nd actress is not leading lady material.
    Lawyer hasn’t dumped his girlfriend. He is just busy chasing his dream of immense riches. He asked her 2-3 times to be on this ride with him. It is to her credit that she values love over riches. She wants him to give up his dream, which is impossible. He wants her to tag along and ask no questions, which is also impossible.
    Have you seem the movie: Devil’s Advocate (Keanu Reeves)? In it, a lawyer is seduced by fame and fortune, only to discover that he has unwittingly sold his soul to the devil. This is much the same theme, I think. His wife, also a long-time sweetheart, died in the process. So it Really is to the Nurse’s credit that she chooses her own conviction and integrity over tagging along her fiance’s dangerous ride, with or without love rival.

  57. 57 : via Says:

    @Kaddict.. that will be fine if you say that the story wasn’t involved romance that much.. such dissapointment, actually i love romancing story,hehehe.. but that doesn’t mean i will hate the drama, i will still give it a try on the drama.. and we both have different perspective on how we have seen all those character.. as a woman i still think love overcome everything.. KDH should give up his dream if he really loves her.. especially when she doesn’t care about money, title or anything.. she is ok with him now, why he want to get more ?!

  58. 58 : via Says:

    wow.. this drama makes me think too hard.. i don’t think i like the drama that requires me to think a lot, i just enjoy watched dream high recently and i have really really really crazy about dream high.. wonderfull music, wonderfull story, wonderfull cast.. i just love dream high.. and now i watch this drama and hoping that i wont be dissapointed..

  59. 59 : KDaddict Says:

    Hi via:
    If this was primarily a love story, he’d give up everything for her, but story would be over right there. If this is a cautionary tale against too much ambition and greed, then he’s lose her and everything else at the end. He’ll regret it too late. It looks like the latter.
    He is just driven by his past: Father chasing after the dream of striking a goldmine; mother waiting for husband till she died. Poor guy is a victim of his past.
    No need to think too hard abt any KD. Just enjoy it whichever way it develops.

  60. 60 : via Says:

    @Kaddict
    I wish i can be like you, not to over thinking about KD, but sometimes when the KD is really great overall makes me can’t stop thinking about it.. i can even dream about it and sometimes feel dissapointed when things doesn’t happen the way I want to.. LOL.. I am just too much, am I? like in Bad guy why KNG have to die? something like that.. but thanks for your advice anyway..

    He returns with a new and ugly haircut to match his new and not so pleasant job in M&A.
    But Rose looks absolutely de-li-cious.

  63. 63 : via Says:

    wah.. KDH become different person when he came back, he has put down his compassion towards any other person to reach his goal and get what he wants.. i hate KDH character here.. I wish he will realized that he has done wrong..

  64. 64 : KDaddict Says:

    Ah, Kim Do Hyun’s female boss decides to throw him to the wolves when necessary. If that happens and if he finds out, he will turn against her. This show will be so much fun then.

  65. 65 : Bee Says:

    When i read the synopsis , i have zero interest in it even though it’s still the most attractive to me of the new batch of kdramas.

    I watch it with the thought of ‘since i got nothing to watch and surprisingly i like crime squad , maybe i should watch try watching other new dramas too’.
    So i start out with Midas as it’s the first 1 to broadcast of the recent batch of new drama and i like Lee Min Jung due to ‘smile you’.

    I end up watching ll the 7 episodes with all the free time i have.
    Now i’m addicted to this drama.

    I hope Myung Joon ends up with Jung Yun.
    I love the romance(Myung Joon+Jung Yun , i don’t care other couple/combination like Do Hyun+Jung Yun).
    I like the business part too. It’s surprisingly addictive.

    I just wanna kick Kim Do Hyun in the face! I can’t wait to see what happens to him in the end.

  68. 68 : KDaddict Says:

    KimDo Hyun and Yoo In Hye both excel in their cut-throat business. I’d like to see them turn against each other and cut each others’ throats! They’ll then get what’s coming to them. Haha.

    can’t wait for episode 8 tonite..

  73. 73 : calLypSoo Says:

    Thank God that Jang Hyuk and Lee Min Jung got a drama. I am very grateful that they are matched in a drama. They were one of my Favorite actor and actress.

    I`m gonna watch this drama! If it will be availadle in a DVD. I love Jang Hyuk and Lee Min Jung`s team-up and chemistry.

  74. 74 : via Says:

    getting better each episode..

  75. 75 : via Says:

    wah.. Midas is getting more and more interesting.. i can’t wait to see what happen between this brother sister and lawyer and nurse.. brother n nurse, sister and lawyer.. but i love the story between this younger brother n his nurse ( min woo – min jung)

  76. 76 : KDaddict Says:

    I know Jang Hyuk is a big star in Korea. So the fact that he has a crooked mouth really surprises me. He isn’t that handsome and his mouth slants to the L side of the screen.
    I’ve been waiting for his lady-boss to fall for him. She embraced him twice when she thought the bank deal was going thru. But that seems to be nothing more than the thrill of the kill.

  77. 77 : hunnieB Says:

    been following this series because of min woo… such a beautiful man!! :D
    hopefully he will end up with min jung in the series.

  78. 78 : hunnieB Says:

    but i dont think he (min woo) will end up with her (min jung).. so sad :(

  79. 79 : KDaddict Says:

    The nurse will end up loving him, but pretty boy will end up dying, and we’ll all be crying!

  80. 80 : hallyu lover Says:

    I watch this because of No Min Woo..He’s so handsome nowadays..keke..

    Who is the rich old patient in the VIP room all by herself? What impact will she bring to the nurse’s future?

  82. 82 : sylvia Says:

    I am watching it because of Jang Hyuk and No Min Woo. The Plot is quite different from the other korean dramas I\’ve watched so far. As always Jang Hyuk can deliver whatever roles given to him, I just hope that on the remaining episodes the script writer will not give much importance on the love angle between jang hyuk and the nurse who plays the nurse in the story because I can\’t find a bit of chemistry between the two, I think the actress Lee Min Jung is not tailored to play a lead role, I find her to be a boring actress and she\’s not really that charming and lovable. I hope that No Min Woo could be given a chance in the future to have his own drama, he\’s got a great potential and he\’s goodlooking.

  83. 83 : via Says:

    I have watching this drama because of lee min jung, I love her acting in ‘Smile you” with Jung Kyung Hoo, She is very lovable, funny, and cute.. I wish i can see her acting in another drama like ‘Smile U’ because she is not suit for serious drama.. cheer up lee min jung, I will always support you.. aza aza Fighting!!!

  84. 84 : josey Says:

    I always anticipate Jung Yeon and Myung Joon scenes in every episode…

  85. 85 : KDaddict Says:

    FYI For those of you who love Lee Min Ho:
    Do you know that he has a DVD + Photo Book out on the market? It can be ordered on the internet.

  86. 86 : Bee Says:

    lee minho is damn overrated.

  87. 87 : KDaddict Says:

    About #85:
    FYI: Lee Min Ho, Rose, has a 2 DVD set + photo book out on the market.

  88. 88 : KDaddict Says:

    About #85, #86:
    FYI: No Min Ho, Rose, has a 2 DVD set + photo book out on the market.

  89. 89 : KDaddict Says:

    No Min Woo, Rose is the pretty boy with the 2 DVD set + photobook. I Don’t know who Lee Min Ho is. My wires just got crossed! Too much KD is bad for the brain???

  90. 90 : USA-Mary Says:

    I just started watching this drama the other day and so far, I really like it! Now if I can find a website with English subs where I can watch it consistently without receiving messages that its been removed or access denied would be great!

    Its so annoying when the drama is good, and I have to constantly search all over the net to watch different episodes or parts, sometimes in the raw version at that!

  91. 91 : PVL Says:

    Hi USA-Mary – I’m glad to see you in this site again – I miss good interaction with everybody – It’s that I don’t have a chance to do that lately – you could watch Midas with English Subtitle in dramacrazy.net so far it was subbed until episode 8 – and I’m glad the Subbing was done by The Heavens Subbing Squad – again – it is nice to see you here.

  92. 92 : via Says:

    Hi USA Mary, I am glad to see u here, I also love Midas.. The MM Couple (min woo-min jung) is the best! but they can’t be together because min woo will be dead because of his terminal cancer.

  93. 93 : via Says:

    can’t wait for episode 10 tonight.. dying to see noo min woo and lee min jung again..

  94. 94 : USA-Mary Says:

    @KDaddicts-89. No…your wires aren’t crossed up re Lee Min Ho. He does have a DVD out which I’ve seen ads in websites like dramastyle.com, etc. since last year. Hancinema.com mentions that it contains his activities from 2009-2010. So, you are correct about what you saw.

    I like Lee Min Ho. He’s making a good living doing what he loves and is excellent at what he does…acting!

    This is the BEST day today. PVL and via! Two of the best people to get a good dialogue going!

    @PVL. It’s so good to see you on this site, too! Its been a while since our fun/interesting IRIS dialoguing days! I, too, understand about not having the chance to interact as often. But, when I do get the chance, I try to make the most of it in one shot! Well, dramacrazy is a hit or miss at times when it comes to accessing the subs. Sometimes the slowpokii one doesn’t even work for me either.

    @via. Did you see my message in City Hall re yesasia?

    About the M/M couple in this drama. I’m trying not to pair off any couples at this time. Already watched ep. 10 in the raw! It will be a while before the subs on that episode.

  95. 95 : KDaddict Says:

    @Mary:
    See I got it wrong AGAIN! His name is “No” Min “Woo”, not Lee, not Ho. Rose.

    @via: Re your M-M connection:
    In ep.10, when they talked over coffee, what nurse said abt her relationship w/lawyer was real incisive. Min Woo was as impressed with her intelligence as I was, n said: “Why didn’t I meet you earlier? I so regret wasting all that time.” That’s such a deep and sweet confession of love. U must be very happy abt it, right?

    Hey Mary, so good to see you here! It is difficult to get a good dialogue going on this site. Most ppl who makes regular comments are on other sites. Which ep. are you up to on Midas?
    I said my wires were crossed cos I kept typing Lee Min “Ho”, whereas It should be Lee Min “Woo”! I just always call him Rose, his stage name.
    I was wondering what role the old lady in the VIP room would play for the nurse. Now we know.
    I kept waiting for Dragon Lady to fall for the lawyer. Guess that won’t happen.

  96. 96 : KDaddict Says:

    Oh, in case u wonder:
    I do have better n impt things to do, but I prefer doing this. : )

    For those who are as confused as I am:
    There is only 1 No Min Woo.
    No Min Woo is the pretty boy who appears in Midas. His stage name was Rose when he was the drummer for TRAX. I always just referred to him as Rose.

    There are 2 Lee Min Woo’s:
    1. is an ahjussi who is appearing in Crime Squad as a ciminal currently.
    2. is a member of the boyband, Shinhwa.

    There are also 2 Lee Min Ho’s:
    1. is of course the pretty boy who appeared in Boys over Flowers as the leader of F4 in the series. He also appeared in a more recent drama as an architect.
    2. is a teenager of 18 who is much less known.

    Hope that clears up the confusion.

  97. 97 : via Says:

    @Kaddict.. you are right.. I am jumping on my bed for the excitement.. haha… I am so happy.. :-)

    Hi… @ USA Mary.. yes I have seen your messages.. don’t worry I have already make an order for Nagareboshi DVD from the seller, they told me Japanese drama isn’t very good in sales, right now everyone in my country everyone are looking for korean drama. So it willl be a while for the Nagareboshi DVD to be released here, i have to be patient,hehehe…
    Right now I am just watching another korean drama or Taiwan drama, recently I have just watch Taiwan Drama “Sunny Happiness” with Mike he and Janine Chang Staring, its such a great drama, almost beat my other favourite Taiwan Drama “Fated to love you” with Ethan Ruan and Joe Cheng. Do you like Taiwan Drama?
    I hope Midas will not dissapoint me, I mean how many people would die because of the dying disease such a cancer, but i noticed that sometimes miracle happen, I hate when people have to die in a drama, like Staiway to heaven, sorry I love u, but the love story is really beautiful and makes me cry bucket of tears and feeling depress all day after watching that sad, heartbreaking and tearjerking drama.. but i think Midas isn’t that kind of drama.. so i do hope miracle will happen, min woo will stay alive and live happily ever after with min jung..

  98. 98 : USA-Mary Says:

    @KDaddicts. My thoughts about how often you comment on here is this… HAVE AT IT! Do whatever makes you happy and content. It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks about it anyway! I, too, am busy. Yet, I’m just thankful for a forum where I can communicate with like-minded people to discuss the dramas we like or don’t like. I welcome the dialogue.

    @KDaddicts-96. I’m on ep. 6 (sub wise); ep. 10 (raw). Its still a toss up when it comes to getting the subbing host to work dramacrazy’s site.

    I really like the new older lady patient in the VVIP ward who has taken to nurse Jung Yeon. I’ve watched her character acting parts for a few years now and have always enjoyed her antics! Though I haven’t seen the subs in the episodes she’s in, I’ve yet to know what vital part she’s going to play in both Tae Sung and Jung Yeon’s lives.

    @KDaddicts. You’re so funny!

  99. 99 : via Says:

    Whats going on here? KDH goes to jail? why In hye doesn’t help him? wah he must have been aware and realized now, she just want to use him.. Midas is getting interesting.. i hope KDH realized what he had left off and try to get it back, his pride and his love who has been defeated over power and money

  100. 100 : KDaddict Says:

    Things come to a head in ep.11. This is a turning point for KimDoHyun n for the show. He realizes that Dragon Lady has set him up to take the fall, he should thus understand what Nurse has been telling him all along. I can find no preview for ep.12.

  101. 101 : KDaddict Says:

    @Mary–98: Commenting often is no problem. I thought it was a bit obsessive to care so much what Rose’s name is, why so many people got it confused, that I take the time to sort it out. hee.
    The old lady VVIP patient–that actress appeared as a fairy godmother in My girlfriend is a 9-tailed Fox. I liked that role for her a lot. She is currently appearing in Shining (Twinkle Twinkle) as the mother of Actor#1. Shining is very good. I strongly recommend it.
    We have this bonanza of good shows lately. Gisaeng>Shining>Midas>49Days. There weren’t many good shows in 2010, maybe abt 6 for whole year.

  102. 102 : USA-Mary Says:

    Well, I have some catching up to do on subbed episodes now!

    @KDaddicts-101. In my humble opinion…sorting it out on here is fine…remaining confused is not! hehehe

    I totally agree about 2010 shows. They definitely didn’t have very many worth watching that I enjoyed.

    @via-97. Yes, I like Taiwanese dramas immensely! I also like Thailand-lakorn, Japanese-jdorama, some Bollywood, Hong Kong, and some Mainland ones. The variations in the plots and not having to see the same actors faces over and over again is what I like about them; its like watching a movie! Of course, the acting has to be really good, above all! Even though the acting may be good here in the U.S (Hollywood), they drag on and on for years with the same people! ~yawn~ Never liked the dramas or ‘soap operas’ over here…never!

    @via-97. Good…I’m so glad you got to order Nagareboshi! Its truly an excellent drama. Sunny Happiness is sooooooooo gooood! I give it a 5 minute standing ovation of…BRAVO! Fated To Love You is also one of my favorite Taiwanese drama’s to watch! The storyline and acting in both is excellent with a bit of humor thrown in.

    Girl…don’t mention tearjerkers to me! I’ve seen enough of them in Asian dramas on the internet to last me a life time and that’s no joke! ~smile~ The first one I watched was the kdrama, Snow Queen with Hyun Bin. I refuse to watch it again! After that, Fated To Love You with the car accident and hospital scene. I purposefully try to stay clear of dramas like that! For some reason, some synopsis writers are really good about preparing the viewers for sadness. Then there are the writers who generalize the plot, making it seem like a normal drama, and they don’t warn you about the little things like ‘be prepared to cry until your eyes are swollen’ in a few scenes before watching it. With Midas, I’m too much into the financial part of this drama and not really into Myung Joon like that.

  103. 103 : via Says:

    @Kaddict: I think you are right, the dragon lady really a b*** , sorry for the word, but she really is evil, so KDH and YIH didnt have a romance relationship, do you think there will be any romance relationship between them in the future?
    The Old lady will give the nurse her inheritance because she genuinely taking care of her and she feel sad for what happen with the nurse, makes the nurse becoming very rich lady soon..

  104. 104 : KDaddict Says:

    @via: I love your idea that Lady Bank President leaves Nurse an inheritance. I hate to say this, but Pretty Boy will do so most likely. Then KimDH will run around in circles and finally ends up finding Nurse a rich lady. That’d teach him!
    @via n USA-Mary:
    I don’t like tear jerkers; I’m tired of them n really like comedies now, but don’t mind a moving segment in a show. I’ve Never watched a Taiwanese or Thai drama. What do you esp. recommend? Not that I need to get more crossed eye than I am now.
    Please watch Shining (Twinkle Twinkle), then we can chat there too. hehe.

  105. 105 : via Says:

    @USA Mary: wah you just like me.. but i only like korean drama, Japanese drama n Taiwan Drama, I don’t like bollywood drama but hollywood drama is good too, such as: friends, desperate housewife, sex n the city. But after that I feel no great drama from hollywood lately (maybe glee n vampire diaries is ok) so i decide to watching korean drama, since it always continue, after one show is over then continue to the next interesting show.
    But I must admit, sometimes a heartbreaking and tearjerking drama is needed in everybody lifes,LOL.. so we will know that sometimes we can not escape from death. Sometimes there are no miracle in this life, that life is not always fair and square. Although it made me upset n gone crazy almost a week to forget about that scene. So I try to avoid those kind of story as much as i could,hehehe… Snow queen is sad too. I keep thinking after she’s (Sung Yu ri) gone, how he (hyun bin) can live his life. He still thinking about her although she died, still imagine talking to her, still imagine seeing her, still have feeling for her (like he want to kiss and hug her).. thats hard to even think about it. I mean his friend death (yu ri brothers) is already devastated him, and now yu ri’s own death??
    Well.. I know so many option for korean drama lately, I prefer to watch Midas n 49days n the duo, I think Smile Dong hae is good too, but I wont watch it now, its still a long way to go, more than 100 episode, so i will watch till its end and DVD was released.

  106. 106 : KDaddict Says:

    @via:
    Romance between KDH & YIH? I’ve been waiting for it too. It’s Not possible anymore. She lands him in jail. He is going to come back to seek revenge.
    Isn’t that woman truly sick? The night before, she laid there in the reclining chair alluringly, saying: I have been hoping you’d cure me of my incurable disease (i.e. inability to believe in love). Next morning, she flies off leaving him to face prosecution! He deserves that, doesn’t he?
    The Nurse is looking better to me episode by episode.

  107. 107 : via Says:

    @Kaddict & USA Mary,
    Here is a list Korean Drama in 2010 that I have watch and feel its a great drama:
    1. Prosecutor Princes
    2. Sungkyukwan Scandal
    3. Playfull Kiss
    4. Secret Garden
    5. Baker King
    6. A man called God
    7. Obstectric & Gyn
    8. Pasta
    And this is all the drama in 2010 I have watch but find it just not bad in rate: Marry me, Mary, Cinderela Sister, Oh My lady, Pick the Stars, master of study,Chuno, The woman who wants to Marry, The Birth of a rich,Personal Taste, Bad Guy (love it but KNG die, so decide to hate it!), Secret Agent Miss Oh,I am a legend, My GF is Gumiho, Daemul, the Fugitive Plan B, Dr. Champ, Its Ok Daddy’s girl,Athena.

  108. 108 : USA-Mary Says:

    @KDaddicts-106. I don’t believe that Do Hyun deserves the flack and injustice he’s going to face…imprisonment (I haven’t seen the subs on why this happened). I’m not trying to cover up any scrupulous dealings by no means. But, other old money chaebols like the Yoo family have done more dirty, unhanded things than he has and for a longer period of time, but got away with it. Do Hyun’s youthful brilliance was a pawn to them (that was mentioned in the beginning). Yet, who can blame his desire to live a better life. He was sought out and scouted by the best law firms. He was hungry…no starving to have a better life for himself and Jung Yeon, but got caught up in the chaebol’s trappings, unbeknownest to him! He trusted that they would have his back (while doing what they told him to do) like he had theirs! I sense that his father (somehow) and Jung Yeon will help him. I’m hoping when he comes out of prison (depending upon the white collar crime charges against him and whether he’ll be able to continue to practice law or not), he may get into another line of business and become a force to be reckoned with! To me, he’s really a good man in heart who’s still in love with Jung Yeon.

    I’m glad Do Hyun didn’t have a romance with In Hye! He’s a real man, but not a stupid one. In my opinion, he knew news of an affair with IH would quickly get back to Jung Yeon. IH would have seen to that, plus I could tell he wasn’t attracted to IH like that. He was attracted to her mind, her accumen to succeed as a woman in a man’s world! That fascinated him!

  109. 109 : intyce Says:

    Aww…I’m starting to feel sorry for KDH! But that’s what he gets for being a greedy @$$!! LOL! Hopefully he’ll be able to seek revenge on YIH! ^^ I’m sure LJY would love to see that! LOL I want LJY and YMJ to end up together in the end but that probably won’t happen. K-Dramas never fail to disappoint in the end. =(

  110. 110 : KDaddict Says:

    I know Kim Do Hyun is money-crazy. But he is willing to work very hard for it. At least he hasn’t tried to marry his way into money, by seducing Yoo In Hye. Why does that make him the guy to hate?
    The lady bank president understands that he is to be pitied rather than hated. Even the Nurse has forgiven him for choosing money over her. By the same token, she has chosen a safe and mediocre life over him. Different life choices. I know you hate him for leaving the Nurse, but that makes him stupid and pathetic, not sleazy.

  111. 111 : via Says:

    @Kaddict: you are right, he’s just a pathetic man, we should feel sorry for KDH. What you plant is what you get, so i think it will be a turning point for him, where he will be open his eyes and try to see the world from different perspective which is love and pride, unlike he has seen before which is money,money and money. The nurse has a kind heart, so she will forgive him and maybe will try to help him. But still … I wish no min woo won’t die… don’t leave me, you pretty boy.. LOL..

  112. 112 : USA-Mary Says:

    @via-111. A great point that’s made. What you plant is what you get shouldn’t only apply to KDH, but to all chaebol individuals/families in their evil deeds/dealings, as well! But, we don’t see that do we?

    @KDaddicts-110. Also, a great point. KDH is not so money-crazed that he sought to marry any wealthy young/older woman to advance his career and status. It was all done on his own hard work and merit. Nor did he opt for the VIP suite in the hospital after his accident occurred on his wedding day. He refused that option and requested a regular room. In my opinion, I thought that accident to be very suspicious. Whoever is behind it knew that if he married JY, he would confide in her. That’s why it was advantageous to keep him single at all cost! This young man, who came from a very poor background, turned out to be a financial genius. The only revenge I hope he seeks is not against people, but to take his genuis, turn the chaebol system that set him up, upside-down by becoming mega rich and going on with his life with JY, her dad, his dad and half-brother! Hopefully, move to another country. Plus, I know his half-brother is tired of getting beat up!

  113. 113 : KDaddict Says:

    @Mary:
    You and I are of like mind. 2-3 times now, I typed my comment while yours was being moderated, making the same point.
    Your make me laugh. Do Hyun and his loved ones migrate! lol. His half-brother is tired of being beaten, you reckon?
    DoHyun has been convicted n jailed. Would that mean he has to be debarred? Hard to topple the whole chaebol system, but he can come back with a sting operation to In Hye and her family a lesson?

  114. 114 : USA-Mary Says:

    @KDaddicts-113. Thank you…I like to point out humor wherever I can find it. Yes, they should migrate after they make their millions. They would fair much better elsewhere. He can go anywhere and make his money work for him with his business saavy. In my opinion, KDH is a sweetie! The chaebols (the law firm man and IH) had an intent to maliciously use him from the beginning. His genuis is an enemy to them; the law firm man that hired him said so. They waved platinum carrots before him with offers he couldn’t refuse. They kept pushing the creature comforts of prosperity and living well constantly to him while telling him to help them achieve this or that and he’ll be secure like them. Now he knows its not wise to work with chaebol families who are against each other (like the Yoo’s older brother and IH) in this case without having his own safety net of checks and balances in place.

    I like KDH because the entire time he was being prodded and pushed towards prosperity, he told JY he wanted her with him as his wife. He doesn’t want anyone else. We’ll see what happens!

  115. 115 : USA-Mary Says:

    Okay…I’ll tell you all who’s the sleaze-ball in the beginning of this drama! The so called hottie and cutie to just about everyone on here except me, Myung Joon, IH’s little brother! The one who doesn’t work! Has orgy’s and leaves the remnants of naked women sprawled out on the floor, all over his apartment, and then gets caught doing one in the VIP hospital room where nurse LY walked in on them and wished she hadn’t!!! She even knocked before entering, and he didn’t even bother to tell her not to come in! He’s not a bad guy, he’s not money crazed, no he’s not! WHY…because he’s filthy, stinking rich and doesn’t have to worry about ever having to live from paycheck to paycheck! He’s the outcome of a 2nd wife relationship with inheritance rights! He only makes the family financial meetings because he’s made to go to them. He’s just a typical, spoiled chaebol brat who has women accommodate him like non-reusable chopsticks (unwrap, rub to separate, use, throw away)! Might as well take it to the hospital roof or in the middle of a busy street since it appears he’s been just about everywhere else! The only thing that put a stop to his shenanigans was the severity of his sickness…that’s what slowed him down and made him more focused! Now and only now is he acting like he has some sense of responsibility!

  116. 116 : via Says:

    K-addict: Wow.. that is too much about MJ character isn’t ? He is definetely like what you have said, but there is some reason for his behaviour, I think he is lonely, no one would understand him, not even his sister, he is not happy with his life, sure he can have money, or maybe everything that he wants in this life but he knew he can never buy happiness or love from a girl, I think he has been used by all women around him not the other way around, because he is rich many women would love to have relationship with him but they only seing him as their money object.. being with the nurse makes him happy, and he feel that she is different from all the women that he’s been with. So he start to have a feeling for her and maybe hoping that she will give him happiness or swipe away the loneliness that he had felt almost in his entire life.
    @USA Mary: About the KDH character, you have said that he is actually a genius man, I agree with that, but he isn’t that genius when it comes to a relationship with people and he can’t read whats coming to him. I think basicly KDH character is a good man too, he just being blind with all the sweet talk from the chaebol family. I wish he will understand what is going on here and realized that he has been use by them and then he will decide to use his genius brain to get revenge to the chaebol family, teach them a lesson they would never forget in their life.

  117. 117 : via Says:

    OOOpppsss… sorry.. I think its USA MAry who said the character of MJ, not Kaddict.. sorry guys… :-)

  118. 118 : USA-Mary Says:

    @via-116/117. Re KDH…he’ll have plenty of time to reflect on ‘people’ and how they used him during his time in prison (which is what he’s doing)! Like the old saying…we live and learn…and he’s a fast learner! From what I gather by the writer, in comparison to KDH’s university studies on finance…its a whole lot easier for him to decipher the instability of the stock market than the uncertainty of people minds (which is an ongoing mystery)! Yet, I knew prison life wasn’t going to be smooth sailing for him either. He’s already having a similar challenge behind the prison walls with ahjusshi king pin just like with the chaebol folks! Well, where ever KDH goes, people will always have his 411 file ahead of time on his gift of profiting with money. Re Revenge. Its a horrible, vicious cycle that can only be broken or ended with good. Good trumps evil all the time! I’m going to watch and see how the writer handles the laws of reciprocity with everyone involved.

    Yes…it was me that said that about MJ! He’s truly a product of his chaebol (skirt chasing, womanizing daddy’s) environment and all the superficiality that encompasses it! Like I pointed out, he’s a sleaze in the ‘beginning’ of this drama. Its obvious that he’s not happy with his life because of his behavior, and his fast living took a toll on his health which made him have to change. He’s no fool when it comes to women. Men know what type of women to select to play with and they were definitely using each other. Apparently, MJ didn’t have any plans on being committed to one woman until nurse Jung Yeon came on the scene. She’s good for his morale because he lacked stability in his life. Now, he’s getting things in order according to the time he has left to live. Also, he stated that he’s going to help JY take revenge on his sister IH for how she used KDH. Since the subs aren’t out on ep. 9, its going to be very interesting on how everything unfolds. I wonder if he wants to marry JY by giving her his fortune in order ease his departure when it comes, then she can later help KDH down the road? Well, stranger things have happened in some of these kdramas! I’ll just stay tuned to find out what happens when the subs come out!

  119. 119 : via Says:

    @USA Mary,I think you made your point here, love your point of view… and you are right, i think it will be very interesting to know what happen next, because the story seems very unpredictable, i have no clue what is going to happen or how thing will get going, in this drama. It really does bringing up my curiousity.
    One more thing, I think this drama needs more episodes, because i don’t want the writer wrap up the story in hurriedly by making the story kind of hanging (I hate when it happen in a drama), I love when every character in a drama will have a closure, whether it will be good or bad.

  120. 120 : KDaddict Says:

    Kim Do Hyun doesn’t even have to get out of prison to seek revenge. In Hye wouldn’t even know what hit her. She wouldn’t suspect KDH cos he is in jail. Good for him!

  121. 121 : KDaddict Says:

    I love Jang Hyuk’s smile at the very end of ep. 12, ever so faint. I’ve seen him b4 n didn’t like him at the beginning of this KD, but I am very much impressed with his acting as it progresses. Notice that every epi. ends with a closeup of his face in some subtle but definite expression. He has also lost some weight in the course of filming. That makes him more lean n handsome.
    They originally wanted to cast him as Kim Joo Won in Secret Garden. Now that we’ve all fallen in love with Hyun Bin’s Kim JW, we can’t imagine Jang Hyuk in that role. Good thing he turned it down, and chose Midas instead. I think this suits him more.

  122. 122 : USA-Mary Says:

    I like Jang Hyuk’s smile, too! Whether its a subtle hint of one or one of total bliss. He has a manly, man’s sexiness about him for sure! The earlier episodes are so pensive, he can’t help but wear the face that accompanies the mood in those scenes. Still…I like his looks!

    What I don’t like are some of the knots in the ties he’s wearing with some of his nicely tailored, vested suits! I know, I know…different tastes and styles! But. some of the knots are soooo huge, its like they’re going to overtake the shirt and them! LOL! Is that synonymas with his behavior during those takeover scenes are something? Whether it is or not…come on now head of wardrobe person!!! I know you all can do better than that! Compared to the way they dressed KDH, I’ve seen some older men of shorter stature, dressed so well in their high-end, clean-lined tailored cut suits, silk shirts, etc. in some dramas that they even caught my attention and I like tall men! hehehe So, do better with KDH when he gets out of prison okay! ~smile~

    Re MJ. Don’t get me wrong, I like his character, too! His portrayal, like everyone else’s plays an integral part and serves a purpose in this drama. His character in the beginning is so risque’. Yet, behind all that, he has a good heart and is a really good man for wanting to help JY in terms of his sister. But, before I speak too soon…I still don’t know what offer he made JY since the subs aren’t out, yet!

  123. 123 : via Says:

    I just wish KDH won’t change his mind to take revenge on YIH, the evil woman. Because KDH cry his tears for her, I wonder what he had been thinking when she meet him. I mean I can see KDH love in his eyes for YIH and he seems can’t believe that she had been using him all along. I hope he will wake up now and just stick on what he’s plan now, which is take revenge on evil woman YIH.

    Kaddict: I personally think that Hyun bin is looks younger than ha ji won, they didnt match each other on my opinion, but rather than change hyun bin as ko jo won, I prefer change ha ji won for the leading lady role, as much as i love secret garden story but i am not sure with the cast especially the leading lady ‘ha ji won’ I don’t really like her, she is much looking older than hyun bin, she supposed to be younger character than hyun bin (I know her character should be younger because when KJW get his father killed, he’s already in college and she still in highschool; I remember at the funeral she still wearing her uniform and he is already in University) When Oska changes her on the Christmast party when she meet KJW, she didn’t look so stunning for me, I mean.. she supposed to surprise me with her new looks (thanks to Oska) but she just look much more older, she looks like KJW’s mom, or his sister or his auntie, I am really sorry for bringing down HJW. But that is all how I feel. If its not because of the amazing story and the acting of hyun bin, i would never finished Secret Garden. And now that I have known the story, I would never watching SG anymore..

    Kaddict: sorry.. i mean when KJW get her father killed( not his father killed..)

  124. 124 : USA-Mary Says:

    WOW! Only 3 more episodes to go! That went by fast!

  125. 125 : KDaddict Says:

    @via, hi:
    I was only talking abt Jang Hyuk, Hyun Bin and Kim Joo Won. Jang Hyuk could have become Kim Joo Won but turned it down to appear in Midas. He is very good as Kim Do Hyun. Whereas Hyun Bin was very very good as KJW. The audience wins in both cases.
    Unlike Kim Tae Hee, Ha Ji Won may not be everyone’s idea of a beauty. I didn’t like her in Love in Bali, but think that she fits the role of a smart and athletic stunt woman very well. It is hard physical work. Few Korean actresses can pull it off. Joo Won loves her cos she is not all make-up and pearls.

  126. 126 : KDaddict Says:

    Kim Do Hyun’s scheme to ruin In Hye’s family (ep.13) reminds me of an old movie: The Sting, a la Robert Redford and Paul Newman. Boy, that was satisfying! I think this sting will be too!

  127. 127 : via Says:

    *Kaddict: It was just my opinion about SG, although HJW seems to be fit as a stuntwoman, but not as HB match, because she look older than him. I mean there is another actress who can be fit for the role also, I think sung yu ri in snow queen was great for the role, I have seen her in 100 years of love, and she can act very well as a princess with a great skills of kungfu, or maybe Kim sun ah, she’s good in the movies ” She’s on duty”, or Kim tae hae, or Kim so yoen, I can think other actress who can play Gil ra im character other than HJW, but now it doesn’t matter. Just feel too bad for SG, but its only my opinion and Im sure other will think maybe the same with me or maybe they don’t think the same like me, that will be fine.
    I hope the last 3 episode of Midas will be very exciting, although i haven’t watch The sting by robert redford, but im sure it is a very interesting story. Midas will be the same too..

  128. 128 : USA-Mary Says:

    Ha Ji Won is one of my favorite actresses! Even though she hadn’t acted in dramas for a while prior to Secret Garden, I knew it was her because of her eyes! She and Hyun Bin, together as the perfect (acting) pair, made Secret Garden a total success! After his stint in the Korean marines, I hope they’re paired up again in more dramas. They have excellent chemistry!

  129. 129 : KDaddict Says:

    There has been a trend in KD that the actresses are older than the actor, or female leads are older than the male lead. Think First Wives Club, Royal Family, Please Marry Me, etc. It gives the predominantly female audience reason to dream, that they do might land a rich hunk, younger than themselves.
    Like we said b4, Kim Joo Won’s role (age 34) was meant for Jang Hyuk, who looks 34. When Hyun Bin gets that role, they empahsized in the drama that he is baby-faced n looks younger than his age.
    Most Korean actresses are doll-like pretty. Ha Ji Won is a breath of fresh air in that world with a narrow definition of beauty. Her presence undoubtedly has contributed to making Secret Garden the success that it is.

  130. 130 : USA-Mary Says:

    @PVL. Are you still on here? If so, what other kdramas are you watching?

  131. 131 : USA-Mary Says:

    KDH’s out of prison. Now he’s dressing in a way which suits him best! Very nice, KDH, and suave! Ties with the windsor and small-knots style have clean-lines which make him appear more dapper, attractive and don’t overpower his neck area.

  132. 132 : Charlie Says:

    I love the show and where it is heading to. The material is also fresh.
    Jang Jyuk is still so attractive and actiing so well.

  133. 133 : via Says:

    KDH/JH definitely looking very hot here, he’s so sexy with the way his facial expression full of revenge but at the same time feel sad. I can see his pain, why they did it to him,he didn’t deserve this after all he’s been doing for that chaebol family. KDH might think that he already sacrifice his love and his life and this is what he gets?! wah its only 3 episode to go now…feel can’t get enough of JH,LMJ and NMW, they are my favourite in Midas, I watch Midas only for 3 of them..

  134. 134 : KDaddict Says:

    Jank Hyuk, the King of subtle expressions, go, go , go!
    I’ll to go back and watch his old KDs, like Tarza. Less sure abt Chuno, cos it is historical, n he is in tatters.
    For all the KDs I watch, I can’t remember All their names–those of the stars PLUS characters, much less their initials! ; 0

  135. 135 : via Says:

    I love JH in Thank You.. I think he is so adorable and manly as well.. he has this perfect chemistry with the leading lady “Gong hyo jin” who will starring in upcoming Kdrama with “Cha seung won” my fav actor too in City Hall.. wah so many korean drama I have been waiting for years 2011, replacing Midas, we can watch Yoon Eun Hye and Kang Ji Hwan in New KD with the tittle “Lie To me” .. soo looking forward to see this drama, I am so happy to see YEH again after her last drama My fair Lady, not sure about KJH, but I hope they will be great as a couple in this drama.

  136. 136 : Charlie Says:

    Jang Hyuk’s “Thank you” is also very good. I just finished watching it, it was very moving. Although it might not fit for everyone’s taste, but I enjoyed it. Hyuk was very sexy as always in that drama. I liked his Chuno as well, need to catch up his other products. He’s one of my favorite Korean Actors.

  137. 137 : Charlie Says:

    I agree HGW is not best match for Hyun Bin. But who would be? He’s just too strong for anyone to match. Even SHG couldn’t match with him either.

  138. 138 : joseyusa Says:

    Is really this drama only have 3 episodes left? I want to see romances MJ and JM… I didn’t see a lot of scenes for they both together.

  139. 139 : via Says:

    * Soooo.. haaaappppyyyyyy….I have read the news from Hancinema, that Midas will have more episode, it will become 20 episode, I am so exciting, they are finally add more episode for Midas, I can see more of Jang Hyuk and No min woo and Lee min jung.. yeessss!!!
    The moderator should fix the information regarding the episode in Midas which become 20 episode rather than 16 episode.

  140. 140 : KDaddict Says:

    Even tho Kim Do Hyun was misguided, I do like him for his intelligence. Hopefully, he has learnt his lesson and can live with proper priorities from now on.
    Looks like Yo In Hye’s family has grown rich as money launderers. They should be exposed as the crooks that they are.
    @via: Thanks for the good news. With more eps., themes can be developed more fully.

  141. 141 : PVL Says:

    Hi there USA-Mary – Yes I’m following this Drama but I’m sorry I didn’t get a chance to interact on the thread here or any of the other Dramas lately – You know how it is when you’re a working mom and all – I’m watching Thorn Birds as well – the rest of the Drama that are airing right now I’m going to wait until it’s finished and then watch it one time – only the ones I’m excited about that I faithfully watch every week. Let me know which drama you want to watch so that we could have a good interaction again. Well I like No Min Woo and Lee Min Jung end up together they are more suited with each other, the character of Jang Hyuk seems arrogant at my liking, and I’m glad that there going to be 20 episode now.

  142. 142 : KDaddict Says:

    Pretty Boy doesn’t look as sick in ep.14. Hope he’ll recover n find his true love. Right now, that love looks one-sided.
    I love it that KimDoHyun is taking down the Yoo siblings one by one: 1st the incompetent eldest son; then the nasty 2nd son; Next, it’ll be In Hye’s turn. She is just too cruel for her own good.

  143. 143 : via Says:

    Wah.. Midas is getting intense and interesting, When KDH and JY Kiss, I feel like.. can’t describe my feeling. At first time I feel JY was better with MJ because KDH was a jackass, but now that he come to his senses, I feel like its good if they got back together and fight the evil In Hye together, since MJ will die of cancer anyway. All I can see that JY is still in love with KDH.

  144. 144 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep. 15 brings those two lovers back together, after Kim Do Hyun’s detour into the money world.
    Pretty Boy is so depressed he goes drinking alone. That must be bad for his cancer: Being depressed and the alcohol intake. Poor thing!

  145. 145 : via Says:

    I know it must be hurt for MJ, since its the first time he ever love a woman, he surely feel deepress.. Feel sorry for him, i hope JY will give him a beautifull moment before he die because of cancer, and KDH will understand that.

  147. 147 : via Says:

    Thank you moderator,you already update the episode. It will be 5 more episode to go now.. can’t wait to see what happen to KDH and JY, MJ and JY, KDH and YIH.

  148. 148 : KDaddict Says:

    Jang Hyuk, the actor, has 2 very cute small boys, 3 & 1 year old. He married his pilates instructor. Should we learn Korean & pilates and move to Seoul?
    In ep.15, it looks like Pretty Boy has lost some weight compared to early eps. & My girlfriend is a 9-tailed fox. Now he has a lean and skinny face.

  149. 149 : via Says:

    But still Jang Hyuk is looking hot though.. LOL
    No min woo was losing his weight on purpose, because he had to be convincing for someone who badly sick, so he loosen his weight. I know I have read somewhere about the news. He is very dedicated for his role as the sick person, I think thats very nice because i think all the actor have to do that for whatever the roles they get. I can see his acting improve from pasta, my gf is gumiho, rock rock rock, and now Midas.

  150. 150 : via Says:

    Wah.. I just read from someone blog that Kim Hee Ae Father in law is just passed away, and it makes her wont be able to shoot her part because she have to attend the funeral and because whole family is still in grieve, I am not sure what is gonna happen with this drama.
    I also want to express my condolensce for Kim Hee Ae and her family.

  151. 151 : KDaddict Says:

    In Hye shouldn’t have abandoned Kim Do Hyun and made an enemy out of him. Isn’t it better to have him as friend rather than foe? He is such a formidable foe. Could have found another fall guy. Wrong strategic move on her part. But then there’d be no drama.
    Old man finally reveals the existence of hugh secret fund n offers it to In Hye. It becomes exposed putting In Chun Group in jeopardy. This’d end with In Hye being destroyed n her family ruined. Only then can her disease be cured.

  152. 152 : via Says:

    poor MJ.. he finally let JY go to be with KDH.. his heart must be very crash inside.. I can’t help to cry too when he cry for JY..

  153. 153 : via Says:

    Wow.. Midas beats the Duo in rating for the first time.. I think the viewers realize it now that Midas is worth to watch, since the storyline is different, and Jang Hyuk is such a marvelous actor and love to see him getting revenge on In Hye and her entire family after being tosed around.

  154. 154 : intyce Says:

    I think the actor who plays Attorney Choi is going to be in Lee Minho’s new series, City Hunter, next month…. ^_^

  155. 155 : HH Says:

    Actually ,I like No Min Woo.That’s why I watch this movie .However, after watching 3 episodes I think the story is really interesting .So I decided to watch it till the end and I recommend my friends to watch this drama

  156. 156 : KDaddict Says:

    Attorney Choi, personal attorney to Yoo family for 30 years? He also played the girl’s father in Paradise Ranch.

  157. 157 : KDaddict Says:

    I love Yoo In Hye’s jewelry, every piece of it!

    Why is the script writer so mean to Pretty Boy? When Nurse and KDH talk sweetly, why does he have to watch from his car teary eyed? Why can’t he be allowed a nice lunch with Nurse?

    Jang Hyuk is good-looking, masculine and all, but his lips seem to be in a pout most of the time?

  158. 158 : KDaddict Says:

    Yoo In Hye looks older in ep 18 than in previous eps.

  159. 159 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 19:
    Pretty Boy to Nurse: If you manage these 2 funds, then maybe you’ll think of me once in a while.
    That’s so heart-breaking.
    Pretty Boy: The 1st Sunday in May is my BD. It may be my last. Really want to invite you. Will you come?
    He has long known that his time is ltd, so I don’t think he really wants a serious courtship or marriage w/her, cos it’ll hurt her too much. However, in this drama, both of them have very ltd roles to play. Pretty Boy just shows his face occasionally, while waiting to die; Nurse is waiting patiently in the background for KDH to come back to her. Wouldn’t it have been nice if they were allowed to have a relationship in the meantime?

    Hi Via,

    Thanks for inform us.

    For your information, there are two major Media Reseach in South Korea, Which is TNS TV Audience Research & AGB Nielsen Media Research.

    And the largest one is TNS, therefore we follow the ratings from TNS. That’s why we indicate ‘Source’ under the ratings.

    You may have a look for their website here:-

    http://www.agbnielsen.com/

  164. 164 : via Says:

    Dear Admin,

    So.. the rating from TNS said that Midas ratings is below The Duo, But according to AGB Nielsen Midas is above The Duo in rating, simply because the TNS have analyse the bigger viewer than AGB Nielsen, is that right? If that so, I understand now..

    Thanks for explain this to me..

    I love this site by the way..

    Thanks Admin..

  165. 165 : KDaddict Says:

    Attorney Choi reveals to the world that In Chun Group has a large secret fund. Then In Chun Group goes under, its old man goes under, Yoo IN Hye goes under. End of show. That’s not satisfying! That is Attorney Choi bringing down The Yoo family. That is not Kim Do Hyun’s doing. Attorney Choi could have down that all by himself, revealed the existence of the secret fund at any time of his choice.
    The show wasn’t bad. The material concerning the financial sector is new and interesting, but the relationships are way too shallow, and the ending does not correspond to the build up to it. I am glad it is over, and we can proceed to the next drama, Lie to Me.

  166. 166 : KDaddict Says:

    It is a surprise that there is an ep 21! That final ep provides better closure n brings the show to a more satisfying ending:
    James is dead, killed by his own mafia boss. KDH knows the danger of money n is reformed. So is Yoo In Hye. They can start from the beginning. Too bad pretty boy is dead. It’d be nice if they let him live.

  167. 167 : via Says:

    @Kaddict, I knew there will episode 21 in Midas, and you are right that the story seem lack of romance scene. I hope there will be more scene between KDH and JY where they can live happily ever after. Well I am also glad this drama is over, i look forward to another romantic comedy drama: Lie To me and The Greatest love..
