    No need to thank me, I’m never wrong. LOL

  39. 39 : Jerome Heng Says:

    Kang Ji Hwan shows us different crying skills in Episode 16 & 17, he’s really good!

  40. 40 : Rose Says:

    I noticed in the previews of most of the shows, what they show in the preview for the next episode, the scenes are never in the episode. They must cut some of the scenes out while airing the shows. It is strange.

  41. 41 : Jin Says:

    This Drama is so beautiful I always cry while watching <3 I dont like long dramas but because i know the cast im very sure they will do amazing job and they are all of them with no exceptions even the support cast are doing very well im so proud of everyone and defintelly looking forward this is one of my fave another Jinyuri drama <3

  42. 42 : Jessie Says:

    If they turn down the script,That is a good thing because it all came together,it was made for them I really enjoy the actor’s & actress’s who r playing there parts I love it by the pounds.

  43. 43 : kemisola Says:

    please is the final episode out?

  44. 44 : Cheo Says:

    Super like the 2 original soundtracks.
    Kang Ji Hwan fighting 😍

  45. 45 : Jongkie Says:

    I give up to this drama (on episode 26th). I like the actor, but It’s too long and I get bored with the repetition in the storyline.

  46. 46 : shineNlight Says:

    Why the lead actors must be the lead actors in hong gil dong?? I hope the’re twist at the end..something unpredictable and realistic yet interesting.. i dont like a “given” ending..

  47. 47 : Tray Noo Says:

    Actor runs like a ponce, though he’s better suited than Seo Kang Joon who is yet to get a hit of testosterone from where ever inside his frail body. I’m watching because I like Sung Yoo Ri and all that melancholy she has about her, makes me wanna hold her and beat off the wolves. lol!

  48. 48 : Brix Lee Says:

    Nice Lee Yeol Eum. Hope to see her. 😭

  49. 49 : Anush Says:

    Wow, It’s GREAT that Hwang Jung Eum declined the offer of the leading role. I am hating her as an actress. I think she can only shout loudly and nothing else. I watched the dramas where she was as a leading actress only for male leading actors…. She is awful as an actress. Thanks God and her for her decline. Nowadays I am enjoying this drama with beautiful, delicate, intelligent and soft actress Sung Yoo Ri and handsome, smart actors Kang Ji Hwan and Sung Yoo Ri. THANKS.

  50. 50 : Hanna Says:

    great drama!! I think it’s better than Doctors (SBS)!!

  51. 51 : Cheo Says:

    Drama is not getting due credit it truly deserves.
    Definitely a good drama worth watching.

  52. 52 : You Pham Says:

    At the beginning this drama was intense but gradually the plots dragged on 2 much. Now I want it 2 end cuz it’s getting boring.

  53. 53 : Jin Says:

    Excuse me Yuri’s character is Cha Jung Eun and Oh Soo Yeon not Cha So yeon
    and Yeul Eum was young Cha Jung Eun

  54. 54 : flower Says:

    I hope KKT and OSY will be together in the end. Always love Kang ji hwan and Sung Yu ri couple..

  55. 55 : Marry Joy P Vego Says:

    Definitely my most awaited drama..Go Kang Ji Wan.I beleive JiWan is a better choice for the Role ang Kang Gitan

  56. 56 : Dauda Nigeria kano Says:

    Aaattt a 0mrraaaaaaaa what a drama

  57. 57 : Mlee Says:

    Monster disappointed it’s fans! The end is not worth all the time invested into watching Monster. At least the writers should have let Kang Gi Tan have his vision and Seo Yeon. Very disappointed with the ending of Monster.

  58. 58 : Gonjeng Says:

    Don’t waste your time watching this .. or you will becoming a real monster ..

  59. 59 : Winnie Says:

    Totally agree with @Mlee what is this ending? We watched 50 episodes for this? We needed 5 min more with a satisfactory ending. It was good than dragged than good than aweful ending :<

  60. 60 : Cheo Says:

    Gonna missed the great cast and their brilliant performance.

  61. 61 : Hlee Says:

    I totally agree with Mlee’s comment. I was very disappointed with the ending. Kang Gi Tan deserves a much better life than losing his vision and his first love after what he had gone through. What was wrong with the writer and producer? Why they had to make their viewers sad and unhappy?

  62. 62 : shiva Says:

    Worst Drama, I have ever watched. 50 episodes for revenge on one person… the drama gone down the hill from episode 19, Kang Ji Hwan is a great actor, but chose a wrong drama.

  63. 63 : Jin Says:

    I think Im the only one that liked the ending even though it made me mad I don’t deny I wanted KT to have soo yeon at the end but I Feel like the drama was worth my time really I did & didn’t want the happy ending but I so loved their last moment Together <3 <3 I enjoyed watching it and I dont think I wasted my time

  64. 64 : Cheo Says:

    @ Jin
    You are definitely not alone. I am an ardent fan of KJH and I enjoyed watching the drama too! 😊😊

  65. 65 : K. Smee Says:

    Really really love this drama!
    It’s a great one and I have enjoyed and learned a lot from it! Seem like it a real story
