  9. 9 : Mouna Says:

    Amazing drama, i love it so much

  10. 10 : Hyeongnam Says:

    Kinda depressing cos you wanna reach out and beat the crap out of the child abuser then throw the mother into the sea at high tide when the sharks are feeding. Geeze, I can’t watch anymore I might end up a pretzel.

  11. 11 : Snow Says:

    I’m really loving this drama. I’m also interested in what happened to Soo Jin when she was a child. Her adopted mother seems as if she may be her real mother–she’s way to jealous and possessive of Soo Jin. I just want to take Hye Na’s mother and beat some sense into her then throw her into jail.

  12. 12 : micaela Says:

  13. 13 : Redlucky Says:

    Heo Yool is perfect too! Can’t wait more episodes.

  14. 14 : Lclarakl Says:

    No words. This is some of the best acting I’ve seen in a Korean drama. I’m amazed at Heo Yool, the child actress. She’s going far in her career. I also could feel the emotions of Lee Bo Young–awesome. This drama is so good and the whole cast has done a great job.

  15. 15 : micaela Says:
