    Normally they reveal the lost child’s identity towards the end of the drama. This one gets right to it at the start. I like it. Damn, Shin Hye Sun is a good actress and I always thought she would eventually play a role that brings out her best. This looks like one.

    Park Si Hoo had a fanmeeting in Jeju saturday 2 Sept. and he said that in 1st ep. he had a bad flu when filming it, that’s why his face looks a bit swollen and he said that the his character CDK is idealistic and interesting and become more and more interesting with every episodes.

    USA Says:

    PSH deserves a 2nd chance – no doubt it’s been a humbling experience to the rising star. Stardom invites good/bad/ugly women/men with motives. He misjudged stupid, cunning, naive, idiot women & paid the price with his life=years in his prime. What business any women have going to a bachelor’s apartment drunk at 2-3am? Bible states naivety is sin, believe it or not. In the court of law, ignorance is not a defense. Try telling the court you didn’t know what the speed limit was & see if the court will excuse your ticket. If you were invited by single or married to his house at 2-4am, would you go? If yes, then what would be your expectations? Expect hugs from the guy? If that’s your thinking, you’re an idiot, naive, stupid. Because You & only you placed yourself in a compromising position. Your action & decision alone incriminated herself in the eyes of public. Strangers will judge you based on your actions. Guilty by association implies what? Why parents tell you not to hangout w/troubled kids? Birds of a feather flock together implies what? That ‘what’ is the reality of perception. We are held accountable for our actions and decisions. PSH too should have known inviting strange women, who likely flattered & confessed their/her dying love/infatuation to him, would be trouble, but wisdom was absent for all parties involved. Bet PSH learned & wont make the same mistake twice. But women will still be after him particularly if he ascends to the stardom again, and hopefully vanity won’t prevail rather humility & modesty. All said, he’s a good actor. PSH in Family Honor was great. Wish him the best. Will be watching this….

    TooMuchSalt Says:

    So, are they gonna end up as brother and sister or i don’t know what’s the deal with this?

  43. 43
    USA Says:

    Nonuts & TooMuchSalt,
    Chill. 2 scenarios for PSH & SHS to be romantically involved. 1) PSH is adopted from an orphanage or extended relative. That younger daughter may also be adopted or from father’s mistress 😆. Noticed how PSH is keenly aware of haves & have-nots, and he doesn’t abuse his wealth to less fortunate? 2) SHS adopted mother of 25 years played along with the Chaebol family to give SHS better opportunities in life? Either way, I was hoping to see SHS serving some justice to rich spoiled arses today… guess I’ll have to wait…

  44. 44
    Salma Says:

    I think PSH will discover he is not their son and he is adopted

  45. 45
    Nonuts Says:

    The main character is her own enemy. Her hardships hadn’t taught her to adopt a different attitude, one that is tempered with the knowledge that it is easy to destroy a person when you have power. So making sure one’s temper is under control is a necessary virtue to cultivate because there is always someone beneath you or your equal be that a colleague at work, a family member or your husband/boyfriend. Her temper gets the best of her . . . really.

  46. 46
    Nonuts Says:

    I just love the energy of this drama. The characters don’t have the same appeal as the characters in “Father is Strange” but hopefully it entertains equally well.

    Yey, I’m gonna watch this for sure. I like Shin Hye Sun and I’m excited for her landing a leading role this time. I liked her in Five Children and She Was Pretty.
