    that was such an amazing drama *_____* im still not over yet !!!! i still would like to clear up the ending though so i understand it more… D: so S P O I L E R A L E R T !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    when jang woo disappeared.. where the heck was he for 60 years ?! :O i find it somewhat odd that he just suddenly floated back to south korea after 60 years :\ maybe he was part of the north but wouldn’t they kill him by then because he was the captain of the south? D: i mean, between those years he could’ve snuck back but why 60 years? D: such a big gap.. i dont really understand..
    and it’s a shame that su yeon died before jang woo had a chance to meet with her again D: i was so heartbroken omg … after all they went through i was still hoping that he would at least see her after 60 years LOL
    ahhhhh >< and another thing … on the bus with tae ho(very end), did jang woo pass away because he suddenly went all limp as if he fell asleep but he was reunited with su yeon in his 'dream' .. i cant tell if he was just sleeping or he actually passed away. it has been bugging me ever since i finished watching LOL any guesses?

    overall it's a shame that road number 1 had such poor rating D: IT'S SO UNDERRATED !!!! thats because when it came out, there was a lot of competition along with it :\ it's really a shame… because i thought it was really REALLY good despite how fast pace it was but i actually prefer fast stories than slow ones where they drag out the plot. it was so touching and the feelings were sooooooo real *___________* sometimes i even forget that these characters and events were fictional (for the most part i guess). .

    goodness.. i love so ji sub's work. ALL his movies, dramas , etc.. so effing good .he truely is talented *_______* im sad that road number one ended and i wish there was season 2 D: but that means it would be a continuation of the war which wouldn't be great lol still.. im still sooo attached to this story.. ill never forget it .

    kay Says:

    (a continuation of what i thought about the drama.. just a review i wrote somewhere else but might as well share here too ~)

    i thought this was an amazing drama and it exceeded my expectations of it. i don’t even know where to start .im still so attached to the story and characters *__* when i first started, i was pretty biased because so ji sub was in it (AND I EFFING LOVE HIM LOL) but after finishing this drama, i walked away satisfied and not because so ji sub was in it but because this drama was genuinely really really good.

    some may say it’s too fast or some parts didn’t make sense (eg. the breastfeeding part which i even thought was strange because she didn’t have a baby=no milk but i guess it was a way to soothe the baby?) BUT i actually LIKE fast paced stories. i absolutely hate stories that drag and develop after 5 or so episodes. road number one got straight to the point. there wasn’t enough time in the beginning to develop connections with the characters because everything was thrown at us at once but it was understandable because that reflected how war time was. everything happened so fast and no one had time to stop and breathe. it wouldn’t make sense if the story moved slowly because that would ruin the feeling of how the war was. that’s how i interpret the pace of the drama.

    a lot of people also do not like KHN’s acting but i disagree completely. how many of us here can cry so tragically like that ? let’s be honest–how many of us can actually pull her character off ? i can’t imagine how hard it must’ve been for KHN to really understand her character…how many times she had to review her script and change her mindset completely. and reminder, it was during a major event–the cold war. no matter how many stories we’ve heard or how much we study about its history, it’s NOT the same as actually physically being there during that time. KHN had to absorb everything in and try her best to become Soo Yeon. as an actress, she’s still learning through experiences so you have to remember and acknowledge that at least.. :\

    many people are also blaming the actors and actresses for certain parts that didn’t make sense or seem confusing but remember guys… it’s not their fault LOL they didn’t write the scripts.. it’s unfair to blame them for it when they didn’t have any control over it.

    war movies/dramas/stories are tricky. it’s a sensitive topic . i loveeee war movies and i thought this drama was extremely good. it was so touching and the emotions were so real . i keep forgetting that these characters aren’t real and most of the events did not actually happen. it’s just a shame that this drama is sooo underrated… maybe their target audience wasn’t right. maybe it’s because of their competition. maybe not that many people enjoy watching war films. there can be a number of factors but CERTAINLY NOT the fact that it was poorly filmed or the actors/actresses sucked. i refuse to accept that because it’s not true at all.

    i almost want to write a letter and have them rebroadcast this drama just to see if reactions would be the same or different LOLL seriously.. people are really missing out. i can’t emphasize that enough…

    don’t watch only one episode and jump into conclusions, make assumptions or judge. stick around and actually watch a couple more and THEN say something about it. watchiing only one episode isn’t considered ‘trying’. don’t be so quick to judge. this goes for everything else.

    OKAY LOL I’M DONE. this was a long rant/review . HAHAHAHA it just bothers me when people nit-pick about every little thing BUT barely even made an effort to give it a shot.

    road number one was beyond extraordinary and i stand by that 🙂

    What is it about the main actress? She’s really not pretty yet they use her in romantic dramas. Besides, her speech is always slurred.

    Valerie Says:

    Road Number 1 is just a meaningful picture showing the effects of war, post traumatic distress syndrome and the sufferings of lovers separated. I still do not understand why the ratings were low and this drama did not win any award. I would have given all the awards for this drama. Best actor, best actress, best drama, best director. simply swept all the prizes. Keep it up So Ji sub. Please do not bedisheartened. You had a story to protray. It is just that the public has forgotten about the war how tKoreans sufferred. I remember as the Malaysian rubber prize shot up blecause of this war.

  32. 232
    Valerie Says:

    So far that I have seen So Ji Sub’s dramas, I find that it has dealt with alot of issues.
    “Sorry I love you” dealt with children sent for adoption overseas and abandoned on the streets to fend for themselves. This must be true otherwise the director would not have dared portray this.
    “Kain and Abel” dealt with sibling jealousy and how it can take a very severe turn.
    “Road Number One” is such a good drama in that even though the budget was high, it honoured the people of South Korea at that time whilst the rest of the world slept and Malaysian rubber tappers were so rich that they bought refrigerators even though they had no electricity to store their clothes.
    “It happened in Bali” was also a tragedy stemming from a culture which must match wealth with wealth and be blowed with love.
    I have not seen “glass slipper” to make any comments but it must be equally good.

    I ‘m in love of Kim Ha Neul ;indeed,who can cry in body’s shade like her?
    I have watch ep.04, 17, 20 many times for some immortale scenes ,and that not only for her .Not all episodes are brlliant ,some of them are annoying .O my Lord ,so final, so immortal final,so clever final…an all is forgiven.
    It’s a movie of so many actors in full presence and act. Great, brilliant.
