    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.

    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.

    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.
