    Bi’s acting so cool ini this drama. He could make people laugh and cry for the same time. Although the ending’s so suprising, love Sang doo. I think this drama’s worth to watch, especially for Rain’s and Lee Dong Gun’s fans.

    Sang Doo and Bori’s scenes are the sweetest and most touching I have seen between a father and Daughter…It just makes you fall in love all over again with BI…

  9. 9 : kicko_tee. Says:

    it’s a very good drama, eventhough it has a lot of tragic scenes. one of my must-watch kdrama for all of you guys! especially when you are a fain of Bi!=]

  10. 10 : dizzykat Says:

    I love this series :)

    Does anyone know where I can get Sangdoo’s ringtone?

  11. 11 : enodemrahc Says:

    Hehe this show is nice naman. The chemistry of the characters is just right & the predicament they get themselves into is hilarious as well. Pero medyo heavy sya but nothing like Stairway TH naman. The ending is tragic but fulfilling as well. Ito ang unang Koreanovelang pinanuod ko na hasn’t been shown in the Phils. Ü

  12. 12 : SweetGothic Says:

    Whats the ending?I wan 2 buy the dvd coz im a fan of rain..

  13. 13 : joymarivic05@yahoo.com Says:

    Bi can make a good daddy and a good husband. (a spouse with Song Hye Kyo! hehehe!)

    Hey guys, I just wanna comment on something but I’m not offensing anyone here or to the cast too.. I’m just making a comment about this drama..

    Uhm, you know what..? the actresses between Hong Su Hyun (Sera) and Gong Hyo Jin (Chae Eun Hwan), I think, Sera is more cute than Eun Hwan when I compared their faces (no offense to Eun Hwan’s fans huh!). Sera’s partnership with Sangdoo is pretty good than Eun Hwan.. that’s all.

    No offense to all of you huh. I’m just commenting on what I’ve thought to this drama.

    Well, for real, Bi and Song Hye Kyo has a good combination and their partership will never last forever! 😀 Hope their special friendship relationship will turn into real partnership as a couple so they would bring happiness to all Bi-Kyo fans (just like me) worldwide..

    Love yah Rain!

  14. 14 : joymarivic05@yahoo.com Says:

    another thing is,

    I always watch the 5th Episode in this drama whereby BI sang JUST ONCE while playing a piano and another episode where he was strolling in a grocery store and dances Michael Jackson’s dance steps such as Moonwalk…

    That’s why I’m crazy over Bi/Rain because of his moves, expressions and talents.. I can’t get over with him!

    Ji Hoon oppa, I’m looking forward for your next drama with Song Hye Kyo.. how I wish it could happen..

  15. 15 : hanna_06 Says:

    i really love this drama as i am bi and lee dong gun fan….. before watching sang doo,
    the most lovely actor for me is lee dong gun but everything is change,
    rain had really act for the best in this drama…

    But i really hate the ending…….. What a SPOILER……..
    sang doo and eun hwan were died at the end….

  16. 16 : Aning Says:

    wach this drama make me cry …. but i’m happy it’s happy ending at the end….. I love you Rain…

  17. 17 : mulan Says:

    for me Rain is a versatile actor i admire him a lot. This is really good drama series. It’s 6/10

  18. 18 : MissJunsu Says:

    I love this drama. It’s so heart-warming, cute, witty, and fun with the right dosage of drama!

    One of my favorite dramas – I bought the box (and I’m not usually one to buy movies/dramas)!

  19. 19 : divi Says:

    This drama is so underated!!!! This is my favorite Kdrama. This is not definitely trendy, but has real depth to the story. The ending is remarkably well done as well.. If you haven’t watched, it really worth giving a shot.

  20. 20 : Ceci Says:

    This is Rain’s devut drama ever. And his acting was unexpectibly good. I think the character Sangdoo and Rain actually alike in real life… having obstacles and ordeals to go through… and doing very best for the loved ones…… This is heart warming yet very realistic…..

  21. 21 : Penguin Says:

    I really like this drama.
    The storyline is so touching and unexpected.
    The flashbacks often make us think about our own childhood life.
    Thumbs up to the whole production crews and casts.

  22. 22 : Lumi Says:

    Just watched this series which I had purchased over a year ago. It’s better than I had expected. Rain and Lee Dong Gun make a good buddy couple. I wish some other actress had played the Kong Hyo Jin role. She was good in THANK YOU, but her characters in SNOWMAN and SANG-DOO are very similar.

  23. 23 : zeL Says:

    just finished watching this series last month i think…
    and still, i can’t get over it!
    i think it is a great one!
    cause.. it’s very different from the other story line of k-series..
    a lot of dilemmas. was experienced of every character. as in..
    watching it was worthwhile.
    one can learn so many things…
    at the end.. i just can’t stop crying…
    i recommend this…^^,

  24. 24 : Lyda Says:

    I like this drama very much!! it is fun n sometimes sad-so sad. I like Rain in this series!! He is really funny!! hahehah! the love story in this drama is very upset!! I cry alot when watching it!

  25. 25 : Lyda Says:

    Anyway, why there is no OST link here?!!! I really love d OST(sound track in this drama)! so sad that it doesnt has!

    Anyone here some of the songs in this drama??! if so, pleas! send to me. My mail address is vann_lyda111@yahoo.com. Thanks in advance if you could send some to me!!

  26. 26 : Goong Ju Says:

    I enjoyed the drama so much. Love the acting of RAIN & GONG HYO JIN, good chemistry. LEE DONG GUN’s character as Kang Min Suk was great, he touched many woman’s heart. The drama made you laugh & cry. Very heartwarming drama, worth to watch.

  27. 27 : KENNETH Says:

    i love this drama! eun hwan and sang doo ended up with a baby!!! they’re not dead!! lee dong gun & rain bi.. they are the best rivals for the heart or song hye kyo.. hehehehe i have a nice tandem!!! good job rain! nice one lee dong gun!!

  28. 28 : KENNETH Says:


  29. 29 : Puma Says:

    Please tell me what happens at the end? do they die or live happily ever after. I bought the dvd but subtitles were terrible since I don’t understand Korean it was hard to fathom at the end…. do they imagine the happy end? or it really does happen?

  30. 30 : LuV Says:

  41. 41 : mel Says:

    looks like interesting…. where can i find this movie?

  42. 42 : tkaione Says:

    This was such a an emotional, yet sometimes funny drama. Rain almost flawless portraying Sang Doo; he really drew me in to his character. I was completely absorbed in his scenes and especially scenes with his daughter and Eun-hwan as played by Gong Hyo Jin. The supporting cast was also fantastic. Excellent writing and direction. I highly recommend this drama.

  43. 43 : ptsh836 Says:

    i saw this drama ages ago but i can still remember rain’s acting was excellent here; this being his debut drama n all….he was able to make u laugh n cry along with him as his character was too pitiful n sad. he was saddled with a sick child who was not even his (without his knowledge) n he had to work as a gigolo to support her hospital bills.

    when he met up with his first luv, eun-hwan, we were taken back to when they were schoolmates in luv, n how an unfortunate incident left him institutionalized at a reform school for juveniles; n how he got dumped by his adoptive parents n got separated fr eun-hwan. the flashbacks were too sad n heartbreaking to bear n this was also where tears flowed freely n uncontrollably for all audiences.

    all in all, a very good effort by rain….super story n solid casts make this drama an endearing one….

  44. 44 : bbb Says:

    […] Bad Love Rating : 3 out of 5 […]

  50. 50 : Donna Arenas Says:

    Don’t think Gong Hyo job is pretty enough to be in any roles. Why does she keep getting picked. Didn’t like her in Pasta, the Greatest love and now this? As a love interest for Bi Rain? Why her?

  51. 51 : AGeer Says:

    uri oppaa kachiiisooyoooo…saranghaaeeeee

  52. 52 : Redjane Says:

    Seeing that Bi and Lee Dong Gun are the male leads, this is oppa “heaven” for me, LOL (^_^) will definitely watch!

  53. 53 : Shu Suzuki Says:

    @Donna Arenas

    Gong Hyo Jin is so beautiful! I guess because she is not all done up with plastic surgery she not beautiful to some people. Not only is she so pretty she is one of the best actress in Kdrama.
