    eryn Says:

    The storyline is too predictable, lame, and cheesy. Painfully weak acting by the lead actress.Even allowing for the fact that it’s fiction, I am always surprised how Korean dramas have their characters become penniless from being filthy rich. Don’t rich Koreans have insurances or trust funds?

    eny Says:

    this drama not really bad but not good too, i wonder why the rating is so high, is it because of Lee seung gi popularity?

    This is good drama, i miss this drama so much. i watched this drama last year. now i’m gonna watch it again after finishing Oh my lady.

    This is one of my fave drama.

    I don’t think so, this drama deserve to get high rating because it has solid and strong story line.

    Stupid ending, I liked the stepmother and stepsister more to be honest…at least she knows that family comes first unlike the self-righteous twit of a main character who stole her sister’s fiancée and thinks nothing of it…bitch

    lee hye ae Says:

    I have watched many Korean dramas after Shining Inheritance but it still remains as one of my favorites. This was where I began admiring Lee Seung Gi as an actor. ^^ He has a great chemistry with Han Hyo Joo, which made me wish that they become a real couple. Moon Chae Won and Bae Soo Bin also portrayed their roles well. Their performance in this drama really helped the four of them to be recognized and opened many drama opportunities for them. This is a Korean drama that I will never get tired of watching over and over again. ^^
