    this is being aired currently here. not yet finish. so far, i pity and symphatize with hwang geum ran. and i dont like the father character, both fathers – han ji woong, geum ran’s biological father and adopted father, especially han ji woong (jang yong). he clearly rejects geum ran altho he knows she is his own daughter and clearly shows his preference and loyalty to jung won instead, and i wonder what kind of father actually he is. yet, when seo woo’s mother wanted to take her son back, he is described as chose seo woo over his company, to me that is kind of “inconsistent” and altho what geum ran’s did are not something to be condoned yet i dislike what han ji woong did many times more, his is unsavory character. somehow i dont really like the characters of Jang Yong, e.g. i didnt like his character in Miss Ripley as well and i dont remember the others but i dont have a positive image of him as a result of the characters that he played.
    i wonder about Kim Sang Ho, as an actor does he keep his hair that way as a requirement from his agency or directors..?? he is not really someone easy on the eyes and yet he keeps his hairdo or hair style that way – to emphasize his look – being not easy on the eyes..?? and i wonder too about his character as son in low who supports the gambling behavior of his father in law, kind of unsavory too.
    to me, this series – on a scale of 1 – 10 – only scores 7.

    I agree that geum rans real dad was really very unfair and his behavior led her to do many wrongs just to seek his love.

    Seung Joon is like a block of wood….no reason for the two girls to fight over him.

    i started watching this although it’s a few yrs old & i am hooked! never thought it wld be this addictive for me! i don’t like geum ran she’s a material girl n have high hopes to the extend that she’ll go the extra length to do bad things to jung won, i dunno but still early to judge or misjudge her as i’m just on epis 17 right now but i’m not liking her character already! jung won is much nicer & i hope she ends up with the editor in chief kim suk hoon who i like since his drama tomato!

    @CH i disagree, he may not wear his soft/kind heart on his sleeves but he’s not a block of wood as you indicated here but i’m not saying you can’t express your opinion but my opinion just differs from you with song’s character! he’s a decent man, very transparent when it comes to righteousness even with the way he objects to his mother’s type of business, etc. He’s got those humorous side/s of him in this drama if you recall when he was bathing da beum’s baby singing 3 bears 🙂 LOL i thought woah that’s one of his funny sides plus the way he jokes sometimes with jung won, etc. i think in fairness he seems very strict & as you said like a block of wood i wld say one of the reasons would be the tragic event in his father’s life….so i can u/stand his stance on how he suppress his ways in life but he’s 101% a good man & i would say it’s worth fighting for him like the two ladies are going with it! 🙂
