  20. 20 : Lila Says:

    Wow, after 18th ep. I’m speechless literally. n x DAEBAK!!!!!!

  21. 21 : Lila Says:

    I hope from my heart this drama started to change mentalities for the sake of Korean children.

  22. 22 : Lila Says:

    I hope Ye-seo will save herself by not accepting the leaked subjects of exams and she’ll reveal the truth eventually, all the more so since she witnessed her father’s confrontation with her grandmother and his words to her mother which was a great lesson if you’re still teachable, I hope she is because her mother apparently isn’t, but maybe I’m wrong and Seo-jin’ll save her family after all.

  23. 23 : kurapika666 Says:

    Is it just me that I dislike Lee Soo Im doing? She really pisses me off! I like Han Seo Jin more, she portrays a very striving mom to provide her kids the best education they can have. And take note, she exceeds the effort for Yeseo since the latter wants to do her best while Seo Jin is not that strict to her younger daughter considering she’s not that dedicated to her study. I just hate Lee Tae Ran’s role her! She’s PAKIALAMERA in Filipino!

  24. 24 : kurapika666 Says:

    Epi 15 – Lee Soo Im’s husband was being a jerk now! grrrrrr

  25. 25 : Ah Ri Says:

    It has 20 eps… update properly.. i thinks this was upur first mistakr

  26. 26 : Mylene Vilar Says:

    One of the best dramas I’ve seen. Every episode is a good watch.

  27. 27 : DeeAn Says:

    SUPERB!!!!!!! Every episode full of surprise and life lesson in present life. Also, I think this drama is satire for hard education system in South Korean

  28. 28 : Yesuh😊hyena Says:

    Daebak drama. One of the most watch. Full of life lessons

  29. 29 : D Says:

    Thank you very much everyone, who made this masterpiece. It’s so unique. Great job everyone. Thank you very much again. I enjoyed a lot.

  30. 30 : Miranda Presley Says:

    JTBC, you rock!
    This is best drama 2018!!!
    No doubt that the ratings are going bigger day by day, because the storyline are superb!

  31. 31 : Mei Says:

    Just finished watching this drama.. now I understand why it’s the highest-rating cable drama. The storyline, cast, direction are all superb. Thanks to everyone involved in the production for giving us a memorable drama.

  32. 32 : Jun Says:

    I’m on episode 8 of this amazing drama. I now understand why it became the highest-rated Korean drama in 2018 based on peak ratings (https://www.kdramapal.com/top-korean-dramas-in-2018-in-terms-of-tv-ratings-absolute-ranking/)

  33. 33 : Kay Says:

    Beginning was quite slow for me, but each episode got better than the previous one, and it built into such an angsty and suspenseful story. Very interesting!

  34. 34 : Ling Says:

    Lee ji won really good as ye bin

  35. 35 : Ling Says:

    When Myung joo finds Young jae – the scene is poetry in motion. The way Song Gun Hee rises to the occasion, sparring effortlessly against veteran actress Kim Jung Nan, one all but forgets he is only 22.

    Kim Jung Nan as Lee Myung Joo, simply stunning performance and utterly convincing in that descent into hell, madness and tragedy.

  36. 36 : Ling Says:

    What a piece of work!
    Leaves one wondering what next and wanting more : )

  37. 37 : Ling Says:

    Se ri – another child in rebellion, was a little disappointing, and seemed a tad repetitive

  38. 38 : Ling Says:

    What a cop out?!
    Disappointing. After a blow out start, it all deteriorates into feely goody unbelievability. Seo jin, ye seo, young jae’s father, all totally

    Soo im’s beautiful magnanimous spirit was wondrous to behold. Taking kay into her care, just incredible.

    Seung hye’s reunion with her husband was lovely to watch, believable yet unbelievable. Yoon se ah pretty marvellous as noh Seung hye.

    Overall, the writing wasn’t very consistent which resulted in poor characterization.
