    @Gina: the scene in the car was of Ha Juntae talking to Lee Shinmi’s father – they both missed the flight. I think this was after Cheolmin died, but Juntae was going to go ahead to Kyrgyzstan on his own to pursue metals business. He did not show Shinmi’s father the necklace. He’d shown Cheolmin the necklace just before the man’s death.

    Lee Si Young’s acting was AWESOME….I loved how natural she is with the comic roles. Still on the 12’th episode. Thought i should highlight what i liked about the show so far. Lead chemistry is getting better but not that great. 🙂

    Lizpark Says:

    The song that Seok Bong sung when he’s busking is Falling Slowly by Glen Hansard.

    Kdrama_fan Says:

    The lead male character is absurd. This character is a pain in the neck. He just does many even illegal things.

  27. 127
    Kdrama_fan Says:

    This is the first drama I do not like because of the lead male actor. He is searching for his father for what reasons? To be rich, come on.

  28. 128
    Kdrama_fan Says:

    Nam Goong Min is not favorable at all. His hair style is ugly. His face is not appealing at all not showing much emotion, simply monotone. In every drama, I watched this person plays a stupid role (Cheongdamdong Alice), or a sly, bad person (The birth of the rich), or a person with lopsided love (Can you hear my voice?). He needs to choose a drama wisely to show that he is favorable. Cut that ugly hair, since he is not even young.

  29. 129
    Kdrama_fan Says:

    all of u shut the f**k up…..all of u would do the same if your life was like him…..and 1 more thing it’s their drama not ours….ok
