Hongryeon, the deprived single mother, has a dream of having a happy family of her own, but this modest hope is not easy for her. Nevertheless, Hongryeon is an energetic and optimistic person who lives her life to the fullest.

  8. 8 : xueer Says:

    i like this show so much and i wan to know whether hongreyon will be together with kang tae yoon

  9. 9 : Terry Rude Says:

    This drama started out really good. I truly enjoy Korean dramas and this one started out as one of the better dramas I’ve seen. It started getting boring because the bad people in it kept getting away with their evil doings even when they got caught. It started getting repiticious. I can hardly wait for it to end. I hope Hongyeon and Taeyun get married and janghwa goes to jail for all her evil deeds.

  10. 10 : fizzy Says:

    my country is currently airing this drama.
    [it’s ep 106 or 107 now]..
    i’m really addicted to this drama.
    even though i got so irritated how janghwa always managed to get away with everything, but i’m hoping to the happy ending of both hongryeon ang taeyunni ahjusshi.. 😀

  11. 11 : xueer Says:

    this is a very nice drama
    but now janghwa has expected
    was the baby taeyun or hyeok
    i really hope that taeyun and hongryeon will be together

  12. 12 : Terry Rude Says:

    okay now the writer is really losing it…where was this “AUNTY” when Taeyun and his mother were suffering and starving…I hope the baby belongs to hyeok and Taeyun and Hongyeon can be happy already…It seems they are the only ones suffering because of janghwa and her parents..I would like to feel good about this drama but it leaves me upset every time I watch it…when is the writer going to put some happiness in it!!!!

  13. 13 : Guess who76 Says:

    I agree with Terry Rude, the drama is very frustrating. it’s like hongyeon is the only who has to be suffer, humiliated, not deserve any good things that happened to her. It’s really too much, I began to heat her character in this drama because any one in the drama has problem they held the blame for it. I think we had enough?????????

  14. 14 : Guess who76 Says:

    I want all the bad people in this drama to be punished at the end, Pleeeeeeeeeease!

  15. 15 : kramaLova Says:

    i agree with guess who and terry, this drama makes me so mad and we did have enough and who is this stupid aunt! she thinks she is his mother or something… but its so addicting i always say i wont watchi t anymore its getting stupid but the next thing i know im watching i again for some reason. plus i dont even think its taeyuns baby i think its hyeoks and i hope hongryeon and taeyun end up together but SOON!

  16. 16 : maria Says:

I’ve been trying to watch ep 90 on the internet and it’s still not showing anything. I’ve reported it broken, but nothing has been done. Hope it becomes available soon since I have no other access to Korean Drama out here! Thanks!:)

  17. 17 : maria Says:

    I love watching Korean dramas over any other Asian dramas, most especially the Tale of Two Sisters. Hope it gets repaired soon since I have no other access to watching it on tv here in san diego! Thanks!:)

  18. 18 : maria Says:

The internect access has been limited and mostly broken videos, which aren’t being repaired ASAP! I’m mostly addicted to the Tale of Jangwha and Hongreon!!!:(

  37. 37 : Jamie Hartford Says:

    I am relatively late! I am watching this drama because of Yoon Hae Young! The drama is so good so far. But 150 episodes, it seems like there’ll be a lot of pain coming to Hongryeon’s way. She’s too kind for her own good! She believes everyone is good nature unless she sees their faults in her own eyes. Her character really reminds me of Choi Su Jung’s character in My Only One. They both took other people’s charge. And these two characters are the most down to earth, takes everyone’s bully and take all kinds of crap from others. Most important, they have that one person, Taeyun in Love and Obsession and Hong Ju in My Only One, who’s on their side!
