This is the story of two women, Seo Jung Eun and Han Yoo Kyung, who walk very different paths to achieve their desires. Seo Jung Eun is a strong and courageous woman who has suffered a difficult life, having grown up in an orphanage, but continues to embrace people around her despite longing for affection herself. Jung Eun harbours the hope that she will meet her mother if she becomes a star, striving to reach her goal and overcome her suffering with her pure and innocent nature. In contrast, Han Yoo Kyung has a birth secret for which she is willing to throw away everything in order to get revenge. The “thorn birds” of the title refers to Jung Eun’s character, who only brings out her best at the cost of great pain. A thorn bird is a mythical bird who searches for a thorn tree from the day it is born. When it finds it, the bird impales itself upon the sharpest thorn, and rises above the agony to sing the most beautiful song ever heard.

  15. 15 : KDaddict Says:

    This drama is uninteresting so far. The 2nd actress has eyes and mouth that look like those of a goldfish. She lacks charisma. The woman she plays has the character of a rat. The only reason to watch this is Joo Sang Wook.

    What’s going on here, another KBS drama with low viewership numbers. No surprise though, considering it’s following the so-so drama “President”, which drove the viewers away. Maybe they can win some of them back before it ends. lol.

    I do have to agree with a previous poster regarding one of the female leads. Her “weird” looks (as seen in the publicity photos) might have scared the viewers away. lol Just kidding. lol

    Looks like I will have to wait for the following drama, called “Maids”, which is scheduled to follow next in the W/Th timeslot. The KBS drama can’t be ALL bad, can they??? lol

  21. 21 : shulien Says:

    i like the actor very much, watch him in GIANT, that is why watching this show again. but something wrong about the acting of the lead actress too much cute scene.
    and the story too many mystery about their birthing mother the handsome guy , lead girl and the second lead girl.
    i hope will not end up boring.

    like kim tee hee’s drama what is that PRINCESS? WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH WASTED

    i support this drama…

  24. 24 : kyuqi Says:

    this drama SUCKS!its not romantic and doesnt make sense at all!i swear!
    the drama plot,really doesnt make a slightest bit of logic.especially episode 6.duh~
    the main actress character in the drama really makes u explode wif embarassment and disgust.

  25. 25 : Brianna Says:

    Yes Seo Do Young looks much better here.. Younger looking (probably because he’s a bit chubby).. Unlike in most of “Spring Waltz” scenes, where he looks older, because he looks haggard, being skinny, and with “topsy turvey” hair.. Joo Sang Wook is also goodlooking at “Queen Seon Deok”.. Kim Min Jung (the one with big eyes) acts good in “Fashion 70’s”, and “New Heart”.. I finished watching episode 1 of “Thorn Birds” only minutes ago, i will make my comment probably after watching 5-6 episodes.. So far, i think i will like this drama..

  26. 26 : KDaddict Says:

    I agree with kyuqi-#24, Lousy show! I gave up after 2 episodes.

  27. 27 : via Says:

    wah.. i am happy to know that i am not the only one who thinks that the second lead actress is ugly and not suite for her role, i mean if you want to seduce you bf friend, that you must be looking better than your friend right? i dont know why JSW even think of her although she kissed him, he has to be throw up after the kiss.. i know i will.. hahahaha… i love han hye jin role here, she is beautiful,i hope she will find out about the betrayal that her boyfriend and her friend has done for her..

  28. 28 : maryta Says:

    I love this drama……the story is good and I hope the story growth to expose the evil friend and the love of the two main leader ———–Han Hye Jin and Kim So Hyun———
    she is a good actress and she looks really beatiful!!!!!!!!
    the men the leader is so atractive
    the cousin od the leader is handsome

    @27 via

    Seduce a friend no need to be too pretty – as long as you are daring, vain & you dare to flirt. Guys sometimes like this kind of girls — right??? or is it they have no eyes to see ??

    Hv watched Ep 10. Don’t understand why lead actress Han Hye Jin wasted her 6 years raising her gf’s child and let people misunderstood her for so long. Is she really that great?
    She now staying under the same with lead actor for 6 yrs and the little girl call him uncle and call HHJ mother.
    Ep11 – HHJ bad girlfriend come back to korea……..

  33. 33 : ommo....ommo Says:

    wats wrong with the hero after one nite stand he consider to married the second heroin..euuwwww…dat B**** really annoyed me…

  34. 34 : qiqi Says:

    i just want to ask who is the father of the child that HHJ raise? i only watched untill ep 3 because i think it’s too bored but when i watch ep 10 i found the story getting more interesting. so can anyone tell me who is the father again?

  35. 35 : melati Says:

    First, i dont think we have a right to insult person’s look.

    i pretty excited to follow this drama at the beginning. however after 5 episodes, i want to stop. i agree with some comment here that the drama plot doesnt make sense. i dont get it the emotion in this drama. after something happen they act confusing emotion. i mean the emotion doesnt suit to what just happen huhuhuhu

  36. 36 : Konstance Says:

    Seo Jung Eun why she has to bear all the blame of the things she didn’t even commiited? The plot is not realistic.

  37. 37 : kdfan Says:

    some of the best drama i’ve watched have low ratings. while its an indication, sometimes it does not represent the quality of a drama.

    the plot was a little far fetched in how Jung Eun took up the responsibility for YooKyung’s baby and mother but I found Han HyeJin and Cha Hwayun’s acting when they discovered the truth was truly touching.

    I’m on to ep 11. I am truly enjoying this drama. All the actors are doing a good job. I look forward to each eposide and cant wait for the part when the leads pair up.

  38. 38 : OK OK OK Says:

    @34 qiqi

    Joo Sang Wook as Lee Young Jo slept with 2nd lead actress Kim Min Jung as Han Yoo Kyung and she is pregnant with his child. She did not tell him becoz she found out that JSW’s father or grandpa is the cause for separating her and her mother. So Kim Min Jung was very angry that she does not want to keep her baby girl and ask her good friend Han Hye Jin to put it in the orphanage. HHJ end up bringing up the girl herself. HHJ is staying under the same roof with lead actor JSW (she still likes him alot). HHJ does not know that JSW & KMJ are of intimate relationship becoz all keep their mouth shut. I wonder what happen if HHJ found out… ha ha ha
    wasted her 6 yrs waiting for a guy and bringing up her so call “gd friend” little girl… I find JSW’s cousin the tall handsome guy Seo Do Young more charming 🙂

    this drama has no common sense…IS IT POSSIBLE for a woman who just delivered a baby to wear tight clothes with flat tummy???? UNREALISTIC at all… LOL… and the male lead is too old… the female lead acts too good… very annoying!! there is no such people like this in this world… this drama SUCKS!!!! the second female is damn ugly…look like a gold fish… ahhahahahahah XD

  45. 45 : monique Says:

    luv luv this drama it as a good plot and very must interesting.

  46. 46 : OK OK OK Says:

    ep 14

    I am so glad that HHJ found out about the relationship between JSW & KMJ just before the engagement ceremony. I always finds that HHJ has more feeling for JSW but not JSW towards HHJ. Hope that Seo Do Young can end up with HHJ becoz he really cares for her. 🙂

  47. 47 : genordonez Says:

    Just finished watching ep 12.im wondering when the time comes that the mom(old) would meet her daughter(2nd lead),what would happen?i hate it when I have to wait for the ending.hope its not to heart breaking.

  48. 48 : yovita Says:

    I love Joo Sang Wook, I love this drama!!!

  49. 49 : Jae Says:

    Yes, storyline is unrealistic. However, this what keeps viewers entertained. Every episode I watched I can’t help but feel sorry for Jung Eun. It was impressive to finally see her standing up to Yoo Kyung when Yoo Kyung came to the house to see Han Byul. I like to see her tough up some more. I also believe that Young Jo has stronger feelings for Yoo Kyung. I like to see Jung Eun to end up with Kang Woo. It seems his feelings are more genuine towards Jung Eun. It would be different than most plots. The main female lead ending up with the 2nd male lead. Wouldn’t that be great? Can’t wait for the next episode. Let hope the writers surprise us with a different love outcome than most dramas love ending.

  50. 50 : izzy Says:

    People like the 2nd female lead could exist in real life. It’s quite unbelievable but they do exist, just utterly evil and greedy. I like how the episodes progress.

    I didn’t like how stupid the female lead at first by letting her so-called friend did those awful things to her but as the story unfolded, I kinda understood her. I just wish that there would be a happy ending so I’d not be heartbroken. Please, just please NO to a tragic ending!!!

    Btw, I’m rooting for the 2nd male lead to end up with the female lead. It’s quite unusual but I just love that kind of ending. 🙂

  52. 52 : OK OK OK Says:

    Episodes 16
    Kim Min Jung is so thick skin. She always behaves so confidently in front of HHJ. Always asked HHJ what if JSW knows he is the father of the little girl, whatever belongs to HHJ will goes back to her.

    I really hope that KMJ tells JSW everything and see what kind of expression he has (bang his head on the wall) ha ha

    Hope that JSW goes back to KMJ – who ask him did not trust HHJ and even fall for KMJ.
    Hope HHJ end up with Seo Do Young because from the very beginning, he always trust HHJ – never doubt about her character and always there for her, fight for her. 🙂 I also hope HHJ will open her eyes wide choosing the right man & friend…….

  53. 53 : Meg Says:

    @Joo Sang Wook, we support you till the end. Don’t give up whatever difficulties that you are going through. I love your acting.

  55. 55 : Cuppy Says:

    I really can’t stand the goldfish actress she’s so ugly. I wonder who chosen her to act in this role and spoil the whole drama. If the lead actor end up with her then the scriptwriter can go and fly kite.

  56. 56 : Cuppy Says:

    kim min jung is the ugly goldfish actress!

  57. 57 : KDaddict Says:

    Well, it does make you wonder what the goldfish actress has to do to get this role.

  58. 58 : KDaddict Says:

    If you cruise other websites hosting this drama, you’ll see that the comments are all of 3 categories, n I QUOTE:
    1. The scriptwriter must be sick in the head cos the story makes no sense.
    2. 2nd actress is too ugly. She looks so ugly when she cries that it is scary.
    3. People are watching cos they like Joo Sang Wook, n cos they r waiting for something good to happen to HHJ’s character.

    Personally I quit after 2 eps cos a nonsense script is an insult to our intelligence.

  59. 59 : magsie Says:

    For me, this drama is interesting and entertaining. I love all the maincast
    because they are all goodlooking. I dont really mind the physical appearance of the supporting casts as long as they can act. This drama is full of emotions and I am looking forward to the end when jung eun will
    finally be rewarded for all her sacrifices. It would be great to see her get the man she loves, the daughter she raised but not hers and the mom
    who wants jung eun to be her daughter. I’m so excited and eagerly waiting
    for the final episode of this drama. I hope I wont be disappointed.

  60. 60 : OK OK OK Says:

    I like JSW but I don’t like his character here. For 6 years, when HHJ staying under the same roof as him yet he didn’t woo her at all until Seo Do Young said he is going after HHJ – he then quickly propose to HHJ.
    Even when HHJ kiss him earlier, I feel that he response “coldly”

    When ex-gf crying and phone JSW, he quickly rush to her side “forgetting” he is already HHJ fiance ?

    I have watched & liked this drama by Joo Sang Wook & Park Shin Hye in Kimcheed Radish Cubes (MBC, 2007) 🙂

  61. 61 : magsie Says:

    I dont know why i feel some korean dramas should be watched backward
    especially this one, if you dont want to be a masochist watching this drama, ha ha ha! You may want to start at episode 9 to 15 to really appreciate the depth of this series and I bet you wont stop until til the end. Hope you’ll
    enjoy this drama as much as i did.

  62. 62 : kdfan Says:

    interestingly i too would like to see HHJ choose SDY instead of JSW. Mostly bec like OK mentioned JSW was never really into HHJ until SDY showed his persistence. Also, the chemistry between HHJ and JSW is not there.

    this drama had a slow start but the story unfolds nicely and the angst build-up was what made me hooked. As ridiculous as some of the plot was, I will watch till the end to savour the joy of HHJ’s hard-earned happiness.

    I’m glad HHJ asked KMJ to handle JSW herself at end of ep 16. Way to go girl! Time to live your life!

  63. 63 : OK OK OK Says:

    Ep 17

    Ye…… KMJ tells JSW everything. JSW got so mad that he “nearly” bang by cars & trees. He later bang his fist on the wall (not his head) ha ha. 🙂

    I wonder SDY will stop wooing HHJ becoz he now knows that his father is the culprit that leads to all these.

    Even if it is, there is no excuse for KMJ to give away her own child.

  64. 64 : kyuqi Says:

    K addict: ur right!it doesnt makes sense at all.duh!dun waste my anger and time on watching such ridiculous drama.worst drama ever in korea.i watched it at the 1st place for seo doh young.give up!

  65. 65 : karen Says:

    i love this drama Han Hye Jin is a very good actress… hope that Han Hye Jin will end up to Seo Do Young they look better and amazing together..

    im hoping that joo sang wook will end up to Han hye Jin…i just dont like the supporting actress…she’s ugly and seo dong young will find the designer to be his love interest… plz…m begging u joo sang wook and Han Hye jin plz till the end…

  67. 67 : kahlan Says:

  68. 68 : Drama#1Fan Says:

    Really enjoyed this drama…..the main guys are gorgeous to look at. Han Hye Jin and Joo Sang Wook look wonderful together, great story, great cast…what’s not to like. Look forward to more great work from JSW and SDY!!!

  69. 69 : Cheers_kimn Says:

    actually..I hope dat HHJ will end up with SDY….cause SDY who love her more and believe her from the beginning…..better than JSW who cannot forget about his evil ex gf…….If i become HHJ i will tell direct to KMJ face…if she want she can take JSW with her and leave HHJ alone with hanbyul..cause hanbyul is belong to HHJ….

  70. 70 : kimchilee Says:

    SDW and HHJ is the only reason I watched this but I cannot stomach her undying lover for JSW.. she should look to SDW who has never waivered in his love for her even though he thought her a mother with a child. I hope the writers will cast SDW and HHJ together in the end and then JSW shld end up with KMJ, the father and mother of the child to begin with.

  71. 71 : kimchilee Says:

    sorry.. I meant SDY and not SDW.. SDY and HHJ together in the end please.. writers..

  72. 72 : Princess Yul Says:

    Jst finished watched ep18…can wait for the next ep and the ending….
    its sad to see Jung eun holding the sadness inside her heart..she never let it out like yu kyung who keep using her tears to get others sympathized….i hate jung eun being so kind…and i hate see other ppl start to accept yu kyung…cant wait to see the ending…i hope jung eun can hve a happy life forever…and yu kyung should go anywhere n never show her evil face anymore…

    *i get to emotional even this just a drama..huhu

  73. 73 : heather Says:

    Ilove this drama. Joo Sang Wook is the main reason for me to watch this drama. I love the casts. Good Luck to JSW and Thorn Bird. JSW Fighting!

  74. 74 : kdfan Says:

    i was hoping for a sizzling ep 18 with JSW realizing the sacrifices made by HHJ but what a let down. chemistry is so lacking here!

  75. 75 : purplelavender Says:

    Now, waiting for ep. 19 & 20. Overall, i like this drama so much. I guess that will happy ending for Yong Jo, Jung Eun & Yoo Kyung.
    My imagination: Han Byul will need some blood or whatever from his parent but then not match with her daddy. So her mom will donate to her…then she will left to US forever or else she’s death (wakkakakakaka) The end…:)

  76. 76 : yulkimn Says:

    kdfan…i agree with u…i dun see love between JSW and HHJ as deep as JSW love to KMJ….they too formal to each other…..hmmm…when JSW confessed his love to KMJ i hope JSW will hug her tite….but it end with they just looking each other…where the passion???…………lolz

  77. 77 : jabz Says:

    love this drama… can’t wait to see the last two episodes…

  78. 78 : KDaddict Says:

    That’s an interesting nickname! Have you tried New Tales of Gisaeng? It’s really good. I love it, and also Shining. I recommend them. See you on those or other threads.

  80. 80 : Meg Says:

    I love the ending…it touches me. I love the way Joo Sang Wook and Han Hye Jin are together.

  81. 81 : JJ Says:

    i luvd this drama, i’m now a big fan of Joo sang wook….what a good actor! i highly recommend this! i also liked soo do young since spring waltz & i just hope he gets a lead role next time! this drama made me cry!

  82. 82 : becky Says:

    omg, it’s finished???? can anybody pleeeasee tell me what happened? actually, this drama is kinda nice to watch….I nearly passed it out….true, the beginning plot was boring to watch, but the plot advanced quickly after the 6 years….although, it still moved considerably slow to me, but hey, welcome to kdramaland!
    also, KMJ is kinda pretty after she straightened her hair and when she doesn’t cry or sulk (meaning when she smiles)

  83. 83 : fadila Says:

    the ending so beautiful, Jang Sang Wook and Han Hye Jin definitely have the on screen chemistry …

  84. 84 : fadila Says:

    the beginning of this drama is so boring….most comments here have explained why it is but its JSW, HHY & SDY made me continue watching and it get interesting to watch how HHY come up to fight and be brave to face KMJ juz because she love her daughter… though many might say JSW did not show much love to HHJ … still he regretted for not believing in HHJ…. the episode 20 show JSW love towards HHJ when he said he is happy to see HHJ come running to him….

  85. 85 : d14h Says:

    I really like this drama, not boring at all, I cry alot . Han Hye Jin look so beautiful….. 🙂

  86. 86 : caca Says:

    i really……really like this drama, the lead actor n actres are so amazing, handsome, n beautiful. Nice couple n story, hope there is another drama like that.

    Why are the Korean lovers not lovers at all? They seem to be so cold and do not show any passion. I expected a little bit of warmth in the near end episodes but it was still colder than first time acquaintances. Can you improve on this Mr. Writer? The end sometimes do not show the supposed lovers natural reaction to each other. Or simply no reaction towards a loved one at all! BOOORIIING!

    Lovely! Lovely! It is always a delight to watch a drama that makes me look forward for the next, and the next episodes. The “good girl” and the “bad gir” characters maybe hard for people to relate and understand but this is why I so love it. Go! Soar…thorn birds!!

    i like it.although i was afraid that the ending will not be a happy one. am glad that Jsw and KMJ end up with each other.it’s always nice to see that good triumph over evil.

  92. 92 : via Says:

    boring drama, I skipped alot, I can’t understand Jung Eun for being always bully by her ex close friend.. and I hate when the time passes by like that, 6 years later, why they didn’t try to build the story step by step and also what happend to Jung Eun and Young Jo for all those years they spent together (at the ahjuma house) should be describe alot deeper, the acting wasn’t convincing at all, I can’t feel their chemistry, they cold towards each other, although Jung Eun is the one whose falling for Young Jo first, although Young Jo did choose Jung Eun to be with him, but still he is cold to Jung Eun and I just think he choice to stay with her because he feels sorry for missunderstood her all this year not because he loves her and because it just the right thing to do and he doesn’t want to hurt her anymore.
    But in the other hand I can feel chemistry of Kang Woo to Jung Eun, he loves her that I can tell, not because its the right thing to do, but its what his heart tells him that he loves her. I wish Kang Woo would end up with Jung Eun.

    if u jus grit ur teeth, close ur eyes n make it till epi 13…u wud hv survived da dumping of kdrama syndrome! of course seo jung eun had to be da most naive, stupid character ever written 4 a heroine lead..4 being bullied into accepting baby n mother of han yoo kyung while da latter scoots off without a shred of guilt…i now know why she is so ugly! its cuz her character is too…too unbelievably bad, evil no wonder she looks like a goldfish!! anyway..another character dat threatens to derail ur decision to watch dis drama is da male lead himself!…how cud he be so flawed n blind as to fall 4 yoo kyung n her lies! he’s naive n unbecoming 4 a lead! no wonder many viewers abandon ship after jus 2 or 3 epis…i dun blame them..i too was overwhelmed with disgust n frustrations 4 all these 3 characters….but after overcoming my personal hurdles…da drama did took a turn 4 da better…exactly 6 yrs after jung eun was burdened with baby n mom…things did look better 4 her n young jo..who is growing wiser with age, i suppose..n things r going to be exciting after yoo kyung’s return…among all da actors here…i admire cha hwa yun who acted as lee ae rin da most! her acting is awesome!…han hye jin most of da times appear detached n cold n at other times, overacts quite a bit…joo sang wook is also expressionless at times…kim min jung aka da goldfish…is jus dat…overacting a lot…with such huge pools as eyes n thick fat lips..shes truly ugly when she cries…seo do young acts natural n himself most of da times…hate it dat there is alwayz dis 2nd male lead who will pine away helplessly, silently 4 his luv who hve eyes only 4 da lead….

    may i ask you..is this drama happy ending?
    actually i like comedy and romantic drama such as full house, prosecutor princess, my princess, you’re beautifull.

    thanks for the reply guys =)

  96. 96 : jade Says:

    may i ask you all? is this drama happy ending even, most people said that the main character always bullying?

    actually i like comedy romantic drama such as full house, you’re beautifull, prosecutor princess, my princess etc

    thankyou for all your comment =)

  97. 97 : ju1668 Says:

    I agree with yulkimn. Viewers only saw the love/passion between JSW & KMJ. Was expecting more warmth and affection after JSW “declared” his love to HHJ. HHJ just looked sadly. Watched this cos of JSW. Can’t blamed the cast for acting that way. I would blamed it on writer/director. Can’t feel the deep love from JSW towards HHJ (regretfully). He just showed protectiveness/affection and we viewers have to “interprete” it as love, I guess and be satisfied with that. Loved the comment abt KMJ “goldfish” eyes! Haha.

    I wanted to see her get married in her wedding dress. It would have been nice with their daughter as the flower girl.

  99. 99 : Chen Says:

    this drama is a little bit confused me. when Lee and seo live together in her aunt’s house, the show should describe much more than the movie such as how they build their relationship closer. Actually korean drama is really good at this. i think the writer skipped too much about this part and described too much about all the side relationships like lee and lee’s brothers. it makes the side line of the movie is too boring and too long.
    Anyway, Joo san woo and han hye jin’s performance is excellent. i always like their tv show.

  104. 104 : torri Says:

    i think this drama has a great story line , but god that girl who gave her child away is full of vernom , i mean what human being would do the things young j did she to me is way to heartless, and a complete bitch, it is true what they say that blood is thicker that water like mother like daughter , i dont get why most poeple who make comments here say they cryed i am at ep 18 now and am yet to cry i feel anger more for all the shit that crazy bitch young j did , i mean so far i want to pull her hair my self and drag her trough the mud , as for her mother she is nothing but a joke her self ,jung eun is what you call a fool as well , her kindness was way too much , the fact that she let self be used by her friend like that was just foolish and stupid , and to learn that she raise the child of a man she has loved since she was 14, makes it even more a mess, and some comments here say the guy did not realy like her well , i think if the guy did not actualy like her which to me so far i think he did beacuse so far i guess the guy finaly understands there is more to love that just sleeping togther which is what he misunderstood as love because when he finaly gets to see the realy person behind the face of the woman he believed he loved he just want to kill her , because she only went for the guy because she knew her best friend liked him and because he was rich , it was never because she loved him and if she did at any time love hime she would have found a way to forgive what ever misunderstanding she tought the guys family had to do with her been taken away from her mother , but she did not instead she throw the guys baby away but hey i still have 2 more ep to see but hey hung eun sure needs to be loved and taken care ok , to be honest i have watch a lot villian s in korean dramas but this villian here makes me so angry from start to finish

  105. 105 : comment Says:

    this one is now airing in my country. another one with “orphans” factor in it. most of the kdrama i’ve seen so far, not really many tho, has this plot where the child is separated from his/her biological father/mother thus created the conflict. kinda tiring somehow, this element of “disconnected” child. i agree with some comments here saying that the story does not really make sense, the way jung eun stayed with yoo kyung’s family, i.e. ae ri (yoo kyung’s mother), yoo kyung’s baby, incl ae ri’s family and then also young jo – yoo kyung’s bf (baby’s father), especially after ae ri’s found out everything and asked jung eun to leave to lead her own life, that time ae ri & the baby were already with ae ri’s family who took care of them. if jung eun stayed becos she wanted a family and had no career ambition but then she still doing casting and stuff..and there was not much going on between her and young jo either. young jo seemed to have no “passion ” for jung eun either, just like scenes among neighbors.. overall, quite uninteresting, flat, bland, insipid, humdrum….
    i wonder, if the cast is reversed, Han Hye Jin as Han Yo Kyung and Kim Min Jung as Seo Jung Eun.. wouldnt that, perhaps, give more color to this series? becos KMJung is perceived to be not as beautiful as HHJin and the role is that of suffering and a bit stupid in a way, hehe… in reality the ones who would likely to suffer more is those who look like KMJung rather than HHJin, in reality beautiful people tend to have it – relatively – easier (not all of course) so if you want to create a film that is closer to reality, neighborly every day things with no sparks and quite flat might as well do the cast closer to reality too and see how it goes…hehe… and perhaps people might not ‘curse’ as much on KMJung..hehe..

  108. 108 : Yoon Ji Says:

    I think that Han Yoo Kyung just has some mental issues like how can you treat your friend that way and leave her to take the blame? After all she did for her taking care of her child and mother? Then she just pops up out of no where and wants her family bac well what can I say you left them so you lose them that’s just it.

  109. 109 : Cris Says:

    This drama’s story line is so addictive. At first it seemed so boring but when the baby is was born the plot situation became so exciting. My mother also can’t stop watching this, when she came home at 9pm she watch this and slept at 2am. The end is just a bit hang up but the character’s acting are so powerful.

  110. 110 : Renee Says:

    I love this show. I watch the entire thing in 3 days. I am not to the next Korean Drama show now but a little sad that there are no more episodes. The Thorn Birds rock!

  111. 111 : Teddy Li Says:

    I have been enjoying The Thorn Birds UNTIL the part that Han Yoo Kyung registered Seo Jung Eun’s name (with Seo’s id) as Han’s unwanted newborn baby – in the hospital with Seo holding the baby!!!!! I know it is possible with identity theft these days. How could Seo let it happen while all parties were in the hospital with the nurse watching. The more ridiculous part was the hospital did not even ask for ids. The second ridiculous part was Seo did not expose Han, but at the meantime she reprimanded Han for the cruelty to abandon her own child and lay a bombshell on Seo. C’mon, just fix the record and walk away!!!!! Instead, Seo had the heart to listen to B.S. about Han’s sob story and let Han run away. Did the story writer trying to convince me this part of the plot?? I don’t think so!!!! Are we serious? The American soap operas might contain stories of betrayal and heartlessness, but plot like this does not convince me. I just stopping watching the rest of the drama and discarded the DVDs.

    Pls can anyone tell me wat happened in the last episode

  119. 119 : Jonathan Sykes Says:

    Kim Min Kyung who plays the evil friend gets a zero from me for acting and for looks. She has an interesting feature on her face. She has these really protruding eyes that make her unattractive. She has this skittering voice that reminds me of a snake when it hisses and she has this ego so bad that you want to punch her in the face and keep punching her.

  120. 120 : Jonathan Sykes Says:

    This is for all you people that made comments here. I have done a lot of reviews and I must say that I find this drama lacking in every way. I mean, when you create characters you need to put some kind of redeeming quality in most of them, otherwise, the story is a joke and not too realistic, in other words ridiculous. I find this story ridiculous. The characters are predictable and lacking and no one has changed over the years. The bitch from hell gets what she wants so we do not get our revenger for her or life does not give it to her which means that she gets away with murder. I find this drama annoying and fastidious.

  121. 121 : Donna Kim Says:

    Every time I see that bitch with the bug eyes Kim Min Jung is the actresses’ name, I want to puke. She looks perfect for the part because you want to hate her. Pretty? She is not pretty with those scary bug eyes that look like they are ready to come out of their sockets!

  122. 122 : Donna Kim Says:

    Why do these stupid Korean women have to wear short shorts in every drama? So they can show their skinny legs? Is that really office etiquette? I do not understand that Korean ” fashion” at all!!!

  123. 123 : Jin Chern Says:

    Can someone please tell me who is the singer of the beautiful song “My Everything”

  124. 124 : Lina Says:

    So much hate for the bitch from hell. I’d like to say to the producers, and writers of this show, you guy picked just the right girl for the part. Not only she looks evil, she acts evil…kudos for you people you did right by casting just the right person for the bitch part. She has huge buggy eyes that seems like her eyeballs about to fall off her face whenever she acts evil. She is one ugly girl. Her face is like a pumkin that is about to explode. ANd also, the office dress code in Korea, is this for real. Not only the hemlines are too short, but I saw backless too. What is wrong in this fashion office show, puhleeze, there should be a professional dress code somewhere in Asia we are not at the club or party. Therefore, make these women look presentable in the working areas. And for heavens sakes, make the storylines believable. Not only villlainese are winning in every episode, they take over the entire storyline and that is not real. Somehow, these evil characters should be disciplined soon enough and not wait to almost to the end of the drama. The show drags on with this drams because you guys let the evil girl takes over and let the good girl suffers for a long period of time….come one people, this is stupid…

  125. 125 : Lina Says:

    Kim Minjung’s face is really creepy….She is not nice to look at. She gives me the dark side of everything imagine. My goodness. Where did you guys get such an ugly froggy looking girl to play this part where she is so right for it. Her eyeballs alone makes me wince in fear she might just jump off the tv and bite me somewhere. eeeeeek…..You know, really, i tried to look at her I really did. I tryied to convince myself to accept her face but what makes it worse is when she talks, she spits out venom after acid after poison it is not pretty. Her face creeps me out throughout the entire time I was watching this show. it really became a burden to watch this show beause of her unpleasant features. So, scary and pure ugliness. Oh, and what’s with her girly fashion at the office. Is she at school or at work. Come one, a professional work place should look professional fashion wise. Make these women wear office attires not clubbing and party fashion . American soaps are so believable because they deal with all issues in a timely frame and not let one evil character takes over the entire show. Also, too much orphan issues. Are there any other place where the kids were raised instead of the orphans. It seems like every Korean dramas has the same issues. Why, no one was raised in other countries then came back to Korea and try to deal with a different culutre. I got really tired of this evil character she has no remorse. She has no brain to think of the level of damage she did to other people’s lives especially her friend whom she ruined in the process. What really got to me was she tried to act the victim and yet, no one is puting her in her place. She disgusts me so much it’s not funny.

    Love the thorn bird ,it’s fast moving ,not like some tv sitcom.there is just one thing ,not everybody’s nose runs like Han Hue Jins ,that was not attractive at all.she should have put her hand up by her nose. When she cry`ed I wouldn’t look .It’s still a great show,you cry and laugh ,and get mad than happy .Enjoy 100%.Donna Lee
