    yes, i agree to some here, this drama is great! maybe it depends on one’s definition of what is boring, but if one listens to the dialogues and observe the development of the characters, it really is not boring. 😀

    also started to watch this because of secret garden. hyun bin looks better here. 😀 hah, i cant believe this was way back in 2008. ;p

    yes… Hyun Bin looks gorgeous in this drama. the couple is sooo natural, specially in showing their love for each other. as i read some article that in this drama they 1st meet but as you watch the movie as if they already know each other way back… SOUL MATE… i hope the production of this drama will do a part 2 and same lead star…

    just like everyone here, i watch this coz of secret graden (Hyun Bin). more shock that the leading lady was Song Hye Kyo of Autumn in my Heart (popular here in the Philippines). Hyun Bin and Song Hye Kyo cant believe that in this movie its their 1st meeting because they act so naturally. they have this chemistry and resemblance. a perfect couple! im also waiting for their come back movie together… Good Luck! fight

    i really really love this drama… i watch this over & over cuz im so kilig with ji oh & joon young… their lines are so meaningful… two thumbs up to the writer Noh Hee Kyung and to the directors Pyo Min Soo & Kim Kyu Tae you guys really did a great job so with the whole cast. I wish that Hye Kyo & Hyun Bin will do another series (after his military service). I love both of you, you really inspire me and you’re a handsome couple – off & on screen

    This drama depicts the reality of shooting a real drama…the actual people behind and infront of the camera…how hard they work…and how limited time they have to sleep each day.

    Love Song Hye kyo. I watched all your drama series. Full house introduced me to the korean drama but I like also “that winter the wind blows”.
    I hope you reconcile with HYUN Bin. Looking forward to your next drama, possibly with RAin after he discharged from his military service?
    Thank you for beautifully existing inisde and out.

    Just got done watching THE WORLD THAT THEY LIVE IN for the second time. It gave me a peak at what some of hurdles the actors, directors, asst. directors, and others face in order to make a drama. I think all the actors did a commendable job especially Song Hye-kyo and Hyun Bin. Thank you all.
