  10. 10 : 7sax Says:

    Who is the main leading actor????

  11. 11 : Yvonne Says:

    I hope this is a different drama. They use this too much. A LOT of dramas have this kind of plot. A woman getting revenge – because people are so mean to her. Innocent woman becoming a femme fetale. CLICHÉ.
    Better be different. I beg you!

  12. 12 : Bebe Says:

    i like the main actress and i love her in bride of the sun. will watch this one too. but i have to wait until it comes out more eps.

  13. 13 : ohohlalayoyo Says:

    i hope this drama have different plot like Yvonne Said, if it used the same plot i don think gonna get a high rating!

  14. 14 : sennett Says:

  15. 15 : tigerb Says:

    how come there are no ratings?

  16. 16 : vodka Says:

    where to watch this drama with subtitles?

  17. 17 : kimnic Says:

    its already aired on feb 4 but why the video isnt available yet. is it blocked?

  18. 18 : rebelgirl 23 Says:

    where can i watch this drama?

  19. 19 : aznative Says:

    You can watch on MVIBO but have to pay a monthly subscription rate. MVIBO has 19 35min episodes available but only three (as of 28Feb2013) with English subtitles. I haven’t watched just posting for general information purposes.

  20. 20 : haye Says:

    i cant find the video elsewhere, is there anyone knows where to watch this for free

  21. 21 : Almonda Says:

    I have just watched the first 20 episodes and am enjoying this drama a lot.
    It is much for straightforward than previous revenge dramas, there were no endless and annoying scenes were you couldn´t believe the female leads stupidity. I really hope that this drama will continue this way.
    What I am not really sure about is whether Park Nam Joon will be Jun Se Mi´s love interest or if there won´t be one..normally the love interest is right behind the female lead in the actors list,,but here it mentions Kang Hyuk Min..or will she fall for the guy who tried to kill her? O_O

  23. 23 : Hanako Says:

    Never like long episodes even though how good they are..even 50 episodes I have to think twice to watch it. Takes more patience in watching long and dragging dramas, Good Luck to all who watch this drama!

  24. 24 : TheOne Says:

    does anyone know where i can watch this?

  25. 25 : mml Says:

    @24 TheOne,
    you can watch at China website under Letv

  26. 26 : mml Says:

    I have finished watching episode 1 to 21 , at the moment it is still a mystery to me, although it is a melodrama, it is quite interesting to watch this drama.
    I’m curious about how Jang Shin Young, has the ability to breakthrough her obstacles to win her revenge.

    This is my first time watching JTBC drama, am curious about this drama, although, i seldom want to watch melodrama, this melodrama, the plot is very different, that’s why i will watch,
    i hope that it will be a good happy ending.

    Okay, will continue to watch episode 22 .

  27. 27 : samia Says:

  30. 30 : Rina Says:

    i watch this on mvibo but you need to have a premium account to see this show !! There is a website where you can watch it for free but there is no sub: http://www.jebangsong.com/bbs/board.php?bo_table=2013Drama8&wr_id=2&page=4#.UcTkXPlWzlN

  31. 31 : jangerr Says:

    A surprisingly good watch! I’ve been intrigued and is marathoning it since I stumbled on it a few days ago. I’m now at episode 47!

  32. 32 : kriss Says:

    It’s interesting. It’s exciting. It’s compelling. Each episode ends with sufficient tension and plot movement to keep you on the edge and wanting more.

  33. 33 : nedley Says:

    -______- its really awesome how people keep telling is that they are watching the episodes but fail to offer a website so others may. @rina thanks for the information, but i rather not pay.

  34. 34 : kriss Says:

    This is such a good drama. It’s a real pity there’s no english subs available, at least not that I’m aware of. I suppose that’s why not many people seem to be watching it. Hopefully someone will start subbing it…

  35. 35 : kriss Says:

    @33 nedley

    If you understand chinese, you can watch this drama at meiku.com.

  36. 36 : al Says:

  41. 41 : mariaodessa Says:

    I Super duper really like this drama so much 🙂

  42. 42 : mariaodessa Says:

    i love the ending..It’s an Explosive Blast from the past…I must say History repeat itself….It’s Worth Watching ^_^

  43. 43 : sk8 Says:

    First i would say if i knew this is a 100+ over episodes, i wouldn’t have watched it in the first place… Nonetheless… unknowingly, i watched it from ep. 1 and feel i have to continue… but i’ve to say… it keeps me engaged all the time… that i watched all the episodes :p… the lead actress’s and KJM ‘s pretty faces and attires is another factor that is keeping me :p … recommended!~ if you don’t mind the long episodes that is… lol

  44. 44 : sk8 Says:


    if you understand chinese, there are actually heaps of websites that you can watch all the korean dramas… foc… otherwise, i knew this website which is english sub… azdrama.net… but probably they change to http://azdrama.sx/?

    head on there… they’ve some latest korean dramas too… i don’t watch mine from there tho :p
