    This was slow at first then it became a bit better then it ended really dumb. Sadly since I loved the cast this was a horrible dissappointment to watch.

    Valid Love, written by Kim Do-Woo and directed by Han Ji-Seung, is a story of complexity and contradiction that is only within the realm of human condition. The story is deeply intelligent, demanding employment of our psyche, to understand the feelings of each of the main character reasoning of the characters which is no simple matter.

    The title “Valid Love” simply tells the story. Rii Rae, a devoted and faithful wife who deeply loves her husband, one day encounters Joon and feelings surface she has never known. Joon one day saves her life and cannot let her go and (secretly) contrives to hold on to her. Thus, Rii’s husband becomes cruel in his anger and overwhelming in his fury, unable to hear her pleas for forgiveness.

    After the divorce, Joon reappears to Rii and they begin to date. Joon wants Rii to move far away and begin a family with him, because he no longer wants to live alone. When she refuses, he becomes very angry and asks her why he continues to make him anxious and won’t end it with Hee Tae. He then realizes and asks was it fun playing with me. It was not fun for him and he ends their relationship. first.

    Rii, caught between both loves, is barely able to carry on, but regains her resolve to live on as best she can. To the dismay of many reviewers, Ms. Kim scripted a wonderfully reasonable ending for each character who were in anguish in many earlier episodes, but came full circle to recognize and accept the human condition.
