  6. 6 : Maria DeCastro Says:

    Fantastic opening!!! Slow but interesting…. cinematography is amazing…

  7. 7 : Jenna Luen Says:

    I seldom leave reviews and comments. This is such a beautiful story line.

    Intense emotions, regrets, anger, loneliness, helplessness. The Yoo Ji Tae and Lee Bo Young did such a wonderful and excellent portray of the characters. My emotions were just suck into their acting.

    The drama wouldn’t be successful without such great acting skills.

  8. 8 : Mar05 Says:

    Just four episodes has aired, and for the time being, this drama already stirred up my emotions. Thanks to the picturesque cinematography, intense emotions, and beautiful potrayal of the characters by the actors/ actresses.

    I’d wonder why this drama hasn’t watched by many viewers in South Korea (beside the fact that this drama aired by cable TV, which has less viewers than public TV). Is it because of the drama’s theme is predictable enough? or not interesting enough to watch?? There might be many reasons, and every people (viewer) has every right to choose what they want to watch. But, as a viewer, the only sentence that I want to say: “Go deeper if you want to know more,”

  9. 9 : Soulbar Says:

    The flashback is annoying & taking too much screentime from BoYiung & Jitae. The drama is too slow, at times I got bored. Am staying cos really like the 2 leads esp BoYoung.

  10. 10 : Thazin Says:

    This drama series are very good. So touching my heart. Every time I watch, it makes me cry.

  11. 11 : albino decastro Says:

    Oh my… my heart is breaking

  12. 12 : Tira Says:

    Really touching drama! Love the main actor and actress……
    Quite heart breaking………..

  13. 13 : Ling Says:

    Promising first episode beautifully filmed.
    Leads Lee bo young and Yoo ji Tae, emotions so rich and deep. A long while since there’s a drama like this. And isn’t it wonderful, such a fine specimen of a man who cries so easily : ) and is still so manly.

    So much experience between the two leads, surely if the writers don’t mess up, this should be good.

  14. 14 : Ling Says:

    The flash backs are interfering.

    Go woo rim as bo young’s son, is brilliant.

  15. 15 : Ling Says:

    Is it possible to watch this drama without the flashbacks? A resounding YES!!!

  16. 16 : Ling Says:

    Wonderful! Lee bo young back to form : )

  17. 17 : tigerb Says:

    a happy ending as expected. the young love was better to watch than the adult version. the adult ji su was always walking so slow, like she was always walking in the park, i fell sleepy in those scenes, but all in all it’s fine to watch.

  18. 18 : pocahontas11 Says:

    Lee Bo Young so beautiful.. one of my favorite

  19. 19 : Ling Says:

    Mid way, steam runs out. Script becomes repetitive and draggy. Pity

  20. 20 : Shirohana Says:

    Very touching story I should say. I love the both the main characters young and old. It’s full of compassion and love but also there is hatred and revenge. Like always the ending is not exciting like many other Korean dramas
