  14. 14 : Males Man Says:

    BO GEUM (FIST)…..

  15. 15 : Ttuk Says:

    I watched 4 episodes hoping it would hook me in, but it didn’t. Wonderful cast, lack-lustre script. Perhaps it will get better who knows.

  16. 16 : Ttuk Says:

    Hah! Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

  17. 17 : annmasae Says:

    Enjoying this drama on dramafever. wish more people would watch it.
    Interesting to see how a spoiled rich girl matures and becomes more responsible when she thinks her family has lost their fortune.

  18. 18 : sylvia Says:

    this drama the more eps the more interesting……………
    what a pity that the rating so low……………

  19. 19 : ollie Says:

    we really enjoy watching your drama series every Saturday and Sunday….that’s why we’re all exciting for the weekend

  20. 20 : Nudge Says:

    The subtitles are really slow coming, but the drama is fun.
    It kept me interested even though each episode now is mostly a string of contrived plots. LOL.

  21. 21 : Nudge Says:

    Trading the whereabouts of a missing child is reprehensible behaviour. Preventing a mother from uniting with her child is beyond the scope of my imagining, even when there’s a logical explanation. Such a thing as the relationship between a child a parent transcends logic, it is sacred. And no-one should mess with it.

    So does this sort of a thing really ever happen in South Korea I wonder?

  22. 22 : Ttuk Says:

    Oh man the whole mystery birth thing became even more bizzare. It’s like poking at poo with a stick. This writer just can’t help himself/herself.

    Oh dear me, this drama keeps sinking like the ill-fated Titanic.

    What a waste of good actors.

  23. 23 : John k Says:

    This is a stupid drama. It’s about incest,it gets worst every week because the dumb ass writer can’t make up his or her damn mind. This is a sick drama. 50 episodes was too much for the idiot writer so he or she had to make up dumb episodes that makes no sense. This is why their ratings are low and getting canceled. I want my fucken time and money back!!!!!!!

  24. 24 : Sunny Says:

    This is going to be only up to Episode 48. Why? I guess the writer ran out of words to make this drama End!
    Now do anyone know who is the Son she is looking for? ‘m getting very confuse of who son is who?

  25. 25 : torri Says:

    this a very good drama there are a lot of things to learn from this drama when i saw the ratings at first i was not really going to watch the drama but my good elderly Korean lady that owns a convenient store by my office that i go to every day encourage me to watch she and i chart on all the dramas we are both watching and because of her am able practice my Korean little by little and she is very kind and am glad i was able to watch this drama its good for the family , so for all those who are reluctant don’t be when u get the chance watch the drama ok guys

  26. 26 : Love Says:

    I watch this drama from Day 1, since it started. I have enjoy this drama, until the mystery began when Yoon Bok Hee looking for son that was taking away from her. Why oh Why! Choi Eun Ok keeping the secret to herself! OMG! she is been soooo Terrible not revealing who is the son of Yoon Bok Hee!
    It so Amazing how the writers for drama always give the evil up the upper hand to do everything in their power to hide and do evil things!
    Do anyone know who is her real first son? I thought it would have been the doctor.
    I saw Episode 47 and 48, But (RAW) I could not make heads or tail on the out come. Help Please?

  27. 27 : Love Says:

    Great surprise on episode 47 & 48. Not Bad ending, but great drama story line.

  28. 28 : Yuni Says:

    I am watching this drama until episode 9 and still enjoy it.
    Funny and good.
    I like it a lot…

  29. 29 : Santie Says:

    One of the best drama…

  30. 30 : Megumi Says:

    The end a bit dangling it did not say did bok hee meet her real son…… Sigh not complete picture yet ……quite strange for the erter to end it here

  31. 31 : Yuni Says:

  32. 32 : dayana Says:

    Great family drama very touching esp relationship wonderful mama and three hilarious children….We must appreciate and love our mother forever and ever.Period.

  33. 33 : Liz Says:

    Another drama full of craps. Each episode has too many flashback scenes & unfunny comedy. This drama has same level as drama with episodes more than 100

  34. 34 : Asoka Says:

    Does anyone know the song from ep 26 when Young Chae meet with Hoon Nam after she found out that she still rich? The one when the both alone at the park. Please..
