  2. 2 : Stick War Games Says:

    im waiting…just think like noble, my love…

  3. 3 : Mai Tuong Says:

    I really wanna try this one out because of Kim Joo Hyun. Who will pair with her as love interest, anyone know?

  4. 4 : aznative Says:

    Check the link to see if “Unni Is Alive” is available in your region.


  5. 5 : Oleazo Says:

    What a show? 1 hr staring at the drama and wth? I don’t know what is going on there? The three complicated women hard to predict and look like no connections with each others but already given me a shock accident. I don’t think I should continue to waste my times to watch this drama. There are a lot of good dramas at the same times on air.

  6. 6 : Windsun33 Says:

    Watched first two episodes – This is a throwback to the total over the top ridiculous makjang plots of a few years ago. I may watch more just because all the plot holes and stupidity are kind of like SNL.

  7. 7 : Adagio Says:

    This one is not stitched together well. Too much going on but little to hold my interest.

  8. 8 : Galuh Says:

    I like the story. Love love love. Min deul lee, kang ha ri, and eun hyang. Especialy min deul lee and goo pil mo, love both of you…

  9. 9 : instagram online Says:

    The poster looks very good. Hope Dasom will succeed with her new drama. Thank you for sharing the information.

  10. 10 : Winifreda tiu Says:

    Very nice drama. Cant wait for the next episode. Have to wait for another week for new episode. It always makes me thrill at the end of each episode. Just like watching “prison break season 1” , end of each episode always left you hanging. A must watch korean drama for all korean drama lovers. Hated the most is the role of dal hee. Not a good actress, over-acting, the evil and the ugliest woman in the drama. ( SORRY DAL HEE)

  11. 11 : OK OK OK Says:

    wow good ratings. I am going to watch 😛

  12. 12 : Fatom Says:

    Why I found all this drama which got good ratings are the worst and boring drama? This drama, all the casts cannot act, very weird and crazy storyline but what I like is the good ones fight with the bad ones and their stupid revenges at all times with each others, that’s all.

  13. 13 : Sassysora Says:

    very fun and can’t wait to see next episode. This drama is good storyline. At the first i don’t like all the casts but i heard that this drama is very famous in Korean so i decide to watched it then i love all characters.

  14. 14 : gg Says:

    go go go !!! fighting !!

  15. 15 : Ninjalamb Says:

    Oh my goodness what a great finale, story is very touching and heart wrenching but everything comes to a good closure. The evil characters are totally wipe out although in real life the situation may not be the way it is written but the whole drama has been well written. Well done to the cast, they have done a tremendous job in portraying the characters. A great watch and ending.
