Well, I can say it's interesting. I don't hate it, but it didn't leave that big of a impression on me. It almost felt like the drama was a bundle of typical korean sceens, and yet no solid ground. It had all classics; the confessions on the phone when drunk, the supporting actor being selfish and demanding the girl, the girl constantly loosing faith in the lead actor, the supporting lady is a bitch, and not to mention the typical story with the head of the family disagreeing to the realtionship. AND STILL, it didn't cut it for me. The actors were really good, and even though I dislike Lee Da Hae, it didn't matter, since she did good acting. BUT, the story was either too short, or too muddled, I really can't make up my mind. Even when writing the resume, I was thinking "WHAT really happened".. But it does get your attention, and you do wanna know what's going to happened. So have fun, and make up your own mind around this one, because it left me clueless..
