Maple This is so good! I love this drama very much! Love han hyo joo^^

Shomon As always Lee Seung Gi is the Best.. :D

nentelly Thank you for this drama. lee seunggi and han hyo joo chemistry is the best

kitalqy really am in love with lee seung ki

dadz . . this is my 25th best drama Ive seen so far. .out of 175

HopesDD An amazing classic, totally love it no matter how much I watch it. A story that looks boring but attract you and warm your heart with its smart script. Seriously, it's GOLD.

love I'm watching Brilliant Legacy Right now and I fall in love with Hwan again and again ... SEUNG GI OPPA I LOVE YOU cute baby Hope your eye recovers soon and I see you smiling and healthy again my love ...

Thilini v. Does anybody noticed that in Brilliant Legacy,from the begining on, both Hwan-Sung wore same colour and same type clothes like a true couple,I think Go Eung Sung even wore Sun Woo Hwangs own clothes few times, how romantic :-D

Thilini v I lost count of how many times I've watched BL,great plot, brilliant acting,my all time fav.num.1 K drama,Seung-Joo (Hwan-Sung) is most probably the reason of my BL addiction,Seung-Joo forever!please do another project together,I'll never get tired of watching you both together!

Ozmo @elis - Getting drama confused with real life??? Yoona isn't in this drama. She and Seung-Gi love each other in the real world, so whether you like her is irrelevant.

elis does sueng gi likes hhj or the other way around?if they do,why arent they together..i dont like yoona

Clarkdale44 Well a nice change of pace... I liked the story and it was entertaining. Casting was superb, both Han Hyo-Joo and Lee Seung-Ki performed their best. But i feel as chemistry between two leads was somewhat weak, don't know if its only me who felt that way. Although the story sequence was alright i felt as it was being dragged unnecessarily. Anyway in the end all worked out good. I enjoyed it.

WARNING:- Don't read further if you have yet to watch this drama:- Although the story is entertaining, you will feel frustrated and angry because of such mother, yeah i am quite familiar with stepmothers in dramas who throws out the children from first marriage in such situations but what she did was beyond explanation. Throughout the entire drama i felt so annoyed by the character of Paek Seong-Hee and even her daughter Yu Seung-Mi that was i about to go crazy. I felt as she was crazy and had some sort of mental problem. I don't think she plans give up in the end if it wasn't for Eun-Seong's father, who threatened her that he will turn himself in. If i talk about supporting cast, i feel sorry for Park Jun-Se, he helped Eun-Seong throughout the series since the beginning and yet his heart was crushed in the end. I still don't understand this feeling called love. He helped her so many times and even helped her father, its hard to believe that she didn't felt anything for him. Also Eun-Seong didn't had the slightest idea that her father was alive and looking for her, she wouldn't even have been able to meet her father if it wasn't for Jun-Se. Well he knew the meaning of loving someone, he must have thought her happiness lies with Hwan, so he gave up. On the other hand i don't feel any bad for Yu Seung-Mi, she got what she deserved. I liked the happy ending. But Eun-Seong could have been announced as future heir of the company. Anyway i liked the character of Grandmother, she saw in Eun-Seong's kindness and pure heart, it was a right decision to make her future successor of the company, although she declined it in the end. 28 episodes was bit too much depending on the story progress, story was being dragged for no reason in the middle of the series. Anyway i enjoyed this drama very much and i will recommend it to all.

I will give it 9.5/10(For great casting, great story, great cinematography)

T My most favourite Korean drama so far,love everything about this drama,specally the chemistry between Seung Gi-Hyo Joo,Hwan-Sung forever! <3

Tum Im gonna watch this film coz there is yeon jun sul oppa♥

micha love it! exciting!

micha Love can really change anything, i mean for the better..i love the story..i love the cast esp LSG!

hot-summer I really love BL plot and I addicted to GO EUN SUNG and HWAN love story so much!

JayKemz I have a bone to pick with the directors of this k-drama: Why did they have to force the main actress to fall in love with a spoilt brat over a perfectly nice guy??? AFTER i BECAME AWARE OF THESE DEVELOPMENTS I just stopped watching it...SO ANNOYED!!!!!

AP 09 Brilliant Legacy, Amazing Drama.... Like it so much

Sameh I have seen dramas from many different places and in many different languages. Without a doubt this one is the best I have ever seen! Every moment of this drama was filled with so much passion and emotion. The music only added to the experience. Every aspect of it was simply brilliant! A fitting name for such a drama.

Gasenadi I was grateful for the later story of worker/shareholders organizing to save their company; a small, business run by a single mom (Grandma, wonderful actress Ban Hyo Jeong) who never forgot that the company was not hers, but the workers', and preferred small success to corporate greed. I haven't gotten to the resolution of that conflict with the Board and Lawyer Park. But just that inclusion of workers giving what little they had to maintain their company's identity was surprising enough. Kim Mi Suk as Evil Stepmom portrays an intriguing and "cool" villain. She's no irrational, screeching banchee, but an elegant, detached lady convinced she's just acting with common sense to insure her daughter's future (Moon Chae Won never disappoints me!) Predictable, INFURIATING romance just proves love is deaf, dumb, blind, insane and sick.

Rushell Lewis I just love this movie.... All my years on earth this is the best written movie ever. The writer is brilliant, and not to mention the brilliant actors.... Hwan I love you so much babes..... <3 you and Ensung belong together

shy_hyo Extremely love this drama, it's awesome!!!! LSG-HHJ couple is a BRILLIANT couple, hope they are meant to be^^

fiona they are meant to be the producer should put them acting together more often=)

fiona other than this did they act together on other dramas?

eni i like2....

Miracle I wonder is this drama better than You're Beautiful? Is it worthy if i buy DVD of Brilliant Legacy? Cuz i've watched You're Beautiful in DVD recently & was considering it as the best drama of 2009.


HwanSungLovers What an amazing drama !! Totally love every minute of the drama although i was rewatch it for the 10 times (or 11?) .LOL. It is the 1st drama which make me so crazy like this . . Love every HwanSung moment, from being an enemy until they are become a couple. .also, Hwan's transformation make me so proud w/ him. .how adorable and funny he is. . . And Eun Sung, she make me sooo envy. . Hehew. . So proud with this drama (and the casts and crews of course) bcz although 2 year passed by, it still get some awards from overseas. . (applause)

  • sorry for the bad english :)

momo Great Family Drama! Best drama of 2010! but why the ratings aren't shown here. this one got rated 1st in almost every episodes. Even though most of the dramas from the mid 90s has many higher ratings but I think, this drama comes in Top 10 in All-time Korean drama history.

Jane I love this drama and I really hope I didn't miss your last episode on Sunday 8/30/09. Please let me know if it will be replayed. NYC time warner cable channel 531.

cRUELLA dE vILLE I really like Eun-seong's character. I think Han HyoJu and Lee SeungKi did a great job, I'd love to give them an acting award. I fell for Bae SuBin during the first few episodes. His character is so compassionate. Mun ChaeWon, won't be left unoticed, she's good. And I'm happy that she'll be appearing yet in another drama (MFL). It is worth watching and "Highly recommended".

Leslee This is the 2nd best drama I have ever seen, and I have seen a lot. It had a GREAT first kiss scene, and the ending was perfect, absolutely perfect. There were no loose ends, the romance unfolded perfectly, and...oh, I could go on forever. You should just watch it yourself.
