sunny OMG I'm chocked after this drama. keep missing it since it's hard to find a masterpiece like this... -.- One of the Best K drama!!! I regret giving up on this drama after a few episodes even though I like KJW a lot since the opening scared me and first few episodes broke my heart. Since KJW doesn't come up with a new project and the drama seems to be popular, I continued watching it after a year or so. gosh it ripped my heart apart so many times. But it's such a beautiful drama. totally Recommend it. The best drama of Kim Jae Won ever!!! Love KJW <3

Amy I'm now not sure the place you're getting your information, however good topic. I needs to spend some time learning more or understanding more. Thank you for magnificent info I was in search of this information for my mission.

GG Deser I am wondering if there is some reason why the colors yellow and blue are so predominant throughtout this whole series. At first I thought it was a quirk but after watching 17 episodes so far I believe that there are hundreds of scenes where these two colors are either put together deliberately (i.e., police cars, children's outfits and accessories, logos on businesses, business cards, notebooks and signs, etc.). I would love to know if the director did this deliberately or not. Also are these colors of any significance to Koreans in general? I am NOT Asian so not familiar with any traditional color choices but truthfully I love the combination of these two colors which is why I noticed in the first place. Thanks for any answers anyone provides.

Additionally, I LOVE this show and am a huge fan of.K-dramas, starting with the sageuks and now working my way through many of the contemporary dramas. Love every one I have seen and seriously a fan of all the actors/actresses, directors, and hope to see many more in the future.

Li_dhawnjja the story was really interesting,, I appreciate how the characters managed the twists in every situation,., i am also very very much glad that they chose my favorite song exo's growl to be part of the story even if it was like a short part of the song,., i even suggested it to my friend saying that they should watch it,. anyways, i really enjoyed it very much,., congratulations to all of those who made such a wonderful movie.,. <3

Gage Ha Myung-Geun to me was even worse than Tae-ha. 1. He kidnapped a boy and ultimately almost gets killed by his real father. 2. He involved a soon to be husband and father In a situation that gets him killed. 3. He almost gets yoon-hee killed but her baby dies. so much more on his fault.

sara I am sad it finished.the story the acting the casting everything were great.the best epi was 23 when eunjoong was leaving his father very impressing very great

Bboo One of the best . Love KJW. He is very charming and love his natural acting skills. good cast member too.

Anne This is a very awesome drama. One of the best korean drama i've ever watched. The relationship between father and son its very touching makes me cry a lot. Sarangheyoo Kim Jae Won❤️❤️❤️

kamutehqu this drama is so heart-wrenching and yet heart-warming at the same time.. one of those drama that leave mark in our hearts.. in every episode new things keep coming out... very good plot.. i personally loved ha myeung geun's character.. the ending was just amazing.. even in the finale is really heart warming..

JC This drama was so good I really enjoyed the storyline! The pitiful victim turns into the "bad guy" in a split moment of confusion and sets the tragedy in motion. Loved how it wasn't too drawn out and the secrets began to spill fairly early, very thrilling and tense. The story had the East of Eden x Feast of the Gods ironic family tragedy feel to it which I found really awesome.

dadz . . . .anyeong haseo! at first i feel disappointed because of the casting of this drama, its seems like its not a perfect blending, but it keeps me watching it and i can't resist it. it became more and more exciting . . . .if im going to rate it , im going to give 95 percent . . . . . .congratulations . . . kim jae won and joo yoon hee

c_u_t_e_13 OMG!!! Every episode is breath taking , full of suspense and every episode is revealing, one after the other...unexpected and it will leave you craving for more...WOW
