K-drama Feels:
  • If you like usual melodrama you’ll like this.
  • There are some nice, funny and romantic scenes.
  • In terms of the story, I was fine with it. Nothing spectacular, but I liked the backstory and how the story progressed.
  • Kim Woo Bin – His acting was very emotional and he was very pleasant to look at.
  • Bae Suzy – I wasn’t impressed with her acting. She was the show killer for me, maybe because of her blank expression and shallow dialogue delivery.
  • No kilig factor for the main leads.
  • Soundtrack was great. (A Little Braver and Across The Ocean by New Empire)
  • Heart-breaking Scene : When Joon Young looks up with tears in his eyes, and apologizes for not recognizing her mother. Tumulo luha ko dito.
  • For those who love Kim Woo Bin, you can watch this drama. He shines like the brightest in this drama.

My Rating – 7.5/10 (A mix of tears and laughter.)
