Let me start off that this was a typical Korean drama. After episode 9, after slugging away my emotions to pulp and hating the characher Chae Young to wishing for her death, I had to skip to the last episode. And you know what? I didn't miss a single thing. I didn't see the trauma of the love quadrangle the show was working on. I didn't see the start of Shin Bi's illness which would have been torture beyong belief.

What I did see? I saw the end of the quadrangle and the start of the loving relationship of Se-jin and Seung-wan. I didn't see a death. I didn't see the family fight over Shin Bi. Let's put it this way.......from episode 10-15 was the same old, same old dragged out till you bleed drama. So in other words, there really wasn't any movement in the show. I might have missed some things which I might go back and see what I missed but for now....I wish the Korean drama figures would get a brain like the Japanese and just get to the gist of the story and move on.

On the whole.....the movie started out wonderfully and ended wonderfully. A very good drama but typically sluggish and emotionally draining.

Would I see it again? Probably so.....give me few more months when I get bored and am looking to watch some reruns..................
