First of all, I’m not really a fan of melodrama. Initial reason to watch this is because Jo In Sung is the lead actor & this drama is a big hit in Korea during it’s airing.

The first few episode, I wonder if I can manage finish watching  this drama…haha. The initial setting of the drama: blind heroin with brain tumor history, have no one to be trust even her guardians and friend..such a lonely & pathetic character. But good thing that they also make the heroin someone rude with cold attitude.

So twist of fate, a guy pretended to be his dead friend in order to get inheritance to settle his debt. But somehow he actually not that bad guy, start to care for the girl and eventually fall in love with her. I love middle part of this drama. It’s interesting to the character and relationship development. How those villains is not that bad person, but just making bad mistake along the way.

Glad this drama is only 16 episode…hahaha. Melo drama should not be too long, or else it be draggy…lol. The ending is just so-so. They wanted to do some surprise element on last episode….no I don’t like that…it best if they just keep clean all the way….lol.

About the writer, Noh Hee Kyung. She is the same writer for It’s Okay, That’s Love; Padam Padam, Worlds Within, Goodbye Solo, Wonderful Days. Awesome resume ya…hehe. I say,her script is not bad. It’s realistic and make sense in their own way. Can’t really remember Worlds Within, but with It’s Okay, That’s Love; I say this writer improved a lot.

Should I recommend this drama? Only if you can stand melo drama…hehe.
