One of the best Kdramas in 2020! Not surprised it broke Channel A’s rating records and managed to compete against the local channels. Non-stop thrills from the first episode all the way to the end. The story was addicting, the twists were shocking and the family scenes were both heartbreaking and beautiful.
There were so many memorable characters too. I loved Ji Min so much!! He is handsome, good father, a little bit corny when it comes to romance but so endearing. He protected both Woojoo and Eunsu and did not stop until he exposed Chairman Kim for the evil person that she was! Eunsu was so lucky to have found someone willing like Ji Min. Chairman Kim is the worst evil mom in law I’ve seen this year! But that had a twist and it also explained her actions and behavior. I still dont have any sympathy for her though. I loved Woo Joo – she reminds me so much of a younger Kim Yoo Jung!
There were no filler episodes, every scene was jampacked with details and information. The soundtrack was on point. I thought that classical music BGM from AWOTM was scary but every time I hear that violin sounds in this drama, I just know something bad will happen to Eunsu 🤣
The weakest link is Semi. She was annoying for the most part of the show, doing nothing but put her anger and blame on Eunsu without taking a look at herself and reflecting on her mistakes.
Lessons learned – hell hath no fury like a “mother” scorned 😁 The lengths parents go to to protect their family. And even at your darkest point, you can get up and move forward, and find someone who will accept and love you as you are 🥰
“The fact that I was by your side and by Woo Joo’s side feels like a miracle in itself to me.”
“The light is so small but it’s bright. Even if the light goes off, this moment will remain in your memory forever. It will stay in your heart all the time. I will engrave you whom i’ve never forgotten even to the last line of my life.”
