Review
This is easily one of my top dramas for 2020! Everything about the drama was beautiful!! The three leads were so terrific and their chemistry worked so well. There was a seamless transition between Woo Young and Dae Young, it really felt like they were the same people. Kim Haneul is gorgeous as always.

Just see the main cast! I put almost everyone in the list because everyone, including the supporting characters had their own stories and it didn’t bog down the story. In fact, it added to the richness of this drama. There were so many side stories going on and almost everyone’s stories had closure.

The love the wonderful and heartbreaking journey of Dajung and Dae Young. They got married young, they had regrets, they broke up. But in the end, they found their way back to each other. It’s rare to be able to hold on to your first love. It’s normal that things may not always be happy. So many people would have given up just like them. But still there are some where the love is so great that they are able (and willing) to work it out, be honest with each other and love more.

The visuals!! 🥰 all the guys were handsome and the girls were pretty! I loved the baby love triangle between Ji Ho, Si ah and Jasung.

Perfect balance of laughter and tears. My favorite storyline was of Dae Young and his dad and the sign language scene 😭.

And when Sia finally called up Dae Young to tell him she misses her dad.

I wish there were more scenes between the twins. They dont seem to be close and they don’t talk to each other.

I also loved Dae Young’s relationships with Siwoo and Sia. He really matured alot when he had the chance to be their classmate and friend.

How sweet Dae Young is to Dajung’s mom.

I love the friendship between Dae Young and Deok Jin, Dajung and Aerin. And all four of them together! But absolutely love Aerin and i want to have a best friend like her!

The cinematography was so pretty too. And the OST. Im sad they didnt release the OST album coz i really wanted to get my copy.

I did feel bad for Ji Hoon. Without Dae Young, i would not have minded if Dajung ended up with him. But Jihoon didn’t have a chance because Dajung never liked him more than as friends.

So many life lessons about dreams, family, marriage and relationships.

“There are days when we hated each other. But thanks to that, we understand each other better. We learn to appreciate each other more. And we love more. There were more days when we were happier. For that happiness, we decided to love our decisions . We chose people based on love. And we are grateful for our decisions.”

“In life, even if you miss out on happiness, as long as you have that one person who will look for happiness with you, your life will be worth living. Dont forget that you love each other. Be disappointed that you cannot cherish each other better. And promise for a better tomorrow. Just like that, our lives will continue.”

Rating: 9.5/10

If you can’t get enough of the leads, then watch Men on a Mission episode where they guested to promote their drama.
