I read reviews for this series extensively before I started to watch.I only got positive reviews. By then, I was also a fan of lead actors (The Classic, Marriage is a crazy thing). What captivates is the narration. Director and the script writer have done excellent work with crisp editing. Actors are brilliant in bringing their natural strength to the characters. Many reviews say one common thing - silence speaks in this story. If you are not a person who can appreciate that, then it is not for you.
My favorite scenes are mostly the reminiscing parts from the lead characters. Their ache of missing each other, yet their ego and insecurity that stops them from taking that step forward towards each other.
Supporting characters are well sketched and have a purpose. They build the characters we come to appreciate as they make up for the dialogue bit, mostly. Story moves on quietly. Music is also quiet, but stays with you long after you finish watching the series. Miss Ye Jin is a natural and considering her natural age at the time of this character portrayal, she has shown a lot of maturity. Award for her in this category was well deserved.
Since my review comes late and probably wont add much to what has already been written about this story, I will conclude by strongly recommending this to any viewer interested in melodrama.
