not up to the Japanese version
23 December 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

terrific performance by the lead actress. A reviewer on DVD beaver said she was a cross between Stan laurel, and Guelita Masina. She does smile like Stan Laurel okay. Not too many scenes that brought a tear. I smiled more and cried. The level of violence in it caught me by surprise. Maybe it was the title that threw me. But then again I should have been prepared, when the series starts with an attempted suicide. I would describe as as a show about love, friendship, and the possible sacrifice of one's own happiness for a friends. There is friendship between women, friendship between men, even if it sometimes leads to jealousy and violence, and friendship between mem and women ie f4 and Jan Di. Overall it;'s a series I admired more than liked, particularly for the lead actress. The rest of the cast are OK, but no real standouts acting wise. I do wonder why only 3 of the f4 members were given decent story lines. Perhaps in the Japanese and/or korean version, we get to find out more about the gangsters son.
