OMG!!! I was sure this was going to be another sappy drama with a triangle love story but no! There are so many other secrets and things going on twisted into this story. I have to say, this drama has brought out a lot of the better aspects of these actors/actresses. While everything isn’t real, I genuinely wait for the next episode. There’s only 3 more (supposedly, hopefully not) and I’m still not sure how they are going to wrap it up. I know the end, just the not the means. Lee Jong-Suk and Park Shin-Hye are great actors (within the Korean drama field, I’m not sure how they’d fare in Hollywood…). I can’t wait to see what they do in the future.
For anyone who needs the synopsis:
Ki Ha Myeong (Lee Jong-Suk) grows up with his father, mother, and older brother. His father (a firefighter) dies while saving lives in one particular building. The media turns the attention from the real culprit and places blame on Ha-Myeong’s father, tearing the family apart. Ha-Myeong and his mother jump into the river when his older brother disappears. Ha-Myeong is pulled from the river by a grandfather and mistaken for Dal-Po, the man’s son from 40 years ago. Now, Dal-Po grows up (between trials and fun) with his “younger brother (who is clearly older)” and his “niece” (same age). All the while though, Dal-Po is waiting for the right time to exact his revenge…
Of course there are other factors such as betrayal and romance and hatred and pain – same as all Korean dramas. I kinda put this one on par with My Love From Another Star.
