One of the earliest South Korean Dramas to become a hit outside the country. It is thought to be a key element in the beginning of “The Hallyu Wave”.
Will Yoo-jin leap into Sang-hyuk’s arms? Will Joon-sang finally shake off the Noble Idiocy and grab his woman for some buckle-polishing slow dancing? Will I ever again spend three years recapping one 20-episode series??
And the hits just keep coming! All these problems piling up like debris on a beach. Each wave depositing even more. And somewhere down the line, we still want our happy ending!
Our couple is poised to begin a new chapter of their lives as husband and wife. But we already know that many people wish that the two of them had never met. But love conquers all, doesn’t it? Read the rest of this entry
We have had a few moments of cute. Joon-sang and Yoo-jin have finally found each other. But outside forces are already gathering to challenge their love.
Our couple shares some quiet happy time together. But already, the actions of the previous generation are casting a cloud over their relationship.
A trickle of memories gives Joon-sang a chance to reevaluate his younger self, while those around still reel from the revelation of who he really is.
Out from under all the machinations of the people around her, Yoo-jin manages to find the one boy she has always dreamed about. But he is no longer a boy, and no longer quite the person she used to love. Can she find a connection with him, even without the memories to forge that link?
Poor Lee Min-hyung. After all assertions to the contrary, can he convince anyone he is really Kang Joon-sang? Does he even believe it himself?
Our guy finally finds out who he is, but raises a big conundrum: Is he a childhood name with no memories? Or an adult name with fake memories? Which one is the real person?
Now we get to the part of the story that just makes me angry. Through a tissue of lies by the very people who should love and support her, Yoo-jin pulls away from her own happiness and heads for responsibility and pain instead. And poor Min-hyung also finds out secrets that his loving family has been hiding.
