I finally managed to finish this drama after struggling with the frustrating blank screens and repeated commercials on each browser reloading. Skipping some episodes, returning to watch them later and then jumping to the final episode is of course not a good way to watch a drama. Watching it raw had also left me with parts that I do not understand.
My personal take on the characters pairing:
Yoon Ji Hyun (Sang Hyun) and Nam Jung Won (Kim Yoo Mi)
I’m not sure why but their pairing up is not something I would root for, and I still do not understand why he likes her. Perhaps it was her indifference to him initially which piqued his interest and he saw something in her as he got to know her better. Ji Hyun was never serious in his relationship with women but he fell in love with her. She could have been the one he was willing to commit to but unfortunately it did not work out for them.
One thing which I find rather annoying and which had upset Ji Hyun as well, is her lingering feelings for Hyun Woo and inability to let go. Enough of her woeful expression. I don’t blame Ji Hyun for giving up on her after witnessing her farewell hug with Hyun Woo. If I were in his shoes, I would probably have done the same.
Yoon Ji Hyun and Seo Hye Jin (Moon Jung Hee)
She found him attractive and was the one who made the first move to get his attention. Though they did get together for a while, their relationship did not progress beyond a few dates. I thought she was more suited to Ji Hyun.
Jang Hyun Soo (Lee Hyun Woo) and Nam Jung Won
From what I could conclude, their break-up was perhaps due to her reluctance to fully commit to their relationship and she was too caught up with work to have time for him. But what puzzles me is why they did not just reconcile since they obviously love each other.
Jang Hyun Soo and Han Young Eun (Yoo Sun)
Young Eun is the most tortured character where her heart is concerned. Though she had a mighty crush on Hyun Soo, she would not allow herself to show her feelings despite her constant longing and heartache. Even after Hyun Soo and Jung Won’s break-up, she still believed it was not right for her to go for him. Despite everything, they do end up as a couple in the end.
Kang Ji Sub (Kang Woo Hyuk) and Han Young Eun
I find this pairing rather cute. Even though Young Eun only has eyes for Hyun Soo, Ji Sub is persistent in his affection for her. I feel sorry for him that they did not end up together. But just as it is with Jung Won, Young Eun’s constant on-the-verge-of-tears expression over Hyun Soo got on my nerves. What’s with these women?
