I'm torn on this drama - there were some parts that were good, some that made me cry, and some that were drawn out. And I thought the ending was anti-climatic.
I've been juggling between the dramas King 2 Hearts, Playful Kiss, Iris, My Girlfriend Is a Nine Tailed Fox, and You're Beautiful. None of them have really drawn me in where I can't wait to watch the next episode. I came across a member's review about this one and decided to see if this would be the one to capture my interest. It did! That hadn't happened in a long time and I had even stopped watching Kdramas for awhile because I was bored. The story was romantic, sweet, funny, adventurous, and sad. **SPOILER** I loved how much the king loved her and how it affected him after her death. Kim Soo Hyun was great as the king! What I didn't like was that Han Ga In seemed a little dead/flat in her acting. And it bothered me that none of the guards shot an arrow and saved the older brother from getting killed. I know the Prince was going to let him, but come on, a guard wouldn't know that from a distance and would've shot an arrow at the bad guy. BUT it won't stop me from watching this one over and over.
This was simple story of a single mom and her daughter. Not much in romance although it's in the drama summary. It ended on a positive note but I didn't leave it feeling that happy, more melancholy. Didn't see any attraction between the two main characters and didn't really like any of the co-stars. Not on my list of re-watches.
