I wanted to watch a sad kdrama because I was tired of all the happy ones. Everyone kept raving that Autumn in My Heart was so sad and good. I actually found the drama to be mediocre with little substance. I saw no chemistry b/w Joon suh and Eun suh and whenever they were together, they would get sappy and emotional and some boring song would play. It made me want to fall asleep. Yes the ending was sad because well it's death but if the characters were more likeable and dynamic, it would have been better. The only one I liked was Tae Suhk. Also, Yumi was quite tame compared to other 2nd leading ladies. She was too nice and I didn't care for her at all. Aren't I suppose to hate her?
So I don't like that the series was overdramatic. I mean I know it's a kdrama but the acting was just over the top, especially the beginning scene, almost made me not want to watch it. I thought the series was a guilty pleasure but not necessarily good. I didn't like any of the characters and there was ZERO chemistry b/w In Ki and Min Jae. A lot of the characters (but not all) were 1 dimensional with smirks and too much ambition. Felt more like an American soap opera than a kdrama. Also, it was too long and I wanted to fall asleep at a lot of the parts. I liked the ending but it left a lot of unanswered questions
Really great! I was always eager to watch the next episode and sad when the series ended. But, I was upset w/ the ending. The last episode was built up for a sad ending. I mean Jong Tae died, he denied that Soo Ho was his son, etc. I didn't really understand why Ina gave Soo Ho up just when they were about to get married.The last episode should have just stopped when they left for Austria. I loved Henney's character, Philip & so did my entire family. We were seriously rooting for him.Yes he had some difficulties with the language but in my opinion, he still managed to be a good character. Philip was very kind & rational. But kind guys never get the girl.I would prefer it if he spoke Korean/German because it would've made the series flow better. The English was a bit awkward. I felt bad for him. I never liked Eun Young & Soo Ho 'cause I never felt a spark with them. Acting & music were good Though I had a lot of issues w/ the series I loved it. You know a kdrama is good when you're sad that it's over. =)
