By far, this multilayered drama uncovers the core reality of the fringes of social culture. I was taken aback by the deep well of emotion pouring out of Joon Soo. This darkness that enshrouded his life made for an unstable mind which Hye Jin quieted through her saving grace. In essence both of them used each other to escape their demons (his past and her toxic relationship with her spouse) for it was a symbiotic relationship between the two of them. Unfortunately for Joon Soon, those demons clawed at him at every turn causing his anguish. Even so, he was still able to affect a positive change in Hye Jin's life making his purpose that much more profound. We all have a reason for being, his was to give Hye Jin a new lease on life. This is a series that will grab a hold of you and shake you up as I was captivated by it at every corner. It is indeed a drama for the ages.
What can I say, these parents damaged these children. Their ethical compass approach to life was tainted due to the brainwashing they received growing up. For them those with money had better backgrounds and were worthy in their eyes regardless of their character. Instead of seeking love and growing wealth with them, they opted for gold digging. This was the key to happiness in their eyes. Granted, two of the children were able to snap out of this trance and grow as individuals which made this drama interesting to watch. However the parents, albeit a lost cause, provided a lot of humor at the expense of their family. In spite of the theme, I enjoyed this drama very much. From start to finish this drama's truly a gem to watch. A must see.
"The good ones cannot handle the world. The heartless are the winners and the most brazen will take everything" Jang Tae Joo. Also, "Real wealth is thinking what you have is enough so what's the use of having 10 billion won if you envie someone with 20 billion then you're poor" Yoon Sul Hee. "Spiraling out of control into that quagmire of mayhem these characters reach new lows of immorality" Macknee99. These sentiments pretty much sum up this entire drama. I loved the characters, story line and the financial intrigue. Sadly, Tae Joo waded out to far into the deep without a lifeline. He desperately tried to hang on to what he had while sharks circled him waiting to take him down. By his sentiment, you can see him starting to lose what's left of his soul. He managed to atone for his sins by grabbing onto the only lifeline extended to him by Sul Hee. Lesson, greed will consume you if there is nothing to take it's place. Metaphysically, the love of Sul Hee saved him in the end.
