Femme Fatale my butt! This character, if anything is sad yet strong and determined. Now, I'm a guy and looking at this drama from a guy's perspective, and I tell you, this woman is beautiful. His wife putting up a big fuss about betraying her in his heart needs a reality check. If that were the case every guy I know would be divorced. TEMPTATION IS NOT A SIN, we all have those thoughts, and nobody's a saint, IT'S NOT ACTING ON THEM that makes us honorable men. Enough said!
There is a popular saying "keep your friends close but your enemies closer". This character jumps in with both feet without a thought to the consequences. Instead of being patient and lying low then springing the trap, he shows his hand and then is surprised when the bad guys won't cooperate. Idiot! I love dramatic historical dramas when the lead has at least has some sense. He, jumping the gun as it where, is only going to create for himself new enemies which will get him no further in having his father's name cleared. I'll continue to watch and see how he muddles through. If you want to watch an intelligent and engaging HKD I suggest "Tree With Deep Roots".
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.
