This was a surprise love drama for me. I didn't think I was going to like or love it at all because I just though it was the simple particular love story of twin sisters separated from birth something like that but I was totally different. For one, I didn't even read the summary since I just didn't want to basically but I fell in love with the drama after the first couple episode. I also didn't know that Hong Ki was playing the main male lead but he looks more handsome compared to his other dramas. For the drama itself, it a good drama and different. First of all, the story flows along although at the end it sort of skip years after years, the story of the drama works together and bring a good ending.

Rate: 9.5/10
