I must admit that I am not too familiar with Kdramas. But this drama was an eye-opener for me. The usually reserved and contradictory Sam-soon is portrayed as a helpless person who does not know how to deal with her own life. And she is not alone as most of us have experienced a similar situation. She is not a greedy person, but she cannot grant the ask of her lover Hee-Jin. She feels that Yi-young gets to paint for the rich and other people get to live in the lap of luxury, and she'd rather live as an anonymous immigrant on the other side of the world painting for rich people. Jin-heon loves her so dearely and finally makes his amature move on her without even getting a date or meeting her. When you come to the realization that the person you love is also a pain-in-the-ass, there is no turning back. You can only be yourself and face the new sense of self together.
Befenore, you've got me. Crammed with Chinese subtitles and blazing with a rush of adrenaline in watching an all-too-sacred-to-me Korean drama. I love the way the storyline portrayed the seemingly constrictive bonds between a mother and daughter. The theme of redemption came to life for me as well. In all the musicals that I've seen, the mother always gets the final redemption moment. In this drama I realized that healthy family bonding can continue even when people are spread all over the globe. I felt like I could relate to the love between all four leads. The journey was an emotional roller coaster. How can I forget my first heartbreak? Keep up the good work. I'll continue to do so with your dedication and commitment.
The first episode kinda made me think I had missed out on something. There was drama, songs, LOVE, MONEY, etc. I would have loved to have seen more of the behind the scenes of Sam-soon and Ye-young's pastry shop business, but I have to see how the rest unfolds. It's cute that Sam-soon ends up cheering Hee-jin on for her bakery even though she hates it (or says that she does). d2c66b5586
