Mu Hyeok, who was abandoned by his biological family and abused by his adoptive family, leaves home at an early age and grows up as a thug in the streets of Australia.
During the wedding of Ji Yeong, the woman he loves, he gets shot twice by gunmen who were supposed to shoot Ji Yeong. Only one bullet was removed and the other is slowly killing him, leaving him with only a few months to live.

He goes to Korea to find his mother, thinking she has been a poor old lady suffering all this time, only to find out that his mother is filthy rich. On top of that, he also discovers he has a half-brother, Yun who's a famous singer.
Because of this, Mu Hyeok sets out to take revenge by befriending Yun and destroying him. However, along the way, he falls in love with Yun's childhood best friend Eun Chae, which ultimately lets him waver in his plan.

I'm sorry, I love you - I'm sorry, not a masterpiece.

I read all the nice comments about it and my expectations were probably way too high. With those expectations and without any experience with dramatic korean dramas I started watching it.

Cha Mu Hyeok (So Ji Seop) was abandoned by his korean family when he was a child. As adult he gets gets the chance to fly to Korea to find his real mother, who he thought was probably too poor to feed him. However his feelings turn into a wish for revenge and on his lonely path he encounters unexpected love.

The pace is really terribly slow sometimes, so slow you want to fast forward wherever possible. Other times it's just confusing, because all characters seem to overreact a lot. You will keep asking yourself, why they act the way they and won't always find an answer.

Something unique to this drama is probably that I didn't like any of the characters from the start. Even Song Eun Chae, who is meant to be the kind-hearted main girl, acts so stupid sometimes (well most of the time…) that you'll start questioning her sanity. Yet Im Su Jeong is capable to portrait an insane girl extremely well. As for Cha Mu Hyeok, it felt like he only had one facial expression throughout the whole drama.. Oh wait maybe two.. but not more, really.

But I did certainly develop a liking for Cha Mu Hyeok, which was due to the fabulous ending of the drama.

Overall it is an average drama, yet worth a watch if you like overly dramatic characters and a plot with twists, turns and virtual punches in your stomach from time to time. Yet I give it a 3/5 because of the awesome ending, which was just as dramatic as the whole thing, if not even more. It is a drama that might leave you depressed, wether because you don't know if it was really worth watching or because of the sad story. Anyhow I did cry, love and had a good time.

Similar plot about a guy abandoned as child who tries to get revenge.

Both dramas ring a familiar tone and tune, and coincidentally have So Ji Seob in it.

What I feel about this drama? It looks that creators leave all the money in first episode in Australia. They was shooting the poor plot and acting in Korea. That is pity.

I'm not a fan of dramas, this one was no exception. It's very good in its genre but the plot holes, the overreacting characters and I'm sorry but someone sleeping while standing... really?
I should probably give up on dramas altogether.

You can say this drama is about revenge. Maybe so. But i think there is something more important. It's just a story about very strong person who really want to rest in peace, to calm himself, to accept the idea of ​​his own death. Yea, he is sometimes act like selfish child. But do you realy see only this? He is too clear and bright to act wrong. all his bad actings because of the unbearable pain/ So who can blame him?...
I don't think it is about revenge. It's about a life.About a really wonderful life which is possible only on the verge of death.

After being on-hold for 2 years I decided to give it a try again, I like it, but I don't get EunChae...
First she was all about Yoon, then she realised she has feelings for Mu Hyeok and after Yoon's accident she went back to Yoon... I just can't get her... I get that she's feeling guilty for Yoon's accident, but I can't understand why she's being a complete ass to Mu Hyeok - I'm at episode 11

Edit: Finished... It's sad, but for some odd reason unlike everyone here, I couldn't cry.
I still didn't like EunChae, but other than her character it was good. I loved the relationship between MunHyeok and Yoon
