I really like this writer since she has written some amazing Kdramas in the past but something is lacking in this one that left me unsatisfied. I felt that this drama is well written and it address the prejudice and misconception about HIV really well -- lovable characters and hilarious at times (esp involving the Grandpa who keep calling everyone 'Hyung') but I felt the love between the leads are too one sided.
Here we have both sad and suffering male and female leads but I felt the storyline is more unfair towards the male lead. Yes, we can see how he fell in love with her but all these a merely a kindness that she showed to everybody that she meets. She rejected him many times and refused to even say goodbye (a little courtesy, no?) and even when he asked her to stay, she refused. I felt that its too one sided and unfair since after all, he pretty much sacrifice everything to be with her. And is it really necessary for the writer to wait one year to let them see each other again? I would prefer them to be just friends since to let him have this much feelings for her but not seeing it being returned is just plain unfair.
But despite my dissaticsaction, the overall storyline is good. I like the relationship between the female lead and her daughter. And here, it showed how mothers willing to sacrice everything for their chidlren even their own happiness.
The ending was bittersweet. I've seen better dramas from Lee Kyung Hee but this one doesn't dissapoint either. Seeing how cool Jang Hyuk is as a doctor, I wish he will act as a doctor one day!
