Likes: It’s a terrific story and I love the fact that Joo Won took the lead. With his experience as a genius surgeon before, it was easy to associate him with another medical drama. Young, ambitous, talented and risk-taker Kim Tae Hyun is a character to fall in love with. That even the most beautiful sleeping princess would sleep no more :).
Talking of “the most beautiful”, I think this drama has the most beautiful leading lady I’ve ever seen (since it’s my first Kim Tae Hee drama ever, haha!). She really looks like a doll! How can one be so beautiful even in their sleep! Angel-like in her long hair and fierce with a short hair. Just too perfect!
I love the music that’s being played everytime someone has to make a great entrance… It makes everyone looks so great and powerful and cool and good-looking and huge…. even on their burial.
Han Yeo Jin’s house is magnificient! It looks familiar though because it’s the same house in the “The Heirs”. In this drama, they put more details in the interior.
The sleeping beauty lab is a work of art! This has to come up very impressive as it would be the home of the most beautiful, rich, (powerful if awake) chaebol heiress.
I love Cynthia, the supermodel! Her presence was something. She would have overshadowed Han Yeo Jin’s character if she was there all the time :). It was a short role but glad to see her again in the last episode.
Some comical relief… how about our gangster support? Love them! Our gangster boss specially gave the whole drama a lighter mood.
Poor Han Do Joon but at least wifey had a change of heart for him.
Romantic windy hill scenes! And I got 2 of them.
How could you resist a million-dollar proposal from your very beautiful girlfriend? From an heiress to surgeon boyfriend… marry me, be my only heir and legal guardian… ahm of course YES!
And I just love the ending. Teasing! I thought they would pull a nasty one, almost got me fooled. But it turned out to be awesome! With the come back of Cynthia and a young company, they pulled a very Yong Pal ending! Love, love, love!
Dislikes: Just some logic holes here… why would you hire that sly secretary who was with the enemy all along and put all your trust in him. It was just so annoying watching him almost winning in the end.
This drama made it to top 10 in 2015. Watch video…
