I'm in love with the drama. It's been a long time since I've watched one like this. At first I wasn't sure If I would like it because of the war background. But I really like Song Hye Kyo and I don't regret starting. I really advise people to watch it. Sure there are love stories but not only, it's not "too sweet".
