Addictive Rating: 2
Synopsis: [Taken from wiki.d.addicts.com]
Seung Hee, after losing his girlfriend in a tragic accident, left for 3 years. When he came back, he sought to make a film in a rural area. Someone caught his eye – Bok Shil, who looks exactly like his deceased girlfriend, Hye Soo. Seung Hee followed Bok Shil in order to get some answers, and ended up falling for her. Still the questions remain, is he attracted to Bok Shil because of the memories of his ex-girlfriend, or does he like Bok Shil for who she is? What happens when competitors come into the picture and families opposing their love?
What I have to say:
Now considered an older drama (2006), it's easy to say dramas have come a long way since 2006. Personally, I think some of the most recent dramas made still suffer from below average story-telling, and some of the older ones do a much better job. So, in other words what I'm saying is don't let the year this was made stop you. It's got a great and touching story that is told well. I admit that my adoptee soul was moved by some of the scenes when Bok-Shil feels torn between the mother that raised her and the mother that gave birth to her. I also really like Jung Ryeo Won, which may assist in me really liking this drama.

Soju (1) | It had me coming back for more, but left me with a hangover. Worth it in the moment, but slight regret the next day.
Kimbap (2) | It moved well and often left me wondering what would happen in the next episode, but it wasn't as fulfilling as it had the potential to be.
Bibimbap (3) | I lost a lot of sleep because they knew how to end each episode with a cliffhanger! Lots of harmonious ingredients making this one a win!
Fanatic (4) | An amazing drama that was very well told and nearly every single episode ended with a major cliffhanger making you scream for more! I'm an absolute fan!
(I only put on here the dramas I actually recommend because I think it's really good. Even a soju rating means it was good and satisfying. A fanatic rating just means it blew me away and was near perfection. There are many dramas I've seen that I don't have on my recommendation list.)
