i've just finished watching this series and my eyes are tear streaked. it's a good thing that i'm alone right now. this is an amazing drama, where the cast were simply wonderful. they acted so well that it made us pissed off at them, or made us shy when watching them or stupidly happy like them. and it's not just one or two who made me feel this way. everyone did, from the mother to the secretary to the kids.
this is a really sweet drama and both vic and park eun hye were wonderful. i think they had good chemistry. park eun hye managed to portray the emotions really well despite not saying anything. i bet she must have really practised on the sign language. vic was really good as well. i'm not going to spoil the whole thing but i do warn that hankies might be needed especially for those who really get into the mood. it can be a tearjerker at times. even i, one who's quite cold hearted you could say, was really touched and moved to tears.
you can find the complete series with english subtitles on veoh and tw.sugoitw.com this is definitely a recommendation. enjoy!!!
