Smile Dong Hae/Smile Again (korean drama)

Dong Hae was raised in America by his beautiful but unmarried and mentally deficient mother, Anna Laker, who was adopted there. He goes to Korea for a short-track skating competition and brings his mother along in secret, arranging for her to be picked up at the airport by his girlfriend, Yoon Sae Wa, an ambitious TV announcer who harbours a secret disdain for Anna's disability. Dong Hae meets Bong Yi, a poor assistant chef, when Sae Wa prioritizes her job and sends her to meet Anna instead. After Sae Wa later betrays him, Dong Hae begins to search for his father, creating a new family and finding new romance along the way.
i don't usually do daily dramas, dramas that are way over 50 eps and onto more than 100 eps. and this drama had 159. 0_0" but i decided to watch it because the story seemed interesting and i had enjoyed ji chang wook in bachelor's vegetable store and so wanted to see more of him heehehe
and it was worth my time investing on 159 eps :D now i know why this drama had such good reviews. as we watch on, we'll find out the secrets earlier than the leads which would have been boring but the leads found out about them in unexpected ways. i was expecting them to find out a particular secret in a particular way but they found out differently which surprised me pleasantly. that helped me in finishing the drama
it also helped that the case were all so great, even the 'villains', of course, many have said that if u watch dailies, you'd basically be yelling and cursing at your poor tv until it was over. but as i watched it online, i didn't have to chew my nails blunt while waiting. everything was there and so, i could marathon it. forward when i got irritated (and believe me u get frustrated a lot) rewind it when i wanted to swoon hehehehe
liked the ending too, was satisfied with it, it didn't leave me longing for more, except of course for ji chang wook. and so, off i go to watch ancient chinese dramas now with hu ge(cos he looks like ji chang wook and i've seen his dramas before:P)
you can find this drama on dailymotion and also on gooddrama i think. but just google and you'll get all the links. enjoy!!!
