After the son grows up, he finds out that the man he believed to be his father was in fact the man who kidnapped him.
I don’t usually watch this kind of drama. I just watched this because my mom watched this first, and I happened to watch an episode. You see, my curiosity always gets the best of me.
This drama is full of conflicts and revenge with a pinch of romance. From the first episode, the characters are fighting and deceiving each other. Too much anger and close-up intense staring. The story was unsurprising. Although I could even predict the ending, I was hoping for an unpredictable twist—the reason why I watched until the last episode.
If you’re looking for a drama that is full of intrigue and tension, then this may interest you. However, if you want to watch something light and more enjoyable, I don’t think you’d like this drama.
