This drama is so exciting and makes me hooked on every episode. Looking at how Do Hyun transform from a warm person to cold hearted man really makes me goosebumps. Jung Yun character is so warm and sweet, her decision to stand by Do Hyun until the end, to support him during hard time makes my heart feel at ease. I have mixed feeling at In Hye character, sometimes I feel sorry for her but most of the times she makes me grinding my teeth. She will do anything to achieve her greed ambitions. And Myung Jun is so unfortunate man that can make me cry. All the actors have done a good job. This drama makes me realizes that we will lose everything if our eyes was blinded by Power, Greed & Money.
