I love LBH and his character..
I'd pick him and minchul over any other korean guy.
loved the ending, even if minchul changed drastically.. but i think it's natural under the circumstances. i didn't really notice it drag in the end. maybe because it's the first kdrama i watched and i had no idea about the ten commandments of kdrama.
at first, i felt sorry for ryu shi won's character.. but i disliked him halfway through the drama. if minchul changed for the better, ryu shi won was the opposite.
for me, it was life-altering.
i also thought choi ji woo and lee byung hun were great in this drama. CJW crying scenes actually impressed me.
Thank goodness I watched this before Stairway to Heaven. After watching STH, I don't like her as much as before. I skipped most of the second half of STH cos it was too painful to watch... painfully irritating.. or is it irritatingly painful? sorry
Like what was said in a previous post, if you start on kdramas... or any kdrama with CHoi Ji Woo in it, Beautiful Days is a good pick.
