All that glitters is not gold. However, in the age of materialism, people seem to be obsessed, more than ever, with anything that glitters, whether it be superficial beauty or unnecessary luxury goods. This drama tells a story of Han Seok-hoon, a genius cardiotoraic surgeon, whose motivation for success stemmed from fear that no one will want him unless he proves himself to be smart and successful. When his wealthy fiancé Min-hee suggests that her parents might not approve of him because he is an orphan raised by adoptive parents, he goes as far as to hire fake parents to attend the family meeting. However, an unfortunate incident leads to a series of misfortunes that leaves Seok-hoon with nothing, and he finally realizes the futility of wealth and fame he dedicated his life to. Having lost everything, Seok-hoon decides to start over and find what truly makes him happy.

The problem is not resembling each other. But that the characters are made so one dimensional (cliche of a cliche) & lacking any basic intuition regardless of education or background. They are either good POS or evil POS (sex, education or background or wealth are irrelevant). That is the extent that the characters show. Not even for their own survival or basic benefit(Always Spring). By the 10th time you run to the person you think killed someone in your family or a friends family to share info that would help them. Then you are nothing but a naive POS (Drop by Drop).
I hope you notice I never mentioned the actors or production people. They do work hard. They very rarely miss the mark. But if the mark is crap to begin with. They are trapped bringing cliche's to life. Specially in the 100+ episode daily's. The writes & the execs & the broadcast stations share the blame for the ridiculous shows they produce. And just as big a blame are local/fanboy idiot audiences that as long as they put a pretty face on the screen they will gobble it all up. It doesn't matter if the girl that just kicked some douche's butt after falling in love now she can't fight her self out of a paper bag (Cinderella and Four Knights - I actually enjoyed this drama but the writing inconsistencies really hurt it). Specially the local audiences that count the most. Yet is their country & culture that is being portrayed as crap over & over. Are 80% of all evil, headaches & crimes cause by moms, grandmothers, mothers-in-law or step-moms in Korea. According to Drama's they are. Seems the whole drama industry is based on this cliche.
That is why actual innovative shows like A Beautiful Mind which rival any western show in uniqueness & originality (I never thought someone would take a old tale like Frankenstein & make it unique & original in this date in age) & was acted & produced & written perfectly gets the shaft (episodes cut due to low ratings). Since it wasn't some type of idol vehicle.
You can really see the vapidness of the fanboy audiences when you read the comments regarding Man to Man & the leading female character. The writers did a great job explaining who she is & why she is like that. And the actress knocked it out of the park. Yet the vapid fans can't understand why a character that acts & looks like her is such an exotic & appealing woman for the lead character & actor.
Some of this productions are worst they just sticking your head in the freezer to relieve daily stress. Heck some actually cost more stress when you try to understand what the hell you just watched.
I know Hollywood ran out of ideas decades ago. But I didn't think the Korean industry would run out of ideas this quickly.

Even though every drama resembles each other they help relieve the stress of daily life and give us something to laugh and comment about.All the actors and production people work really hard and I'd like to thank them all.If you're unhappy with them just turn them off.

Just another cliche drama. And they are tripling the cliches for the finale.
Here is a pic of most Korean/Asian show writers. They are nothing but filled with turd ideas. That must be some pathetic audience they must be targeting. Since they've been repeating this for years & years. Worst ones are @ KBS & sister networks & MBC.
ht tp ://bit.ly /2rpz0Q2 (Remove the three spaces or just google Bingo Ball Dispenser)
Cliche 1- If you are a good person. That means you must let everybody wall over you. And you will believe everything they tell you. No matter how many times they lie to you. But you will always response with a big surprised "WHAT!!!!". Then repeat what they just told you. Even if you already knew what you where just told. Cliche 2- Asian/Korean US Educated Doctors forget most basic medical knowledge as soon as they get off a plane in Asia. They can't read a DNA results or check to make sure they received the right results. They just look at the % conclusion like any non medical person would. And they give the sensitive samples to a third party @ work specially if your #1 enemy works there. Since you know. DNA test contamination is not a big deal according to said "Doctor". Cliche 3- You call someone mom & you see that person walking worst then a drunk. But you just let that person walk away into traffic. I wonder what is going to happen. Splat. Cliche 4- Once the bad person does not have anything to hide/loose. All of a sudden they get to redeem themselves by making a stupidly obvious decision they should of made decades ago. Cliche 5- Speeding delivery trucks/construction trucks are always conveniently speeding around hospitals/schools & residential neighborhoods. No body ever looks both ways before splat!!!.
I know I missed a ton of others. And this Drama was not as bad as Drop by Drop & the worst Always Spring. But the patheticness of most Daily's is quite astonishing.

Oh my, my ❤ just dropped! Seol Hwa, I pity you! All your sufferings and heartaches was brought about by your greedy birth mom! I don't blame Dr Han on the other hand. It's the right thing to do. Family is family, you can't do anything about it!

I always had a feeling Seokhoon & Joonsang were switched first I thought it was their mothers but apparently it is definitely their father. At the begging Seokhoon thought Choo Ja was his mother because she was humming a tune only Geum Jeong-do, Nan-seol, and Seok hoons birth mom knew. SO yes the real Joonsang is Seokhoon, that means the fake one is gonna get kicked out and Minhee and her mom lost the pot of gold.. aka Dr.Han.
Aya233 days ago
Why am I getting this weird feeling that the TRUE Joonsang is doctor han & that doctor han's "father" is the fake Joonsangs dad? after all they both were in the fire in Namwon.. POSSIBLE
Janet240 days ago
@jaden. Yeah whoever Sul Hwa chooses as her life partner is fine with me. As you said, we must evaluate the story and not go for the lead actors.
jaden12240 days ago
@janet.Very much agree!!Maybe some viewers just love to watch and just viewed for the leading actors and actresses.They dont evaluate the story.They are blind in the character of others.They dont even see the reality.If you are in joon sang shoes..you will understand.I dont see anything wrong.Hes just a kind and loving guy.I am hoping both for the best of joon sang and dr.han here.
Aya241 days ago
I'm kind of getting bored of this drama like what's up with the fake brother loves the sister, and step brother love the sister.. wtf can't they make it sound NOT disturbing. 🙁🔫😭🤢😡💢😒 Even if Jihan (Dr.Han) is not related whatsoever they're supposed to be brother & sister, anything more than that sounds gross to me. & anybody who disagrees well good for you, I'm just stating my opinion, So don't reply to me I won't even respond.
Janet241 days ago
@jaden. How nice to see a Joon Sang supporter. I personally don't think he's not after his father's wealth nor the company. He was never interested to work at the company until his father agreed to give Sul Hwa a job there and it is all fair in love and war to go after a girl. Dr. Han can pursue the same girl and the choice is up to her. I can't understand why JS is called a scumbag & other horrid names for going after a girl.
jaden12241 days ago
I cant wait for the next episode.I like DR. Han but i cant help but to love fake joon sang so much.Hes fighting for his love,never mind if its against the world!Hes not related to sul hwas mother..So i guess the problem is not the relationship between them but instead its sul hwa mother dosnt like joon sang to marry her daughter because shes greedy to money.he discriminate joon sang for being fake son...

jaden12245 days ago
how they would think to go on DNA if obviously everybody in the character have no idea who Dr.Han is?i dont see anything wrong on Joon Sang the fake one..all he cared was Sul hwa.hes not aftering the riches of the Joon Sang family.we just hope that anytime soon the truth will reveal and Dr.han will be acknowledge as real son.And I am on sul hwa decision who ever wins in her heart... if its Dr.han or joon sang!!
tyler247 days ago
Joon Sang-shi you're the only one who's close to both Nan Sul and Sul Hwa, can't you get hair samples from both of them? DNA test will definitely prove your suspicion. Better do it quickly or else the witches Gwi-Jung/Min Hee will beat you to it.

Janet308 days ago
@Lin, I dont know why the koreans look down on orphans, single mothers, divorcees and what have you. They are snobs of the worst kind. I dont know whether slapping and hitting people happens in only dramas ? OMG the noise they make slurping their noodles kill me.
The loan shark definitely had cosmetic surgeries done and not very good ones, that's why she looks scary. I feel sorry for the Geum family but I admire them (except the youngest nasty daughter) for being so closely knit.
Lin308 days ago
@Janet I have been watching, It breaks my heart that orphans are a target of abuse by ignorant people. I think it's best to marry boys who have no parents, no stress whatsoever. That JS stepmother is an orphan herself, one would think she would sympathise with JS who lost a mum. And she wouldn't have been in that family had JS' mother been alive. She will always play second fiddle. Did that loan shark woman have something done to stretch the skin around her eyes making them look big, that's one weird face I have seen. It really looks weird as they just stare and flesh around the eyes seems to be sticking to the eyebrow lines. Very scary. Just feeling sorry for the Geum family.
Janet312 days ago
@Lin, are you still watching this ? I am on episode 18 now and will continue as I find it interesting except for the talks-like-a-moving train woman loan shark who is very uncouth, very low class who thinks she is above everything else. OMG for her to look down on a surgeon and orphan with her own lowly background beats me !

Lin366 days ago
@Janet will try and give it a chance, but that woman who acted at that drama The Promise, I just find her voice and mannerisms do annoying, I know she is just acting, but her roles put me off any drama. There 3 characters who are just loud and boring really. Mind this drama has fit eye candies, Minsoo lookalike, tall handsome boys or man. Until the screaming old women come into the picture then everything goes South.
Janet366 days ago
@Lin, the guy who fell into the river looks a bit like Minsoo. Lol.
Janet366 days ago
@Lin, oh no if its going to be another typical daily drama with annoying characters, then I am out here. I will try a bit & see ... I see many negative comments already.

@ Janet just realised the drama has annoying characters, I may skip this one maybe check blogs
Janet367 days ago
@Lin, I just found out this is another daily drama with 120 episodes. I have given up a few of them (except for Here Comes Love) as you may probably know and I am sure this one will be clichéd and go round and round in circles. Will try out some episodes first.
Lin367 days ago
@Janet, @ Anita, I really hope you are watching this one. It sounds promising with a lot of cliched episodes to follow.
