THOUGHTS & DISCUSSION:
This drama is really a very nice one to watch. The drama balances the golf and the characters very well. It’s something that I wish ‘Invincible Lee Pyung Kang’ would have been, but it didn’t.
I loved the fact that John Lee never wavered like almost every other male lead. He loved Min Hae Ryung from beginning to the end. He knows that Mi Soo likes him, but he loves MHR and is always so considerate to think of Mi Soo’s feelings.
It’s great that they even portrayed the mother-daughter relationship of Min Hae Ryung with her mother.
Overall, it was really a very nice and comfortable ride. I love the ending as well. It was a perfect ending. Despite Mi Soo not gaining John Lee’s love, she’s able to move on and hopefully one day, the three of them can comfortably hang out with each other.
