really beautiful drama, definitely into it so far, i feel so bad for the kid tho, can't even believe the things that mom and her disgusting boyfriend did...

it's kinda of fun to see Lee Jae Yoon once again return as doctor lol, i do like his introduction to the story, although after ep 4 i got a lil scared for soojin and hye na to be found out bc now at least 5 people know what's going on or that something is going on, this is bound to go terribly wrong!

I have watched ep 1-3 and in the middle of four and I have to wonder am I suppose to feel bad for the real mother in this. They way she was to her child I just can not feel bad for her! Maybe if something changes but at this moment I am so glad her child is away from her. I know things could change but in these first few I don't feel sorry for her, if anything I keep saying you didn't deserve your daughter for the way you treated her. (sorry for rant) I don't know where to go to rant about the mother. Going back to finish episode 4.
