Title: 세어라 금순아 / Goot-se-eo-ra Geum-soon-ah
Also known as: Aja, Geum Soon
Han Hye Jin as Na Geum-soon
Kang Ji Hwan as Goo Jae-hee
Lee Min Ki as Noh Tae-wan
This is a story of a young widow, Geum-Soon, who never becomes discouraged or blames other people – no matter what happens in her life. The viewers will get both hope and comfort by watching her do her best in everything she does.
It is also a story of a family who loves and takes care of each other. You can always turn to your family and their love gives you the hope to get through the tough times. Sometimes, they seem to make your life more difficult, but they will always stand up for you and love you whatever you do.
My Comment :
This one of the best long K-Dramas (164 Episodes) from 2005. Great casts, storyline and OST made the long episodes really nice to follow. The main story of this drama is actually sad but it is balanced with some funny scenes as well so that it does not fall into typical tearjerker drama. No wonder this drama gained high ratings during its airing.
I love the chemistry between Kang Ji Hwan and Han Hye Jin. Love the supporting casts, from the old characters to the young ones including Lee Min Ki. The story and the characters are so realistic. Jae Hee is a prince charming but with flaws. In the begining, he always got into trouble every time he encountered with Geum Soon . That was why he did not like her. Most of the others characters are described as good people but yet they are not saints. It was hard for them to accept Geum Soon as a young widow. Jae Hee is no exception as well. He even humiliated Geum Soon when he knew that she was a widow with one son. However, he could not help to fall in love with her . He turned to truly love Geum Soon at last but they had to pass so many difficulties due to the opposition from their families who either could not accept Geum Soon’s status or did not want Geum Soon remarry again.
