Watched this some time ago so this review is by memory. It is sad when Dae San only gets to know his whole real family when he replaces his brother. If his brother does not have health problem or meet him, he may not even know about it. He seems to have it all then: the knowledge of his real parents, money… However, when he starts to lose the trust of the people he knows as he seems like a totally different person with rich clothes, high status and doing things by follows the big company’s purpose, I think it is not worth it. Too bad his brother never returns and leaves him in his position. Probably if Joon Hee has Dae San as a companion since young, he would not have felt so lonely in the family where everyone else is blinded by power. It feels good when the people in that family tries to get rid of him after sometime as an imposer but cannot as he is related by blood with them.
It is funny when Dae San replaces Joon Hee and does many things that Joon Hee would never have done such as his way of talking to their grandmother (intimate greetings). I feel sorry for the mother of Joon Hee and Dae San. How can the grandmother be so cruel as to separate the child from the mother? Dae San and Yeo Jin’s relationship is put to test as Dae San starts to do things in the perspective of a big company and pretends he is rich Joon Hee and not her lover, poor Dae San.
Lesson learnt: try not to replace somebody even though you are given money for it will bring more trouble to you. Haha. For me, I would rather lead the poor but fulfilling life than the luxurious but lonely life. Money cannot buy everything. What about you?
