My thoughts about the drama are the same as yours, Zorro, but I will keep on watching because I think it will get better as it progresses. I don't feel that anyone is obnoxious (I think you are talking about the husband) they are just not very interesting at this point. The husband is a typical man, not very concerned about how the house looks or whether or not they have money in the bank. He also takes his wife for granted. His wife's illness will wake him up and I'm sure we will see a change in his character before the end.
Has anyone else noticed that this drama seems to be preaching about the dangers of smoking in a very subtle manner. Several of the characters smoke, however the main character who gets lung cancer does not smoke. I have never seen anyone smoke in a drama before.
I finished this drama a few weeks ago, and I have to agree with the above comments. This show is a real slow starter, and I felt like I could “take it or leave it” until about midway through, when it stated to get noticeably better.
If you’re already watching, and wondering about giving it up, I think it’s worth hanging in there until you get to episode 10 or 12 (there are 24 episodes total). If you still don’t like it by then, you can probably say goodbye without too much regret.
