Yeah, I remember she told her friend while she was in a drunken state that she wished Jangsoo was a little more like Junho.
Speaking of Junho, why do you think he acted like an ass to Soyeong when he found out that Jangsoo was ill. I guess that's his way of letting her go, but couldn't he have simply said, "Ok I won't try to go for you anymore, let's be friend" or whatever.
I think these K-drama characters think that if they act like complete jerks, then the woman will be forced to let them go. As if So-young was the one to hold onto Junho to begin with!Sheesh. Why do they have to make the girl hate them?
Every week I say I'm going to stop watching because it's so sad.
Every week I end up tuning in "just for the beginning" and end up watching the whole thing.
I think the lead actor has great range. He's so different from the typical leads in most of the others I've seen. Actually every actor in this drama is unique… except the one doctor who played almost the exact same role in at least one other series (BB?)
I agree with whoever said this drama is far better at the end than the beginning. I hope the last 2 episodes aren't too sappy. At least Solmi has her teeth now.
Well, my last impressions are the same as the first impressions I got from this show. I thought it was one of the best shows I've ever seen, right up there with Dae Jang Geum and Winter Love Song and hoped it wouldn't be a let down. Well, it wasn't. Everything about this show, from the powerful dialogue delivery of the two lead actors to the scenes of Jangsoo in his deranged state was telling of the director's skills. I loved this show, though it left me in tears most of the time. It really carried across the message of the meaning of family and spending as many good moments with the ones you love as often as you can. I first thought that the actor playing Jangsoo was a bit a of a spaz, for lack of a better word, when he would jump around and do crazy things, but later, once the disease kicked in as well as the realization that his time on earth would be cut short, his talent really showed. It's sad to know that this show ended as quickly as it began, but I'm glad they didn't drag it out more than needed. Waiting for My Rosy Life to end because it was so long really took away, IMO, from the essence of the show, not to mention the acting. Invisible Man is definitely a show to be missed.
I didn't see all of the episodes however, the ones I did see were extremely powerful. All of the actors were very good in their specific roles; the 2 main actors were excellent. Mr. Choi's performance was outstanding. In this counry we associate Alzheimer's with age - however, it can and does develop in younger people and is a horrific path for the patient and the family. It's bad enough that the brain slowly loses its abilities to remember but the younger the patient at the onset of AD, the worse the PHYSICAL problems, such as walking, talking, vision etc. This was a beautifully done story of love and family and even though I went through a 2-month supply of tissue just watching the eps that I did, it was well worth it. Does anyone know how it fared in Korea? Was it a "hit" - given the gravity of its subject, I hope it did well so that other producers/directors etc. will be inclined to give us more dramas as good as this.

Soapygrams, I couldn't agree with you more. I didn't like this drama at first, but I decided to give it a little time before I wrote it off and I'm so glad I did. I thought they handled this very sad subject beautifully, and it was much more uplifting at the end than you would've expected when death was the inevitable result. All of the actors were outstanding; now I know why that little girl received an award for her performance. I haven't cried this much in a long time, but I came away from this drama with a sense of peace too. A perfect story about the power of love.
