This is going to be a really sad drama to watch.  

Yes, and all that comes from a daily drama. Kang Eun Tak is good in this type of genre. Plus him playing a character as  adult man but with mental age of 7. Roles like that  is alway challenging. Viki's gonna sub right?  Yey.

You should watch it! It’s exactly 100 episodes with nice settings and a good plot. Hyun-Kyung was also in First Wives Club, a weekend drama. (I think. I honestly haven’t found it anywhere)

They have the same given name but surnames are different.

I mixed them up. Lol! She looks a little similar to Oh in her picture but she was definitely in “Hide and Seek” with Lee Yoo-ri. She was also in “All Is Well” and “House of Bluebird”, I looked up the actress.
