And at times, because I want to look good in front of her, I’d learn the old school “trot” dance that her father likes and learn baduk and learn how to eat different kinds of food without being picky. And at times, I’d memorize all the songs of her favorite pop artists. And at times, I’d go to the place she frequents and wait for her the whole day. I’d tell her I miss her if I miss her and I’d say I long for her when I do. I’d feel excitement and gratitude. To date like other people, I think I prayed for it. And I…say my prayers again. Thank you. Now I’m…happy.” – Kang Ma Roo

    Oh my…… I just love this series, I swear! Those quotes are d best. The last two, Maru’s prayers just bring tears to my eyes.., they r so cute. N d one wr he says ‘ i won’t die, y should i die, i even didnt do anything wrong’ was d ‘bestest’. That’s so like Maru!; the most intriguing character av ever known in my entire life of dramas. Great work Song Joong Ki.

        Worth watching indeed! I became a fan of dark melodramas because of it. Now its my thing. SJK was rili impressive, am nw his staunch fan. Loved him in DOTS too. Twas fun watching his loose cheerful side after d tense Maru character. I think hz a very very talented actor. A great future awaits him.
