There is a sweet, succinct Korean word that sums up the core of this series: makjang. For the uninitiated, makjang is an element that infers the use of unbelievable, often extreme plot elements that are not limited to: incest, rape, adultery, and terminal illness. Korean dramas often utilize this to keep viewers in suspense, interested in the outcome of the storyline—and Winter Sonata is no stranger to venturing in this territory. If anything, it swathes itself in layers of these extremes, and yet despite sounding ridiculously unbelievable as a result, there is something addicting about the series.

Usually I'm not much into writing reviews, nor reading them. But watching this anime makes my fingers dance across the keyboard trembling abnormally, with tears flowing down my cheek. This is surely going to be the next anime review for the newspaper I write in.

Story: Not like other typical shoujo romance, very unique and heart-rendering. It beats the spot of Itazura na Kiss to me, becoming the best romance anime I've watched till now.

ok the main female lead is really annoying, her love story is enough for me to dislike this anime.

short cut, the heroine always clings to her first love, no matter how many years passes she will never forget her first love and always be in love with her past without caring for her current fiancee.

the hero who is supposedly heroine first love is now with other woman, but still flirts with the heroine ( here the hero has amnesia, so he doesn't remember the heroine). yet he pathetically flirts with her though he has a girlfriend.

i mean what the hell am I supposed to think ...
