Soo and the rest of the characters are lonely people. Those who sincerely stands with them somehow goes away, and it makes them scared very much, thus living life with a cold mask. What Young said about "they do not need forgiveness, but consolation" more or less sums it up. I find it simple but sad and touching at the same time too, reminding them how lonely they actually are. And yet when they find each other like this they manage to let go some of those feelings slowly but surely.
At the moment I feel bad for Jin Sung and Hee Sun. There's no greater pain for Jin Sung to see Hee Sun running after Soo (he may as well turn into Moo Chul junior as story goes by, I'm afraid). And it's also painful for Hee Sun to love a man who killed her sister but she can't stop her feelings.

I don't understand myself why episode 8 made me cry quite much. Maybe because I feel the tense, the climax is coming, Soo talking and doing that since he only has 31 days left, and Young is getting even more sick? But that preview is again very, very interesting. I so can't wait for the next episode. T_T
Everything's tangled into one, so confusing. Top #1 curiosity per today will be Moo Chul.
Just watched the latest episode, i guess it was full of "fan service". The plot did not really thicken in this chapter, it was hinted just like you said phio, especially with Soo´s voice-over and him admitting that he will be extremely hurt by this facade.
Everyone seems to dislike or even hate Moo Chul but i like his character. His actions do make sense to me, considering what he lost and that he will die soon.
I read reviews/recaps from other websites and how viewers were rather uncomfortable with the closeness of Soo and Young as siblings. I'm not sure myself since I don't have an elder brother, but if they're the only ones they have for each other, who they trust, to be a bit closer than usual isn't very surprising, no? Especially since Young is blind so all she can do is touch to know more about her brother.
That is a tough nut to crack. To tell you the truth, i do think that it is a bit awkward, considering that they are both adults. While kissing on the cheek is pretty normal in my culture, sleeping together, hugging from behind and so forth are things that a couple do, and not siblings, unless of course they have a space problem in the house. On the other hand, i do think that it makes sense. Oh Soo does not love her as a sibling but as a woman while Young has never felt any warmth and love since her childhood. She pretty much stayed a child mentally. Furthermore, it has actually been addressed in the drama itself. Secretary Wang was furious after learning that they have slept together in one bed while Oh Soo informed Young that even though she is his sibling, he also is still a man. So, i don´t really have a problem with that. I don´t think that it is because of her blindness though. Of course there are scenes that can be explained with that (for example her wanting to know how he looks, so she touches his face and so forth) but the hugging around, sleeping together don´t really have anything to do with that.
I've seen a few episodes of this series - I don't have the main characters names off the top off my head but it was really a sad scene where
the main female lead's brother was killed. I'm not sure if I will follow the series but it has caught my interest.
I hope you'll continue and I hope that you'll like it too, Charlie! The cast is amazing, in my opinion, even if the plot is sometimes strange, maybe. ^^;
Latest episodes are.. sad for me. Everyone knows the secret, everyone holds back, getting their cards ready, someone is ready to die more than ever while the other one finally admits the hope to live... They fight, they try to live to the fullest, with complications here and there. It's entangled together that I'm not sure how this will end. T__T
Highlight of episode 15 part 2 is most definitely the laugh of (forgot his name) - Lawyer someone.
There are so many kind people (just as much as they are corrupt) in That Winter, The Wind Blows. Then the random ads that show get annoying - makes me wish I had Korean Cable.
This drama feels realistic, much like the drama - The World We Live In (ironically, I think the female lead was also in it).
It's ending soon... One more episode. Need to prepare myself for this week!
I'm afraid for the ending, you have no idea!
Anyway, it was a fun ride.
Yes. I finished watching Episode 16 last night. What did you think about it?
