I mean, after raising a child for 15 years, you suddenly cut all ties to that said child and just switch them back as easy as that? Really? Following that revelation, a heart wrenching separation occurs and even later, the introduction of “forbidden love.’’ After switching back the child Yoon Joon Suh family left states where Eun-suh is left behind with her real parent. What will happen to Jun-suh and Eun-suh's glue-like relationship?
I couldn't help but cry a lot during this drama. The story was sad and moving. It made me feel like everyone can overcome all obstacles as long as you stick together. Of course the romance in the drama can be considered "forbidden love" but it's really a love you wish could be accepted. It was beautifully played. With so much affection from all the characters, the realization of wrong, and the wishing that the past could be changed, created a story was very good.
There was innocence, concern, anger, revenge; there was everything in this drama and each character's personality was portrayed perfectly. Eun-suh had a very innocent and pure look to her and she was unbelievably sweet in her role. Each time she shed a tear, I found myself shedding one too. If I'm correct, this is the actress's first major role in a drama and I was not left disappointed. Eun-suh’s ability in the story really moved me. Apart from being incredibly handsome, Jun-suh showed great acting. You could see the emotions in his face and you could see his confusion and desire to be with the one he truly loved. Han Tae-seok without a doubt was a brilliant and gorgeous. I feel in love with his generosity and his willingness to let the woman he loved go to give her happiness. Enough with the characters I loved…now for the ones I HATED! Who played as Shin-ae was so good at being the villain, I just hated her (in this case it's a good thing)! When she was jealous, you hated her, when she acted in revenge, you hated her, when she showed up and opened her mouth, you hated her! I hated her and damn, she played a good villain! The next one was Jun-suh's fiancé Shin Yu-mi she pissed me off trying to destroy a love that could not be imperfect in the past. Her ways to keep her man from leaving her were just plain wrong, but it did bring more drama to the story.
The drama was 16 episodes. Which in each episodes you are moved by the drama. Autumn Tale provided good drama and romance. I was really rooting for the love between characters to be accepted regardless of how wrong it may have been in the eyes of society. The love triangle that was established was well focused on and there weren't many interruptions from another character to make it confusing or less serious (emotionally). The problems the characters faced brought a lot of drama to the story. But it was good drama, the kind that will cause you to use up about half of your tissue box. Since the drama is sorrowful, the background music played well with the drama and blended in with the season, autumn. The music is morose and smooth that even without watching the drama, you feel depressed listening to it because your imagination (at least mine) goes off on tangents with glimpses of sorrow.
I liked this drama. It really moved me since the story dealt with "forbidden love." The two characters were beautiful together and the fact that their being together made other people in their lives uncomfortable made me feel that they should keep fighting! I'd recommend this for the ladies. This drama is a bit sentimental; if you know what I mean, so get those tissues ready. I would recommend the guys to watch this with their girlfriends because it'd be pretty interesting but the turn off is that the girls might expect too much from the guys afterwards, remarks such as, "Why can't you be more like him?" or something of the sort might be thrown out there. Guys probably wouldn't want to be compared it.
