My Love Eun Dong Korean Drama Review

My Love Eun Dong Korean Drama - Joo Jin Mo and Kim Sa Rang

My Love Eun Dong is a romance drama about two lovers, Park Hyun Soo (Joo Jin Mo) and Ji Eun Dong (Kim Sa Rang).  They meet as teenagers and again in their twenties, but are separated both times.  The story follows their third meeting when they are in their thirties.

My Love Eun Dong has the feel of a sweeping romance.  It was so easy to become invested with Hyun Soo and Eun Dong as teenagers because their love story was so adorable and pure.  I actually wouldn’t have minded a couple more episodes of them when they were this age.

When they meet again in their twenties, the true romance blossoms immediately.  It’s easy to get swept up in their young love.  Of course, their reunion is all too short since Eun Dong soon disappears again, leaving behind a despondent Hyun Soo.

Another ten long years pass.  We now find that Hyun Soo has become a popular actor and goes by the name Ji Eun Ho.  He has waited for Eun Dong all these years, and he has finally decided to publish a book to tell their love story.  He hires a ghostwriter to do the book for him…and that ghostwriter just happens to be Eun Dong!  But we quickly learn that she was in an accident ten years ago and has no memory of Eun Ho.  She is also married to a disabled man and has a child.

Her world is eventually turned upside down writing Eun Ho’s book, which of course is all about her.  Bits and pieces of memories creep back in, and she is unable to deny the feelings for Eun Ho that are being stirred up inside of her.

You are always aware of Eun Ho and Eun Dong’s true love.  Their chemistry is amazing.  Also the music and the visuals just carry you away into their love story.

But things are messy and complicated in this drama.  Eun Dong has lived ten years of her life with another man and child.  And that man was directly responsible for separating our two lovers.  Despite this, I actually had no problem sympathizing with her husband, Choi Jae Ho (Kim Tae Hoon)…and not just because he was disabled.

The way I viewed it was that yes, he did something completely horrible to both Eun Dong and Eun Ho.  In an act of desperation, he stole Eun Ho’s only love.  But he began paying for that from the moment of the car accident.  And when the truth comes to light, he pays even more.  With that said, the truth is his character goes much deeper than just being a villain.  He did do wrong, but he did love Eun Dong and their son.  He was also a good father.  He makes some more wrong decisions in order to try and keep his family, but I don’t think anything he did was easy for him.

He struggled as his family slipped away, and ultimately, he fully understood what he did was wrong.  He even did his best to set things back to the way they should be.   Does that excuse what he did?  No, it doesn’t.  But it shows that he was not bad deep down.   He was a good man who did some terrible things, but in the end he tried to make amends.

A lot of people didn’t care for the ending of this drama, but I loved it.  From start to finish this drama swept me away in to a magnificent love story.  It gave me complicated characters that really made me think.  In the end, I was more than satisfied.  What do you think?  Were you happy with the ending or did you want to see more justice?

My Rating: 8.5/10

    I’ve just discovered your site, and am so impressed with the amount of work and thought you’ve put into it – thank you! My Love Eun Dong was the first k-drama I ever saw, and though I’ve seen over 200 since then, this still holds up very well as a pure love story. It’s unfortunate that the beautiful Kim Sa Rang has had so few leading roles. I notice that a lot of endings are weak, as if the writers are ready to go home, and don’t have to worry about keeping audiences interested, but once in a while, an ending is special. In this one at the end, as they’re walking away, he says, “Could you make me breakfast?” She says, “of course”. He says, “I don’t mean just this morning.” She says, “I’ll make you breakfast for the rest of your life.” I thought that was such a nice line to close the series.

    I haven’t thoroughly looked at your site, but so far haven’t seen a way to sort your reviews by rating. You seem to have somewhat similar taste to mine rating the dramas in the reviews I’ve seen, but it would be really useful to be able to scan your ratings from top to bottom. It’s gotten to the point where I hate to watch an average drama – something needs to be special and out of the ordinary. It would be nice to be able to focus immediately on your highest rated dramas. Thanks again for your effort!

      Hi NickSJ! I’m thrilled that you found your way to this site and can’t thank you enough for such thoughtful words 🙂 I seriously appreciate it!

      Oh wow, what a wonderful drama my Love Eun Dong would be for a first kdrama. I too have seen hundreds of dramas and still think it’s such a wonderful love story. I truly loved it and really wish that style of drama was still popular so more would be made. I usually have to watch older dramas to get the same type of feels.

      And I know what you mean about the endings. Kdramas really seem to like to have these sort of open endings where you just kind of feel like there should be more. I also really liked this one’s ending and thought it just left things on such a nice note 🙂

      It’s nice to know we have a similar taste in dramas 🙂 After a lot of requests, I did add a Recommendations page to the site last year (you can find it here: that lists my dramas rated 10, 9, & 8. Those are what fall into my great to love category so hopefully that can help steer you away from some of the more average ones, hehe 🙂

    Sorry I didn’t look at your whole site before asking for something you already have! I don’t know if you watch Chinese dramas, but Story of Yanxi Palace also has some great lines at the end. It’s so nice when dramas close perfectly!

      No problem at all 🙂 I don’t watch a lot of Chinese dramas, but occasionally one will come along that grabs my attention…and that one right now happens to be Story of Yanxi Palace! hehe I’m watching it at a more casual pace, but I’m 27 eps into that one and am loving it! I’m super hit or miss with cdramas, but this one ticks all of the right boxes and am I’m really glad I gave it a go so far 🙂
