Why didn't I start watching this darma earlier? I even though that I shoudln't watch it because I though it would be so typical. Yes, I was stupid. First of all the name of the drama "Who Are You" is very suitable because this phrase is said so often. "Who are you? Yeah, who is he. He really doesn't have a clear answer and when he finds out he still can't really answer. But it's always so interesting hwne they ask "Who are you?" I don't knwo how to describe it bettter, it's just interesting.

When I got this drama by mail I thought I would watch only 1st episode but I ended up watching 1-5. I couldn't stop. This is so damn addicting. You may think that thsi is just another silly comedy from teh secription and pictures but its' not. Thsi is not justa joke, this is something MUCH bigger. I felt like from the very beginning this drama had some melancholic air about it. Still, I was actually taken a aback when I understood that this is not pure comedy with a little tragedy in it but a serious drama spiced up with rather absurd humor. Now that I have watched more I noticed how deep this drama actually is. It's not just some silly comedy but everyone has such deep thoughts and plot is not that clear, there are some secrets. And dad possessing Seung Hyo is not dealt as a mere funny joke but his doings have serious consequences, boy do I like it. Though I took a peek at further episodes and noticed that he will actually be able to see dad soon so dunno what turn will that make. I still find this drama rather very realistic and I like that realistic touch very much.

Wee hee, isn't he cute^^

and HOT?

It's really impossible not to love Yoon Kye Sang. Ha ha xD Those scenes when he tried to run away from hospital cracked me up. I was laughing so hard xD I'm still laughing, in fact. His running style *pfffff* That face, that overreacted stupid smile xD The dad style really doesn't suit him xD But when he is himself he is funny too. He is cold but he likes to shout and his temper is really short and what's with that cleanliness xD "There is a hair here" xD ho ho ho! Yoon Kye Sang always gets great roles. I just remembered him in Flying Boys on my way back home. I dunno, for some reason I just think about that movie sometiems. I liked it very much back them. "Your breathe smells like... oranges"

He was so much better as himself than the father. But I think when he was in father's role he was amazing. It didn't suit him because it was so not him. Bu his acting was very similar to Kang Nam Gil's as father. It was so amazing when I noticed even some same expressions on their faces. I felt like Yoon Kye Sang had watched and studied Kang Nam Gil's role pretty closely. It was really funny how father's silly acting as father didn't feel weird but when Seung Hyo acted his way it was overly funny. All overacted expressions and stupid running style and everything, it made me laugh so muchos xD But Yoon Kye Sang as himself was amazing too. All his expressions, I really felt chills when he glared^^ So cool.

The only character I really can't stand so far is Young In. Go Ah Ra is an ok actress but Young In is so hostile toward her father. I can somehow understand why she hated him so much and when you start hating and take that attitude it's almost impossible to change. But I wish they had showed me why exactly did she hate him so much? This situation is so similar to Powerful Opponents. The girl hated her family but her family LOVED her too much in fact. I'm trying to say that... then turn her father into something hateful. But when he loved her so much and she hated him so much, it feel kinda weird. Also after his death she was so sure that it wasn't a suicide but then she suddenly decided it was a suicide and kept saying "I hate him, I hate him, I hate him" she always says I hate him. It's annoying. Also, what she is doing to her friends it's incredibly unfair and mean. Why do they always do this in Kdramas? If you have friends then depend on them for God's shake. Or then tell them and explain your situation. And why doesn't she eat anything? Of course, that would make her feel dizzy all the time. I really hope they would quit that "poor princess" crap. And since Seung Hyo is so pitiful in a way how is Young In supposed to change him if she acts heartbroken and weak all the time.

This guy is charming. I would describe him as something like Gong Yoo + Lee Jun Ki, he he. It's a pleasure watch him. His acting is sensitive and he is good at expression his feelings with his eyes. I also like his character Jae Ha a lot. I know he has done bad things or rather, I suspect he has done BAD things and his motive is dirty but I still like him. I want him to fall for Young In and fall hard. That would teach him a lesson, teach him good. Jae Ha isn't far from Seung Hyo. They both lack in feelings. It's just that Seung Hyo isn't able to express his feelings at all. He is like ice. He has simply forgotten how to feel. But Jae He is far, far more wicked and phony. He knows how to express his feelings and how to be nice and how to cheat. He is playing with feelings and that's worse than just being cold.

I think I will never get enough of Yoon Kye Sang's exaggerated expressions "possessed by dad" style.

*TANG* And he is not himself anymore xD When he finally escaped from the hospital and sat in the taxi his expressions was... well, let's just say "Worth remembering"

I laughed so much when Young In came from bathroom and saw him folding her underwear. "I feel so warm when I touch your underwear" xD It was so funny. Also when he later took all the porno tapes and they fell from his pants at SO wrong moment xD
