Many Koreans believe in superstitious things. Although modernization embraces Korean life in many fields, Korea cares and believes in fortune-telling, shamans, important dates, and relation with the ancestors. Shim Bo-nui believes in a Shaman and follows his directions in order to heal her sister instead of believing in the Korean health care system which is very advanced.

5. Lots of comedy scenes

Other than the romantic relationship between the leading male and female characters, the stories amongst the supporting cast are also worth watching and are quite funny. Ryang Ha’s character, played by comedian Jung Sang-hoon, and his interaction with Lee Dal-nim is funny and hilarious.
