Left- Handed Wife is an interesting series that comes with different emotions...anger, love, disappointment, hatred and all. The drama aimed to portray the greed and selfish acts of human and the length they would go to achieve what they want. And in doing this, the innocents ones are the one to suffer for what they know nothing about.
It also tries to show the beauty of love between Oh San-na and So hoo who are so devoted to one another and how their love was able to stand the test of time. At a point, I felt so sad Oh San-na as her husband suddenly went missing, only for him to come back in another face with no memory of his past. I was left wondering about how his wife was going to recognise him when they meet....and the irony of it all was he coming back with the face of a man that ruined her family.
As the series progresses, shocking secrets are exposed, puzzles pieced together would leave your mouth wide open. The drama is filled with suspense, you just want to know what is going to happen next. The story line is not so different from the normal Kdrama series but has some very nice scenes that you may likely want to see more than once. The cast performance was okay as they made good use of their screen time...I liked Oh San-na especially, great display of emotions and a nice transition from a young girl to a married woman.
So guys, if you are looking to see a Kdrama series you can add this on your watch list but not neccessarily a "must watch".
