There are many things that may get your attention from this drama, specially if you enjoy realistic melodrama in which you don’t have clear overwhelming evilness, but pure human nature and the troubles that come between marriages and adult relationships.
The clear thing is that everyone makes mistakes and anyone can have a bad relationship in their lives, but to what extend are they willing to fight for what they think is worth it. These drama is also known as “A Word From Warm Heart” and it describes perfectly the main theme of the whole story.
Couples that have forgotten how to be gentle with each other, and only focus in their own needs without even stop to thinking how does the person that lives by their side feels. Mature and realistic situations, although you might think some of the characters have a huge amount of bad luck, but you will have to get to that point first.

Starring in One Warm Word Korean Drama
Han Hye Jin (Be Strong Geum Soon!, The Thorn Birds, Syndrome) is Na Eun Jin, this woman that thought her secret was safe but discovers that her cheating husband is about to learn the truth from an incident cause by someone close to her lover’s family. She loses her tools to demand love from her husband so the story switches from one place to another. She’s used to play dramatic roles, I don’t particularly like her way of delivering, and this time it wasn’t the exception.
Ji Jin Hee (Blood, The Great Seer, Take Care of Us Captain) is Yoo Jae Hak, a successful businessman that runs a company and doesn’t have time to deal with his wife’s demands but he does have time to have an affair with Eun Jin. He’s a cold character that will have to learn a lot through this journey when his wife discovers the truth. Another great job from this talented actor.
Kim Ji Su (Gangnam Blues, Sisters in Love, Love Again) is Song Mi Kyung, a devoted wife that has been psychologically abused by her mother-in-law for years, and tried to fulfill all her demands. Tired and with a cold hearted husband that never pays attention to her, she discovers he had an affair and decides to approach Eun Jin as a friend without revealing her true identity at first. A great and hard role for this talented actress, she was my favorite here.
Lee Sang Woo (Feast of the Gods, Glorious Day, Goddess of Marriage) is Kim Sung Soo, Eun Jin’s husband. He spends his time and money dating other women and she discovers it. He will be in the spot until his wife’s affair is discovered. By then, everything changes. He always delivers what’s needed but nothing else.

If you enjoy love affair dramas, then this one is one of the best I’ve seen. With the setup completely focused in the facts and not beating around the bush with unclear situations. What I liked the most of it is that almost all characters were straight forward, and in these kind of situations, that’s the best anyone can be. There is suffering, unfairness and several unexplained attitudes, but in the end, we learn, that everyone is human.
