A Tearjerker for sure...
29 January 2020 | by azetkhasanovaSee all my reviews

I don't know what to say.I came into this drama knowing what to expect,but couldn't imagine how hard it would hit me to the stomach."Stairway to Heaven" is a classic of its own,that takes over the list of star-crossing love-story over all other love-stories that have been aired in Korea and throughout Asia.Every 20 episodes is worth it...you live into their world of splendid happiness,pain,heartbreak,grief,hate,jealousy and bitter-sweet love that easily destroys the individs "Stairway to Heaven" is surronded by.The cast is simply amazing,and in my mind Choi Ji-Wo and Kwon Sang-Woo and Shin Hyun Joon are the true stars in the drama,all of their performances are heartfelt and expressive.All of them shined together on-screen,and delivered amazingly.By the way,i found the main-characters Jung-suh and Song-joo very beautiful together,wheww what a mind-blowing chemistry they have!!!

Jung-suh (played by Choi Ji Wo) is an admirable heroine with her heart on her sleeve.Every man easily could fall in love with her,as her beauty is inside and out.Her strength and bravery and care-free nature is what lures Song-joo into her net,he is her beloved child-hood friend..and her lover and soulmate.Even falling into the clutches of amnesia,her heart still belonged to Song-joo.

"From the moment i saw you,i thought you were Jung-Suh and that thought hasn't changed at all...I look like a crazy fool,huh?I think i am gonna go crazy,I don't think i can live anymore!What should i do?What do i have to do?Do something to me!" - Song Joo

Song-joo (played by Kwon Sang Woo) is a hero to die for and i love him so so so much.The actor playing him is so deliciously handsome,and showed the eternal love and longing Song-joo have towards Jung-suh so well that i cried for him.He can't live without her,and we all root for him to find his beloved Jung-suh again,after she was so cruelly taken away from him.
