Foreign Drama -Smile Donghae

Smile Donghae 2010-2011 Hulu 159 episodes +3 I started watching this drama because Ji Chang Wook was the star.  I was hesitant, with so many episodes.  I just don’t like more than 30 episodes, or they add too much fill, that makes me batty. With the exception of Empress Ki.  No, I didn’t watch every episode of Empress Ki (also starring Ji Chang Wook) but it was because those episodes were just to gut wrenching for me to sit through. So, I stayed with this drama, skipping a couple here and there after about 71 episodes.  Oh, my gosh -was it long!!!! Why did I rate this with only a 3, when Chang Wook was in it?  Simple, Anna! Yes, Do Ji Won was fantastic at portraying a mentally challenged woman.  However, her character was either crying, acting like a very young child (that could not possibly raise a child on her own), or screaming James, over and over and over and over.  I wanted to tape her mouth shut!  How can anybody pull off …
