Endless Love Series: Autumn Tale in My Heart (Korean Drama 2000)


Yoon Joon Suh and Yoon Eun Suh grew up as siblings but Eun Suh was in fact from a different family as there was a mix up at the hospital where she was born. The switch came to light when Eun Suh was involved in a car accident and it was discovered that her blood type was different from her parents. Eun Suh’s life took a complete turn when the two girls were returned to their respective families. Soon after, the Yoon family left for the States and Eun Suh was left living in sordid condition with her real family in Korea. Years after, Joon Suh returned to Korea and by chance the two former siblings were reunited.

Words from Me:

The first in the Endless Love drama installment directed by Yoon Seok-Ho is the famous drama Autumn Tale in My Heart. This was the drama were Song Hye Kyo and Song Seun Heon’s fame went skyrocket.

Honestly, I’m not much of a fan when it comes to heavy melodrama because I tend to get carried away with all the melancholic stuff happening on screen but then this drama got to me back in the early 2000 where KDramas were still scarce in my country and so… I just could not resist. It became too hard to ignore that I had to seat the whole drama through and finish it up to the last episode. I am kind of proud to say that I only cried once around the ending part. Heh.

It wasn’t much like the melodrama I have encountered lately whereas in every episode I can’t stop crying out loud in sadness and in pity. Basically this drama was something more on the side of a frustrating watch along with a sense of bittersweet romanticism all throughout the show. If it’s possible to pull out all my hair during the first half of the drama I would have done so because it has that redundancy of I’m-not-yours-you’re-not-mine-we’re-not-meant-for-each-other-so-let’s-just-forget-about-everything then it will go back to the same old I-know-you-love-me-and-we-love-each-other-so-let’s-stay-together-and-forget-everything-else.

Having that out, why on earth am I recommending this?

Because this drama is worth the sound track, worth the background, worth seeing Song Hye Kyo in her younger years.

The root of the story line may have been too much of a cliche. Does having babies exchanged at birth even new in a drama? Ehem! However the overall concept of the story is worth the watch. The characters within the story and the actor’s portrayal of their roles were amazing that I was able to feel all the love, the hurt and the desperation.

I say give it a try because it’s just that good despite its short comings.
