Very nice K-drama
20 February 2013 | by overseer-3See all my reviews

I enjoyed Brilliant Legacy aka Shining Inheritance very much. It's from 2009 and features a great cast and interesting story. It is available to watch with English subtitles on Instant Netflix.

The actor who plays the autistic teen brother was the highlight for me in this series. He was brilliant at showing the inner world of autism. If you have a family member with autism you will definitely be touched by his storyline.

The music soundtrack is perfect for this series. I wish American television could produce something as inspiring and compelling as Shining Inheritance or other top-notch K-dramas I have watched, like I'm Sorry, I Love You, 49 Days, Autumn Sonata, etc. All we ever get are boring reality shows.
