This is the story of two women, Seo Jung Eun and Han Yoo Kyung, who go on very different paths to get their wishes. Seo Jung Eun is a strong and brave woman who has suffered a difficult life, having grown up in an orphanage, but still accepts the people around her despite the yearning for affection for herself. Jung Eun is hopeful that he will find his mother if he becomes a star, striving to achieve his goal and overcome his suffering with his pure and innocent nature.

In contrast, Han Yoo Kyung has a birth secret that he wants to undo in order to get revenge. "Thorn birds" in the title refer to the character of Jung Eun, who only brings out the best at the cost of great pain. A hawthorn bird is a mythical bird that seeks a thorn tree from the day of its birth. When it finds it, the bird perches on the most pointed spine, and surpasses the agony to sing the most beautiful song ever heard before. Han Hye Jin Joo Sang Wook

The plot, as it always made me very attractive when I read it and decided to see it. The first chapters are quite attractive and trained, but there comes a time when the series becomes somewhat slow and too dramatic. Yoo Kyung's bad drama, to call it somehow, is an absolutely obnoxious character who is in the drama just to annoy the protagonist non-stop in all she can and more. I know that his pain and what is behind the character justifies something his actions, but I do not care how unfortunate he was too, the things he does not use and I kept hating him until the end hahaha

As I have In the romantic story, the third and hateful one in discord seems to have more protagonism than the own protagonist, at the same time as the plot is entetenida and hooks, from the half, it becomes veryyy slow ...

like the third in discord of this love quartet, who passes a little through history without pain or glory. In spite of this, the romantic plot also has its beautiful romantic moments (a little scarce) between the two protagonists.

About the characters, well good in general are quite solid and deep, because everyone has their past and its history, but it gives me the feeling that they should have developed a little more or at least have drawn more party or importance in the plot.

The actors that have done an impeccable performance and that gives points to the drama. The BSO however I have seen something bland, because it was always the same song over and over again, and if anything else but I do not know it has become repetitive.

As you can see, I have a bittersweet feeling with this drama, since on the one hand I liked the story in general is nice and entertaining, but the way of telling it has made me a bit tedious, seeing chapter after chapter practically nothing progress the plot, and all the while see the unfortunate which is the protagonist.
