    i'm watching this serie right now and have finished 6 eps. I think this serie is quite good. Many dramas and love stories between the characters. I haven't watched many korean series but so far the story hasn't too much focused on love yet where other series I've seen are.


    The story goes like this this main male character
    (Lee Byeung Hun) grow up with his uncle's family. His uncle is a gambler and as a child his uncle takes him everywhere to cheat people. When his uncle and him were on one of their trip they met a young girl on a train. This girl (a young Song Hye Gyo played by another actrice) lost her mother and went to live with her father who is a gamle addict and own some people's money.
    Later on this girl and the boy would meet again and became friends. When her father died and she got kidnapped by some gang members the boy came to the rescue with some friends. One of his friends got beaten up severely and end up in the hospital. So the boy and one of his friend (a rich boy) want to take revenge and set fire on the gang's base. They end up being caught by the police. The boy went to jail and the rich boy got free because he's got some laywers. While he spend his time in jail she lived as an apprentice (?) in a children shelter. The rich boy went to the states to study.
    Later on they would meet in a casino again where all three of them worked there. There's another female character but she hasn't had many scenes yet.

    Do you know the name of actress who played as young Angela? She looks so pure and quiet, but Song Hae Gyo is very different, she is more lively. She doesn't look as the young girl before.
    But Lee Byung Hun is always great and the young boy is also great.

    I've searched for more info about this serie. I don't know their names either, of all the korean actors/actrices only two names stand out, Song Hye Gyo and Won Bin cos Autumn story was the first korean serie i've watched and at that time was searching for more info about it and their names appeared a lot. But have difficulties remembering their names cos unlike hk stars they don't have English names.

    but in All In
    Lee Byung Hun plays the main male character
    Ji Sung plays the rich kid
    Park Sol Mi plays the other female character, daughter from a casino owner
    and Song Hye Gyo as the female lead

    some screenshots

    there are more photos on that site but only posted some of the best
    I'm only up to eps 6 and there isn't a love triangle yet but i'm sure there will be one between Lee Byung Hun, Ji Sung and Song Hye Gyo. The girl likes Lee Byung Hun and yes he's the main character. I already know some of the story lines but don't want to put too much info cos some want to see it themselves.
    And forget to mention I haven't found the names who plays the young versions of them, though they played quite large part of the serie.

    Does anyone else find that All In is quite a sad series? The main character in the series, he lives such a hard and unlucky life. I feel so bad for him.

    Wink

    i already watched it
    in my opinion, half of this sery was really nice, especially the love between song he kyo n lee byung heun, but after half past, the story went slowly, n quite boring

    but, the ending is good n this film is worth watching
    so give it a try

    I just finished chapter 13 and I'm so relieved to find out that In-Ha (I don't know his real name) doesn't die! The relationship that he has with Angela is very sad though...they always get torn apart somehow. I can't wait to see what happens later on in the series.

    I finally finished All In and boy was this series addictive...I couldn't stop watching it! The ending was quite rushed though. The love between In-Ha and Angela played out very well, but the whole hotel business part of it...wow...it was like bam, bam, bam...and then it was over. Did anyone else feel this way? Plus, the ending didn't really say what happened to the other characters like Jung-Won and Jin-Hee. I want a sequel for this just because the ending was ended so abruptly...but what could they really talk about in the sequel right? Maybe develop Jung-Won and Jin-Hee's relationship? I don't know.

    I have never heard any infos about sequels. Who is spreading these silly rumours??

    All In had budgeting problem... actors and actress didn't get paid on time.. some dispute went on.
    Two main couples became real life couples and so on.

    Drama itself, I didn't find it really attrative. That is just me.

    No wonder the ending was so lacking. Many issues left unresolved . Would have also like to see a wedding or some type of romantic proposal .

    Which two main characters went out in real life? Do u mean the actors who played In-Ha and Angela?

    The budgeting problem really explains the rushed ending.

    Actually, I understanded 2 relationships were started from All-in.

    Lee Byung Hun is dating Song Hye Gyo and the 2 supporting actor and actress are also dating.

    Would rather see a wedding for an ending, but I was satisfied to seeing them together.

    WOW! Are those two couples still going out? Those two couples are so cute together!

    Song Hye Gyo and Lee Byung Hun are really big actors in terms of Korean series, correct? I know Song Hye Gyo must be huge since she's one of the top female leads, but this is the first time I've seen Lee Byung Hun. I've still to watch Beautiful Days which stars him as well.

    I've been looking around and I heard that Lee Byung Hun and Song Hye Gyo are going to get married soon! He's 33 and she's 21...wow...but I'm so happy for them if it's true. I think they make a real cute couple.
