Story: About 4 daughters (Deokchill, Seolchill, Michill & Ttengchill) who are raised by a very strict soldier father, the oldest one has a hard marriage w/out love she ends up divorcing and finds a new life for herself; Seolchill (a strong & softhearted woman)(there is a secret surrounding her) she works as a soldier at the army base where Hanam (Park Hae Jin) first meets her (Hanam was the whole reason that kept me watching this drama - his character was practically perfect - he was so sweet and loving, sincere and the type who would never give up on his love - I loved him to pieces); Michill who is a very stubborn willful girl who speaks her mind - she considers it being honest while others take it as being rude (which it kinda is) she eventually^^ grows up ;) She goes after Ilhan to spite her sister Seolchill but in the process ends up falling in love with him (she was Ilhans first love). then there is Ttengchill - might I say the most absent minded one of the bunch? lol, she'd crack me up, I'd roll my eyes at how stupid she could be half the time haha - she winds up pregnant by mr.player/mama's boy Taeja (Lee Seung Gi) and they get married and go through ups and downs in there marriage while learning to adapt and mature together (p.s there is a side romance with Taeja's mother & Ilhan's uncle^^).
Cast: My favorite couple was Seolchill & Hanam after them it would be Taeja & Ttengchill.
Music: about 5 songs I remember... the theme song, 2 ballad songs, I song I can't find, and & "One Summer Night, I summer dream" song & besides the 2 songs the cast sang on the drama "ttengbal" "honeybee" (Taeja's family) and "step step you don't know what you got until it's gone" the grandma's regular song lol (they will stick in your head and you'll start singing along with them - wish I could find them)
I thought this drama had a good pace, there were a few characters that were in a few episodes that I didn't like and wish would disappear and luckily they do ;) one I remember the most and really didn't like was a navy officer that Seolchill's dad introduces her to - ugh the most boring man on the planet - and he actually thought he was romantic yuck. (when he talked I thought of something I NEVER think of when I listen to people - i thought he'd be horrible in ____ (i'll leave it to your imagination lol)).
I really loved the last 10 mins of the show lol the things that happened in the span of 3yrs was just too funny ;)
Re-watch value: 7.0 it's a family drama and long - but i wouldn't mind re-watching Hanam's scenes over and over again <3
