This drama started amazing. Till the 20th episode I was waiting for it to come out ( I saw it while airing). But then I started to wonder: "What is the meaning of this drama?"
The cast was good indeed, Eugene is a good actress in my opinion, and also the male lead and the other actors made a very good job, but, it ain't nothing to do because the story was read more a flop.
As I said, when I reached the 20th I started to wonder "so now I have other 30 episodes to watch, what can happen next?"
The thing is, you think it would bring something new every week, but actually nothing happens. Oh, well, nothing GOOD happens.
From the 20th to the 50th episode I skipped some parts because characters were boring, and their actions too.
They put in too much drama sterotypes, and that's good for a 16 episodes drama, but not for a very long drama like this one (50 episodes).
So, it is not like I didn't like it, but I felt as if because of the number of episodes they were just ruining the characters and the plot too.
It is a drama that shows life and everyday problems, but it gets boring from the middle till the end.
I think it could be a nice drama if it was shorter.

I hate to write a review when I haven't watched EVERY second of every episode.... But I'd have to say this drama is at least worth a look-see or at LEAST a Dsk* for Lee Jung-Jin's smile alone. I also feel that Jung Bo-Suk and Jeon In-Hwa were really sweet.

In the beginning, I was truly intrigued by the main characters, but as the story unfolded the villain's scenes became insufferably long read more and irritating and the response from the ones who were wronged became unbelievable and unrealistic. How many times are you gonna say, "If you don't leave me alone, I'm gonna call the police.", before you actually CALL the police or get a restraining order, (if restraining orders exist in Korea)?

I truly couldn't stomach much more than 40 some episodes before I started Dsking*. I think I started suffering at about 28 episodes.

Cut in half and tying up loose ends would have really made this SO much better!

*Dsk/Dsking - My words for when you've watched enough of the drama to be know the gist of the story, but fast-forward through long drawn-out crying, wailing, reflective and unnecessary back-flashes, ridiculous screaming/fighting scenes or irrelevant and irritating side plots because you can't stomach it. OR in extreme instances skip to the last episode. LOL...

I really love this drama. I watched this drama over and over again. It's a family drama and the cast are all good. You can feel that they're a real family. I'm not really into a long episode drama but if you're a korean drama fan this drama is a MUST. The OST's are great. Chemistry between Lee min jung and Jung kyung ho was really amazing!!! You will laugh and cry. Get angry with the other characters but all in all it's a very very good family drama.

Both dramas are more than 30 eps. Both have the whole birth secret storyline and they deal with inheritance of a family company.

    It took me 2,5 years to finish this, but I'm glad I did. Some parts are really dragging or more like slapping your forehead aweful, but the overall story is pretty good. I think this series would have been better with about 20 episodes or so less, but this is what we got. Ending is considering the entire story satisfying, although a tad unrealistic. But hey, that's dramaland right ;)

    I am really a sucker for dramas like this coz I like My Daughter SeoYoung, New Tales of Gisaeng, Yellow Boots, and now A Hundred Year's Inheritance. Those makjang elements just make you feel addictive to those dramas.
    Going back to the review, I think the casts acting is great, I hated Chul Gyu evil MIL, SIL character so much. They are so annoying but it would be boring without them as well. I don't really like how Eugene character is so weak most of the time, she did stand up for herself but still appear so naive and forgiving for me. Regardless, I like the relationship Lee JungJin and Eugene has in this drama.

    I hope this isn't a spoiler, but I loved the birdcage and I felt like it was a well placed symbol. I decided not to listen to the commentators and watch it for myself to decide whether it's good or not. I am a supporter of Eugene's acting so I couldn't resist either.

    After spending time to read all the comments and reviews above, I decided not to watch this. Because it's too long, because I heard it's very stressful. People need to watch more entertaining ones than this since that's the main purpose.
    By the way I'm confused about the ratings, it got 1st places almost all of the episodes o.O
    (yes I'm the type of person who doesn't want to go watch drama directly without reading something first lol)

    I've just finished watching this drama and honestly I'm glad it's over. If it wasn't for Lee Jung Jin I probably would have given upon it at the very beginning. It's very long, most of the time badly written and truthfully boring and predictable. I skipped quit a lot of parts because I got bored.
    Still just because it didn't fit my taste doesn't mean other people won't like it. There are certainly funny parts in it as well.

    The most frustrating drama ever. It starts off real good & then it went downhill. I felt like a fool because i watched all 50 episodes. I couldn't stop watching...I felt like the writers owed me a good ending after putting me through hell ( I kept hitting the pause button during episodes out of frustration). In the end i got screwed. Worst drama EVER!!!!

    very nice drama, and a good acting to all the characters min chae- won and lee se- yeon have a nice chemistry together,,and all it so funny.. very advisable to watch to anyone it didn't waste your time..............only one thing disappoint me where Lee Se-Yeon lost his sense of taste i really hope that he will regain his sense of taste with Min Chae-Won by his side..and they love each other but it really didnt happen until to the last episode.. i didnt say this to discourage you to watch this.. it only keeps a mark in my mind that i want to erase...(ae-gooo0)...

    This drama was irritating all the way through only to have a very unsatisfying ending. Put me in a bad mood the whole time I watched. Had to leave it before I came back just to find out what happened in the end. Skipped a lot of the scenes too.

    I really liked this drama during the first eps, it was promising, but then it got more and more ridiculous and I droppped it after 32 episodes...this was drama was torture, I feel bad for the actors that they had to act in this badly written drama.
