It is really hard to rate a near perfect drama!! Some people will miss out on this gem simply because of the episode count. But I can assure that with 32-35 minute episodes, you will be swept into a story that will resonant with you from now on; one that you will use as a template for all future family dramas. The acting by all was superb! The writer promised to present read more a story without one single drama clique and it was delivered. I got to see the development of a romance from start to finish. Wait, I got to see the development of 3 relationships. The problems they presented made sense. Even the brief noble idiocy moment made sense to me. I never thought I would dismiss that as a necessary evil in the story. The supporting characters, you either loved them or hated them. But that was a testament to how well they acted. Overall, I do not feel that I wasted a moment of my time. As a matter of fact, I wouldn't be surprised if one day down the drama road, I re-watch the entire drama again. Yes, it is that good!!

I think this is my first review so i don't know if it will come out well.. but i'll try.
Where to start? Hum at the beginning i thought it was just a random family Drama that i started to watch because of Im Joo Hwan and Kang So Ra.
After just the first episode i was really interested in the story and then became to love it after some more episodes. read more The Cast:I love it all. The child actors were totally amazing in my opinion and i will follow them in the future.
I think every actor has portayed his/her character really well and so i could enjoy the Drama till the end.
There will be characters who will annoy you to the bones but they will make you proud in the end changing themself for the better.You will be there to see how someone can change for the people he/she loves.
I'm not Korean but i could understand what they were saying and doing without subs. The acting is really good and it will make you enjoy this Drama.

The story tells how different people become a family and have to accept each other.
They will go through dispair,pain to finally find happiness as a family.
They will come to undertsand each other and love each other like a real family should.
They will fight for love and to protect the most loved people in their lives.

Music: I really liked the music finding myself singing without realizing it.
I cried a lot and the sad music was a stab in the back making me cry more XD
One of my favourite was No Matter What They Say by Yang Mi Jin.

Why watch this Drama? It will make you feel all the emotions the characters feel,it will make you understand people more,it will teach you a lot of things you'll need in life..

If you start watching it you won't stop.

Make a Recommendation More recs (6)Recommendations

The main characters in both these dramas are the eldest in the family, warm-hearted, protective of their loved ones and often put their happiness aside. They both faced unexpected tragedies, but are given a second chance to amend unresolved issues and restore their name.

I know they have different genre, bit there are still some similarities. Both main leads are innocent and had to sacrifice for their love; one is love for his lover while the other is love for his sibling. On both dramas, the male lead fell in love with the stepdaughter of their first love.

    My first daily drama and I really enjoyed it. The number of episodes didn't bother me probably because I grew up watching soaps. Does anyone know of any other daily dramas that center around the male character. It was nice seeing the male character starting off poor or a troubled background and working himself up to become someone.
    Im Joo Hwan is a good actor and I do not see why he is not getting lead roles.

    I'm sorry couldn't complete it even though it is good and I really want to know how the younger brother finds the truth, but long dramas aren't my taste, and even though the acting is good I don't find myself interested in the main couple, that's why I drop it

    What a gem of a series. Loved every episode. I did have few frustrating moments with second female lead marrying debacle but I love them too much to complain lol.
    I honestly can't believe I watched 133 whole episodes.

    The first 50 episodes was great then I fast forwarded until the end. Got tired of the guy's crying.

    After completing this, I want to encourage everyone intimidated by the number of episodes - like I was - to not be scared and just give this wonderful drama a chance :D <3

    Am I right in thinking that this is about 73 hours long?

    I started this yesterday and the older brother is already making me cry to no limits, is it going to be a continuous cry fest? :(
