The drama draws a love story between two co-workers at an insurance company, with Kim Ji Hoon playing the company's whip-smart lawyer. Because he carries the hurt of having been abandoned by his birth mother, he doesn't easily open his heart to others. Jin Pal Kang (Choi Jung Won) is a 25-year-old employee of the company who becomes responsible for her five younger adopted siblings after her parents meet with sudden deaths.

This drama was one of the few that I really enjoyed. The first few episodes took me for an emotional roller caster ride. It was more of a coming of age story line for the protagonist. As yo watch the episodes you realize that the protagonists relationship starts of slow but gets intense as you go on. During this drama you will laugh, get angry, and also cry a river of tears. read more I recommend it to all the drama crazed fans out there.

I usually avoid family dramas at all costs. The larger the cast of focused characters, the quicker I lose interest. And god forbid there be more than one child in the show! But seriously, I have never been more impressed by a cast of child actors than I was with Stars Falling From the Sky! The children very quickly stole my heart, none moreso than Pa Rang.

When the show starts, Pal read more Kang is a frivolous, irritating young woman who doesn't care about anything other than landing the lawyer as her husband. This show does an amazing job of show casing her growth as a person and as a mother. My only complaint is the sheer number of times she felt the need to say that when she cut her hair in the bath house, that was when she stopped being a woman. There are some episodes where she felt the need to point that out 3 or more times! As for her male counterpart, his growth was also very interesting to watch. I definitely enjoyed just how much room the writers gave these characters to grow together.

As for the remaining cast, the nephew was hilarious, if a little too much at times. His love for Pal Kang was a welcome comedic relief though. And the three children's devotion to each of Pal Kang's potential husbands was also something that was really fun to watch. I never did end up liking the brother, Joon Ha, though. He always came off as kind of slimy, even when he was trying his hardest to be a sincere knight in shining armor. Ugh, and don't even get me started on Jae Yong. Her strict adherence to the idea that Kang Ha had to marry her absolutely, no matter what, was irritating, cause it's never given a clear motive of why. It doesn't make sense, the lengths she goes to to force Kang Ha into a relationship with her.

And this is definitely a show that ends up jumping the shark in the last episode. Majorly. Without spoiling it, let's just say, the last episode felt as if the writers were giving a big middle finger to the audience's intelligence, I have to say. Maybe if they had spent a little more time developing hte storyline they threw in in the last episode, it might have made more sense.

All in all, this show is a cute, easy watch. Nothing ground breaking or earth shattering, but fun and cute, even if you do end up wanting to punch several characters straight in the face at times.

First half of dramas have quite similar atmosphere, similar characters, but second half of SFftS is not so good.

The main character through live a similar change in the dramas.
And the dramas are about family-cohesion and about murder.

    Yeah, couldn't give this more than a 6 on account of the writers being so despicable and shallow by adding such stupid and idiotic and trash characters, Jae Young, Joon Ha, and Tae Gyu who just don't know when to give up. Will there ever be any writers that ACTUALLY DO know how to write a proper drama? I also think the writers were also amateurs because for some major events that happened, the writers just didn't show them, so disappointing, and the ending, what was up with that? So rushed and confusing...

    The overacting by the female lead was awful. Her emotions, indignation, humor, or tears did not sound or feel real. It killed the romance. For the 3 males leads to all be in love with her was absurd. My least favorite drama!

    I was so worried I wasn't going to like. I'm so glad I gave it a try. I love it.
    The script was sometimes a little rough around the edges but it's still great.

    the plot was good, i enjoyed it, but the only thing was the romance, i felt it was rushed or something, but other than that, i love the kids, and also the other characters.

    This drama was so good! I was stuck and loved every second of it! Ok not every because of that annoying Jae Young... and at the time I hated her so much i started calling her fish face... But anyways, I loved the romance between the main characters but it was not the most important thing, no it was the main actress, her role was so cool and you could really feel pain for her and you were happy that she could fins her happiness :) I am a great fan of Kim Ji Hoon and I must say that this is one of the best dramas he has made, I was fascinated of his character, because, even if he was cold in "Why did you come to my house" so was he also simple to read, but this time he had so much feeling in his acting that the story became more and more real. And I can't help but loving the scenes with him and Pa Rang, they just have this awesome bond, but that isn't the only kid he is awesome with, no also the baby! When he walks around with him on the arm, so cute!

    I find it hard to keep watching this drama...Im watching episode 2 right now and I dont really get close to the characters. Especially not to the main lead. Why do I find it hard to like her? :/ In the most dramas I started liking the main lead immedietally...but this girl...I find her in ep 1 too bothering and in ep 2 kinda too emotionless toward her parents loss...

      Yes, the first episodes are a little slow and she is tough to like. However, if you stick it out you may come to like it. I actually love this drama and re-watch it. The later episodes really progress and the characters grow on you. It is worth it. (And the kids are so cute!)
