JBR is the best Makjang drama I have seen. It uses all of the Korean drama cliches/troupes from amnesia to birth secrets. The family mix is great. There are so many moms and grandmas that it is just funny. There are a few useless and somewhat lame bi-stories, but they don't take too much time. What makes this great is that the liars and schemers are never truly happy and constantly afraid read more they will be found out. Most everyone has a secret. It is over the top acting with a ridiculous story line at its best.

The actors are great. All of the acting is a little over the top...so don't expect it to be realistic. There are some great veteran actors in this drama. However, Lee Yoo Ri totally stole the show. She takes crazy to a new level as Min Jung. She wears this thick bright red lipstick that is just way too much which goes perfectly with her character. Her ending is better than the endings for most "bad guys". Everyone else is good in this too. Kim Ji Hoon plays a totally adorable Lee Jae Hwa that acts kind stupid, but isn't. I like that the romance between him and Jang Bo Ri (Oh Yeon Seo) is consistent once it starts. Strangely enough, Bo Ri isn't the center of the story to me although the drama is named after the character. My favorite relationship dynamic was between Moon Ji Sang (Sung Hyuk) and Bi Dan. Kim Ji Young is just the cutest little thing. I worried about Bi Dan from beginning to end.

The music is fine.

I probably won't rewatch this, but it is rewatchable.

I know some people don't like this kind of drama, but I enjoy them. If you like them, then JBR is definitely a must watch.

As a person who watches many dramas, I expected clichés in all Korean drama. But in this drama the cliché only added to the plot of the drama(in a good way). I've watched almost every single Korean drama(I would hardly give any of them this kind of rating) that could exist on earth, but none could compare to this one. I have stayed up all night crying, laughing and raging. This drama read more is so touching and teaches very valuable lessons.

In this drama there are people who deserve to get all the happiness in the world which were taken from them since the beginning. And there are people who deserve to be slapped in the face. The comedy is great, with all the grandmas and moms. BUT IF you are going to watch this drama bring a bottle of punch and a box of tissue, because you'll be laughing and crying all together. This drama was a great experience for. I have watched it five times. It teaches lessons about greed, secrets and lying. I recommend this drama to everyone.

Both are long family dramas with approximately the same runtime. Person Who Gives Happiness is 118 eps 30 minutes each. Come Jang Bo Ri is 52 eps 60 minutes each. Both female leads adopt and raise a child. Both female leads find sweet husbands that help them to deal with the evil schemes of others. Sweet romances with lots of makjang drama.

It's the same plot line, and everything just the Chinese version

    7/10 - The relentless lies and secrets became tiresome. Total over the top makjang.

    Lee Yoo Ri....she killed it. Her acting was just great, I kept having to pause it every time she was on screen because she just made your blood boil. Like who dropped the The Spider's Thread into hell for her to escape?

    9/10. It would have been a 10/10 if it didn't get annoyingly repetitive around ep 40. Don't get me wrong, this was actually a greattt drama! It was interesting, funny, and cute. However, somewhere around ep 40, the drama became so focused on Min Jung and her lies that I got annoyed of it lol because I really liked the cute and funny scenes and there wasn't much around ep 40. I was disappointed that they rarely show Kang Nae Cheon and Jung Ran towards the end..they were my favorite couple T__T. The main couple was super cute too but there were less and less cute scenes between them as the drama goes on. But I have to say that this is the best makjang drama I've ever watched!

      :D Congratulations for ending it .. and 9/10 is not bad
      maybe because you watched many episodes per day made you felt little annoyed
      for me , since ep38 to ep52 I watched one episode only per 2 days :D that's why I haven't feel boring
      and I agree with you the best makajang ever :D
      and I've heard ( sister is alive) which is currently airing has the same level of tension of Jang Bo ri .. let's wait and see

    I have a really hard time watching dramas with more than 16 eps bc I feel after that it mostly just gets draggy but I really really loved this one and I watched it in one week. One of the only makjang dramas that I could bring myself to start.

    Watching but it seems i will be dropping this one soon i am getting really tired of the bickering couple type of romance why there is too much of these i don't mind a couple that fight in a dramatic realistic way because of a serious matters or the type in a revenge and angst dramas like (secret) or bicker for a short period of time or in few episodes like (Doctors).
    in this drama i saw their first meeting scene and immediately lost interest it the same in every drama acting childish and immature.
    You..you spilled coffee on me that day..<bickering starts
    You...you took my bag and didn't return it that day..<.bickering starts
    You..you treated me rudely that day.. < bickering starts
    and the biggest problem it drags half of the show which is very annoying can't we watch a mature couple that meets, gets closer, become friends and fall in love like normal people.

      I haven't seen this drama yet but I like your comment! I want a drama with mature ppl too, with normal behavior! I want 2 people meet and have intelligent conversation, to see how love is developed step by step and the main characters are having normal activities! Of course a little drama can't harm, just to make it spicy, but ... please writes! Enough with this childish so called purity mixed with stupidity and aggressivity !

    I enjoyed most of episodes 25 and up (still skipped a little with a few characters I disliked) but episode 52 honestly ruined my good feelings for it :/ *I'll post more in spoiler tag* and the last episode was so draggy - I felt like I was walking through mud! :/

    My favorite characters were Jae Hwa, Ji Sang, Bi Dan, Bo Ri, and Jae Hee.

    I don't think I will watch this again though :/

    giving it a 7 - might lower it later to a 6.5 not sure....

      It depends on taste I guess, I would say pass and watch a different better family drama but I know many liked this one - I thought thought it was really slow and I started liking it more around ep.25... But for me endings make or break a show so... I can't say I'd recommend it. :/ If you have other 50 episoders on your PTW list choose one of them instead lol

    I'm started Come Jang Bo Ri back up again - it's been in my on hold list since it came out - I had watched 23 episodes and decided to watch other dramas instead b/c this show wasn't holding my attention at the time - honestly I felt bored with it and annoyed with too many characters in it - but I'm going to finish it now from where I stopped (just watched episode 24 now) b/c I know so many people said it was really good *I still don't see that* The only characters I care about are Bo Ri and the guy that likes her and the evil girls ex-boyfriend - but at the same time Bo Ri is one of the characters I get annoyed with a lot - WHY? b/c of her secrets and lies to the guy that likes her. -_- But anyways, I'm going to finish it whether or not I end up liking it b/c it's on my hard-drive and if I don't like it I can delete it and make room for another drama lol :P

    Honestly I probably wouldn't even of dreamed of starting it up again - except for the fact I wanted to know what happens to Jae Hwa and Ji Sang lol (2 actors I love watching) *They are the only reason I've decided to continue*

    I'm amazed at how bad this is. Like, it's so bad maybe it's watchable. Probably not. Run. Don't look back.

      I so agree with you,but we all have different taste some people may enjoy all this madness. For me it was really hard to think kids can be so conniving at an early age kids are usually pure unless brought up really wrong. I also did not realize how being working class is so looked down on in Asian countries. I don't understand Asian parents at all and I have been told of many times for that on MDL but I still maintain children should have the right to choose and make their own mistakes when they get old enough to marry. Sorry just rambling. Terrible drama great acting.
