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.

At first I was really thinking this drama was trying to put in their plot all the kinds of cliches that all dramas have. And well, this drama indeed is a big cliche, but still it manages to get your attention every episode. The story seems too long sometimes, but I think they only wanted to really develop the plot, not rushing it. The comedy is good, the drama is nice and read more the romance is cute. Some characters are lovely and some are really hateful, and at some point you are cheering and hoping for things to get in their place soon because there are those characters who just deserve to get all the happiness it was being taking from them since the beginning. Until now (only episode 36 were released until now) it is being really worth it to watch this drama, I don't usually like these long dramas, but this one is being very nice to follow. All the characters and their roles get the propper focus and I think they won't leave any side story unresolved until the end.

Similar story family drama, one female is nice and all about love, justice etc and another female is extreme ambition, jealousy, hate etc. Their paths cross and one begins to take things away from the other with lies,deceit and all other cliched stuff.

Both are 50 episode dramas with the same female antagonist Lee Yoo Ri

Her Legend is about making bags while Come Jang Bori is about hanboks...both are Makjang dramas where the 2nd lead tries to take the female leads place in her family & tries every trick to win over her talent...the male lead in both is the playful heir who's always their to rescue the female lead!

    Although I wanted to smash her face in multiple times during the drama, The villain actress does an PHENOMENAL job. Her acting was on spot.

    I have two words for this drama 'UTTER RUBBISH' up to ep 17! I love long dramas because it allows for character and plot development but this was too frustrating and nonsensical to watch up to episode 17. Things improved only marginally in my opinion until up to ep. 34 after which it got considerably better from 34 through to 37, when some truths were revealed and lies exposed; then it dragged some more to ep 48 and got better from ep 45 - 50. My problems with this drama were it dragged, too many gaps in logic and the villain was ALWAYS TEN STEPS AHEAD! Loved the male lead which was probably why I stuck with it; not the worst drama but could have been a lot better.

    So this drama has lots of flaws but for some reason I still really loved it and watched the enitre series in a few days.

    I'd recommend it if:

    1. You like long family dramas where everyone is somehow connected
    2. You like over the top crazy makjang
    3. You want to see (probably) the most evil female villain from any kdrama ever
    4. You like adorable playful goofy male leads who would do anything for the woman he loves (he's actually one of my all time fav. Leads)
    5. You like dramas with no love triangle
    6. You like a little revenge in your shows (although it's not the main focus)
    7. You like dramas that have a large focus on the child

    Even with how many messed up things she did I still feel bad for Ming Jung at the end of the series

    Even with all the cliches it had a pull that would make one watch with interest

    I'm glad that MBC chose not to drop makjang! I enjoyed this from beginning to end (except for that 'mole-faced' MJ doppelganger business). And yes, karma is a biatch!

    Now all that's left is to see how Lee Yoo Ri & Kim Ji-Young (Bi Dan) make out when it's time for awards.

    ok that STUPID idea ( look alike but with MOLE!!!!!!!!!!!) i was expecting better ending this was not so much, the same writer did great job in Five Fingers but in this one not so good. i don't pity her at all and her karama was nothing. i hate the ending, they dragged so much and i wished they stick with 50 episodes or in my opinion 20 episodes because the same story again and again nothing new.
