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.

Similar stories with two girls from different backgrounds changing identities. A girl from a wealthy family loses her memory while another one consciously deceives everyone. Male lead and female lead met in childhood. Male leads in both are great (their characters).

Written my the same writer.
Also the same type of theme with the main lead having her identity taken by someone close to her.

    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....

    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.

    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
