Fun romantic family dramas, although in one the family is against the main couple and in the other the family want them to be together but they hate each other, they have the same feeling and are really enjoyable.
This drama so far reminds me of both smile you and unexpected you. They are both family dramas (many many episodes) which have humorous aspects in them. So far Glorious day has been good, so I hope it will continue that way. I really enjoyed Unexpected you, I thought it was brilliant.
So I think if you like Glorious day so far, you will like Unexpected you.
The elder actors are doing such a fantastic job. I teared up in many scenes with grandma and grandpa.
Plus, why isn't Sin Ae helping out her mother? Why should Da Jeong have that task? I know that Da Jeong probably doesn't mind taking care of grandma, but Sin Ae should get to know about the disease and help, instead of being her usual cynical self.
And while we're at it, I love love love Da Jeong and Jae Woo.
Maybe this is a cultural aspect, because where I'm from, elders are taken care of by their children (and spouses), when they get older and/or sick.
Even if grandma and grandpa don't want anyone to help them, it's probably because they don't want to bother their children/in-laws. In this case, it could be a good lesson for Sin Ae; she needs a wake up call from her fantasy little world, where she spends money she doesn't have and treats everyone like they're here to serve her. Like I said, even if Da Jeong doesn't mind, she shouldn't have all the responsibility in this. Grandma's disease is very serious and delicate.
I remember Da Ae's coworker trying to convince her to dissuade Da Jeong into marrying in a family with such kind of disease- it means daughters-in-law are to take care of everyone.
Truthfully I may love korean dramas but I sure dont want to marry into one. Daughters-in-law are slaves.
I feel for grandpa as well because he is taking care of grandma by himself.
I found that part so unfair for Da Jeong, because truly, even if she's an amazing and dedicated grandaughter-in-law, the rest of the family should also help, in order to provide a comfortable living for the elders.
Surely it's very complicated to be a daughter-in-law in Korea :c but also with daughters/mothers like Sin Ae, everything becomes twice as hard.
Yap in our perspective it is unfair to DJ but in theirs they don't feel that way at all because it is normal to them. Basically it is a family problem though and everyone has to play their part in taking care of grandma. I get so angry whenever I see females being treated the way s.koreans do in dramas. In my country, like yours, children and other blood related family are the ones expected to take care of the elderly and the sick- not the outsiders.
I'm still curious to know how long will it take for Sin Ae and her husband to know about the disease. Did you notice at the shopping mall, how she looked at grandma like she was faking after dropping the money on the floor? For crying out loud, what kind of daughter doesn't realise her mother is sick and even thinks it might be an act.
Tbh, I also wished So Lee was a better person in general, but Sin Ae deserves a daughter-in-law just like her. Every bit of it.
I think the writer needs to know when enough is enough with those types of mother in laws because it just (for me anyways) makes it really hard and annoying to watch the drama. Like seriously Sin Ae should have gotten a grip already. She's been opposing for too long now.
It depends if you are into long weekend (family) dramas or not. This one basically deals with family issues, mother-children relationships, sweet romantic relationships, conflicts within the family circle.
This drama is slow paced but still quite eventful. The characters aren't too over the top, the storylines aren't out of this world, but it's incredibly heartwarming and simple.
I think it has some slower episodes here and there but all in all, I'm liking it a lot.
