I loved every minute of this drama, it has made it to my top 5 Family dramas (of this length) ! Best family drama of 2014 so far!

Story: a divorced mother of 3 girls ends up moving next door to her "oppa" and when families meet sparks fly (good and bad) lol, we see the process of her daughters falling in love and there's someone for the mother too ;) anyone read more who likes family dramas, this is one you aren't going to want to miss!!!

Cast: Jae U (LSW) my personal favorite and probably the "main main" male lead - his characters never fail to make me fall for them - he was a true sweetheart <3 Da Jeong the second eldest daughter and my favorite female lead. In U who is a bit childish but funny at some points, sometimes I was a little annoyed but most of the time he'd pull a smile from my face with his childish ways - especially around his brother ;) Da Ae a pharmacist who comes to love a man with a teenager, she was nice but I hated the way she'd cry. Da In the youngest daughter a photographer and finds love along the way too - hers was shown the least but it was cute when it was shown. Seo Lee, a lot of people didn't like her - but I liked her since the first time we get to see her, she was always nice although a bit materialistic at first (I knew that would change). Then we have the grandparents - I loved them!!! Whenever they'd sing "what about my age" I'd sing along with a smile on my face :D Min Shik a very nice warm-hearted father (love it when this actor plays a good decent guy). the only people I never really liked was Shin Ae - aggravating through almost the entire show (although it never ruined the drama for me b/c all the rest of the characters wouldn't give in to her) & Ho Jang (the girls despicable father). Hee Joo a mysterious man a first, I always wondered why he was always with Da In but after a while I kind of figured it out and then things were revealed - I liked him for the most part. Ji Ho - he was cute, especially when his father came one time and we find out he takes after his daddy hehe ;) the only complaint I had about Song Jeong is her clothing!! it looked like she was in rags for most of the drama. Goong Young, I liked him "uncle" he was very persistent but never annoying - he was special.

Music: most enduring song: What About My Age by Hong Jin Young - I love that song so much!!!!

Re-watch value: 10/10 I will definitely find time to re-watch this drama someday :D

Firstly, I want to say this: &quot;I loved this drama!&quot; This drama was amazingly warm-hearted and it always made you smile.

To be honest, I started to watch this drama because of Park Se Young. I wasn't really aware of the other actors (except for Kim Mi Sook and Jung Man Shik).

This drama is presented as a family drama and this description suits it very well. Everything in this drama is read more about family and I liked it that way.

I was a bit worried to watch Glorious Day, because 50-ep dramas usually scare me off but then I gave it a chance and I made a really good decisions. Unlike other long dramas, this drama was fast-paced and every problem got resolved very quickly (max. 2-3 episodes)

I was really addicted to this drama at the beginning. I even watched SBS live, so I could see the episodes as soon as possible. Then my addiction dropped, but this drama still became a drama I was looking forward to watch, because it always made me smile.

STORY
I loved the story in the beginning. It was fast-paced and gripping, then somewhere in the middle it lost its spark for a while but regained it very quickly in the last episodes. Unfortunately, this drama was cut down to 44 episodes in the end (because of the ratings in Korea) and honestly, I don't think that this drama deserved it. However, despite that, the writers did a great job with the ending. I was smiling like crazy. I could compare this ending to It's Okay, That's Love. I think this ending was just perfect for this drama.

ACTING
As for acting, most of the actors did a great job, but I could have seen many flaws in their acting. However, because of the storyline and chemistry between the actors, I just didn't pay so much attention to it. By the way, I loved the chemistry between Park Se Young and Lee Sang Woo. If I should pick an actor who did the best job, then it would be Kim Hyung Kyu, in my opinion. He is so young, and he did an amazing job! Really talented!

MUSIC
The music was kind of so-so. But the original songs were perfect for the story. I loved how they used trot songs.

If you are looking for a heart-warming drama, with a great chemistry between actors and you have a free time to watch it, then, please, don't hesitate and watch it! It's worth your time!

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.

    This drama reminded me a lot of another great family drama called Smile You. Two of the main actors were also the same (the father and grandfather) and the plot was also more or less the same as two families were forced to live together (with many similar dinamics between family members). I liked the heart-warming feeling of the story and on the whole I enjoyed it and rated it 8. My favourite characters were the grandparents and the mother of the three daughters, Song Jung. Nevertheless there was an aspect that bothered me a lot and this was the appalling patronizing attitude of some of the parents towards their children (in particular that of Shin Ae) which went way over the bearable limit and I found it quite unrealistic that the children would accept such attitudes without batting an eye-lid. I just hope this doesn't happen in reality in the Korean society and that this is just an exaggeration of drama fiction.

    Even after one month, since the drama finished, I am still thinking about the character and about the story. What a great drama! Really heart-warming and fun to watch :)

    I think this drama should be watched by every couple. It managed to packaged a number of realistic portrayals of most relationships, especially of married couples, bringing with it wonderful dialogues that are truly enriching.

    I think I made a good choice. Which is watching it when I had nothing else to watch, in a really boring holiday.

    Helped a lot. Enjoyable ride. Thank you, Glorious Day's staff/cast.

    This is a feel good slice of life drama which works best after you have watched some sad/angsty dramas to calm yourself and feel good.

      Jeongmal? I thought this is probably one of the interesting makjangs I've seen so far (err.. I haven't watch many to compare)

      jaekyung 7 hours ago

      Yes! Except Glorious Day isn't a makjang. It was an experiment by SBS to make a Makjang-Free (well as little as possible) drama. It didn't succeed, unfortunately.

      I guess the writers are wondering how to end this series since they got cut short. Hopefully they give us a full nice ending.

      samsoons Sep 28, 2014

      Turns out that wasn't the correct schedule (they changed it later on).

      Episode 42 aired yesterday (09/27). Episodes 43 and 44 air next weekend and conclude the drama on Oct 5.

    oh I see they lowered the episode count - it was 50 but now it's 44 - don't know how to take that - good or bad?...oh well, hopefully they still end it good and don't rush things ;)

      Yeah I noticed that too. I suspected it to be cut a while back actually cos its not doing well in the ratings in Korea.

      I wonder why the ratings aren't good in Korea when it's such a good show...
