Firstly, I want to say this: I loved this drama! 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!

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

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.

    A very well made drama. Cute leads, endearing moments. You'll fall in love with the family. Strangely enough the overacting was bearable and the makjang not over the top.

    I pick up this drama with no high expectation and a little bit hesitant coz I hate long stories... 44 Episodes??? Yet I want to try a family story and I'm glad I did it...

    It's almost the same wit the drama SMILE you which I also llike and some of the cast are the same... I really enjoyed it.. It makes me laugh, it tickles my heart and make me cry sometime....

    I'm always excited for the next episodes not because its thrilling but it simply give you a good vibes to watch.. plain and simple but its memorable.... Had a perfect bland to each character.. Over All Perfectly Amazing...

    All i have to say Park Se-young has pleasant happy smile.I smile everytime she smiles.i have no clue why. she got that infectious smile. it got slow down after 20. I think this is closest to perfect family drama. No plots. More conflicts. I think you have to make drama on conflict than silly made up plots. It makes drama natural. More fight between good vs good instead of good vs ugly. I am in ep 31. I really like the scene where he ask his wife to get out. wife is lazy spoiled brat protected by granny for long. Finally they gave full power to son in law. Great family story. i got to say granny killing it in every scene she is in. she is hillariously funny with her nosy voice.

      I am now halfway through the drama and I can now understand why you mentioned Kim Hyung Kyu. I haven't known him before, but he is the best here! I'm definitely a fan now :)

    This really is a true Family drama. Mostly full of romance for the daughters, but by the end you realise how much you come to love for the rest of the family members, and how much of a great family they are (wish they where mine). Loved it from start to end 9/10 :) strongly reccommend, it also ended really well seeing as it was cut short (unlike other dramas where they skip storylines the fit the fewer episodes)

    I thought the first ep was really poor and slow. Boring
