This was a 100% family drama and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I cried a lot, laughed a lot and watched different types of love on parade. Because of this drama I realized how important it is for us to spend time with our parents who have nothing but our best in mind.
I did not know a couple of the leads but they were really good and made me believe their characters. read more Their acting was so natural and so funny when they have to be, and they made me cry at the tender moments as well.
The music was so well suited to the drama.
As for rewatch value, it's a long drama, so maybe in the very far future I will go ahead and re-watch. It's worth it.

This was a great family drama, I thoroughly enjoyed all the characters stories. It has a great balance of family drama, comedy, romance, and crazy "happenings" in every episode to keep you entertained and invested in the story. Every character is unique and charming in their own way - you'll love them, hate them or maybe even a little of both at times ;) I think it's a great family drama that read more everyone should watch - especially if you want to learn how to treat your family better. It teaches a good lesson on that point.

Cast: My favorite character was Dal Bong (Hyung Sik) I think he resembled his father in personality and traits the most - he was the most caring kid this guy had - even in his immaturity he was still pretty mature lol His character brings life to this drama with all his charm, cuteness, emotions, temper, awkwardness & that "fake laughter" of his that was so similar to his dads^^ Seol Woo the country bumpkin as I call her is my second favorite. Kang Shim & Tae Joo were the hilarious couple - man that guy can make lots of weird, crazy, strange ugly funny faces lol - but he was quite charming when he was serious <3 & KS can sure make a person cry :'( The Dad is my next favorite - his only fault - being a little too self-less. Then we have the cousin Young Sul - always looking for trouble might I say lol The rest are all on equal boats for me - I never really liked Kang Jae (the older brother) he was way too emotion-less and distant but there were a couple scenes where he made me cry. He's arrogant and I've never liked arrogant people - they rub me the wrong way... oh and Dal Bong's "friend" Eun Ho was a great part of the cast too, he really riles Dal Bong's feathers up and it was entertaining most of the time, a few times I got mad at him but that quickly dissipated every time :P

Music: On the Road by Choi Baek Ho, I Told You by Yozoh, Father's Youth by ? (I really like this song but I don't know the artist)

Re-watch Value: 9/10 I really enjoyed it and will re-watch it again someday.

Both are family dramas dealing with elder fathers having to deal with their children's issues late in life. Instead of enjoying a serene retirement, the parents have to give a helping hand to their troublesome sons and daughters.

WHTMF is quite similar to UY in the sense that there is a lot of development within the family that you see over a period of time. Moon Tae Joo reminds me a lot of the husband in UY and by the you see a lot of love within the family. Both very funny at times and also they both have serious moments. These two are part of the longer dramas that I really enjoyed watching. I hope you do too. <3

    Is it me or in Episode 30 it does seem Seo Wool was bad mouthing Gang Jae's wife than when Dal Bong came out and Gang Jae she acted all sweet?
    I didn't like her character she acted all sweet but it seem she did it for others to like her and praise her but supposedly she acted like she didn't know or did it on purpose. Like on episode 30 she cooked because the wife didn't finish dinner faster but when she was receiving the praises she was all smiles than acted like she didn't know they were praising her. HHMMM double faced girl.
    Even do the wife was acting childish I think she was right, she has never cooked for a big family or cooked. They were okay for her to cook western food, she is used to High class food, than they act all shocked with the food than the other girl jumps in to still her light and start cooking noodles and they praise her. I would be pissed of too.

    i decided to watch it after watching Five Children which i absolutely loved!
    first off all the actors and actresses did an amazing job! loved the acting!!

    the drama itself to be honest was not bad i did skip a lot because at times it was really getting boring and was not getting serious i understand that one of the genre is comedy but so many situations where it had to get serious but it didn't and it was just getting on my nerves and some characters needed to literally step up and change but they didn't
    there wasn't any huge character development to be honest which was disappointing the only character i liked was Cha Gang Jae he was the only character that changed even though many audience did not like him i also liked Cha Dal Bong because he was kinda like daddy's boy so it was fun to watch him with his dad, couple wise again none of them caught my interest

    but what was amazing about this drama is that it makes you really think about your parents!! even if you aren't a bad child and you have a good relationship with you're parents you started questioning yourself and you suddenly have the urge to go hug them and spend time with them and i think that's why many people fell in love with this drama!

    I'm just so happy this won what it deserve
    won Best Drama award
    Yoo Dong Geun (the Dad) won the Daesang/Grand Prize
    and the Scripwriter won Best Scripwriter

    best family drama ever the plot is very very realistic and well balanced not dramatic
    the characters are perfectly made perfectly performed every character was unique in their own way they were hateful loveable funny just perfect with their flaws, most importantly there wasn't any annoying/evil characters
    all the actors/actress did a really GREAT job especially the dad you can't do anything but applause I have nothing to criticise about this drama I'm really speechless
    and it made me feel really bad about my parents and wanted to treat them better :(
