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.

It centers around a strong father figure and his adult children as they face internal family issues plus external struggles with their significant others. The supporting characters are diverse and in depth. A very good blend of comedy and tearful scenes. It is never boring even being over 50 episodes.
Recommended by SUNNY
Their story is similar.. with heartbreaking story.. but in this drama you'll watch more character with diferent romance..

    I honestly didn't like the dad... And Kang Jae is the worst character ever. I was annoyed about his attitude till the end. Such a crappy brother.

    Father Cha... I love him so much!!! AHHH I'm so addicted to this drama right now, and I'm so upset I kept this one on hold!!! This one plays with your heartstrings a lot. I'm also learning so much from the little lessons in this series... I lost my father a few years ago, and there's a lot I regret about what happened between us. We were estranged for years... but this drama truly makes you think about your parents so much. I only wish I cherished the time with my father, and looking at this... it really brings out so much emotions in you (if you've experienced the same). Especially if you were raised by people who were selfless and truly giving. WOW. I'm only 15 eps in, and as a writer, I only hope I could be just as good of a story teller as this writer-nim. Don't delay... this is such a wonderful family drama. The aunt is the best, and Seo Wool is just the sweetest.

    Watch this because of Hyunsik and Yoon Park.. I got tissue in my hand for the last 25 episode of the drama.. The whole dad matter is really heart wrenching.. I sincerely thankful for the writer to include Tea Joon in the drama as often as the sad part.. He is hilarious.. his expression is priceless.. hahahahha~ hate hyu jin character though.. she really can manipulate the situation and play victim. good job writer!!!

    PS: Ji hyun chemistry with Hyunsik is much better than her with Jiwook in Suspicious Partner.. =)

      The most annoying character I have seen in a drama! I had no idea she was a performer when I watched it. Her character could barely tie her own shoes without breaking a finger! She did a great job.

      Oh, yes. She even has the nickname "Female Rain". She was really popular before the 2nd Generation artists took over.

    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!
