    This drams was slow paced but towards the end if every episode I just kept on wanting more. It was slow but not boring each character had their own problems. It was a good mixture of stories 50 episodes seamed short since there were a bunch of issues in this drama. I loved the male lead's acting when he was sad you could actually hear his voice shaking, I don't know if he does that naturally or it was acting. The whole cast had good chemistry. I loved it

    I’ve spend so much time watching this drama, that I decided I should at least write a review. As I want to do it thoroughly, it might be a tiny little bit spoilerish, so if you don’t want to know anything about the plot before watching, please consider not reading this review.

    First of all, the description can be a bit misleading, if you were hoping while choosing it that it will be a romantic comedy, you can end up being disappointed, because it’s back to back a family melodrama. If you consider it as such, this it will be a valuable watch.
    What I found interesting about Korean family drama is that, while telling a story, it touches upon social and cultural issues between the

  • Both contain poor sweethearted girl and rich arrogant guy, who dont like each other at first and fight whenever they meet. Also both deal with families past and struggles.

  • They're both about secret family matters. Both very funny, bit longer than your typical 16 to 24 episodes, and a very good family show. But mostly alike on the secret family matter :) I love them both ^^

  • sternchen Jan 5, 2014
    Sorry, had to drop it after 3 eps. I usually don't mind ling dramas, but this one was just too slow paced. I don't even know how they manage to fill every episode with so little going on.

    This drama is good but it could have been much better. It is sad to see how they are constantly building the plot by creating misunderstandings and for example times where a character obviously should tell what truly happened but won't.

    This can work from time to time, but when you start to see every episode being like this it drags down the story and irritation sinks in.

      I think I grew tired of the main heroine but I definitely liked the bakery guy and LSS's sisters. But yeah, the story became unattractive and too boring :/

    I really liked it. Overall it was a good drama. I gave it a 9. By the end, the mother was son-in-law deep, and that made me happy.
  • Maisweetlove Sep 3, 2013
    I loved it. I understand why people say that it dragged out a bit, but let us be honest: in real life, things don't happen fast either. The thing I liked about this drama was the level of reality (and of course some of its not-so-real, but funny parts). I gave it a 9 because although I enjoyed it immensely, I just wasn't that much in love with the drama. :)

  • Masquerade Aug 29, 2013
    Am I the only one whos dissapointed by the ending? :(
    At least Soon Shin and Mi Ryung should have hugged.
    I thought it was going to be like that:

    Mi Ryung and Soon Shin get very well along. Mi Ryung gets accepted by Soon Shins family and maybe even became a part of it.
    And Il Do...still dont know what kind of relationship he and Mi Ryung share. Only friendship??

      I feel you on the ending about Soon shin and Mi ryung. Besides that the ending was good for me.

      As for Il Do, theyre just friends,like a brother and sister relationship because Mi Rying and Il Do grew up together in the same orphanage.

      Nooo :( it was a perfect ending !!!! Now mi reyung is happy !!! She finally feel's free and good again if she went back to soon shin there will be alot of problems besides son shin's family would never accept her spacially the grandmother !! She deserves to rest after all of this so o think that ending was perfect :)
  • meganjoy12 Aug 27, 2013
    the first half of this drama was a 10 it was sooo freaking good. but around the halfway mark the focus switched from the otp to the mother drama and it dragged until the last few episodes. also jo jung suk got hardly any screen time and pretty much became a supporting character. so I ended up giving this drama a 7

    Wonderful ending! Overall a good drama, although it a dragged a bit at times. But that happens with these 50-episode dramas, I guess...
