The Wang family faces a number of challenges: elitism; discrimination; children moving back home after living on their own during colleges; the power dynamics between husband, wife and family; and decisions about when to marry and have a baby given the financial difficulties in today's Korean society. The first daughter had married into a well-off family, but after they went bankrupt she and the family had to move back to her parents' home. The second daughter is also having financial difficulties as her husband is jobless, while the third daughter suddenly decided to quit her job.

    Great family drama, love how even hard times they had. They still stuck together.I still not a fan of how the mother raised her children, giving more love and attention to only her spoiled, gold digger older daughter and mistreating her second daughter.But, she got her karma, well they both did. The woman of the family had many issues, dealing with marriage and career, love, in-laws. But, they stuck together..The son in-laws, should how rich or poor you will have to deal with being marriage and in-laws.My heart went out to the oldest son in-law. He was treated badly by his wife and family, but in the end he found the woman he should had been with.The second son in-law, was a lazy, worthless man. Who read more

    Great drama. I admit that I did fast forward some parts but I LOVED the Gwangbak-Sangnam couple. Amazing chemistry right from the start.
    And Choi Won Hong/Daebak....wow. Not only is this child-actor amazing, but the character made me wish I had a little brother too!

    I finished watching it yesterday.

    I might not see myself in any of the characters but it was still a very amusing but also very -I wanna kill- drama.

    I recommend it but it's probably not a drama that I will re-watch (I watched each episode 3 times...)

    I gave it a 9/10 because it was a family drama that is a little unlike the family dramas I've watched. It was enjoyable as it was frustrating. Actors did a great job and scriptwriters didn't change the story all of the sudden in fact they kept it pretty clean through out the whole drama.

  • _Rosie Feb 15, 2014
    WTH?? A few days washing dishes & shes welcomed back with open arms. Is that all she gets in the way of payback?? What about all the years of suffering & huge financial loss she caused to her family....

    Writers stop trying to make us sympathise with Su Bak I NEVER will :D

    AHHH just finished the whole thing. Haha the last episode. The last part. Weird. Lol xD

    It was a fun drama. Though I skip watched it a little. Anyways I enjoyed the ride.
  • samsoons Feb 13, 2014
    So tired of Su-bak and her "redemption" arc. Ridiculous.

    The only thing I want from this drama is for Sun-jeong to be happy in the end.

  • MonikaB Feb 11, 2014
    I don't like how the music has gotten all sappy when Su-Bak's onscreen. We're supposed to infer that her redemption's at hand?? I'm glad she's working and doing things for herself and even realizing how her choices affected her life and her famiy too. But I, for one, want something more for Min-Joong (namely Sun-Jeong!). Su-Bak should end up with her boss.

    WTF, so Se-dal basically raped his wife when she was sleeping and then sings happily about it?! This show is dropping to new lows...

      What ep is this? I have watched up to 41.
    • samsoons Feb 1, 2014
      @Mareina it's very problematic. The last few episodes have pulled some nonsense business but that one was way over the line.
    • Mareina Feb 2, 2014
      It's ep 44.

      Even a divorce would not be enough to satisfy me at this point, but I'm afraid he'll just get to keep her.
      I also have many other issues with the show... It has a stupid way of redeeming people or just ignoring their faults... (e.g. what you mentioned about Su-bak below)
