This drama was a fun ride, with all the antics and schemes of the family members competing for a huge sum of money, and the one grandson who cares for his grandmother over money. His family thinks he has no ambition and is just lazy, but isn't that what everyone thinks of artists? His moments with his grandma were the best parts of the show, they were warm and touching.

Most of the family was pretty stupid in the way they thought about money, they'd blow it in one day and be on the streets the next, either b/c they were addicted to shopping, or were easily conned into believing in get rich quick schemes. and we have the adopted son of the grandma who is around the same age as her grandson that I love ^-^ He would try everything to "steal" away the inheritance - why? b/c he had such a huge debt on his shoulders from doing things he shouldn't & he has a sick mom to try & take care of. All of these reasons made me ask his one and only blood-related sister to trick the family into believing she was a lawyer (with the help of the internet, books & a couple 'real' lawyers) so she could keep track of where the money was flowing and how they could get their hands on it, as time goes by she keeps feeling more and more guilty for doing what her brother asked of her & tries to convince herself to run away more than once. She gets conflicted between helping her brother & caring for the family that treats her so kind, not to mention the grandson she finds herself drawn to <3

The grandma has gone down in my books as the best grandma in dramaland ever to exist - I loved her character! and her clothing style and hairstyle were awesome for a grandma ;) I mean how many grandmas would have pink in their hair? ;D She also has a heartbreaking reason why she left her family for America for 50yrs - if I were her I would never forgive her husband -_- He was horrible and did things to her that are disgraceful for anyone to do no matter what they thought to someone they love.

Dong Sook (the grandson) was so adorably cute on this drama, I wanted to wrap him in my arms so many times, and peck him on the cheek for being so gosh darn cute ^^ I loved his character, he was faithful, loyal and trustworthy - the way he talked with his caring sweet soft voice was like heaven to my ears. The way he cared for his grandma was like no one else in that family, he truly sincerely loved her. They were almost like 2 peas in a pod. A pair that couldn't be beat ^-^ They were the perfect team. He also slowly finds himself drawn to this mysterious lawyer who came to his home, and starts to find himself falling in love <3 When things get revealed little by little can his love for her stand the rough waters that are breaking a bit of his trust in her?

The music was perfect for this drama, my favorite song was 'Cry' by Bae Ki Sung (no it's not a sad ballad - it was the entertaining song of the show) I still sing to it & love it.

I will definitely re-watch this someday - I loved every episode and especially the grandma, Dong Sook & Joon Hee (the 'fake' lawyer) - as well as that mischievous little devil Joon Ha (the adopted son).

I personally highly recommend this drama :D
