Their reputation is suddenly turned upside down because their teenage son, Han In Sang, impregnates his girlfriend from an ordinary family, Seo Bom.

Where to Watch Heard it Through the Grapevine
Cast & Credits
I haven't seen Yoo Joon Sang an anything else that I can think of, but he is pretty spectacular as Han Jeong Ho. His expressions are excellent. I also haven't seen Yoo Jo Jeong in anything. She was ok as Choi Yeon Hee, but I really didn't feel for her character and I thought that I would eventually feel sorry for her. Lee Joon gets better with each role. I like him as boy/man Han In Sang. He portrayed his struggle really well. Where did Go Ah Sung come from? She did Seo Bom proud with strength and dignity. I enjoyed the other actors as well.
The music is pretty good. It doesn't get on my nerves, but nothing stands out.
I won't rewatch this.
I recommend this drama, but it isn't action packed or overly exciting. If you like dramas that make you think then this is for you.
This is not a light, fluffy romcom, nor a makjang melodrama. It's a dark satire that pokes holes in a cliched plotline, while focusing on the toll corruption takes on families and people, from the lowliest to the upper echelon. I enjoyed watching this very much and am sorry to see it go, and wish they hadn't cut 2 episodes.
This fully deserved the Baeksang Award :D
