I absolutely detest writing a review without finishing a drama, but I fear I won't be able to finish this one. My eternal patience has given way to annoyance and even murderous intent - so I'll stop lest I decide to start plotting against the crew. I've come a long way (85 episodes), so I guess I'm not dropping it without trying. So why am I giving up when there are only 15 episodes remaining?

Two reasons:
1. Every drama has lovable characters who keep the viewers occupied. This drama has no consistent ones. Even the supposedly good characters behave like retards more than once.
2. After 85 episodes, I feel like the story so far could've been as well been covered in 8 episodes.

Lets start with the synopsis - "A drama about a woman who finally becomes a part of a family after re-adoption and man who chooses love over family." I seriously wonder how this synopsis was written (gets my nomination for the worst synopsis reward). After around 43 hours, I'm not convinced that she's becoming a part of the family but I'm already convinced he's not choosing love over family.

Coming to the story, this features the most hopeless and pointless love quadrangle I've ever seen seen in a drama. Seems more like mere obsession and rivalry rather than love. The so-called hero keeps jumping all over the place with his decisions. Every drama has characters you'd like to kill off so that the rest can be in peace. But if you start doing it here, there'll be no one left.

The only redeeming point was the music - I kinda liked the opening theme.

Rewatch: The "watch" value itself tends to zero - the rewatch might as well go into negative.

Concluding Thoughts: I might've been critical and exaggerated here and there, but I'm at the pinnacle of vexation and have been ruing the wasted hours of my life. There are loads of good family-oriented dramas out there like Glorious Day, Family's Honor, Assorted Gems and Daughters-in-law. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this contraption.

I was very touched and moved by Im Se Mi's role as Seunghye.I believe she was not acting but living the role,the tears were real.
I started watching Korean drama only in the last few months and I have watched mostly the KBS 2 dramas. This one made quite and impression on me.

Some times an actors personality comes through the role that makes it more endearing . This is one of those occasions. I followed the dialogue through the English subtitles, imagine if I knew Korean.

I hope to see Im Se Mi in a lead role soon.You are a good soul.Congratulations and all the best.

Congratulations to the director and the script writers,and those who played the role of:

Grandma Kim
Mija
Chaewon
Daesil
Sangman
and Daesil's hunband

Keep up the good work.

Cheers!
