I smiled and giggled like crazy while watching this, the stories and plotline for each characters are realistically and naturally told. It is like you were watching someone else life during this 54 episodes of which may be able to be extended to more and more episodes because there would be no boring moments. It is about daily conflicts in our society / family with no dramatic measures that commonly seen in any other dramas. I have profound interest to every couples and family members here. They were just funny and sometimes annoying. Even the supporting roles in here like waiter or colleague were taken kinda thoroughly. I wondered during my watching, how the writter could be so precise in determining the scripts. Moreover, she (writter) showed a lot of moral lessons to viewers. I reminisced of my grandparents too btw. :')

The casting are completely perfect and great to portray the characters. The grandfather was very fun and also the aunt. The acting was exceptionally great as most of them were senior actor/actress. The youngsters are damn good-looking except i didnt really fond of Nam Gyu Ri face who looked like a doll (probably over-surgery).

This drama dont have ost which keeps you remember. The background music also rarely played during the dramas. I thought this made the drama so alive and simple. :)

Rewatch Value
Hmm i guess i will watch it again if i miss it later . I am typical who dont watch drama twice, but for this drama i probably will.

If you like family, reasonable, realistic, and not draggy drama, this one is the best and amazing one. (my personal opinion). I give it 10++ actually haha.
This drama has similar vibes with Reply 1988 which I found both are realistic and not silly like other dramas were supposed to be.

Reason my rating might seem a little low is b/c I'm not that big of a fan of 'realistic' dramas (although there are good points to them) and I went in it for one actress and liked another character a lot but I felt like both of their endings were "incomplete" and I wanted a "complete" for them before it ended :/ Anyways, I think anyone who enjoyed 'Life is Beautiful' will enjoy this drama too - I thought they had a similar "vibe" to them.

Story: It's about a big family of 3 generations and everything that "happens" to them in their life.

Cast: Wang Ji Hye as Yuri - probably the most different portrayal of a character you've seen her play yet lol - most know that she usually plays a snobby rich woman who sometimes lurks on men or is just plain stuck up - but in this drama she is a quirky clumsy delightful fun loving girl who is a bit ignorant and speaks her mind even when she shouldn't lol - I found her character to be adorably cute! She was my 2nd favorite character in the drama (or maybe I should say she was my favorite character by herself - whilst another character was my favorite inside her relationship) ;)
Yoon So Yi as Se Hee - my favorite character inside her relationship with her husband ^^ She is strong and resilient and loves her husband so much - I really enjoyed their relationship and the "turmoil" it went through b/c of a secret - she went to the bottom and rose back up to the top and I love her for that.
Kim Young Hoon as Hyun Woo - my absolute FAVORITE man in this drama - despite his "faults" (and they were BIG) but he was the only character in the drama I could have seen myself marrying - he (despite the wrong) was the most ideal husband. Loving, kind, warm-hearted and very sincere. I loved him and I really enjoyed his relationship with his wife Se Hee ^_^ Best couple of the year award from me!
Jo Han Sun as Se Hyun - He was a decent guy but too cold for my taste but he was a perfect match for Yuri - they were adorable - or maybe I should say she made him adorable? ^^ He was a doctor and followed in his fathers footsteps. His faults were looking down on his siblings even though he cared about them.
Jung Hae In as Se Joon - the maknae of the family and was enjoyable to watch - he was too stubborn and serious at times but I enjoyed seeing his heart get whisked away by a girl :) A guy who dreams about traveling.
Shin So Yool as So Hee - She's a nurse who doesn't trust men and isn't sure if she'll ever marry when she finally decides to go on blind dates - man it was hilarious to watch even though I felt bad for her luck lol - her character was nice and sweet to watch.
Nam Gyu Ri as Na Young - she is a cheerful girl who doesn't have much luck in landing roles in dramas and mostly does modeling work b/c of her mom - she starts hanging out with Se Joon a lot and gets swooped up in the air of love lol
Seo Ji Hye as Ji Sun - She is Na Young's older sister and lost her husband only 15days after marriage and her mother-in-law shortly after (I went into this drama for her but she has very little screen time - I swear she's just a side character). She works as a Teacher (English teacher I think) Lecturer or something - It's hard figuring out all their jobs lol
The grandparents were funny and nice, the aunt was a big mouth but also lonely, Min Ho was a quiet and reserved bear who has a bad drunk habit and who lost his wife and son too soon, Kyung Ho is a very rude hot tempered guy who never learns to be nice to his wife (worst husband material ever) His wife is very put down by him daily, Jae Ho is a doctor and lives with his parents wife and kids (best son of the grandparents) his wife runs the house and is very nice (of course I love all of Kim Hae Sook's character roles lol).

Music: I didn't notice much there was a song or two played here and there that I liked but they weren't part of the actual OST... I mainly liked the funny music that came on when Yuri was on screen lol

Rewatch value: ... I probably won't re-watch this but others may like it more than I did...
