In the drama "Golden Pouch”, Seok Hoon, a genius doctor who is an orphan loses his memory due to an accident on his wedding day. He wakes up mistakenly believing that the actors that were hired to pretend as his parents during the wedding as his real parents. He develops close ties with the couple and for the first time in his life, he experiences what it feels like to belong to a two-parent family. Later, the couple takes him in as their own son. Seol Hwa is the second daughter in the family who stays upbeat no matter how hard her life gets. One day, she comes across Seok Hoon, who is suffering from amnesia. Can she and Seok Hoon overcome the sticky threads of fate to fall in love? This romantic comedy revolves around an irritable doctor who abandons his profession to become a cook as he gets involved with a headstrong woman. (Source: MBC) Edit Translation

I just finished watching all 122 episodes and have been re-watching the series for more than half a dozen times from beginning to end. I really enjoyed the series because it tells us about how to live our lives to the fullest, and the meaning of families in our lives.

The wisdom and advice from Mr. Geum Jung-do to his adopted son (Dr. Han Seok-Hoon) and his three daughters (Geum Doo-na, Geum Seol-hwa, and Geum Se-na) are so meaningful and heartwarming. The phrases that Grandma Yoon uses also remind me of our elders when they describe the most basic rule of good manners.

Dr. Han Seok-Hoon and Miss Geum Seol-Hwa have excellent on-screen chemistry, one of the best I have ever seen, it is unrivaled by any other K-drama series. We really think they have been in love for centuries in “Golden Pouch”. I truly believe I am watching a true story rather than fictional K-drama series. Seol-Hwa is so lovely. Dr. Han is so kind and never gives up on his patients, including his love of his life "patient", Seol-Hwa. He is really serious on his work in the surgical theater. Dr. Han and Miss Geum Seol-Hwa's love is so pure and genuine.

However, I find the ending of the “Golden Pouch” series is inconclusive and unsatisfactory. There is no wedding for Dr. Han and Ms. Geum Seol-hwa nor do the Yoon and Geum families eat dumplings at the Dumplings Shop to conclude the drama series. I would be profoundly delighted if you could produce a two-hour feature TV movie that starts with the wedding between Dr. Han Seok-hoon and Ms. Geum Seol-hwa and ends with Yoon and Geum families eating dumplings together at the Dumplings shop.

I truly hope for a happy ending for both Yoon and Geum families, and for Dr. Han and Ms. Geum, a match made in heaven.

This review may contain spoilers
I don't want to reveal to much (I hate spoilers) so here is a short explanation. I did enjoy watching it but only because i have a lot of time on my hands, i took my time watching it and i found it was good to have on in the background while doing various other things(like cooking). I thought that the side couple (Doo Na & Min Kyoo) story was way more entertaining than the main couple but i think that about a lot of these long dramas. There was some hot kissing scenes and I think they did a good job pacing the drama. However,
everyone is an orphan! Really? 0_o no really its weird and funny at times but its so cliche,
I like cliches and if you do to then i recommend you watch this drama!
