This was a great daily drama! It started beautifully and ended beautifully! I really enjoy daily dramas like this one and others I have watched that are similar in style ;) I liked how all the characters stayed true to their nature/personalities even as they went through different things. I liked how they didn't dramatically change their character throughout the drama (like some dramas make characters do), we all have our own personality/traits/beliefs/way of doing things - and these characters stuck to that as they went through various trials and situations. It also easily transitioned from on thing to the next - it had a nice flow to it. I had read a negative comment before I started this drama and I constantly worried about it and was afraid to say it's really good b/c I thought I might say that too soon and then "oops" I jinxed it - but NO - there is NO need to worry - NO situation that arises messes anything up! So go at it safely and continue! :D Enjoy!!!

Characters: My favorites were Han Chaewon, Seo Jinu & Han Minhyeok, I loved everything about them! <3 I'd fall in love with Jinu so easily^^ and Minhyeok is a definite candidate too with his intelligent, strong and smart good looks ^^ Jinu has lots of emotional wounds ground into him from his father, he's a doctor and a really loyal son, who is sweet, compassionate, loving and smiles a lot :D Chaewon is "the happy virus" lol as her friend calls her^^ She's strong, independent and very loving, when she sets her mind to something she doesn't let it go (stubborn if you will) :P Her character never got weak or worn down, she had strong beliefs and made sure people understood that. She stands her ground well. I loved her the most! Minhyeok is Chaewon's brother and he too grows up with lots of emotional wounds but that doesn't change who he is or how he acts - I loved that no matter how someone in his family treated him, he would still be loyal to them and love them, he isn't greedy and is very well-mannered (a gentleman one might say), He doesn't trust people easily (which is actually a good thing in his profession). I felt for each of these characters, I'd cry with them and smile with them! I laughed quite a lot too - especially when it came to Jinu & Chaewon ;P

There is also Cha Kyeongju, her character feels like a victim and since she has this "victim mentality" she does things that she thinks she has a right to b/c "the world owed her", I liked her and didn't like her at the same time, I felt for her at times and wanted to kick her butt other times lol I could never fully hate her (honestly she never did anything that ticked me off that much - sure she did bad things and things you can't brush off or ignore, things she never should have done - but she did know when to back off on certain things. I even cried with her a little at the end.

The supporting characters were good and enjoyable to watch as well (I didn't skip anyone ever or any scene) I got slightly annoyed with Jingu's childish acts and his wifes constant complaining but they were amusing at time too. I never warmed up to their daughter Jina (such a crybaby >_<) I'm glad she wasn't shown too often. Jinhui was really adorable, a bit of a troublemaker, but she'd laugh all the time and her voice when she sings is So BEAUTIFUL!!! I loved her song "To My Dad" that she sings later in the series^^ The grandmas is hilarious and adorable^^ The Dad made me mad so many times with how he treats his kids -_- I wanted to speak up for his kids whenever the dad would say or do mean things to them and when he wouldn't listen to them I wanted to yell at him to shut up and LISTEN!!! His kids, even if they get hurt by him, are really filial towards him, which I found impressive!

Music: The intro song by C-Real is really cutesie (and i love cutesie intro songs to my daily dramas lol) I loved one song the most though : "Have You Listened" by Yu Seung Chan and Jangeunsuk "Reason to Live" (it was only played one time but I liked it and it really brought the emotions of the moment). There was another song that was only played a few times by RH? and it was really pretty too (but i can't find it) and Jinhui's "To My Dad" song was really beautiful^^

I will more than likely re-watch this drama at some point lol <3 and I definitely recommend it to people who love these kinds of long dramas^^

Started good but...

It started off great, the likable characters were likable and the unlikable ones were unlikable. However, that didn't last very long before the drama started showing its cracks. Once we got a few scenes in the bread company I knew where things were going and what to expect. The usual cyclical corporate hell, love to hate them. The story wasn't eventful enough to fill its runtime, more often than not the writer ran into a corner and had to throw something random to stir the pot. An example of that is the end of ep69, completely random and unprompted. This also resulted into some strange pacing issues. All of the four leads got into a relationship and reached the "I love you" stage illogically fast despite them having a very recent ex-partner. Meanwhile, the next stage took a millennial to get to. How does the writer expect us to care about the couples if they don't let their relationship develop initially? The pacing issues continue when the main conflict of the drama concluded almost halfway through!

Some characters were so damn worthless and redundant, such as Chae Won's friend (Bang Sook) who served no purpose other than being a feedback loop (literally) and then she was never seen again in the second half! Speaking of characters, Jin Woo's father had the worst plotline. During which, the drama hit rock bottom and the female antagonist was almost never seen. Therefore, there wasn't much tension after that and things got really stale. The lack of tension also resulted into a weak climax, or kinda no climax? I would rather watch Gyung Joo being a trashy menace and a headache over the cringy father. Most people would stick around just for the main couple Chae Won & Jin Woo being cute.
