It's all about keeping the family together and staying sane in the face of life in this weekend drama which ran for 56 episodes. Starring Moon So Ri (The Legend), Lee So Yeon (Temptation of an Angel) and Jin Yi Han (Who Are You?), My Life's Golden Age follows the relationships between three siblings and their parents through romance, sibling rivalry, illness, marriage, careers and dreams both lost and attained. It showcases both familial and romantic relationships with wit and sparks. When two previously divorced people get married and raise their children together, they name their children after the golden period of life, hwang-geum-ki, hoping that their children will reach this period in life sooner than they did. They have no idea what their children will have to go through before reaching hwang-geum-ki, however. Lee Hwang (played by Moon So Ri), the eldest daughter, has been married for five years with a daughter and a succesful career, but underneath she is anything but happy. When she runs into an old flame, she embarks on a reckless path. Lee Geum, the second duaghter, has chronic myelogenous leukemia, a serious condition which constantly takes a toll on her life and happiness. Bright and cheerful, however, she pours her energy into her job as a track team coach, while secretly trying to repay her birth father's hospital bills. Lee Ki (Jin Yi Han), the youngest son, succesfully graduated from med school and became an intern at a hospital, but his real dream is to become a musical actor. When he quits the hospital in order to take dance lessons, he must hide it from the rest of his family while dealing with his sisters' issues. Enter Ko Kyung-Woo (Shin Seong-rok), a TV producer at a major network whose success has made him arrogantly indifferent to the troubles of others. When he and Lee Geum meet, sparks fly but can he learn to care about her, especially with her disease? Lee Ki, meanwhile, has another problem - he just might be falling in love with his sister-in-law... Edit Translation

Another drama just completely ignored, even bad dramas got more attention.
I am not saying this drama was not perfect...but it was good! It did its job. I was caught off guard, captivated, intrigued, I laughed, cried and most important did not lose interest.
I ask myself why?? does this drama have little or no recognition. My personal opinion only but I think sometimes cast, latest technologies to create beautiful scenery etc., and mood and trends of that particular time dictate popularity over substance. Popularity lessens as the drama gets older for most. This drama seemed even older than when it was released in 2008. I believe more people would rather not watch simply because its considered to old to relate to. All dramas have the same goal to keep people watching no matter what reason. If your reason to watch dramas is simply to watch your kpop idol or the latest styles and outfits without care of substance than just skip this drama.

I recommend this simply because it was good.

OST was a definite plus!
