Depicts the bromance of Goo Pil Soo, a breadwinner in his 40s who dreams for his second heyday, and Jung Seok, a genius in his 20s who dreams of his own start-up company. The drama will realistically portray relatable stories, including the recent social and education problems and the employment and start-up wars. At the same time, it will draw a harmony between different generations and create a warm comedy drama that everyone can sympathize with and watch comfortably. (Source: Soompi) Edit Translation

A caress to the heart!

I absolutely loved this drama! I loved how heartwarming it’s, how overall family oriented is. And how family values, integrity, compassion, and redemption are intertwined.

I loved how the loan shark is an old lady, that’s is a refreshing twist. Also loved how her character evolved e improved.

This drama is about HOPE, hope in our dreams that beyond everything they can come true. Hope in the community, it reinforces values of the love for your neighbor.

This drama dreams high of a better world and starts at a small place, a neighborhood.

It has a good amount of heartless vicious characters. Some will evolve some won’t.

Never Give up, although is not a romantic comedy, it’s about Love. Also it’s about people and the reunion of different generations, each one listening to the other, respecting other people point of view, taking advantage -in a good way- of older people life experience, and young people vision and knowledge.

Yes, it may sounds very far fetched some parts of the plot but not impossible, it can happen. You never know.

The casting was so well choose. A likable young entrepreneur Junk Seok, and a man in his forties Goo Pil So, a breadwinner ready to do anything legal to support his family.

That generational difference between a boisterous, loud, trying to seem charming and coming out sometimes a bit forced and awkward and; a cool, restrained, well educated, with tons of things to learn yet about himself and his entourage, is quite interesting and very well portrayed.

Goo Pil So: is a former athlete, a Taekwondo championship belt winner, with no college background. He is all heart, brawl, sweat, and force. He don’t mind do embarrassing jobs, if that ephemeral moment of embarrassment will fed and give a roof to his family.

Junk Seok, is a software genius in his late 20s, so ultra focused in his job that sometimes he used to lose contact with his partners needs, he will pay a high price for this.
The storyline will put him in an unexpected cohabitation situation with GPS and his family. He will have lots of improvement in his journey.

The other family members of GPS also have their own light time, making the story more rounded. The ML wife is a sweet character, her frenemies are quite hilarious, and make the story much more lighter when it gets a little too sad.

The old lady loan shark, a lonely sick elder will be the key to hold everything,

I particularly enjoyed everything about this drama. It has comedy, slice of life, business, family, friendship, “bromance”, Teenagers POV, and a few lowlife criminales to spice it up.

it's so heartwarming

this drama shows that family doesn't have to be blood related, that even bad people can have remorse and has warm heart.

the drama is focusing on two men, one with too much energy, and the other one is the one that always looks sulking. love that pilsu can make suk see that there are so many things you can see if you see from another perspective and be positive.

also this drama gives example that being kind is not only bring good things to other people, but also ourselves.
love this drama so much, glad i found this gem when i was scrolling my netflix.
