A family is no longer tied to the same bloodlines alone. Many new families are being formed through remarriage. However, it is more difficult for the members of such blended families to accept each other especially when their parents are remarried later in life. This TV series talks about the true meaning of the marriage and the value of family by showing the people who dream of a new love and life in later life.
Cast & Credits
in my humble opinion, the beauty of this drama lies in its quiet storytelling. the dynamics of dysfunctional families and how they were able to resolve their conflicts were all told through honest, thorough conversations and quiet moments. no meanies or baddies here to mess up the lives of our families but just families in conflict within and by themselves.
compared to a lot of the family dramas that i've seen, this is by far very well-written and portrayed with aplomb especially by the oldest OTP i have ever shipped!
overall, i still give this an 8! i eagerly awaited each episode every week while it was airing. rewatch value is only a 6 because i seldom rewatch anything anyway due to the heavy load of dramas on my watch list. =)
The story-line kept me guessing (though I thought I'd seen it all) and never strayed from its initial promise: you will Love this series and EVERY character who strutted and fretted across the screen. (For what it's worth, Eun Ju has got to be the cutest young Lady in the genre); but, I digress. Though things may not have turned out as I would have wanted them to from the start, it carried me along from title to credit-roll without apology as to how it had shaken my normally stoic emotional state. The underlying music was tasteful and held the script together without being pedantic, campy or unnecessarily over-sentimental.
Performances were masterful and made me believe that no improvements were necessary; if 'improvement' were at all possible. A true delight. If I'm ever cabin-bound in the mountains with a weeks worth of time and a solid internet connection, I could revisit 'Give Love Away' (or, 'A Little Love Never Hurts') set it on auto-play and watch every moment again without taking, wanting or needing a break in the flow.
