Hi everyone, I'm hopelessly looking for some recent (from 2013 to now), heart-warming, Korean dramas that involves the death of parents and all the siblings are left taking care of each other :( One notable example can be "Ugly Alert", where the four siblings are orphans and the oldest brother has to take care of them as a "father".
I really, really appreciate your suggestions!!!! Thank you so much in advance!!
I can only think of a small number of dramas involving an orphaned lead and siblings who look after each other to some extent, but I'm afraid none of them have exactly the dynamic you're looking for. But just in case:
In Come and Hug Me, the FL's parents are murdered and her adopted brother is her only family left. The brother and later her manager (she's an actress) look after her in the years after her parents' deaths. Once she reunites with the ML they play a smaller role.
In Hello Monster, the ML's brother is kidnapped after their father is murdered. When they reunite as adults he helps and looks after his brother.
In Who Are You: School 2015, the FL is one of two twin orphans. Her sister is adopted by a rich family, but she is not. However, her sister keeps track of her and looks out for her from afar. Then a series of events ends up entangling their lives.
I want to thank all of you for your suggestions! You guys are awesome!
It seems that most of the dramas that fit what I'm searching for are either not recent or involving MLs as the one who are in charge.
I wonder if there is actually a shortage of FLs in this kind of drama. It also seems that my category is being too narrow and it is hard to find a drama that matches :P If I want to find a Korean drama involving a caring FL, the siblings/step-siblings do not have to be orphans, will there be more dramas that fit in?

I'll include all the dramas I can think of where the FL is caring, relatively young (i.e. not a mother), and looks after family members:
Just Between Lovers - FL looks after her mum who is grief-stricken and depressed for years after her sister dies in an accident (also the ML is an orphan and supports his sister financially by paying her tuition bills)
Coffee Prince - not recent but a great drama, the FL is the breadwinner for her family (her mum and little sister)
My Mister - the FL is an orphan and she looks after her disabled grandmother
What's Wrong With Secretary Kim - the FL gave up on her dream and instead became a secretary in order to pay off her father's debts and to support her sisters' tuition bills
About Time - the FL is the breadwinner for her family (her mum and younger brother)
