Kimchi Family was a gamble for me. I didn't find the synopsis for it all that exciting and I didn't even know who Song Il Gook was. I only started watching because Park Jin Hee was in it and I loved her in Giant and recognized her from the drama Still Marry Me... Story- The first episode was just really interesting and the chemistry between the leads was so good. The possibility of a romance between them led me to want to continue watching and see what this drama was all about. As the drama unfolded I became more intrigued as there was a bit of mystery to some characters and how they were connected. . The romance was sweet and subtle as the plot was more about the main character finding out who he is and about his past. The synopsis doesn’t do this show justice, as yes its about the family ties that develop between the people who work and live at Earth and Man but its so much more. It’s heartwarming, engaging, and emotional. The ending is bittersweet. Acting/Cast- Wonderful acting by the entire cast. Not just the main actors but the supporting cast as well. Everyone made their characters stand out. I loved all the characters and they really felt like a family to me. I'm glad I got introduced to SIG because I’ll definitely be watching out for other things he’s in=) Music- Interesting score that fit the scenes really well. The OST was very good but nothing I’d listen to out of the show. Rewatch- I’d definitely watch this again but not too soon. Overall Kimchi Family was a pleasure to watch and I will definitely miss watching every week.
