    Agree with you #22…The writer should stressed out and explain how is it possible to put a patient in a mental institution.It really looks stupid to me…It doesnt make sense at all…Im sorry…

    I checked out this drama coz I was curious about this show which rating has dramatically climbed up and become leader of the weekend’s 10 pm slot.

    I think these 3 main factors contributed to the high rating:

    – it has the typical makjang ingredients especially evil mother-in-law (MIL), no-good husband and Candy type daughter-in-law who is our pitiful heroine. Notice Korean viewers especially the older ones really like to watch this type of show where the heroine is being patiently bullied by her MIL.

    -presence of so many veteran actors( a quick count of at least 8) and most of them have acted in popular dramas like Baker King, Secret Garden, Family Honor etc)

    – fans of Eugene who miss her since this is her first drama after her marriage. Not sure about the fanbase of the male lead. I have not heard of him prior to this drama and I am still not drawn to his looks even after watching 4 eps.

    Just in 4 episodes, we see extreme makjang elements – when the heroine has enough of her sufferings and wanted to break free by divorcing her no- good husband, she was locked up in a mental hospital against her will without no adequate explanation how that can be done so speedily when the hospital is supposed to be professionally managed. To add salt to the wound and prolonging her suffering, she has amnesia when she managed to escape from the hospital and ended up back at her MIL’s home at square one for her to suffer all over again!

    Gosh, don’t think I have the stamina to continue watching since this show will have at least 50 eps, maybe more if rating continues to go up. Can’t blame the broadcast station to take advantage of further extension as most successful weekend K dramas are based on this family makjang genre which is so popular with Korean viewers unlike the international viewers’ appetite.

    Sorry, I mean at least 9 veteran actors

    @KDaddict #52:

    if you can get past several mind boggling issues in this drama viz d ridiculously insane/jealous mother-in-law who throws her daughter-in-law into a mental ward as a way of slowly getting rid of d wedge in between her son n herself…its laughable d excuse given for her doing so…a mother getting jealous ovr her son’s affections for his wife???

    if you can put this behind you, forget d crazy mother-in-law n watch this drama solely for d very excellent performance of eugene, d various n many veterans….all famously renowned for their acting prowess, a super duper handsome male lead….his eyes are gorgeous when he smiles n such broad n strong shoulders for d female lead to lean on….you’ll be tempted to follow this drama till d end!

    this drama i suspect must be 50 epis n above coz of d number of famous faces all roped in to convey d story of noodle making n eugene’s triumph when she finally builds up her own business empire!

    “if you can get past several mind boggling issues in this drama viz d ridiculously insane/jealous mother-in-law, ……”. That’s A helluva Lot to get pass tho. LOL. Thx.
    At any given time, there r 36 KDs airing on tv. I can only watch 2-3 concurrently, so I pick carefully, to maximize my enjoyment.
    Korea has no lack of actors who can act well. For me the story has to make no sense 1st n foremost. I’ve had to skip many dramas featuring my fav actors.

    i plan to watch this drama because i love Eugene but since everyone are saying it could be 50 ep., i think i should wait until it ends, scape the dragging part and enjoy the show. :) I don’t have much time to watch a long series. So far May Queen is the only exception. I manage to watch it ’til the end just because of my affection to KJW, but this time i should think twice before keep going on.

    sam Says:

    @57 YES fully agree with you, I am pleasantly surprised by the assemble of so many veteran ,all are my favourite. And of cos Eugene , also I can feel some chemistry with the male lead already. So I will definitely watch although at times I cannot bear the makjung factor.

    ptsh836 Says:


    shall we viewers all gang up, carry some placards n protest against d ‘makjang factor’ in kdramas??? it not only tortures us with d nonsensical, brainless, unbelievable, idiotic aspects of watching kdramas! why does d writer think we are all stupid viewers n will accept whatever sh*t that gets thrown our way??? i think its abt time we make our voices heard…we demand intelligent, thinking scripts not any other rubbish!

    d god-da*n mother-in-law deserves to be lock up somewhere outside earth n have d key disappear forever! she is spoiling d whole drama with her over-acting (she always does it fr d days of ‘all abt eve’ till now…no improvements whatsoever!) she’s got plans aplenty up her sleeves in torturing our heroine n making her life hell! i hope eugene divorces her mama-boy husband as quickly as possible…

    this is d only sore point in this drama while d rest of d story is interesting n well done. eugene’s acting here is superb n excellent while lee jung jin still needs to warm up a bit…

    Why offer series only two days a week???
    Knowing series 50 episode or more ??

  22. 72
    mml Says:

    I will tell of the viewers , the total episodes are 50
    All ladies like me will love this drama, the evil mother in law will make me curious, how Eugene so smart and clever can escape from the big bully mother in law???

    To know the answer we must continue to watch…….

    I am curious how the members of the family deal with each other when they will live in one roof, soon the father will announce to the family members that if one of the family members gets interested in running the business, he/she shall inherit theland and the noodle house which costs a billion won! I am also curious how eugene will react if her memory gets back..the acting of eugene in this drama is superb and the veterans are all great! I love jeon inhwa,i love her character in this drama! I will continue to watch this drama.It’s worth my time and effort.
