    I will give a try for this one. I only know the actor who plays the daddy.
    TVN has not deceived me so far with its dramas (except the ending of I Need Romance). They have a fresh tone, and well written stories.

  7. 7 : Vic Says:

    i’ve seen the first episode. this got to be one of the most weird korean dramas ever made.

  8. 8 : DB5K Says:

    I watched the first episode, and I LOVED it!! It was hilarious. I will never look at WXY the same way again, lol. The editing is rather avant garde for a family comedy drama, which may be disorienting for some viewers. For example, it has these random interview segments which reminds me of The Office. The humor can be very dry and deadpan, but it can also be very silly; I love the quick pace, the swearing, the evil looks, etc. For some reason this show also reminds me of Boston Legal, but maybe it’s because Lee Duk Hwa<33 reminds me of William Shatner.

    And yes, tvN is one of the more successful cable channels in Korea. I also really enjoyed their dramas, such as Fight (Mazzang), Manny, Flower Boy Ramen Shop, and Shut Up Flowerboy Band.

    i saw like 15mins of ep one…it gaves me headache due to the camera angle…its kinda shakey and it keeps on zooming in and out… ill give it a try again once my headache subsides

    If you like the American “Modern Family”, you will most certainly enjoy this show. Part drama, part comedy, this “drama-dy” has just the right level of dark and light to twist your face in laughter. It’s shot pretty much like Modern Family and has similar characters and subject matters, but the family problems are resolved the Korean way (meaning all the stuff is swept under the carpet and becomes piled up till it spills out from under in a tsunami-only to be swept back under the carpet in more clever ways). The characters are absolutely lovable and you will be left dreading that there are only 8 episodes.

  11. 11 : trish Says:

    hmm… if its a korean remake of modern family… r they gonna touch issues like sexuality? kind of like Life is Beautiful (SBS)?

  12. 12 : ayra Says:

    I love modern family …. gonna try watching this ..
    is it really only 8 episodes?

  16. 16 : Joey Says:

    I am fairly new to Korean dramas and just randomly selected this show from Hulu. I’m not Korean in the slightest bit (Jewish American), but this was by far one of the funniest shows I have ever watched. The characters are easily to relate to, the family dynamic feels real, and the actors really do a great job portraying their characters as each one has a unique personality. It’s definitely similar to Modern Family, which my wife watches regularly, but I never really got into it. 21st Century Family was more my style and I truly enjoyed it. Needless to say, I was incredibly bummed to find out that there were ONLY 8 episodes!!! This should have gone on for at least 2-3 more seasons. There are plenty of ups and downs families go through, especially when you live that close and have such a huge family, so that was really disappointing. If you’re okay with such a short series, I truly recommend this show. It is very much worth watching!
