Synopsis

This drama attempts to send a message that any human being is beautiful by just existing in this world. People’s desire to have their say in everything, to succeed and to be beautiful stems from their deep-rooted disbelief in themselves. They are unable to love themselves the way they are. The underlying reason of the loss of interest in life is the disappointment with people. But even those who get disappointed with other human beings are negligent in loving their own selves.

The main character, Kim Min Ho was born into a family of a business tycoon but his family turned away from him because he was an illegitimate child. While having a hard time because of her mother’s re-marriages, Chung Soo Hee falls in love with Kang Min Ho, who turns out to be a friend of her boyfriend, Yoo Ji An. Frivolous Choi Mi Ri loves gangster Kang Ho Chul against her family’s wishes. Oh Young Sook calls herself “crazy” and disguises herself in a lie. All these people are linked together by the mute owner of an eatery in the neighborhood, an old woman named Mi Young.

    There is not much news about this drama. Since I like Chung Jung Myung so I watch it.
    This drama is way under-rated, it’s actually VERY GOOD ! I wish it gets more attention and publicity like other Korean dramas.
    I love the story line and all the characters except Ji-ahn.
    Highly recommended !!

    By the way, you can watch this drama in YouTube (english subtitle). Don’t watch it in tudou.co, TOOOOOO slow , it’s impossible to watch anything at that site.

    Dear Sir,
    PRODUCT ENDORSEMENT
    I can reach out to a market of 1.8 billion people.
    Let me endorse your products for quick sale. When the audience sees a specimen just like themselves (Chinese) but has alluring eyes, they will gravitate towards whatever I do. I will show them that I use your products. What pleases the eye, the heart goes with it. I am their role model.
    A survey of Xiamen University graduates in 2002 found that 54.3 per cent of new job seekers identified physical appearance as the defining factor in securing a position.
    Born epicanthic, I am the only person in the world who can crease my upper eyelid without surgery, stitches, tapes or glue.
    The Chinese are born without segmented upper eyelids and hate the sleepy look.
    Beauty is the most important thing for a woman, readily exchangeable for love, prestige or money. More so than education, aristocracy or fame.

    According to the Selig Center for Economic Growth, Asian Americans represented $253 billion in spending power in 2001, and this number is projected to reach $528 billion by 2009.

    The whole world wants to imitate the Americans. When Pepsi went to Nigeria, the natives abandoned their oranges for soda. They used a hot iron to press their hair and bleached their skin. When New Yorkers went to model clothes in Hong Kong, the Chinese drew lines in their slant eyes to fake creases. In the Philippines, they are crazy about all things American. The Fijians used to focus on food and they became obese. The advent of TV caused them to diet and look them like the Americans. Now the Chinese want to buy the gadgets that the Americans take for granted such as electric fans, telephones, washing machines, TVs, computers, motorcars and all the things that evoke status symbols.
    My home-made crease will lend authenticity to the ads.

    The first 4 episodes was drowning,cant find any interesting about it
    but when it hit the 5th episode the story begun to be interesting…

    It is a nice story because the story revolves not only on the 4 main characters but also to the extended cast like the grandma on the restaurant,the divorced ajumma,the bestfriend,the family,having their own stories and issues to resolve made it more interesting and worth to watch and also like watching 2 series in 1…

    Heartwarming story,higly commend on the deaf and mute scenes,teared up on that…and many more scenes that will warm your heart indeed..

    Still a good story but it could have been better….
