Also known as: My Dad Loves Trouble

Synopsis

This drama started its life in theater, getting two encore runs thanks to its tremendous popularity and Jo Jae-Hyun’s leading role, but it was peculiar that its TV adaptation ended up being produced by Hong Seok-Gu, he himself one of the most talented alumni of the Dramacity canon. His was the brilliant black comedy 저수지 (Reservoir) from 2007, which is a good appetizer for this, but even those well acquainted with his work will be surprised by this little gem. With Jung Bo-Seok playing an irresponsible, selfish prick of a father leaving his family to save his bacon during the Korean War, and super-talented Shim Eun-Kyung playing his daughter Jo Gyeongsuk, this 4 episode special mixes very dark and wicked comedy with tragedy in such a breezy, eclectic way that you wonder if you’re really watching a Korean TV Drama, particularly considering how polished all this looks. Family love during the Korean War has never been this intelligent. Nor this funny.

    In a way, it’s amazing that a drama like this without a son of Chaebol, no secret past, no revenge had a good response from views.

    Maybe because it’s talking about good old days of Korea. Even if the past is riddled with was war and poverty, Korean people then may had some warmth of heart that is hard to find these days.

    Just because one does not like a show, it means it is ‘garbage’. This is not a show for everyone, but it does have its merits. It is a ‘black comedy’, which means there is humor in sad or tragic situations. It is definitely not a crowd pleaser, but it is different from the bunch of rich boy/poor girl or cute boy/pretty girl (cinderella) novelas.

    It’s about a poor family whose father only thinks of himself, before, during and after the Korean War. I t also shows how one person, with a different attitude and responsible ways, can make a family happy and secure. The end is sweet. It’s short ( 4 episodes) and not a waste of time
