    Its a nice show…To those who has cable, catch the show at KBS World at sat & sun at 7pm(repeat) or 1am(new esp)…

  2. 2 : yy Says:

    Its also known as a happy woman…

  3. 3 : farihah Says:

    Hello there! Korean dramas has a lot of intrinsic and extrinsic value. The good combination of storyline, actors and actresses, natural performances and latest technology, culture and custom attract a lot of attention. From zero to hero is the best comment I could ever gave. However, I’m Malaysia and I only know reading in Bahasa Malaysia or English. Kindly, if you could translate some homepages in English it would be a very good chance for international audiences to know more about Korea.

  4. 4 : Tynice Says:

    wow! 50 episodes?! is this drama good?

  5. 5 : licia Says:

  6. 6 : gesila del rosarrio Says:

    i really love korean drama, especially a happy woman, it is aired in the philippines every saturday and sunday only and my day is not complete without watching it. an avid fan – jhez

  7. 7 : gesila del rosarrio Says:

    this drama shows how korean woman and filipino woman have in common, we are very loving but independent and responsible with regards to our family. my father introduce me to love korea, he was once lived there when he was young.

  8. 8 : Rowena Says:

    I think the lead female here is “Jakyung” of Love in Heaven? She is very pretty. I love her in Love in heaven (though haven’t finished it yet). And am really looking forward to this series because of her.

  9. 9 : xtine Says:

    Thanks for inform us.

  14. 14 : Vicki Says:

    Dear Admin,

    may i know the name of the baby girl actres in the movie? she played the daughter of Yun Jung Hee. thx

  15. 15 : rorie Says:

    I love wataching “Happy Woman”. I want Jiseon to end up with her ex husband Junho

  16. 16 : rorie Says:

    It’s love watching not ‘wataching” just a typo error. I really want them to reconcile. I really love this drama.

  17. 17 : xtine Says:

    This drama is good, I’am really curious to know the ending. Hopefully the ending is not tragic.

  18. 18 : Michelle Says:

    I really enjoy watching this drama! I want them to reconcile too, for the sake of their child. I don’t want a tragic ending, i want a happy ending! 🙂

  19. 19 : Liz Says:

    I really love this drama! I found the soundtrack to it on YesAsia.com. I was wondering if anyone knew where I could buy th series though. Is it even being sold? I really hope so!

  20. 20 : Mimi Says:

    Well, I just watched the last episode today. I love it. I like Jiyeon to end up with Teasop. She will be happy.

  21. 21 : Del Dawe Says:

    Hi from Dubai – Middle East,

    I have just watched the last episode today but wonder about the ending.
    Would it be really Junho or Taesop afterall. Taesop is in critical condition and she is about to see him. Is the writer/producer would like us, viewer to decide? I am learning a lot about the culture and country by watching dramas and other TV entertainment w/ English subtitle. I am loving the place and even wish to go on tour. I have now acquired a Korean Phrasebook. See you soon Korea!!

  22. 22 : rorie Says:

    At first, i’m happy that jiseon and junho got back together, but then it’s quite confusing what is the ending? did she choose taesop over junho when she left the house, or it’s just she’s just too worried for taesop and just want to know his condition. I hope it’s just that coz it looks good seeing junho, jiseon and eunji together as a family. I didn’t quite like the ending…..

  23. 23 : Elea Says:

    finished watching this show. indeed its a very nice show but i am very very disappointed with the ending.

  24. 24 : maria Says:

    Yes, I found the ending a real disappointment too. In the first place, why does it say in the synopsis that she is torn between the 2 men? She went back to Junho like she was walking to the gas chamber! And did she run out of the house without money or carkey to symbolise she is abandoning her daughter to Junho to be with Taesop? It is a stupid ending because 1) if she goes to Taesop (assuming he survives), she would not be happy abandoning her daughter and essentially their families since their mothers are against the match and 2) if she stays with Junho, she will not be happy because she is thinking of Taesop all the time and I think in time, Junho will be thoroughly sick of her moping around. If she is meant to be with Junho, they should show them happy together! I felt like I wasted all my time watching this show for this terrible ending!

  25. 25 : ivy Says:

    I remember the first episode she had a dream that she will go through hardships and then at the end will be filled with much happiness and blessings. Well the ending falls far short of it. Dream big but the producers failed to deliver. Anyway, I agree that the plot is daft.

  26. 26 : unknown man Says:

    why yoon jung hee hair in this drama so short…i more like her hair in “love in heaven”.more beauty ^^

  27. 27 : Cat Says:

    hey, anyone please, i’m a fan of the drama but failed to watch the last few episodes coz i have a business travel, can you tell me what happened in the end? did JIyeon chose her ex-husband or Teasop?

  28. 28 : fraulein Says:

    Not sure where u stopped but the 2nd last ep had everyone from jiyeon;s mum to everyone in junho’s family encouraging jiyeon to take him back – incl that dowager mum of his and the sister in law. even her friend jongmi asked her to reconsider junho because she doesnt want jiyeon to be alone for the rest of her life.
    For eunji’s sake, jiyeon chose junho albeit v reluctantly, but she ran out of the hse upon hearing on the evening news that taeseop was critically injured in a shootout with a criminal. It ended there. YIKES!!!! Hate the ending !!!!!

    It’s obvious the writers want viewers to decide the ending themselves…
    As a huge fan of the junho-jiyeon-eunji combination, i’d like to think she ran out to see taeseop one last time, because if she were to choose taeseop she has to get his mother’s blessings. That part was not dealt with and even at the end, it did not seem like she was gonna budge. So yes, if i wrote the ending, i’d make her choose junho. (they look great as a family tog)

    i am desperate to get my hands on the dvd, missed the first 20 or so episodes. i have searched high and low but cant find it, can someone pls help?? esp readers from korea.. heard it hasnt been released in parts of asia yet. pls check with KBS if they intend to release it at all? Help- cos i cant speak/read korean !! Thanks : )
    Wow – surprised to see viewers from the middle east too.. : )

  29. 29 : belle fry Says:

    I totally love this drama…never missed an episode…the couple should get back together…..it’s important junho loves the woman and the fact they have a daughter…the mother will endure in the end…as I’ve read the other comments..I tend to agree, that it would be up to the viewers to end it in their own satisfaction….taesop will die…that’s it..so she has to see him one last time..then move on with the daughter and junho and start to be happy again for good….therefore…a blissful woman in the end.

  30. 30 : OPUS Says:

    I personally think the ending is going to be jiyeon and taeseop being together. When she heard the news about taeseop, she was about to go see him. She turned around to see junho and eunji and decided that she has to pick taeseop instead. The camera showed both junho,eunji, and jiyeon about twice. I think this indicates that she will pick taeseop instead.
    Well, this is what my ending is…Good Drama~

  31. 31 : Sp Says:

    very disaapointed with the nding. It should be a happy ending.

  32. 32 : Jonathan Says:

    Wanna to see this complete drama with english subtitle or you wanna get the soft sub. You can check it for a several day at


  33. 33 : aafita Says:

    I am TOTALLY disgusted with the ending!!! What a waste of my time, and no matter what, she is abandoning her daughter for her lover. Wow, no motherly instinct whatsoever. I wouldn’t recommend this drama to anyone to watch. Do something better with your time, I wish I did!!!!

  34. 34 : Miss May Says:

    I was disappointed with the ending too but it is unclear whether or not she’s just running out to check on her taesop or be with him. regardless, it was a good drama and i looked forward to watching every episode.

  35. 35 : ooi Says:

    very good drama,but hated the ending,The author should have added another episode at the end,she ran out to check on teasop,find him in icu half dead,unconcious again,she cry and cry her hearts out…..follow by junho and eunji looking at the mother beside the hospital bed…..they help her to look after teasop till his recovery…and junho accepted her friendship and tender loving care towards taesop…as teasop has saved eunji ‘s life before…after and during the process she found out that her love towards teasop is more like a brotherly love…it should end with a tenderly soft look at junho and give him a warm embrace to ease his pain of loving her in the whole drama…ooh we wasted so much time wathching junho in PAIN,so sad…….I prefer HAPPY ENDING,family united,After junho only drifted into the extra marital affair without plan….

  36. 36 : Hollywood Says:

    Ooooooh, crap. I was going to watch. Since the ending is going be left hanging, I will pass. There are other dramas worth watching then. I saw the lead actress in Love in Heaven and her acting gave a slow motion sense of feeling.
    Not very impress with her acting.

  37. 37 : Carmela Says:

    I like this drama….. But I’m really curious about the ending of this drama….. Is it really Junho or Taesop????? But If I was asked, If you will analyze the ending, I think Jiyeon will go to Taesop….. Because she looked at Junho and Eunji but still she ran out of the house when she heard the news….. It’s really nice to see the family together again….. but – Junho or Taesop????? I think they really did that to make the viewers decide….. But anyways, this is really a good drama…..

  38. 38 : tinkerbell Says:

    Thanks for all the comments. I was also wondering on how it ended having missed the last few episodes.

    Luckily, I didn’t see the ending otherwise I’d be too disappointed.

    I’ll go for Junho anytime.

  39. 39 : CS Says:

    English Subtitle Please.
    Waited impatiently.

  40. 40 : blakforest Says:

    please upload the next episode… why is it there’s no available copy of this drama, i’ve been looking since it was announced… please help me where can i buy a copy of this…

  41. 41 : sunshine Says:

    what kind of ending is that? it is frustrating. from the very beginning of the story it flows well but how come that the ending comes out bad. it leaves a puzzle to the viewer. hope there’s a sequel to this drama as to what happened to her family especially if she was reunited with her husband. you should improve your endings to every korean drama you make. i really love to watch korean drama.

  42. 42 : Goong Ju Says:

    Nice drama. Very heartwarming & touching. I know is kind of fustrating to watch such an ending, well that is typical korean drama which always leave you a guessing ending so accept it

  43. 43 : Hannah Says:

    I really want to know Eun Ji name(kid in that series).If somebody know her name.Let me know.I really like this Drama.And,Eun Ji is so so cute.:)
    I really love her.

  44. 44 : luvkimjiho Says:

    One of the korean dramas i like best. Really really nice and great to watch!!! i luv the actress and her kid in this drama. And also the eldest sis(funny one).
    Btw, i saw the scene of actor(Jun Ho) and actress(Ji Yeon) with their kid(Eun Ji) in Everland Park when i was in Korea. I was so surprised when i first saw that scene.
    But so pity that i m not allowed to enter the restricted area of filming. So, i just saw it from quite far distance. I saw that the actor holding the cotton candy to the bench where actress and kid r sitting. Oh…i felt really surprised and filled with joy.
    If only i could go nearer, i might get their signs.

  45. 45 : ginkofan Says:

    didn’t tae seop die at the end?? In my dvd, the subtitle says that tae seop was killed. Everyone in this forum says that he is critically injured, so it must be a typo then in the subtitles…anyone?

  46. 46 : sang hee Says:

    i started watching this drama last night & got disappointed till it stopped at ep 5 — i think it’s a very good drama & i like kim seon hoon of Tomato drama series! i still think she should end up with taesop cause her husband left her for another woman anyway! too bad this dvd doesn’t seem to be available anywhere?

  47. 47 : fina sokoro Says:

    i had watched happy woman in the cable channel here in the philippines from episode 5 to 58. I had’nt missed an episode then. Infact i had watched each twice. I had to wake up at the wee hours of sunday and monday mornings. i had always looked forward to the weekend screening.

    the story i guess had lapses in terms of communicating values to the viewers especially those that needed parental guidance. to those who are of age and experienced it stirred animosity to the antagonists.

    junho’s friends condoned the illicit affair which was instigated by a classmate who was bereft of morality. in fact the doctor friend could be blamed for the break up. he could have called down the other woman for ingratiating herself to a married man who was their classmate and a close friend as well. he could also have ran to junho’s rescue by explaining his participation. his friends were indeed a bunch of calculating dafts who are demoralized by affluence. of course, i don’t exempt junho from the blame for submitting to the guiles of a morally abandoned woman.

    junho’s mom was another unlikely character. but her monster in-law image was softened by some instances like opposing divorce of the couple, wanting to warn the other woman of the affair, and swallowing her pride by begging jiyeon and her family to reconcile with her son.

    despite the lapses, i had ended the story by rewarding junho for his repentance with a happy stable life with jiyeon and their children. with jiyeon leaving to see taesop, it was out of good intention – an opportunity to return the favor for saving the life of eunji. certainly junho saw that chance in the same light. this is just an expression of my personality…

    many hope to see junho in more films. his role in “happy woman” was more suitable to his personality than that in” women of the sun”. more power to him.

  49. 49 : sunnieLUVS Says:

    Does anyone know another place I can watch this drama at? I tried the link that Johnathan suggested but I won’t load. Please some one help me!

  50. 50 : eugene Says:

    So Sad !!! So Dissapponted because at the ending scene, Jee Yeon chose the police man and left her husband and her daughter. I thouhgt that she gave Joon Ho a chance and that is the ending but unfortunately, she rushed out the door and that the end. the scene when Joon Ho was holding Eun Jin and called her name but she just turn around looked at them and rushed outside the door. That was really sad! I dont want to watch it again.

  51. 51 : eugene Says:

    I was really disappointed at the end. She chose the police guy. When Joon Ho was holding Eun Ji and calling her name, she just turned around and looked at them, then rushed outside the door. So Sad when i was watching the ending scene. So disappointed!

  52. 52 : diefan Says:

    watch it through this link…


  53. 53 : mutiara Says:

    sad story?

  54. 54 : mel Says:

    is it a drama with sad ending?

  55. 55 : nining Says:

    love korean drama much,,

  56. 56 : ok250682 Says:

    Another must watch drama – Gumiho – Tale of a Fox child. – The picture look scary but actually the drama is not scary but exciting. The actors and actresses including the kids all acted very very well.

    My Girlfriend is a Gumiho – also very nice. YOU WILL KEEP LAUGHING

  57. 57 : Nice drama Says:



  58. 58 : love kdrama Says:

    can anyone tell me, the ending is sad? is the police guy died?
    i hope that , the police guy alive, ooooooooo so disappointed.
    they are a good match.

  59. 59 : indah Says:

    I love Yoon Jung Hee mostly in Love in Heaven. She’s just perfect with Lee Tae goon, but what about her in Blissful Women??? Ummhh… well, I still love her and will always be…

  60. 60 : aswishes Says:

    i also need to buy the dvd, I’am in Thailand ,and just watch from website, there are only 20 episodes some can watch but not all..where can I buy it with english subtitles please….

  61. 61 : Tilney Says:

    The ending is suck. Ji Yeon gave Jun Ho a chance because of her daughter but when she heard the news that Tae Seop was in danger because he was doing an important mission. Ji Yeon worried and finally, she rushed to the door. Jun Ho was holding Eun Ji and called her name, wondered what happened to her. She only looked back and eventually ran out. That was the ending.

    I don’t like this ending just simply because I want Ji Yeon, Jun Ho and Eun Ji live happily ever after. The way Ji Yeon left her husband and her daughter for her love is also make me hate the ending.

  62. 62 : doll Says:

    I not yet watch this drama at the end as there r only 20 esipodes..can’t find where have 21 – 58 esipodes?

    As I read those comments above. really? she choose the police guy??
    Thats better for me..I like the police guy than Joon Ho. Yahoooo!!!!

    Coz Joon Ho made a mistake..How can he had dating with another women while he had a wife. Can’t accept him like that.. Thats mean he is not mature man. As you see that he want to suicide by jump at the flat. That really inmature man..If he really love his wife, just simple he shd refuse the women’s offer..he shdn’t dating wt the women only coz she was his mate either she will leave for US. Of course his wife can forgive him but thats not easy coz this really hurt her. if you are in this condition, would you accept him like that?? I can forgive him but can’t accept him as husband..coz if there r most beautiful and sexiest women, he will do same things in the future..

    But the police guy is more mature,caring and u’standing man. I love him..ji yeon is match wt him.. thats better than with Joon Ho..

    Good job!!!

  63. 63 : Nina Says:

    I am watching this show on KBS. This is one strange station, it does not follow regular screenings. So annoying. Anyway, I am glad ji yeon chose tae sop.

    The husband cheated on her after 1 year of marriage??? Not even 7 year itch. And he was so lame brain that the awful woman manipulated him by pretending to commit suicide, then he got into her car so that he could say good bye when he knew it would hurt his wife terribly to be near that home wrecker. Really… Imagine rushing to the hospital and seeing your stupid husband next to his ex mistress. All my love and trust would disappear….

  64. 64 : Yolly Says:

    I have been following the drama,A happy woman,and can’t wait to see the end, although from what I read from the other viewers comment it was a dissapointing end.maybe there is a part 2?

  65. 65 : chaimoon Says:

    If I know my husband cheated on me, all my love for him will fly out of the window. If I look as good as the leading lady I would not waste my time with an unfaithful husband. Bye and out you go dude!

  66. 66 : chaimoon Says:

    Girls you should love the man who is there for you in your darkest hour, right? The police guy was always there and loves her very much. Don’t waste your love for a person who can love you only because you happen to bear his child otherwise he could have married that rich, wretched woman? Got that?

  67. 67 : chaimoon Says:

    It is also a fact that Korean dramas are so expert is building up the plot and the characters but eventually goes flat in the final episode. There are bound to be questions left unanswered, issues unresolved and it just ends flat! So frustrating at time! Calling good scriptwriters. Do your stuff from beginning to end and not only in the beginning, ok!

  68. 68 : wongel Says:

    I really like that a single dad and mom fall in love decide to get married. I really love this drama because every time I see it I get real excited. so I wanna say thank you and great job for those of you in the drama.

  69. 69 : ayra Says:

    I am just recently start watching this drama on KBS World.
    It is shocking to know that kind of ending. Her stepmother is going to be her mother-in-law??
    I think I am going to stop watching this drama now.

  70. 70 : Liz Says:

    For anyone who has yet watched the whole drama or just watched only the first 20 episodes, please don’t think that your judgement about Jun Ho is right. You gotta watch it carefully with the subtitle to understand how his character changed as the drama progressed. After that, you can write whatever you want to say about this drama w/o anyone complaint.

  71. 71 : kd Says:

    …it is a good ending for me. She is with the police guy.

  72. 72 : ajkj Says:

    To anyone, who’s complaining about jun ho, I think you should first watch the whole drama before saying bad about him. He did not cheat that time.There’s just a misunderstanding.

    To the writer, its really frustrating that you did not ended the story.I think you should stop writing anymore. Stories like that sucks. At the end, its the story has no sense at all.

  73. 73 : cemre Says:

    저는 한국 말할 수 있지만 그 동안 당신이 과거를 알고있다면 터크 터키어 말하기가 날 오전에 연락하면 알고리는 민 호의 팬이야?

  74. 74 : cemre Says:

    I can not speak Korean but I’m a fan of Lee Min Ho who knows if in the meantime I am Turk Turkish speaking contact me if you know the past?

  76. 76 : sangjhoon Says:

    i just finished watching this drama coz of Kim suk hoom & it’s an open ending but i believe she went back to Kim tae sup! she really loves him in spite of the complex they were in!

  77. 77 : Nori Says:

    I’ve watched this drama a few times already. And I agree that to those who haven’t finished this drama or watching without subtitle , please do not make bad comments about Jun Ho character! You must watch it carefully with English subtitle to see how his character changes throughout the show which make him become even better and more mature than he was before. I don’t know if any one you noticed that the writer of this drama is the same writer of I Love You Don’t Cry. Her writing style is almost very similar. In both show, the couple preparing to get married but later found out the problems caused by their family members. In ILYDC, Mi Soo’s aunt (her biological mother) was having affair with Young Min’s uncle-in-law which caused her wedding cancelled due to YM’s objection and BW, Ji Yeon’s father is Tae Sup’s stepfather and Tae Sup’s mother wanted to cancel the wedding. Ji Yeon then got back with Jun Ho just like Mi Soo chose to marry Hyun Woo. Both dramas also have open ending. However, let’s face the reality, I don’t think Ji Yeon and Tae Sup will get married as if there’s nothing happen. How can she face her in-law when her father becomes her stepfather-in-law? How do their in-laws face each other when Tae Sup’s step father left his family for Tae Sup’s mother? Just like in ILYDC, how can Mi Soo get back with Young Min when her aunt was the problem caused his aunt to divorce her husband? It’s not like Mi Soo will never meet her aunt again even though she already left for America. After all, she is still a member of her family. They will get to see each other again.
