    @KDaddict just watch the first ep of this show the old man made me laugh with his nagging and denying that he does not nag, so far it looks pretty nice with the three brothers and their wife’s too ,

    Such a lovely show. There r no bad guys. Just members of a family, getting along, living their lives. The overly proud, arrogant daughter lawyer is the only person I don’t like. As she said, it was her own pride that caused her to be a single mother. At first her dentist brother was also annoying, but once he finds the woman he loves, he settles in nicely into their relationship. The maknae, youngest son and his little 17 yr old gf are so cute. They add youth, vitality and cuteness to the show. It just ended tonight. All’s well that ends well.

    Enjoy the show. I certainly did. This is the show that I love the most since I Miss You.

    This was such an outstanding drama, with a mature cast and wonderful storyline. It’s too bad that there isn’t an accurate English subtitle that really gives justice and understanding to the script. On the whole, it’s pretty deep with emotions and relationships, and the attempt at subtitles is so poor that you lose a great part of the meaning and interaction between family members. I really wish that the network would have provided a professional translation, especially when it got such outstanding ratings. Dramas like this one are few and far between.
