    CoolBeans Says:

    Ryu Hwayoung, her scandalous real life behavior and her twin should be ignored. She is not the main lead in this excellent drama! Her performance is mediocre at best. The best parts of this great drama are the top stars and good script. It is very clear why it is No. 1 i the ratings after seeing only 4 episodes.

    Most of the characters are connected by fate and karma, The writer allows the viewer to see potential issues before they arise which gives a good feel of the direction and conflicts up ahead. The viewer is not left guessing. But, their are still surprises, passionate post drunk moments, a lot of comedy (girl fight) and lots of drama for Lee Joon. His crying tears at my heart! This is a must watch.

    I can’t wait for the father to bring Lee Joon (Son) into his family. Now it’s so intriguing to see Lee Joon hating on his father. I also can’t wait to see Lee Joon romance with Jung so min! One week two episode is too less!

    BJun Says:

    Oh dear lord, this Mi Young is so full of self inflicted doubts and angst in everything she does, to the extent that she is such a painful sight to watch.

    What’s with her?

    Come on girl ! You are no more a kid. Who cares about the nasty woman who seems to be your eternal ghost haunting you. Just do your thing and live your life, girl.Take your mum as an example and learn something from her – your mum does not allow a nasty landlord to trample over her.

    Lee Yoo Ri’s character is so darn entertaining, she spices up this drama which is already superb. She seem to be having fun with the part.

    Francis Says:

    I love this drama, The cast is amazing. i am grateful that Lee Yoo ri was caste this caracter was fated for her, i need this more than twice episode per week. I love the main cast. Waiting for Mi Young and Joong Hee story line to develop. The soccer coach must improve his acting skills, Ryu Hwa Young so so there is something in her acting that not convince me.

    USA Says:

    Speed of this drama is good, good acting by parents and the oldest daughter, while other female & male actors are so-so. Personal relationships in today’s dramas are quite disappointing. The morality of Korean society and culture is going bankrupt – where cohabiting is rationalized from economic and financial perspectives] to justify before marriage. That’s what happened in the US – save money on rent! The divorce rate in the states? 1st Marriage ends in 50% divorce; 2nd ends in divorce 75%; 3rd ends 95% of the time. Kids go through multiple step-families. Good luck following American culture. Downgrading of family values in entertainment TV & movies have lost audience in the US, and Koreans will too tune out dramas if it continues. And what image are these writers telling the world with young Korean women DRINKING constantly like uneducated classless idiots whenever life throws curve balls? It degrades Korean women, and lowers Korean culture. Read alcoholism is high in Korea, no wonder. Thank these writers and directors selling boos on TV. And where are the alpha males in Korea? Many father characters wear aprons cooking, and busy trying to be nurturing women, and women trying to be the men. Ain’t gonna work, like trying to put square into peg. Men are different, women are different. Respect it. Embrace it. Love it. Writers, don’t tell me about a trashy drunken society that’s Korea. Write drama stories of descent, honest and respectable citizens of Korea; how they live and love and fight wrongs. Tell me the truth, but skip the moral trash.

    tigerb Says:

    @USA: well said! and some u.s. viewers comment that they prefer to watch s.k. dramas than their local soap operas. they’d be in for a surprise sooner or later. what i really can’t understand, but it’s probably a very common practice, is the drinking – like in almost all s.k. dramas i’ve watched. i guess cirrhosis is not prevalent yet.

  19. 19
    USA Says:

    @tigerb – thank you. Americans are turning to Korean dramas because of trash TV, lying media and culturally/spiritually corrupt Hollywood. Soon, Korean writers will turn off Koreans & Americans too with trashy dramas. Do these crazy nutjob writers really think by having women boozing up – the way Korean men used to – will change the very nature of women? Putting men in aprons cooking to make them women? Korean audience isn’t stupid. Been watching 5-7 dramas lately, and have more women drinking – it’s really disgusting. And these are the mothers of this country for the next generation? Scary. And yes, liver cirrhosis is high in Korea. Soon Korea will be known as the Alcoholic Drunken country with crazy neighbor Kim. Unfortunately Californians will be living ‘high’ in drugs. Korean youth doesn’t have the money to do drugs, yet. I’m certain Korean writers will be the first to introduce it as they’re doing a fine job promoting alcohol, and creating the country’s image of drunks cohabiting with no moral compass! Oh I stopped watching all dramas except Golden Pouch (no drinking, no trash) Hope you find good dramas to enjoy.

  20. 20
    Jessy Says:

    Yup…i agree with the new comments…they should stop alcoholic scene…that drinking behavior are too much…
    Btw i love to see love line between ra young n that coach…the director should put an extra scenes for them after this…

  21. 21
    tigerb Says:

    @USA: just read your response. i was enjoying s.k. dramas to an extent but found that some plots are more or less the same. the writers are probably running out of original korean drama ideas that they resort to basing plots from western movies and dramas, and i’ve proven that so far (one was ‘bel ami’). has the s.k. culture really changed, or, is their media, through dramas and movies, influencing it? the world is getting smaller with nothing new to learn! i’ll look for ‘golden pouch’. when i get tired of dramas, i watch documentaries, and scanning synopses of oncoming dramas to decide if i should watch them or not.

    @Jessy: with you, USA, and my comment, and hopefully some others, i wish the writers would tone down the alcohol part in future dramas.

    Gaebong Says:

    @USA: “The morality of Korean society and culture is going bankrupt . . . Good luck following American culture.” Agreed. But I think it isn’t the core American culture so much rather the effect of Marxism foisted on education and the media that’s leading America and South Korea down a path of moral abandon. Just my observation as an outsider.

    I think when young minds are indoctrinated by an ideology hostile to their Judeo-Christian values then the rot sets in and the society is fucked in every way — economically, socially and individual happiness.

    Florensiana Says:

    Jung so min ssi you look good with short hair style

    USA Says:

    @Gaebong – agreed. US has been leading the way to remove God from families, kids, and all level of governments.
    *1963 – the US Supreme Court ruled to end School Prayers in classrooms.
    *1973 – the Supreme Court legalized the killing of unborn allowing the abortion industry to thrive by selling aborted baby parts at price for research.
    *2005 – the Supreme Court ok’d to remove the Ten Commandments from the govt (federal, state, cities) buildings & public areas.

    US education system fell under the Liberal Socialists and Feminizes. More American college kids today are Socialists and Atheists thanks to such teachers & professors, media, Hollywood – that abandon God. Groups that once fought courageously for justice for minorities, are now suing small towns & schools throughout US instead to remove the Christmas Tree and Nativity Scene during the Christmas season. Active Left Socialists and Atheists in the US want to kick God out, and they’re coming just like they brought abortion to S.K. It’s hard to believe America was founded on Judeo-Christian values.

    It’s great to see Lee Joon with a new drama. Add this drama to the watchlist. “Joong Hee is an actor who used to be a member of an idol group” feel like this character is written for Lee Joon, I also really like national mother Kim Hae Sook >.<

    Lclarakl Says:

    USA @ 17 I posed this question on the Soompi thread several years ago and no one has been able to provide me with legitimate response. Name one Korean drama, adult drama–not kids, where one of the primary characters don’t get drunk. No one has been able to provide me with the name of one drama. It is extremely sad that Korean dramas encourage young women getting falling down drunk is something very normal. US television has turned into rated R tv at times and someone mentioned the “lying media” (not as much as the bald face lying coming out of the Whitehouse), is one of the reasons I like watching Korean dramas; but the drunks turn me off.

    Kdramaqueen Says:

    i dont like Joong Hee cos he is so full of himself & kinda of annoying…. same goes for Mi Young… she is over-reacting always! she is always LOUD & ANNOYING… no wonder they are a MATCH.. hahahaha! i hope they can change them into something more lovable.

    the only best part is Hye Young & Jung Hwan… their romance is more interesting..

    I watch with my roommate and we have different couple the most shock is one of my friend said that he love father and mother couple she said that couple is have a pure love

    tigerb Says:

    @Yura 33: if you mean han soo and young shil, i agree with your friend’s comment that they have pure love, considering what they went through. young shil loved him for what he was and is, they don’t have any secrets from each other, and have always supported each other. i think that will be proven in the future when the truth comes out how han soo assumed his dead friend’s name, and that would be a shocker to all members of his family, including the in laws.

    i like this drama i just got disappointed when i watch about min ha who is bright kid i don’t get it why he can’t get to study to the school that he wants coz most students who are intelligent can get scholarships where they can still study whiteout paying anything or just paying a small amount. the writer of this drama sucks. maybe they don’t know about scholarships grant for intelligent students

  37. 37
    tigerb Says:

    @czarinah: i think the writer wants to involve the other members of the cast (to fill sub-plots and lengthen series), maybe he/she wants the grandmother join the tv show and she would win and the money prize can for the grandchild’s tuition fee??
