    Rating for episode 39 went down much maybe because sang min and yeon tae had limited exposure due to jin joo and taemin given same exposure unlike before…. I did not watch episode 39 also because i do not like to see jin joo and tae min having same exposure as sang min and yeon tae…

    Dramaluvr Says:

    I watched both episodes even though I couldn’t understand most of it. Still I was so sad for Sang Min. I like him because his character has different sides to him. He can be funny, arrogant and tender, clumsy and very loving towards Yeon Tae. He’s willing to fight for his love yet she gives up easily she has a lot to learn. In the end Sang Min’s mother will see Tae Min’s choice of Jin Joo is not so great. Although, she has improved from the beginning but I’m not a fan of hers. I feel sorry for Sang Tae’s mother in law having list her daughter and missing the kids but she is the most annoying person. They think they can solve everything with money but they’re only causing more problem for the new family. Aigoo

    stil 14 episode left…aiiiguuuu I’m stil fan of this long drama, Daebak!! writer nim make Kim sang min and Youn Tae a married couple , plz don’t waste the episode 4 this couple with sad story…the reason youn tae to break up with sang min is just ‘ so so’…she already left his filling toward taemin n all memory abt his fisrt ♥ already remove by sangmin ♥ anyway…so why u made youn tae reaction in ‘end line’!! just bring their married life next plzzzz….can’t stand it watch sang min suffer. and one ‘?’ ..4 what reason sang min mother soo adore n believe 4 what her second adult do !!…in my opinion frm the scene..sang min soo responsible loving and carring his brother with his own by a prof golf and the apartemen is belong to sang min too…so what the plus from tae min ?!! compare to his hyung sang min…why his mom could be like that toward sang min ?? …can’t 4 saturday night!!

    Dramaluvr Says:

    My feeling about Yun Tae is that she is overreacting. She’s assuming Sang Min and his brother were laughing about her. But if that were true would Sang Min have proposed? She’s not thinking it through she’s only acting out of emotion and embarrassment. She’s actually an immature girl who had an illusion of Tae Min. He’s not the perfect guy she thinks him to be. He picked Jin Joo as a girlfriend and was quick to propose too just because his mother didn’t like in-law marriages. So in my eyes he’s equal to Sang Min. About the grandmother, I feel she’s a stalker. Always with the sunglasses creeping and spying on people. Very immature for an old lady. Plus everything is about money. What she can give her grandchildren even if it cáuses problems with the other children. I only feel sad she lost her daughter. But that doesn’t give her the right to rule her son in laws household

    How com no eng sub yet for episode 40? I think this is the first time it took this long for the eng sub….

  6. 56
    Dramaluvr Says:

    I still think Yun Tae is being overly sensitive. It’s not like she had some sort if relationship with Tae Min. It was all in her mind with her crush for him. If she really cared for Sang Min she gives up so quickly? She right about one thing she’s not ready for marriage. Too immature and concerned about her own feelings rather than working things out. Look at all the problems Mi Jung is facing. Jin Joo made me angry when she didn’t like her dad apologizing to the family. It’s about time she gets her own problems with her in-laws. Things have been too easy for her. Brat.

    Dramaluvr Says:

    I wish this drama was complete. It’s very interesting and hard to wait for the next episodes. YT is still acting like a hurt puppy. She needs to grow up.. Sang Min needs to give her some space for her to see what she’s missing out on. As predicted the Sang Tae children are being selfish and sneaky since the grandparents are teaching them to be sneaky behind the parents back. Congratulations to them for complicating the adjustments these kids need to form a new family unit. Also, in Chul the other children’s father trying to get them to be sneaky with the phone so he can try to wreck this family. What selfish adults.

    Dramaluvr @ 54, 56 and 57, I agree 100% will all your posts. You’ve stated everything that I’ve stated on another thread about these character.

  9. 59
    Dramaluvr Says:

    @Iclarakl. Thanks, I was feeling kind of lonely…ha ha. I do feel for the grandmother that lost her daughter but that doesn’t excuse her immature behavior of using her grief to manipulate the family. Hope the writer fixes her up to be a proper supportive grandmother. Also, it could affect Jin Joos’s future children seeing Bin & Soo being her favorites because of the aunt’s death. Not to mention the jealousy created with Mi
    Jung’s children.

    the rate drop!! for my self watch this week eps too lazy much scene i have to skip…bcouse to much scene are wasted with min jung n sang tae problematic, as viewer I think min jung sangtae couple climax problem are done , so no need to expose another new problem. n jin joo scene is booring, sorry my eyes blink2 only wait for sang min yountae moment…but too bad just a little scene. they are only need they own drama ..want see them married life here, but like ppl said ..they are not the lead cast. arrggg

    Dramaluvr Says:

    I agree the Jin Joo storyline is not so interesting to me. She gets mist things going her way. Now another job being a mystery shopper falls on her lap. I wish I got jobs that easy. I think they’re going to deal with the little girls next. Now that the boys are getting along. Plus I think Sang Min’s mother wants Yun Tae for Tae Min. Now that she likes her since she mistook her fir a younger woman, that’s a compliment. I’m not too interested in the InChul not wanting more children. His wife should have talked with him about children BEFORE she married him, what a dummy.

    Maja Says:

    All strories involving jinjoo are not interesting at all… All her scenes make me want to stop watching this drama… But for sang min and yon tae i patiently watch just getting tiredof fast forwarding and skipping jinjoos scenes… I am really wondering why she is given such much exposure? Is she popular in south korea? Anyone?

  13. 63
    Dramaluvr Says:

    @Maja. I would like to know the answer to your question. At least they added 4 more episodes to this drama. I hope it stays that way. I want to see Yun Tae and Sang min as a married couple. I hope they won’t end it at the wedding.

  14. 64
    Dramaluvr Says:

    My rant now is on Bin and her biological grandmother. That Bin character is a brat. The grandmother messed her up while raising her. She only thinks of herself and was mean to the youngest. No wonder Jin Joo had problems. She was raised wrong to only value things and money. Now she’s learning better. Bin’s teacher needs more training. To imply child abuse is a leap. Just because a child is unhappy when they don’t get their way. Bin’s grandmother is getting on my nerves. She’s child .#6 in this drama.

  15. 65
    msmy Says:

    Yes, have to agree about Bin and her grandmother. I don’t feel that Bin’s Dad has really addressed the situation, just put a band-aid on for now. But Grandma has never come to grips with losing her daughter, so pours affection and gifts on Bin. The art teacher wasn’t suggesting abuse, just trying to interpret the feelings of Bin being isolated in the new family. But of course she would! She is no longer the only one that needs attention, and she’s not dealing with it very well when there are more siblings and sharing that has to happen. That’s not in little Bin’s playbook. And enabling Grandma to single out Bin is not helping the new family tie together. Grandma needs some serious counseling. And Bin needs a lot more structure and exposure to what it means to be part of a big family.

  16. 66
    Dramaluvr Says:

    The issue with Bin s being glossed over. The dad told Bin he was wrong and will be a better dad. He doesn’t really tell her being a family is sharing time and attention and she did not behave well in the store. Then they gift her with all the dresses while the other child just looks on. Good thing she’s more mature despite being in the same age group The teacher did say “lately child abuse problems from 2nd marriages are serious” to Yun Tae So it is implied that it was a possibility in this family. That’s why she was talking with her about it in the first place. But it is a 54 episode drama so it would take more time to address these issues.

    Maja Says:

    Jin joo said her parents don’t like her even her supposed to be mother in law does not like her too ….. Why is it that quite a number of people do not like her and that includes me hahahaha…. Please writers please give jinjoo and tae min same exposure as soon young and ho tae … Very little time for them since they are not very interesting …. Especially jin joo …

    What a nice drama.. full of humor and wit. Very good script, amazing actors and very good performance all around from everybody including “Brain” , lol.
    I will miss these characters for sure when the drama ends.

    Dramaluvr Says:

    I feel sorry for Woo Ri. But wait till she finds out who daddy married and that there may be a new baby in the works eventually. I do feel badly she has a lousy father who doesn’t really do the hard part in parenting his children. this drama shows true to life situations but in a comedy setting. I wonder how much more drama there could have been if Mi Jung parents were alive.
    Ho Tae has a lot of nerve being against sang min. He doesn’t look at his Own example, then he puts down marriage in front of his wife. I still haven’t changed my mind about him. What a dumb man.

    Damo Says:

    Starting to watch n’ soon give-up. Not my culture to understand this type of drama. As a parent, I will be happier if my son still appreciated by his in-law parents after his wife died. Their son is not young, already over 40’s still under control by them, to remarried in the first 1~4 episodes. Aaargh! Stop it, man! Old-fashioned Korean.

  21. 71
    Hani Says:

    I really like the drama, even if some scenes are exaggerated, but then it’s quite relatable. I try to understand the drama and it’s characters.

    Minjeong is one of my favorite character. She’s really hard working, both with her work and how she manages at home. I feel like she strives really hard to make Sangtae’s kids like her. Even so, she should make time with her own kids (after she got married). I understand that its struggling to keep up with 5 children. Not easy. But her efforts are admirable. Sangtae, for me, he’s very determined to keep things equal from different sides of his family. But, I feel like he should express more. He’s the type to follow the rules, which at times is very frustrating. I feel that the actor should show more facial expressions. He should learn to have a more stricter side when it comes to his children. At least he’s handsome ^^ (haha).

    As for Yeontae and Sangmin, they are my favorite couple! Even though Yeontae is an, at times, frustrating, we have to understand that she lacks the knowledge and experience of dating. She doesn’t know how to do it. Same as anybody who is still a novice at dating. We can’t judge her, she, like her brother, is the type to follow the rules. That’s why Sangmin is suitable for her. He, at first was very arrogant, but thanks to Yeontae, he learn to appreciate the little aspects of life. He humbled down. Its nice to see his struggles to woo Yeontae despite her frequent rejections at him from the beginning. Both of their characters learnt some valuable along their relationship. (Wish that I have someone like him ><).

    Another couple I've come to adore is Taemin and Jinjoo. Taemin is a dream boat. He is the epitome of the son in law every mother wishes her daughter to marry. He is caring and understanding. Still, I wish a that he had a bit a spunk. As for Jinjoo, she was spoiled at the beginning. Thanks to Taemin she humbled and learned that nothing is easy in this world. It was heart breaking to see the scene where she was compared to Yeontae by Sangmin and Taemin's mother. I really hoped for a happy ending for the both of them.

    The kids. Wuyeong is very admirable; the way he tries to understand the situation and handles it very strongly. Su was spoiled, but he at least he learned to tone down. Wuri, I found her to have a little understanding. She is jealous of Bin. She thinks that her mother cares more about Bin than her. If she just tolerates, she would probably be ok. Bin is more spoiled than her brother. The fact that she thinks highly of herself is infuriating. I understand that she's young. I'd give her time to adjust. Wuju is very cute and innocent ^^. Love her (haha)

    The parents. Jinjoo's parents are very annoying. They're so stereotypical annoying. They would just assume that money fixes everything. Then again, Mr and Mrs. Jang is understandable. They care for their grandchildren. But they tend to overreact. Personally, they should not be involve in their ex son in law's new life. They're only link to their grandchildren. I felt that they've learned their lesson. But, they should pay more attention to their daughter, Jinjoo a bit more. The Lee's we're nice people. Mr.Lee was my favorite Lee. He was so nice and tries to see the best in people. Mr and Mrs Kim was ok. Mrs. Kim was infuriating since she pried too much in Taemin's life. She made Jinjoo cried. She should learn to keep her opinions to herself sometimes. And learn to accept people as they are. Grandmother An. (?) she very funny. She's so admirable, her willingness to work despite her age was jjang!

    Others:
    Hotae & Sooyoung: they're a cute couple. its fun to see moments in their marriage life. I can't wait to see their kid!
    Incheol & the wife (can't remember the name): Sometimes very annoying. Incheol is a terrible father. I pray for their future child. I pity the wife at some point. I've never labeled her as a husband stealer. They both suit each other perfectly. They, thankfully, matured.

    Honestly, I never seen actors and actress except the main actor’s ex-in law in this drama. when was so boring to watch k-drama after finished DOTS, then I found this and I really like it, it is really good for family, kids and adults in different family are know how to be understandable each others. Good Job!

    I’ve stopped watchimg this drama at episode 48 because i am tired of fast forwarding this to skip scenes of jinjoo and tae min because lately a lot of exposure for them so i stopped already… Their ranking was always at #1 with only the lead couple and of course sang min and yoon tae so why still use jinjoo and tae min story? I really dont like them… Towards the end, it seems that they are gaining more exposure. … So sad …. I hate the writers of this drama… Good its about to end so i will not see this jinjoo and tae min anymore hahaha i jost hope yoon tae and sangmin will have a part 2 all by themselves …..

    lclarakl Says:

    I have to say that this was a drama that I anticipated each week. Mi Jung was my absolute favorite female character of all times, along with her grandmother. They were women who didn’t take crap off of others. Absolutely loved this drama until Mi Jung and Sang Tae got married. Then for me, the drama lost what had made it so special:

    1) First, they should have never extended this drama, because now I feel it really needs an extension to resolve effectively some of the new issues that were created towards the end and still hasn’t resolved some of the old issues around In Chul’s marriage to So Young and the kids relationship.

    2) If the writer was going introduce this type of storyline towards the end, then the writer should have gotten them married sooner so she could have properly developed the family relationship and kept some of the over the top in-laws reactions at bay; instead too much time was lost on the mother-in-law who I think needs counselling to deal with her daughter’s death.

    3) Mi Jung – I’m so disappointed in her. Instead of deciding to be fair in how they treat the children, she decided that she would show favoritism to Soo and Bin in oder to get them to like her. This is flawed in my mind, because she’s basically catering to whatever they want and really not being a parent to them. She’s also creating a distinction between her kids and Sang Tae’s children—-this type of behaviors creates resentment among children…I don’t care how the writer tries to depict it otherwise:

    a) She lets them decide if they want to help clean the house or not while telling her kids to clean. Then she praises Soo for helping out—what about her own freaking kids?

    b) Then her daughter doesn’t have many clothes at all, when they all go shopping at a discount place, Woo Ri asks if she can buy another dress, Mi Jung tells her no, but Bin refuses to shop there (the little snob) so Mi Jung takes her to an expensive shop. Bin throws a fit when she can’t have all the dresses she wants. Later, using her birthday as an excuse, Mi Jung goes back and buys the expensive $640 dress for Bin. Writer are you kidding me???!!! She wouldn’t buy Woo Ri another dress that probably cost no more than $25, if that, but she buys this as a birthday gift for Bin after she showed out at the mall? If Mi Jung had treated Bin as her child, she would have scold her for that behavior. Bin is spoiled rotten and is in need for a firm hand.

    c) Mi Jung won’t help Woo Ri fix her hair or get ready for school, but instead she spends that quality time fixing the ungrateful Bin’s hair.

    d) Didn’t care for Sang Tae buying a gift for Bin and giving it to her in front of Woo Ri, but later gives Woo Ri a gift too but tells her it’s a secret–don’t want Bin to know. Spare me!!! Why are they determined to raise Woo Ri in an environment where she is supposed to be less than Bin and they constantly reenforcing in her mind that Bin is better/more special than her.

    e) Did the writer really have to give Bin the acting role just so she could get Bin to like Mi Jung as a ‘mother’? Of course, this is Bin’s world. The family and everything in this drama seems to resolves around her. It truly irritated me in episode 52 (though it was one of the better episodes since their marriage because of her kids interacting with in-law-grandpa), when she saw Woo Ri crying her eyes out, she left it to in-law-grandpa and later Sang Tae to tell her somewhat of what happened. She’s happily eating ice cream when her daughter in a short period of time is having to deal with finding out her parents are divorced, missing her father, feelings of unfair treatment, and not feeling as if she’s been betrayed—doesn’t faze Mi Jung as she eats ice cream. However, Bin comes in the kitchen looking sad, then immediately Mi Jung is worried as to why she looks sad–no crying her eyes out like Woo Ri, she just looks sad, and Mi Jung shows more concern for her than her own child. That is a huge disappointment.

    f) When Soo and Woo Young got into a fight at school. Yes, I understand that Mi Jung felt Woo Young needed punishment with a rod, but at the same time, not for the reason she wanted to punish him. She wasn’t going to punish Soo of course, just Woo Young. I would have punished both Soo and Woo Young, but instead, she wanted to punish Woo Young because of what he said about the boy who started the fight not having a father. Sorry, the kids can’t get suspended from school for name calling, but they can for fighting. They could accidentally kill a person by fighting. If anything, I could see her punishing both boys for that, not because of words being spoken; that’s a good talking to. Then there is the mother who wanted an investigation done. They all go to her place of work to convince her not to open a case……..really writer? This woman’s child was the bully and everyone knows it. If anything, she should be asking them to forgive her son. But I get the writer wants to send a cultural message about the discrimination single mothers face in South Korea.

    What happened to the Mi Jung who for 3 years wouldn’t tell her children that she and their father were divorced because she was worried how it would impact them? Who is this newly married woman who is treating them like she could care less about their emotional needs. Why isn’t she trying to help Woo Young deal with his resentment towards his father. That’s a lot of negative emotions for someone so young to carry. However, she doesn’t seem to care.

    I’m not expecting perfection from Mi Jung, I’m expecting her to look like she at least cares…which she doesn’t.

    This writer introduced a topic of blended families and didn’t do a good job in my opinion in developing the story. Soo had a personality change overnight. Bin will probably do the same thing. Sadly, all I saw was Mi Jung bonding with Bin while leaving her own daughter in the cold.

    I could go on and on about the things I felt Mi Jung and Sang Tae are doing to create a division in the family. The writer will give it a happy ending, but this family will be anything but happy–especially Mi Jung’s children who I feel is being neglected by their own mother.

    4) Sang Min and Yeon Tae are my favorite couple. I could have done with Yeon Tae developing a little more. If I had to listen to her convert to that baby talk one more time I felt like I would scream. She’s a grown woman of 28 years old and acting like a shy middle school girl—she never developed. I hate to see her on her wedding night. Yes, I understand that she’s never had a boyfriend before, but she’s a teacher for goodness sake and has to meet parents all the time. At times she’s depicted so shy that it’s ridiculous–she’s wasn’t that bad in the beginning of the drama. I also felt a lot of time was wasted on her being made at Sang Min.

    Besides the baby talk, the other thing that got on my nerves was her constant worrying about Jin Joo and Tae Min–a couple I could have cared less about. The last 6 episodes seem to be about them. I could care less if they never marry. To be honest, i would not want Jin Joo’s parents as my in-laws…they know no boundaries of respectability. Worse part is Yeon Tae said at least 4 or 5 times in episode 52 how worried she was about Tae Min. My goodness Yeon Tae, then why don’t you marry him? You can’t focus on planning your own marriage with Sang Min because you have Tae Min on the brain. Sang Min are you sure you want to marry this woman? I’m not sure I would.

    5) In Chul and So Young – since it’s episode 52, I guess the writer is not going to let the children find out that their father married their mother’s friend. I guess they may get divorced without the kids finding out? This was being built to be a pivotal point in the drama and it came to nothing.

    I find it strange that So Young didn’t confront InChul the night after his drunken proclamation that he wished he had never met her, that he wish he could go back to when he was married to Mi Jung. That didn’t faze her. However, now that she knows he can’t have children, she’s feeling resentment towards him. How about feeling it towards yourself So Young, you should have never went with your friend’s husband. You’re getting what you deserve. More than that, what man in conservative South Korea would want to marry a woman like So Young if she divorces In Chul?

    6) Sang Tae – I was extremely disappointed that this man never got a backbone where his in-laws were concerned. He let them continue to do what they wanted. I resented the way he treated his mother compared to how he treated his mother in law. He treated his deceased wife’s parents more precious than his own family. I do think he tries to spend more time with the kids–at least better than Mi Jung.

    The writer wasted time on a bunch of other unimportant happenings – namely Jin Joo and Tae Min and his silly, petty mother. I didn’t like Sang Min’s mother from the beginning because of her over the top favoritism. You haven’t seen both of your sons in a long time and you walk past your oldest son and hugs the younger one?

    I truly talked this drama up because I loved it so much and it’s still not overly bad. It’s just that I’m disappointed to see a drama that was so well written at first, turn into a normal silly, illogical, frustrating drama. For me, this drama went down hill after the marriage.

    So far, I’ve enjoyed this drama.

    The only thing is the clips for the previews of the next week. They would imply something and then in the next weeks episode, I would see a different encounter. Not as bad as the clip showed. Now at the ending of episode 52 it looks like Mi Jung has a serous illness and Sang Tae is crying. When we know it’s probably that she’s pregnant. It’s called click-bait. Trying to imply this on a happy family drama? For shame.
    That’s a no no writers!

    A very good drama that got lost 80 percent of the way through when they added the conflicts between Jin Soo and Tae Min’s two faced hater mother. The ending is rushed and includes new conflicts in the last two episode. It was ridiculous to add 4 episodes with new issues when they should have cleanly closed out the side stories and leave viewers with a good feeling. I wished I had stopped watching earlier. Such a waste.
