Synopsis

This drama tells the story of four people who seek for love and happiness. Life is hard, but finding love and happiness can seem nearly impossible. That’s why some, like Kim Sul Ah (Jo Yoon Hee) have decided to focus on a career, rather than waste time and energy on relationships that inevitably end in disaster. A successful career woman, Sul Ah seems to have it all together on the outside, but on the inside, she still longs for the one thing that will make her truly happy.

But Sul Ah isn’t the only one struggling. The eldest son of his family, Moon Tae Rang (Yoon Park), is a young chef struggling to support the people he loves most while attempting to follow his dreams. He sincerely loves his family, but they have a way of making life difficult at times.

Kim Chung Ah (Seol In Ah) knows all about difficult. Having spent the past eight years studying for the civil service exam, she has given up on any hopes of dating and marriage. As much as she would love to get married and have a family someday, the only thing she has time to think about now is working hard so she can pass the upcoming exam.

On the other end of the spectrum, Goo Joon Hwi (Kim Jae Young) has absolutely no interest in marriage, relationships, or other people’s affairs. Completely focused on himself and his work, Joon Hwi could happily spend the rest of his life alone, or so he thought…

Setting out on an unexpected journey towards love, four souls find that love and happiness often show up in life when you least expect them.

  1. 1 : Kdrama Crazy Says:

    It looks like a happy family and romance drama. I will definitely put it in my watchlist 🙂

  2. 2 : diana Says:

    After watching the first 2 eps this description does not reflect that at allll

  3. 3 : queeni jai Says:

    kim jaeyoung seems a very good actor.. go go kjy..

  4. 4 : Jukbang Says:

    This is not happy family.. I repeat this is not happy family.

  5. 5 : USA Says:

    Deceiving with the title & pictures to lure in unsuspecting audience. Once the writer & director make a fool of me, I’m done. Watched first 30 mins of death by suicide, clicked out.

    Jukbang is correct. This is not happy family or life drama, but miserable one. Today, many Korean drama storylines are out to persuade, influence, control minds — Hollywood does the same. A holiday movie set on Thanksgiving seemed like a fun happy crazy family movie 20 years ago. It turned out a daughter was getting a divorce, son showed up with his gay partner—parents just found out, promiscuous teen daughter got pregnant, mom popping psycho drugs. Got up and left the theatre. Forgot to ask for my money back. Totally fooled by Hollywood advertising. Never went to see another family movie by Hollywood. Watch old movies now, the real actors like John Wayne, Clint Eastwood — not comic hero movies by computer that’s so tiring & over-rated.

  6. 6 : Ling Says:

    Eps 3 and 4 get interesting.
    Drama looks promising.

  7. 7 : Pisasu Says:

    Why is the dad so dumb…and the elder daughter so screwed up..Story line is fine but some charecters are not human..,

  8. 8 : mml Says:

    Goo Joon Hwi does not have a friendly character . It is difficult to understand this person . And how can Goo Joon Hwi can start to fall in love with Kim Chung Ah ?? Hard to understand .

  9. 9 : annmasae Says:

    I am enjoying this drama despite the sad suicide of a young man at the beginning. I like the relationship of Chung Ah and Joon Hwi because I think she will make him a happier, better person. I agree that the dad is dumb and the older sister is so money hungry. The aunt who is trying to cover up the accident is also very terrible. I just ignore them and concentrate on what a good person Chung Ah is. I hope she finds happiness and a permanent job. Actress Sul In Ah is doing a terrific job.

  10. 10 : jarlieuy Says:

    already started watching this drama, i was in eps 24 until i realize this drama will air up to march 2020… holy cow. i need to wait 4 months more….btw, im skipping unnecessary scenes with characters like slothful dad etc….
    moreover…..story is good but very bad editing

  11. 11 : Ling Says:

    Yoon Park – most improved acting since My father is strange.

    The way the writers are messing up big time after such a promising start, is putting the drama into a coma.

    Pity. Sul in ah’s talent.

  12. 12 : annmasae Says:

    So glad Chung Ah is doing well as a police officer. I always enjoy her scenes with Joon Hwi but their romance is moving soooo slowly. Hope it speeds up soon.

  13. 13 : Ling Says:

    Goodness! 30 episodes to get back to the plot?! Will it meander again??

  14. 14 : Ling Says:

    The joon hwi romance just makes no sense.

  15. 15 : annmasae Says:

    I totally disagree with Ling @14. I really like the chemistry between Joon Hwi and Chung Ah. They are so cute together. She has made him a more likeable person. I know there will be a problem when she finds out who he is but I have faith that they will work it out somehow. I only watch the drama for this couple. I fast forward through everything else.

  16. 16 : Bao Says:

    @Ling: The romance between Joon Jwi and Chung Ah make perfect sense. They are complete opposites and met each other first in Episode 1. He fell for her for her good nature personality – of always wanting to help those in need. She annoyed him at first because she’s noisy… but who else can bring him out of his shell except for someone exactly like her? I don’t think their relationship can move forward until the secrets get revealed though as everyone is still grieving.

  17. 17 : SJL Says:

    I really enjoy watching this drama. Am so glad that Seol In Ah, Kim Jae Young and Oh Min Suk won KBS awards . They are all doing a really great job. I really enjoy watching the love story between Joon Hwi and Cheong Ah. It has a really interesting storyline. It does seem long when you see that it is 100 episodes. But I look at it as fifty 1 hour episodes. Hope you give the drama a chance. The actors/ actresses do a great job.

  18. 18 : SJL Says:

    It starts off with something very serious happening that affects 2 families. It seems slow in the beginning but every episode gets better and the reason for how “slow” it may seem is because they have to give the background. Some dramas reveal the past in the middle of the story but this one starts right away with sharing what the main issue is. The story line is interesting and although there are some annoying characters, there is a reason for it. One just has to watch from the beginning to really understand the different characters. The Joon Hwi and Cheong Ah love story is really beautiful. They have a lot of obstacles to overcome but to see how Joon Hwi has changed because of Cheong ah is really beautiful to see.

  19. 19 : annmasae Says:

    @SJL very nice summary of the drama. I am really enjoying it too. Glad the ratings keep going up. Not sure how it happens but I hope Joon Hwi and Cheong Ah end up together. They made such a great couple.
