  18. 18 : 0708julia_jj Says:

    Wow, it got low rating in premiere ep. The rating is answer that korean remake mita housekeeper will never better than the original one

  19. 19 : something Says:

    the premiere rating is 8.2% is not low…still first episode still too early too judge

    i watch it without sub so far is enjoyable to watch…

    i think there are some wrongs in the synopsis here

  20. 20 : emmanuel Says:

    I love this drama.

  21. 21 : Angelia's Says:

    Is there any romance i hope there is. N the ratings are not good. I think I like this drama. Those kids are cute

  22. 22 : mita Says:

    A mysterious lady and i am thrilled about the two episodes, choi ji woo portray the charater so convincingly. a good drama to watch as it unfold
    the story in the coming episodes. the youngest daughter had acted her part so well.

  23. 23 : Mike Says:

    This drama seems to be very interesting looking forward to watch this drama in English Sub

  24. 24 : lally Says:

    excited to see the new drama of choijiwoo. it is a good drama and different from the pevious story where she acteda, good job cjw.

  25. 25 : usa-mary Says:

    This drama is really very good! I’m almost done watching episode 1. The young actress, who’s playing the oldest daughter was also in 2 phenomenal dramas earlier this year, I Miss You @Missing You and I Hear Your Voice! She’s a wonderful actress.

    Even though, its fiction, an adult woman getting slapped by a teenager or by anyone for that matter of fact is hard to watch. I get its a kdrama with the infamous slap, but still….

  26. 26 : usa-mary Says:

    Bok Nyeo reminds me a cold, robotic, nonsensical Korean version of Mary Poppins. She has everything thing in her ‘have bag, will travel’ satchel!

    She carries out orders and recites verbatim what was said in her presence. Who needs a recorder when she’s around. LOL The editing, you’ll have to do yourself.

  27. 27 : gigi Says:

    interesting drama, looking forward for next spisode.

  28. 28 : Micc Says:

    Is it going to be the same ending as the Japanese version? I don’t like that ending, hope they change it here.

  29. 29 : Fullheart Says:

    Not a fan of the actress who plays the eldest daughter. Interesting drama though.

  30. 30 : josie Says:

    an interesting plot with good casts acting perfectly for each role. choi ji woo did her part well, so scary of her doing that robotic walk
    with so much heartache on her face.

  31. 31 : teresa Says:

    this is really good! bahaha, if you’re looking for serious comedy then this is for you. I like the casts so far, and the acting is well done!

  32. 32 : Sodasister Says:

    Park JiBin as Eun Hankyul’s boyfriend??
    Will this drama’s ending same with the japanese version??
    Looking foward for it 😀

  33. 33 : teresa Says:

    Oh but seriously, the eldest daughter will piss you off. She’s really immature, she uses her self pity to justify her actions as good and correct. lol. so far, she’s being annoying.

  34. 34 : Jae Says:

    PBN rocks. XD

  35. 35 : fayey Says:

    choi ji woo a mysterious,heartless housekeeper. shes doing great in the two episodes and i cant resist to follow these drama because of the good story and her new role since i started watching her from winter sonata to present. fighting choi ji woo !

  36. 36 : Adhe Talla Says:

    Best of luck, choi ji woo eonni

  37. 37 : mml Says:

    I have finished watching episode 1 and episode 2, to me is a mystery housekeeper. I think, the housekeeper originally does not work as housekeeper, maybe, the housekeeper had gone through a very painful experienced in her romance, is a mystery to me at this moment.

    I think, in time to come, the housekeeper can manage the children, very well.
    Maybe, oneday the children will find that this housekeeper is very suitable to be their stepmother.
    I hope, the housekeeper can bring hope and love to the children then this drama can be more interesting as the housekeeper looks a cold blooded person , never smile and looks sad, maybe once upon a time , she has her own child and then her child became dead thats why she looks so sad.

    I will continue to watch this drama to find out the mystery that causes her not to smile .

  38. 38 : della Says:

    I really think its a great kdrama, since its trying a different story and I think its quite interesting to see another genre of kdrama rather than just romance, prince, chaebol heirs,hehehe

  39. 39 : mml Says:

    I have finished watching episode 3, looks like the housekeeper always looks very sad, now i am very curious about the housekeeper. The housekeeper likes to buy 3 hamburgers meals and she never even eat it.
    Is it the housekeeper lost her 2 kids? 3 persons equal to three hamburgers meals, why she never eat the meals and bought it to waste ?

    I am very impressed by the housekeeper who can manage all things so calm and so well at all situations.

    Can this be a romance drama too ?
    If, the housekeeper can become their stepmother then what about the woman who had an affair with the guy that causes his wife to commit suicide ?
    And i also think that the children cannot accept the woman to be their stepmother. But instead. maybe they will love and prefer to accept the housekeeper.

    I hope the housekeeper can bring in some romance to this drama too . And i hope that she will be the stepmother if the writer can arrange it in this way, that will be a warm heartloving stepmother drama.

    Okay, i will continue to watch episode 4 to find out more about it.

  40. 40 : Sarah Says:

    I really looking forward for CJW’s acting in this drama .Btw, ive already had great time watching the Japanese version where theactings are remarkably excellent. i’m hoping to see a diffrent, if not a littele different storyline for the korean version as the japanese version was so tragic and kind of sad. I belived CJW had the feel of becoming the mysterious Mita, hope to see the drama soon!

  41. 41 : Phan" Says:

    When I read the short synopsis for the Japanese version, It looks like it’s a not too-sad ending. The title makes me more suspicious for watching the drama. Actually, I Hope There are some twist in the story. Hope for more better rating.

  42. 42 : Nudge Says:

    Ah this drama unwittingly perhaps, highlights a social disease. When a parent is incapacitated due to not being able to process whether he loves his children or not, something is seriously wrong with that society or else he is mentally deficient.

    I will take the former. The hows and wherefors is for another discussion, suffice it to say that what has befallen this family appears to me symptomatic of what happens to those who live by the rule of “I, me and mine”.

    The children’s readiness to abandon social protocol and structure, both extremely important values in South Korean culture, might suggest S.K is further on in her adoption of progressive-left ideology. An ideology which seeks to destroy traditional values.

    I’m left to wonder if the writer is aware of the potential social implications or perhaps he/she is merely sheep. I realise the original work is of Japanese origin.

  43. 43 : Nudge Says:

    That said. I’m enjoying this drama. 🙂

  44. 44 : Fullheart Says:


  45. 45 : John k Says:

    Dumbass drama. I hate the first son. This drama gets worst every week.

  46. 46 : Nudge Says:

    Never mind the children’s behaviour. How about a father leaving his children home while he stays in a hotel. These children aren’t old enough to defend themselves. How he can sleep while they’re in the care of someone he barely knows, and on their own at night. So out there in the Twilight Zone the situation turns my stomach.

    Am I alone about this?

  47. 47 : Vania Says:

    Why this drama has a low ratting?
    I think its good drama….

  48. 48 : Dramaluvr Says:

    Interesting drama. However the subject matter is pretty rough for children
    I hope parents use discretion in their homes when viewing this drama
    I suspect the housekeeper is devoid of feeling because the same thing happened to her and she is dealing with shock, the reason for the robotic behavior and the man looking for her. That’s my guess

    The hamburgers were simply for the children. She knew they were following her. The flyers at the dad’s job was a good payback Although the children would also pay for Loss of work if it happens. I’ve only seen 2 eps

    Maybe things will work out for these kids once she gets out of her funk
    They’re doing a fine acting job especially when the viewers hate the characters. At least they’re keeping our interest

  49. 49 : Adhe Talla Says:

    What the hack with the rating?
    It’s so low. No matter what I love this drama a lot. CJW eonni’s acting is superb. She’s so amazing as a housekeeper who keep n treat 4 children. 4 thumbs! Best of luck eonni.

  50. 50 : Fullheart Says:

    The eldest daughter is beyond annoying. Have no sympathy for her at all.

  51. 51 : Dramaluvr Says:

    Ok so I got the burger thing wrong. At a later ep seems the housekeeper
    Had a son who died I think. Her shock is in dealing with that. Maybe it drained her of emotion & that’s why she does weird things Yikes!

  52. 52 : Sandy Says:

    The problem I have with this drama (the same issue I had with the Japanese version) is I absolutely detest the father. I can understand the kids acting out, they lost their mother who appeared to be the rock of the family. Then they have this sorry man for a father who throws his job away for this woman–no care or thought about the kids. He and his girlfriend did this to his family. All because he’s infatuated with this woman. I don’t think I can watch anymore.

  53. 53 : july Says:

    After suffering low rating because Good Doctor aired, finally Suspicious housekeeper has double rating. Is this drama good? Because I heard mita housekeeper is popular in japan.I don’t have drama to watch after Good Doctor end and I suffer Good Doctor withdrawal lol

  54. 54 : tintinRELOS Says:

    What’s this? Nanny McPhee?

  55. 55 : Dramaluvr Says:

    I agree the father is a pathetic man. I feel like slapping him. Chasing after the idiot. But the mother should have thought
    Of her four children before abandoning them in such a horrible way. In her own way she was
    Pathetic too No man is worth taking your life
    The housekeeper has her problems but at least she shes there for them but sometimes I wonder

    Interesting drama

  56. 56 : mml Says:

    I like to watch episode 8, especially, the way that the housekeeper told the bitch lady that she is willing to replace her.
    The strange thing that there is a man who always follow and keep an eye on the housekeeper.
    This man can forsee that the housekeeper will become and will join in as part of the family members thus he is trying to prevent the housekeeper from things that happen in future.
    Actually, i hope that the housekeeper will become the stepmother of the 4 kids.
    The housekeeper had suffered some hardships in life.
    I hope that the housekeeper will eventually regain all her happiness and have a happy life together with the 4 kids and the pathetic man who lost his wife.

    Am very eager to look forward to watch episode 9 .

  57. 57 : Dramaluvr Says:

    It will soon be revealed but my guess is that the man following her is reporting to a man or woman in a wheelchair. It could be a evil/jealous ex husband or even a parent of her spouse trying to get even for some past event. They have so far shown a clip of a woman yelling at her with hatred maybe they blame her for an accidental death of her child. Could be they were abusive people in her past she got away from

  58. 58 : della Says:

    Choi Ji woo really nailed her character as Bok Nyeo, I think she always had the sad face on her face and eyes, even though its also feel cold, love her acting here.hope the rating will be better though.

  59. 59 : usa-mary Says:

    Though the acting may be good in this drama, I have to stop watching it. Neither will I bash it just because, I’m fed up with seeing another hormonally weak, skirt chasing man who’s willing to ruin himself and his family over some woman’s cha cha.

    So for those who are willing to continue to watch it and are enjoying it. Fighting!

  60. 60 : LeeMaeDae Says:

    try watch Kaseifu no Mita..the story may be same as this…Love KDrama…(It’s an order!)

  61. 61 : sousou Says:

    Big surprise !
    I really enjoy this show …as many of you I hope that this korean version will have a different end from the japanese version.

  62. 62 : Dramaluvr Says:

    I want the housekeeper to wind up taking care of the kids without the dad. She looks like she wants to bash his face in. Lol In any case, I hope nothing bad happens to her at the end

  63. 63 : Francisco Lawson Says:

    The writing by Baek Woon Chul Is weak and predictable. There is nothing much to keep us guessing once we kind of find out who she is.

  64. 64 : Chai Says:

    It’s interesting now

  65. 65 : Fullheart Says:

    Wheelchair person, ex mother in law, lady that screamed at her to never smile.

  66. 66 : mml Says:

    I have finished watching episode 9 and will definitely continue to support and like to watch this drama.
    I will not give up in watching this drama, the reason is, the 4 kids have treated the housekeeper and hoping that the housekeeper can be their stepmother.

    In episode 9, we can clearly understand that the housekeeper had received severely hurt in the past and very impressed by the 4 kids that at such a young age they have such great ability to understand the hurt and frustrations that the housekeeper had suffered in the past. The kids did not blame the housekeeper but instead they have given the housekeeper great comfort.

    I like this drama very very much as most of the Korea dramas they have wicked women and the revenge plot all about trying to destroy another woman in order to marry to the rich guy.
    But, this drama is different, it talks about how kids wanted a stepmother with kind loving intention.
    The father of the 4 kids, he looks presentable and if he can blossom his romance with the housekeeper , well , is also a good ideal, so long as can bring happiness to the 4 kids and form a complete happy family.

    I hope that the 4 kids can reconcile the housekeeper to believe that there is hope in life. To restart her romance and find back her happiness instead of keep on living in the past.

    In our life, living in the past cannot move things and cannot achieve happiness, as the past may be very hurting and unhealthy. It is only getting better and better when a person can treasure what is at present and get a good opportunity to build a happy and fruitful foundation for the future.

    I am looking forward to watch episode 10 and to find out what causes the housekeeper to hate her past sufferings ?
    How can the kids with their father help the housekeeper to believe that she has the right to find back her happiness and trust her that she can be their stepmother ?

    The mystery to me is that the housekeeper refuse to smile and trust that ther is love in her life makes me very interested to watch this drama and to find out that how talented the 4 kids are to reconcile her hurt and give her hope leading me to believe that this is another interesting korea drama.

    Okay, i will continue to watch episode 10 and continue to make feedback.

  67. 67 : InHae Says:

    now it’s getting more interesting<3!!

  68. 68 : Dramaluvr Says:

    Aww. Episode 10 made me cry especially the little girl. What an endearing actress. Now I fear for this family because of the evil that lurks behind the housekeeper. I hope this gets fixed somehow

    If I get past episode 3, I stick with the drama. The kids had my interest

  69. 69 : ogrenji Says:

    at first i really hate the father,but as he’s now on the right track,i wish the housekeeper would end up with him,so the kids wouldn’t be sad anymore,ep 10 where hye gyeol crying is just heartbreaking and my face all wet 🙂 this drama going on to be more exciting as the mystery starts to unfold,no wonder the rating went up 🙂

  70. 70 : fayey Says:

    the maid has so much pain in her heart that is the reason she lives her life as if she is like a robot. she does’nt want to feel again the pain of losing someone so dearly to her. want to see her happy again with the most beautiful smile on her face when she was a child as what the happy agency director said to the father in law . i can say that the drama is totally a good drama different from what i usually see and with good casts especially cjw. am crying when the little girl cried and calling the maid omma.

  71. 71 : mml Says:

    Episode 10 , i have found out that not only the 4 kids love the housekeeper including the father of the kids also have fallen in love with her. This is not compassion about what she had suffered is regards to the housekeeper had shared a lot wonderful memories with the kids and during the stay of her employment period. And thus resulted the kids together with their father depended on the housekeeper very much not just housework but depended her as their mother and also a chance to find a stepmother.

    Episode 10, viewers can see that Eun Sang Chul started to miss the housekeeper after she quit her job. In this area, viewers like me fully understand that Eun Sang Chul has intention to give himself a chance to find a stepmother for his children and he also wanted the housekeeper to free herself and not to trap at her past sufferings.

    Is very sad to see that Yoon Song Hwa blamed Eun Sang Chul that their relationships became worst was mainly due to the existence of the housekeeper.

    Is a mystery to me that how can Eun Sang Chul can finally has the ability to convince the housekeeper and to win her heart and make her believe that there is true sincere love in this world makes viewers like me really like this drama more and more.

    I believe that episode 11 will be even more interesting to watch and am looking forward to continue to watch more and more interesting episodes.

  72. 72 : Adhe Talla Says:

    This drama is a worth watching, indeed. As expected from Choi Ji Woo Eonni, the hallyu queen.
    I do love her acting. Superb!

  73. 73 : fiana Says:

    there’s no seo ji hoon (the stalker man who always stalking bok nyeo) on the cast….

  74. 74 : Dede Says:

    @73. Hancinema always gives a great cast review. He is on that one if you want to look up info on him.

  75. 75 : Gaby81 Says:

    My Thoughts On Episodes 1-8 Since Those Are The Ones I’m Up To Date With At The Moment. First Off I Think It Was Very Cowardly and Selfish Of Their Mother To Go Kill Herself Because He Was Cheating On Her. I Mean I Don’t Codone Cheating And All, But It’s Not. The End Of The World There’s Plenty of Gish Out There To Be Caught You Know What I Mean. No Guy Is Worth Killing Yourself! She Had Four Children To Look After, They Can’t Fend For Themselves Yet or Old Enough To Support Themselves. The Oldest Is Only A Young Teenager That Has To Take Care of Her Other Three Sibblings. She Has To Cook, Clean And Fewd Them To Boot! Not To Mention To Make Sure a They Do Their Homework and Get To School, And Tend To Her Own Business And School Work. Which She Can’t Do Since She Can’t Cook, Can’t Keep Up With Cleaning and Chores.

    The Poor Children All Have Issues To Begin With When They Basically Have To Raise Themselves Since Their Father Isn’t Doing Anything Fatherly or Caring Out His Duties. He Hides Out In The Bathroom As If Hiding Will Solve Anything! The Eldest Daughter, Has To Asume Vary Adult Responsibilites Since She’s The Eldest. She A Teenager, We All Have Been Ther Once Upon A Time, She Hates Her Father Because He Had A Affair Which Caused Their Mother To Kill Herself. She Wants To Ruin Herself Because Her Father Dosent Love Them and Tries To Kill Herself Like Her Mother Did.

    The Eldest Son Is Suspious Of The New Housekeeper, He Has No Trust In Her and Feels Like She Hiding Something. He Feels Like He Is Stupid and Doesn’t Know What He Is Good At. He Always Gets Yelled At by The Eldest Daughter and The Younger Son. The Youngest Son Is Super Smart But Gets Bullied At School By The Dumb Thug Kids At School. (He Is So Super Cute!) and Lastly The Youngest Daughter, The Death Of Their Mother Affects Her The Most Seeing As She Still Much to Young To Grasp Death and Heaven and All. It Takes Her A Good While To Ajust To Her Passing. She Loves Her Father To A Fault Even After He Tells Her He Doesn’t Even Know If He Loves Them or That He Can’t Even Put The Father Stone With The Other Stones in The Family Box 🙁 She Just Wants To Be A Loving Family. It’s Sad That She Asked The Housekeeper To ‘Kill’ Her So That They Can Go See Her Mother :'(

    The Father Is A Joke! First Of All He Has Zero Paternal Instincts! He Doesn’t Know What Love Is or How To Love A Person! I Think He Is Obsessed With That Women, Not In Love Since He Doesn’t Know What It Is To Begin With. He Is A Weak Man Who Needs To Grow A Back Bone, Needs To Stand Up For Himself and Not Let Others Step All Over Him. I Don’t Think He Ever Loved Their Mother At All, I Think He Only Put A Ring On Because She Got Pregnant and Didn’t Want To Get An Abortion. He Felt Obligated To Stay By Her Side.

    If He Didn’t Love Her He Should Have Divorced Her or Not Even Married Her Just Because She Got Knocked Up With His Kid. In Mean You Still Can Raise The Kid Together But Not Be Together That Way. He Did More Harm Then Good On His Part. What’s Her Face (I Seriously Don’t Remember That Women’s Name For Life Of Me) I Hate It That She Acts Like She’s The Innocent Victim In This Story! Like What Did I Do!? I Didn’t Do Anything Bad? How She Told Their Mom To Go Away So That They Can Be Happy and Be In Peace. To Call And Hear For Herself Who He Choses To Spend His Birthday With That Night. The Nerve She Has To Add That They Are Only See Him As An ATM Machine! I Mean Come On, He’s Their Dad/Husband It’s His Obligation & Duty To Provide For His Family You Stupid Bish!

    But Oh How Karma Is A Bish Though Isn’t She? Lol She Got Used, Knocked Up By A Her Ex Lovers Enemy/Rival, Prometly Dismissed and Asked To Be The Mistress While He Gets Engaged To The CEO’s or Was It the Directors Daughter? It’s One of Those Titles I Don’t Remeber At The Moment. Lol She Didn’t Like That In The Least! Then She Goes Crying To The Ex-Lover On How She Should Have Listened To Him In The Beginning Now He Is The Only She Has Left. She Has The Nerve To Ask Him To Take Responsibility For The Baby She Is Going To Have. Oh Hells Nah! Good Thing He Doesn’t Agree To It As The Good Suspious Housekeeper Shows Up and Saves The Day! I Like How She Tries To Argue With The Housekeeper Telling Her To Stay Out Of The Way and Not To Come Between Her and Her Plans On Being With The Father. She Doesn’t Like The Fact That The Housekeeper Said That She Can and Wants To Replace Her or The Mothers Place In The Family! Its On Like Donkey Kong! 🙂

    Furthermore, She Goes On To Say, That She Would Not Mind Taking Responsibility For His Children, Basically She Didn’t Mind Being A Step Mother, But The Good Housekeeper Wasent Hearing It and Made Sure That He Had Everything Packed To Return Home To The Children. Lol What’s Her Face Didn’t Like That In The Least..

    I Really Hope That He Drops Her Like A Bad Habit or Realizes That He Really Doesn’t Love Her That Its Merely An Obssesion. That He Rather Be Alone Living With His Family and Learning How To Love Them And Mend All The Wounds and Move Forward To Becoming A Loving Family As They Should! 🙂

    Now To The Suspious Housekeeper Park BoK Nyeo, She’s A Women That Has Erased All Human Emotion Due To Unknown Reasons That People and The Family Know About. The Kids Investigate But Get Bits and Pieces From The Lady At The Agency and By Following Her Around. She Is Like A Robot That Does Anything and Everything That It’s Told To Do, Even To Go As Far As Killing! 🙁 She Doesn’t Smile At All, She Doesn’t Want To Have Conversations or Get Close To The Family Or anyone For That Matter.

    Later It’s Revealed Why She Is The Way She Is Like A Robot. She Was Married and Had A Son That Would Have Been The Eldest Sons Age. The Mother In Law Blamed BoK Nyeo For The Death Of Her Son and Grandson and Told Her To Never Smile Again, To Which She Quickly Stopped Crying and Became A Robot Devoid Of Any Emotion. But As why and How That Happened In The First Place Is Yet To Be Reveled Yet. A Mysterious Man Is Following Her Around and Leaves The Family Crypict Ketters Saying That She Is A Murderor. Exactly Who He Is Is A Mystery As We Learn That He Is Employed By Another Mystery Person. It Could Be The Son or Her Husband? Who Knows Time Will Tell In The Remaining Episodes.

    I Really Like How She Is Opening Herself Up More To The Family, In Her Own Way Ofcourse. By Episode 9 She Is Showing Signs That She’s Attached To The Family and Feels Part Of Their Family! She’s Becoming More Protective Of The Children In That She Doesn’t Want That Other Women Around The Kids and Their Father. And Makes Sure That Said Women Doesn’t Get Her Claws Into Him and The Family. Lol Is It Just Me Or Does She Possibly Have A Thing For The Father? For Me She’s Not Going To Leave This Family Ever! 🙂 I Mean Like The Kids Love Her Now And Try To Get Her To Take Family Pics With Them! How Cute! 🙂

    Another Thing That Bugs Me Is The Aunty, Who Is Annoying 🙁 I Have No Idea Why She Is Love With Her Deceased Sisters Husband! I Mean Hello It’s His Fault She Gone and He’s A Cheating Son Of A Gun To Boot! Lol She’s Even Trying To Be Like BoK Nyeo! I Think Shes Jealous Of Her Because The Father Listens To The Housekeeper and Not To Her Who Is Family. It’s Really Annoying When She Step In Front of Her When They Were Trying To Get A Pic Of BoK Nyeo :(.

    I Think That’s Pretty Much My Thoughts, Reactions, Sum Ups and Opnions On All 8 Episodes I’ve Seen To Date 🙂 I’ll Be Back When I Have Watched Episodes 9 & 10 🙂

    @75 Gaby81,
    you are very good to voice out your opinions and what you have said sounds logic.
    One thing may happen to be the same as Secret Love this drama is, the housekeeper and the man with 4 kids may gradually fall in love when the right time comes.

    The housekeeper is getting closer and closer with the family. She has great loving kindness towards the children and she really understands that the children are lack of a mother to love them.

    The man also realised that the housekeeper has a lot of good kind characters when he was betrayed by Yoon Song Hwa,
    this affair woman had greatly disheartened him when their relationships turned sour and finally brokeoff.

    The employer of the maid agency also can predict that it will be a blessing if the housekeeper can match with the man with 4 kids to restart her fresh life and gain happiness.

    Eun Sang Chul has difficulty to heal the housekeeper’s broken heart . The housekeeper cannot removed all her sufferings from her mind and heart ,but, one thing i am very sure that the 4 kids can influence her.

    And something looks very strange to the housekeeper’s bag ?
    How is it she has everything in her bag . When the kids wanted something, she can easily take out from her bag.
    Is it her bag got her family photographs ?

    Now, i’m looking forward to watch episode 11 .

  77. 77 : Gaby81 Says:

    @MML76 Yeah The Children So Love BoK Nyeo Even though She’s Emotionally Damaged 🙂 Lol Episode 10 Basically Pretty Much Tells The Audience That The Triangle Has Formed, That The Housekeeper Has Become Attached The Family And The Father. Lol The Fathers Reaction When She Comes And Interrupts His Conversation With What’s Her Face 🙂

    I Pretty Much Ruined It By Reading Recaps and Whatnot, But I’m Still Going To Watch How The ‘Romance’ Blossoms! 🙂

  78. 78 : ABC90 Says:

    This dramas so good!!!!!

  79. 79 : Fullheart Says:

    Quite interesting. I do like the actor playing the Dad. He has a very interesting look.

    OMG You Guise! It’s Getting So Epic! I’ll Post My Extremely Lost Post(s) Later Today 🙂

  81. 81 : Sodasister Says:

    Why is ep12 not airing today(29 Oct) and it’s airing baseball competition now…??
    Is ep12 airing on next week??That means this week only one episode??

  82. 82 : Dramaluvr Says:

    That CEO Jang is a creep. Playing games with everyone. Why doesn’t he just fall for the dads lover? That would be a nice tidy resolution to this. Does this guy have a twin.
    The children should wind up with the housekeeper but if this ends the way f the Japanese version I don’t think it will end that way

  83. 83 : Gaby81 Says:

    @dramaluver I Haven’t Seen The Original Japanese Version So I Don’t Know How That Ends Hopefully Not With Her Obsessed Stalker… That Guys A Total Loone 🙁

  84. 84 : mml Says:

    @83 Gaby81,
    me too, i also did not watch the Original Japanese Version.
    Actually, this drama should not follow the Japanese version it should follow one goal, that is to capture the heart of viewers.
    Me, as a viewer i hope that the housekeeper can find her love and happiness with the man with 4 kids.

    After watching episode 11, i have realised that the two men who team up to be stalker, one was the police detective and the other man was Eun Sang Chul’s colleague looks like both have agreed to make the housekeeper to re-start her fresh life. What’s the mystery behind ? Could it be the stalker had already fell in love with the housekeeper ?
    I will continue to watch episode 12 and at the end of this drama , i still hope that the housekeeper can be the stepmother of the 4 kids.

  85. 85 : Dramaluvr Says:

    @gaby81. I didn’t watch the Japanese version either but I read a synopsis on that story. It does not end badly but I’ll just say its more of a neutral ending not bad or good the way many hope it to end. I hope it’s different and the writer deviates from that ending. I won’t say in case someone wants to see that version.

  86. 86 : John k Says:

    This drama is so annoying it pisses me off. A cop who is corrupt,who’s a piece of shit,a stalker who is also out of his mind. Korean drama is getting worse every day

  87. 87 : mml Says:

    @86 John k,
    you are a very evil person, who speaks evil words. I really don’t like you to speak bad things about Korea drama.
    This is a mystery drama, so, therefore, we may see something different, e,g a cop who is corrupt to draw our attention.
    Since, you don’t like to watch then don’t watch, why come to this website and say stupid things.
    Korea dramas some nice to watch and some not nice to watch and that does not mean is getting worse every day.
    You are hopeless person in understanding drama.

  88. 88 : cellist13 Says:

    i kinda feel that the ceo jang and the detective is kinda creepy~~ it’s like you can’t estimate what would they do to the housekeeper next!! from their words, it seems kind and they wanted to do something good for her, but everytime when i look at the detective’s expression, it was like he is planning something that is up to no good~~ btw, i hate the lover soooooo much~~ she was like:’lets make things clear’. and bla bla bla~~ but she ends up continuously interrupting eun sang chul… i thought she was leaning toward ceo?! as a women, don’t she feel ashame?!

  89. 89 : Dramaluvr Says:

    I like this drama but am annoyed at the CEO/detective alliance. I had to stop watching at that point but its a drama. It can be whatever it wants to be. I will go back & watch the rest after I get a grip. I am so hoping the housekeeper winds up being the mother of the kids. Her face softens when she’s with the kids It’s touching especially the little one

  90. 90 : mml Says:

    Episode 12, will make me understands that the stalker which is actually the killer loves the housekeeper,but that’s not the way to make the housekeeper falls in love with him. And episode 12 will fill up our heart, that kids can choose and can decide what kind of stepmother they want.

    I believe that this drama will be better rating in episode 13 and the rest of the episodes. The reason, some of you may not like this drama, mainly due to the housekeeper who speaks in a mono tone or like a robot. As she suffers too much hurt in life and she became doesn’t know how to respond to life.

    This is a kids’ drama with adults as companion. I also feel that the kids should have a good stepmother.

  91. 91 : Dramaluvr Says:

    That CEO Jang is a disturbed man. Some things here are not clear. They go back to a scene with what looks like him in a wheelchair talking to the detective. So was it him or a twin? The mother-in-law is following her so would she stop her torment if this Jang gets what he wants.? I dont call what he feels love. It’s obsession, wanting to posess her like property so maybe he was lacking in his own motherly love & put her on this pedestal. She can’t be anyone’s mother, wife etc and that jerk wants her to smile? What a crock. Any woman should run away from men like this. They’re bullies with pants

  92. 92 : Fullheart Says:

    Hoping the description, “Family, mystery” is a clue as to the depth of despair will occur. If the two bad guys were going to be totally a nightmare then would not it be labeled melodrama. Plus we still have the mystery of the girls boyfriend and why he is letting his Dad ruin his life.

  93. 93 : josie Says:

    I like tha CEO to be paired with Park Bok Nyeo, they acted well and they have a good chemistry when they are together. CEO maybe the one to bring back the beautiful sweet smile of the suspicious housekeeper.

  94. 94 : mml Says:

    @93 josie,
    maybe, it could be the kids who bring back the beautiful sweet smile of the suspicious housekeeper.

  95. 95 : Rose Says:

    Seeing the flashback with the CEO in a wheelchair might indicates that he’s going to die from some kind of disease so he want want the house keeper to be happy n be able to smile before he departfrom the world. That’s my opinion. N the CEO is cute I like him

  96. 96 : Dramaluvr Says:

    They did it because they loved…….

    Both CEO and Yoon Hwa do damaging acts to the housekeepers spouse and the mom thinking it’s love. Which is twisted thinking with no conscience
    When actually it’s not love but control. They’re capable of causing the
    destruction of those the view are in they’re way…..those children need to
    Watch out! The housekeeper will have to do the protecting

  97. 97 : Gisel Says:

    Why this drama has a low rating? Its a bad drama? 🙁

  98. 98 : fayey Says:

    The CEO is a weird man, why he doesn’t want that Park Bok Nyeo to be closed with that family and be the kids mom. Maybe he loves very much the suspicious housekeeper.

  99. 99 : Dramaluvr Says:

    By now this CEO should get the message she doesn’t want him

    But this guy is attracted to her because of that He’ll use his money to control people. He even wants to control the dad & the lover The has a lot of nerve putting himself in their private lives. It’s called harassment and very unprofessional in a business setting

    If he won the housekeeper he would be bored. It’s the chase that is keeping him interested. Weirdo

  100. 100 : S biscoglia Says:

    What is the last thing that the housekeeper says in ep 14? Viki did not translate it !

  101. 101 : Greet Says:

    The litlle girl is cute while she is with Park Bok Nyeo they have chemistry to be mother and daughter. How come the father scared of the housemaid to be his wife lol! maybe he sees her as a robot and not a wifey material. She needs to smile and change her style of dress and hair to attract the father.

  102. 102 : mml Says:

    @100 S biscoglia,
    the last thing that the housekeeper told Eun Sang Chul was she had accepted the fact he refused to accept her as his wife and she had agreed to give up on it and willing to start her relationships with the bad stalker guy.

    I’m looking forward to watch episode15 and episode16,
    maybe, the housekeeper will find out the truth by herself.
    Is very sad to see, if, the housekeeper ends up with the bad stalker guy who killed her husband and her son.

    Who can help the housekeeper to heal her sorrows in her heart ?

  103. 103 : Dramaluvr Says:

    I think the children are the only ones with the key to her smile. However, even that can never happen

    She has a new tactic up her sleeve after seeing the CEO playing games along
    With the Dad’s lover. The dad who by the way deserves no respect for being such a wimp. She probably wants to make the CEO’s life miserable. Good for her! He destroyed her life. No smiles or winks for him.

  104. 104 : kdcraze Says:

    is this drama good?

  105. 105 : Pipi the pooh Says:

    Wonderful! family drama. Beautiful Ji Woo, you’re daebak! Ms Bok Nyeo, Fighting!

  106. 106 : just_saying Says:

    I like CJW in Winter Sonata – that’s how I come to know about Korean drama. Anyway, I don’t really follow this drama but it is still interesting. For a change, I like that it’s not the typical romance drama etc. And I have to agree with @mml about the kids making BN smile again rather than the father.

    After she smile and becomes ‘alive’ again, then maybe there should be some courting between the father and BN. Then, it’ll make sense coz we still want BN to have a happy life after all the hardships she went through.

  107. 107 : just_saying Says:

    BN should change the jacket and the cap. It makes her look kind of ugly, like a guy (no insult intended). She can still portray her ‘robotic’ characters from the way she walks etc. Or, wear a white/black colored jacket and just simply ties her hair. But lose the cap. She doesn’t really need the outfits to show her character as someone who has gone through hard times. She managed to do it through her act and facial expression.

  108. 108 : Dramaluvr Says:

    The demented CEO is probably planning on killing her. He’ll also kill the
    Crooked cop since he’s coming around for more $$$. Doesn’t the cop realize he’s dealing with a nutcase?

  109. 109 : Elands Jenkins Says:

    Why is it not in english

  110. 110 : Elands Jenkins Says:

    Why is it no longer in english

  111. 111 : Dramaluvr Says:

    Well now he’s been found out Hope she sent the video to more than
    Just the dad then it would beta waste cause he’s right there at the
    House with the corrupt cop

    That CEO is a perverted creep. Yuck

  112. 112 : rm018 Says:

    Is it worth watching?

  113. 113 : Dramaluvr Says:

    We have a lot of spoilers here so don’t read above you

    I think it was interesting If you want a straightforward love story maybe not

    A lot of the focus here is on children Talented children doing a fine job if acting

  114. 114 : Dramaluvr Says:

    ******spoiler alert. *****

    I do not like what the aunt has done inserting herself She should have
    Been there for those kids at the beginning. After all 3 years had passed
    Since the mother died. What was she doing in that time? She is not a good role model. There’s something strange like she’s been in love with her brother in law. It smacks of incestous feelings on her part. At least it’s implied

    What a strange end to this story

  115. 115 : Dramaluvr Says:

    Well I saw the last episode raw. It did end a lot better than I thought

    I just think the real mother was so stupid to kill herself because the
    Lover said she was an obstacle. The children were also an obstacle would she have considered killing them too? Obviously not. She should have thought things over before committing such a selfish act towards herfamily who needed her. She should have given them a chance to help her with their love, very sad indeed

  116. 116 : imhel Says:

    i give this drama 4 stars. the kids are good actors. the future of k-drama is assured seeing that there are quite a few good child/teen actors. the script was great without giving much clue away until the end…each episode left you wondering whats going to happen next. the drama also leaves some values to the viewer…it’s up to viewer to pick-up the morals & virtues shown in this drama. all in all I would say this drama was well-balanced.

  117. 117 : imhel Says:

    justsaying comment 107

    pls refer to final episode There is a reason why she wore the watch, the cap, the jacket & the bag. this is why i like this drama. it doesnt quickly justify the hows & whys of the storyline but in the end there’s the full vindication by the writer.

  118. 118 : mml Says:

    Yes, is a happy ending, it’s really worth watching this drama.
    Rating will not be that accurate, i like this drama, this is subject to my own preference. I hope the rest of the viewers will also like this drama.

  119. 119 : peyutnduy Says:

    The ending was good although we didn’t know for sure whether she came back as the housemaid again or as their mommy. So it would be much much nicer if we could see scenes when she became their mother. Either by showing us their wedding or they came to the court (?) to register their marriage. ;”)

  120. 120 : just_saying Says:

    Watched final episode.

    @peyutnduy 119. I was wondering the same thing. Did she came back as a housemaid or as a ‘woman’.

    Plus, I’m not that… satisfied with the scripts when they gathered at the river. They’ve chosen the dead mom over BN and they told her to LEAVE. Then, at home, they want her to stay – as what? stays as the housekeeper? It’s a bit selfish, cruel.

    No insults/offends intended but, the mom is dead, you can’t hold on to dead people. Live goes on. We just need to remember them but we need to treasure the people that is still alive. BN would have understand and it wouldn’t be too embarrassing for her to stay. How can she stay when the children literally ask her to leave.

    The scripts is a bit harsh when they simply asked BN to leave because they’ve decided to choose their dead mother. I’m just not happy about it. If I were BN, I wouldn’t have gone back even after a year. Unless they said sth abt wanting BN to come back because they love her as a person, not as the housekeeper.

    And that’s why, the ending is a bit confusing – did BN came back as a ‘wife/mother’ or a housekeeper?

  121. 121 : Dramaluvr Says:

    I guess the way this story was written the viewer makes their own ending in their mind. It’s open

    So, I see it this way

    They all needed to grieve. Especially BN. The year away helped her to
    Come back smiling. It was a new beginning for them. The bridge was the little one who told her she loved her. Everyone else would follow in due time. They all needed each other for different reasons I see this as a family joining under a different circumstance. BN still had her outfit but this time she wore her smile. That’s my ending

  122. 122 : KC Says:

    Good actors and actresses with GOOD ENDING. LIke it… 🙂

  123. 123 : puput Says:

    I agree that it is a wonderful drama….eventhough it has hardly any romance in it. And I enjoy it very much

  124. 124 : Song Ji Hyo Says:

    How can I watch this drama??

  125. 125 : Dramaluvr Says:


    Go to viki.com and do a search for the title above

  126. 126 : Rose Says:

    Really nice drama. I did NOT care at all about the neighbor storyline. the sister in law was towards the ending. park was not trying to replace the mother at all. na yeong was just bitter because the children liked park way more than her. the grandfathers storyline was nice.

  127. 127 : Rose Says:

    Also. so what happened to Seo Ji Hoon??? did he die in jail. they should of shown an update on that

  128. 128 : jude65 Says:

  129. 129 : MLittleN Says:

    I watched a couple of Episodes but still PREFER the ORIGINAL version which is the Japanese NTV 2011 Drama 家政婦のミタ (Chinese Title: 家政妇三田)
    Watch here ( http://www.245ys.com/vod-play-id-17557-sid-0-pid-1.html )

  130. 130 : Amber Says:

    This is one of the best drama I watched the fact that Choi Ji Woo is my favorite. I simply enjoyed watching each episode it made me cry, laugh, reflect. There are lessons learned in this drama, it’s a thumbs up for me.

  131. 131 : Sally Says:

    This was one of the stupidest dramas. I liked the Japanese version much better. And it has nothing to do with Choi Ji Woo who I happened to think is not that great of an actress. People think she’s beautiful, but I only see her overbite and what appears to be too much plastic surgery or Botox or something. Seeing pictures of her from just a few years ago is a dramatic difference.

  132. 132 : Chelsea BT Says:

    This is one of my favorite Korean dramas, though honestly I found a lot of the characters very annoying..but that’s why I like it so much because it makes me feel such emotion. For half the series I couldn’t stand the dad because I thought he was a total selfish a**hole, I mean your wife has died because of you and your family is in a shambles but you quit your job and leave the house to chase after this woman? And I couldn’t stand Yoon Song Hwa either. She was such a selfish b*tch, not thinking that this man had a family and his priorities should be to them, but she practically acted as though he was more entitled to her than his kids. I found the older daughter rather irritating too at first. She was so immature and self-pitying, I understand the kids were going through a lot but she was just too much. Instead of acting maturely like an eldest child should and look after your siblings you run off and be stupid. Even though her boyfriend was a prick he was right when he complained about her using him as a drain and crying to him about her issues. And you’re kind of dumb when you like a guy who is interested in you only for sex. She should’ve gone for the other dude who actually cared about her. And the next door neighbor is such an annoyingly overbearing woman, gossipy and nosy. Would hate to live next to someone like her. But yeah, great drama and I honestly couldn’t stop watching. The acting is great too.
