    I just hope that thisdrama will have a happy ending. The hardworking bok hee to end up romantically with the silent and sincere ardent and ever faithful admirer president, Mr. Hong. He was a former rake but he had changed to be a good man at the end. In fact, he had helped many including Bok hee to change thier lives and be successful at the end. We must remember that everyone of us is given the chance to be a better person; it’s our choice. So why not give chance to the president and bokhee to live happily ever after.

    Some highlights of episode 114, please don’t read if you don’t want spoiler.

    Dojin decided to stay with BokHee, He said this time he’s going to be the big brother to take care of BokHee, so sweet!

    President Hung actually stepped out of his office(!) to visit Bok Hee at the winery. Although he said he had business nearby but everybody (Dojin and I!) knew he was there because he missed BokHee.

    Eun Joo said Min Soo didn’t really love her so she refused to get married.

    Professor Kang showed his feeling towards Bok Hee when Bok Hee went out with President Hung.

    That’s all I got so far for episode 104, the streaming stopped half way. Might add more if I could get back to finish watching the episode.

    Sally Says:

    Oh dear, it is obvious (hopefully to the writer too) that most viewers want Bok Hee to end up with President Hong! I don’t quite like Mr Kang’s bland character (too whiny & trying too hard to be goody). As for his daughter, I liked her initially as she is very cute and pretty but not now as she is becoming more and more whiny and clingy. May be Bok Hee’s downfall as Bok Hee loves her very much.
    I think Mr Kang is becoming to be less interesting than President Hong so let’s hope the writer will show more of President Hong in future episodes, agreed?

    boo to the writer if that kang end up with bok hui. daughter is too spoiled!!

    Syrena Says:

    I’ll agree with everyone that Bok Hee should end up with President Hong.

    It’s one of those Korean dramas with no high ticketed stars and yet enjoyable to watch.

    I’m hooked until the end.

    oh my god went or they going to put some life in to Bok-Hee she is so boring, i hope they put her with President Hung

    cyn Says:

    all comments bok hee shd end with president hung.bok hee is good too be true.Boring!!!

    imel Says:

    I would like Bokhui to end with Yeongpyo but it seems like the writer favors the lady who plays Geumju. Although the novel is titled TV Novel Bokhui, sometimes I feel that the central character is Geumju, specially when the scene is with her and Yeongpyo while the theme song plays.

  11. 61
    Sally Says:

    I have a feeling that Bok Hui will end up with boring Mr Kang & daughter despite us hoping for a happy ending with President Hong.

    mimi Says:

    I’ve only watched till Ep 114 and will not be able to watch anymore until further notice .Can someone update me Please?? BTW I hate Mija & Malgu!! such hateful duo, but without them the story would be boring. And also Kang and his daughter.Kang too stuck up and daughter too clingy.

    loudette Says:

    …nice drama, heartwarming…I’m watching it in the morning and also the re-run in the afternoon…I’ve seen, if not all, most of the korean tv dramas/novels and dear my sister is one of the top ten among my favorites… I like Yeongpyo and Geumju (who can act well even thru the expression with her eyes, crying, hurting in the loss of her child and her divorced from Taeyung… I’ve cried so much when Geumju and Taeung were talking about their child and to let go of her because he doesn’t want to hate each other for the rest of their lives…when Taeung asked Yeongpyo to come to the hotel and talked about Geumju, I’ve cried and felt sorry for Taeung… admired Yeongpyo for his unending love and concern for Geumju in all the five years they were separated (episodes 92, 93, 94)…I think the title dear my sister is about the relationship of Bokhee to his brother Boknam, to Yeongpyo as a good old friend and confidante and to Geumju as a stepsister.

    Micc Says:

    That old doctor and his wife are so so annoying! They keep wanting Bok Hee to marry Professor Kang for their own sake!

  15. 65
    Micc Says:

    Oh, and they totally demean her by saying who would take her since she was uneducated and grew up like an orphan! And she should considered herself lucky to be the wife of a widower and became a stepmother. Somebody knock some sense into them please!

    Nas Says:

    I watch this drama here in The Netherland love’t so much I hope Bok Hee will end up with Mr President Hung, and that she slap Eun Joo’s face for once, hate that bicht,,!!

    zzz Says:

    I love the inspiring storyline but it tooks so many characters to tell. sometimes it lost its focus so I feel bored and tired just to wait what will going to happen to bokhui. but I steel love to watch the drama every morning =) I prefer Kang jungmo to end up with bokhui. they realy match to each other

  18. 68
    amn Says:

    anybody saw the last episode of bokhui?
    tell us the brief summary,please………^^

    cyn Says:

    suddenly 2009.bok hee ended with nobody! boring ending.

  20. 70
    Micc Says:

    Yea, it’s a disappointing ending. Geum Joo and Young Pyo went to Paris together. Grandma passed away. President Hung and Professor Kang built a school together. Winery was a huge success. FF to 2009, Bok Hee was a successful career woman. During an interview, she said if she met somebody she loved more than Makgeolli (Korean Rice Wine), than she would think about marriage. The end.

  21. 71
    Aaron Says:

    Truly disappointing indeed…
    feels like that there suddenly went bankrupt and anyhow rushing to finish the drama…….sigh… and i thought how great it would be with another time skip, there’s a lot of story to tell, and

    I PROTEST FOR AN EPILOGUE EPISODE!!!! finish alll the questions left open….if not do a sequel..

  22. 72
    sadiah md nor Says:

    i agree with CYN MICC AARON, been following the whole episodes till 130ep a rather abrupt ending vvv disappointed.After dragging in some episodes the sadness and hard lives of Bok Hee it ended only as success wine saver, what about her personal life,what about her love in making clothes a saver too?a lot of important parts and people involved were missing and as Aaron pointed out the drama is as though rushing for time to complete.DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!!

  23. 73
    Brooke Says:

    Well, I have to say that there are very few KDramas that have yet to NOT disappoint me. The only 3 I can think of that were ok for me are Chil Sisters, Mom’s Dead Upset, and Three Brothers.

  24. 74
    imjel Says:

    Disappointing ending.
    I knew it, the writer favored the lady who played Geumju over the lady who played Bokhui.
    Geumju’s story was more romantic…focus was more on her…really disappointed.

  25. 75
    mingler Says:

    I am very upset that only 60 episodes are viewable on American
    tv !!! Bokhui is the main reason I was drawn to this drama.
    My criticism of the writers is that they donot know how to
    execute and maintain the key story line.Let there be a follow-up
    story line of bokhui’s life !!!

  26. 76
    Anne Says:

    Why do you say that only 60 episodes are available on America tv.
    I am up to episode 94 and it is ongoing and I live in America?????

    Jun Reyes Says:

    I enjoyed watching Jang Mi In Ae as Bokhui in this TV drama. I hope to see her in more dramas. She’s a beautiful and talented actress.

    kelly Says:

    I liked the movie but the end…I really didn’t like it, I mean I see the winery is a success but how about the others, I only saw Bokhui, what happened to Geumju and Youngpyo, how about Taeju’s baby(is it a boy or a girl)…
    I really expected a lot.
    but it was still a great movie, I felt like I was in the 70s :>

    gulfpearl Says:

    Constable Odo Says:


    I think it depends where you live and whether you have cable or Dish or get special programming. I know that some people are further ahead than I am that live in the U.S in NYC. I have TimeWarner Cable and they’re only up to around episode 50 or so but there are people that get KBS World directly in the U.S. and like you said, they’re up to where you are. I’m watching Dear My Sister episodes uploaded to Aveoh.com and they’re only up to episode 80 but more recent episodes will likely be uploaded very soon.

  32. 82
    mingler Says:

    Please , make it soom !!! I AM WATCHING REPEATS OF EPISODE 80 !!! This is truly a great watch , I’m in Brooklyn ,NY . , using
    cablevision …which is slow, I went online to get up to episode 80!
    After all the reality smut , this program is like coming into a
    breath of fresh , clean air !!!

  33. 83
    Toni Says:

    I love this drama!!!! Someone knows the name of the romantic song plays sometimes Gemju and Yongpyo are together????

  34. 84
    Roger Says:

    Any body know where can find online episodes of this program. Been hospital since 6/4/2012. Also program (my one and only) on KBS WORLD.

  35. 85
    Nathalie Says:

    The song is Hurt with a thorn by Kim HyungSeob ^^

  36. 86
    Helena Says:

    Why isn’t the actor who plays Mr. Hong not listed anywhere? I’ve checked the beginnings of each episode and he isn’t in the credits. Who is he? Like everyone else I want the match between Bokhui and Mr. Hong to happen.
    Thank you to KBS for these enjoyable dramas. I also loved High Kick and The Great King Sejoung.

    ILKD Says:

    Just finished watching episode #128 on WMBC in New Jersey. Here is the summary only if anyone is interested:

    Taeju’s grandmother dies, but peacefully in her sleep. Just before her death, she was happy to learn that Taeju was going to father a child. Her memory came back briefly after visiting a Buddhist temple and she expressed her gratitude for her daughter-in-law’s hard work.

    In a surprise development that turned out to be poetic justice, Mr. Shin, Youngpyo’s boss, is arrested by tax authorities. He is brutal in killing the competition and even pressured a wholesaler not to carry the wine that Bokhee had successfully made after a lot of dedication and hard work. Speculations are that a competitor blew whistle on Mr. Shin.

    Beautiful drama …. I really thought this was an old drama, Choi Woo seok.
    is very good looking and touching performance with his quiet ways, Ryohei Otani was good. Of course , I like Mr. Hong too. The one I didn.t
    like was Eunju and Yang couple full of envy and bad intentions. Bokhui reminds me of Choi ji woo.
    The story has many good lessons to be learned, but in an entertaining and not preaching way.
    The best was the they were able to take us back to life in the 60’s, so authentic.
