  17. 17 : Brooke Says:

    Have just watched this drama and I’m hooked already. I like kind of this drama because it’s a family drama. I don’t watch weekdays dramas these days cause all of the storylines were weird except this one! I think this drama it’s gonna be a good drama. And I wish there will be more scenes times for my favorite pairing in this drama: Jung Ma Ri and Lee Ro Oh. They are so cute and funny together 🙂

  18. 18 : D. R. Aleka Says:

    It never fails watching on Viki the English Subtitles are not reliable.

    Ep. 1 and 2 were great but Ep. 3 the English Subtitles come and go.

    What causes this? Why? Why? Why?

    Thank you!

  19. 19 : D. R. Aleka Says:

    Hello! The Hot Temper Team,

    English Subtitles were not missing in the first half of Ep 3 but half way it started missing the Eng. Subs. I thought it was fixed.

    PLEASE do what you do.

    Thank you!

  20. 20 : Jyenie Says:

    Just watched ep 3, really enjoyed it.
    The writer is the writer of the controversial When The Man loves.
    The scene that Kang Soon Ok kicked her late husband’s elegant and sick mistress was unbelievably crude😨

  21. 21 : Brooke Says:

    I’m liking this drama so far as I’m huge fan of a drama with strong female casts. All of them were superb! This drama also finally can beat out KMHM (MBC) for TV ratings. Yes this drama deserve good ratings!

  22. 22 : Sesli Says:

    I don’t watch weekdays dramas these days cause all of the storylines were weird except this one! I think this drama it’s gonna be a good drama.

  23. 23 : park vin young Says:

  24. 24 : mariana Says:

    Yes, I like the story line, is different from the others and these women ….wow.. such a strong personalities !!

  25. 25 : kitkat Says:

    Aigoo! Women rules this drama?

    Oh no, be prepared for Third World War !

    (Don’t get me wrong. Please don’t burn me at the stake. I’m a woman too. But women are scary people, especially when they congregate all at one “place”. )

  26. 26 : rr Says:

    i really enjoy this drama

  27. 27 : Brooke Says:

    Interesting story so far and I love Mari and Roo oh together, I hope they get more scenes together in the next episodes 😉

  28. 28 : BabesC Says:

    I like the story so far!! the acting of all the cast is good!! But the reason why i follow this drama is because of Lee Ha Na.. I am a fan of her..She is a complete actress.. She is really good!

  29. 29 : anongpan Says:

    I have to watch it twice to see what i miss. They’re all related to each other or know each other in some ways. I like the way it is. Love this drama.

  30. 30 : Jyenie Says:

    Everyone is acting very well in this drama and unique plots.

  31. 31 : Brooke Says:

    Great episodes both of ep 7 & 8. Mari and Roo Oh were so funny and cute in both episodes and always giving me such a good feeling to watch this couple, and also Mari’s mom and dad were also cute couple in here. This drama have lot amazing ahjumma/ahjussi actresses and actors, they are all amazing casts. Can’t wait for next episodes!

  32. 32 : Nessa Says:

    Oh man…Song Jae Rim oppa, I’m freaking happy to watch you in here. At ep 8 – necktie scene was really funny. I love the OTP in here SJR and LHN. Hopefully there’re stick together till the end.

  33. 33 : ughh Says:

    love it love it love it <3

  34. 34 : CoolBeans Says:

    A solid drama with some unexpected turns. Song Jae Rim has a good role in this and playing the part just fine. I hope he gets the girl. But, it’s too early to tell by episode 8!

  35. 35 : bafoon Says:

    Song Jae Rim, fighting!! Be a Star of 2015 !

  36. 36 : non_conformsit Says:

    After watching the first episode, I thought it is going to be a drama with serious story. But later, I changed my mind.

    It is really funny and entertaining with interesting plot and character. I love the way the screenwriter tell the story, gradually develop and reveal the relationship of each character. The way they make my smile is so simple, yet very entertaining.

    I love Kang Soon Ok and Jang Mo Ran. They are really funny with their smiles and those unkind words. I also love Jung Ma Ri and Lee Roo Oh. They gradually give each other good feelings in a really simple way but it is touching and cute.

  37. 37 : Marie Q Says:

    Lee Ha Na, happy to see u in a new drama, always enjoy yr past dramas. Keep up the good work and I liked Chae Shi Ra in this drama too, She is such a good actress. As for Song Jae Rim, I remembered him in “Two Weeks” only and didn’t know he had acted on other dramas.. Kim Ji Suk, hoped you will get lead role in dramas. This is my first drama for 2015.

  38. 38 : fans Says:

    Tbh I started watching this drama after knowing Song Jae Rim will be starred as one of the leads. Which means, I’m happy knowing that his character will get the girl (since it always the lead will get the girl). But after watching a few episodes of this, I started to fall in love with Kim Ji Seok’s character and I find that his relationship with Lee Ha Na’s character is sweeter. But what to do? I already dissapointed with my ship since I know that it won’t end happily. So, I hope Kim Ji Seok’s character won’t be too in love with Lee Ha Na’s because it’s painful to watch. :'(

  39. 39 : Brooke Says:

    Sooo happy this drama is really doing so well as they have good story, great acting from all of the casts. No wonder they get good TV ratings until now. I hope MaRoo couple will end up together at the end. Please writer-nim don’t make messing up story for this couple.

    And I just watched ep 9 and 10 Raw, the story was good so far. The chemistry between SJR and LHN was freaking amazing. Now waiting for the subs.

  40. 40 : Jyenie Says:

    I really enjoy every second of this drama. Nice!

  41. 41 : Brooke Says:

    Heard that this drama will be extended for 6 episodes…wow that is too many extension. Don’t know whether will we be happy or not for that. We have to see what is going to happen for next epidodes.

  42. 42 : Jyenie Says:

    Can’t wait to watch ep 12 🙂

  43. 43 : pushpanjali Says:

    I too enjoy every second of this drama… Fighting UW 🙂

  44. 44 : Meijiarnella Says:

    I like all the main cast, great acting , interesting story, great ost….!!!!
    So exciting about their love story ( esp kim hyeon sok with his husband , Mari ro oh , and her aunty with the le moon sok )!!!!!
    Fighting !!!!!

  45. 45 : OK OK OK Says:

    I am going to watch this drama because of Song Jae Rim :0
    He is so fair, cool & handsome in Surplus Princess – Chef 🙂

  46. 46 : Jyenie Says:

    Ep 13
    Kang Soon Ok’s flying kick is very powerful which causes her estranged husband hospitalised.

  47. 47 : OK OK OK Says:

    Today i started watching from ep1 to ep6 – NICE drama with good story – worth watching so far.
    I also like to watch Song Jae Rim & Lee Ha Na. hope they end up together 🙂

  48. 48 : OK OK OK Says:

    ep 8

    I like the part when Song Jae Rim ask Lee Ha Na to help him to tie the red necktie.
    Too bad when Song Jae Rim ask Lee Ha Na not to accept that “guy” sweetness towards her not know LHN is talking about him, oh dear (I really hope this couple can end up together)

    I also like the part when Lee Ha Na’s mother went to Son Chang Min’s house to tell him and his nephew what kind of bad teacher she has in her high school days.

    Ha ha, both get a shock when they hear the name 😛

  49. 49 : OK OK OK Says:

    Ep 10

    Bravo!!! 😛
    1st 10 mins, Song Jae Rim ssi ask Lee Ha Na infront of all his students to transfer to other martial arts school so that he can woo her. What a brave gentleman !!

    Because rules of the school is Teacher and students cannot have any romance courtships …..

    I am so happy they are going to be a couple in this drama.

  50. 50 : OK OK OK Says:

    ep 11

    i don’t like to see 2 brothers or 2 friends falling for same girl. 🙁

    Now Song Jae Rim found out that his elder brother also likes his gf.

    Please do not let SONG JAE RIM give up his gf for the sake of his elder brother bc Lee Ha Na also likes SJR.
    Thank you.

  51. 51 : OK OK OK Says:

    Lee Mi Do as Park Eun Sil – i dislike her character in the drama. Greedy, scheming 🙁

  52. 52 : Carmen Says:

    The 1sr wife, should let her husband to move on….why she wants to deal with him, after he left her for another woman….and that woman try to kill him….

  53. 53 : miso Says:

    Cannot understand why after all these years (30 yrs) the Mother (Soon Ok) is still so hung up on her husband (supposedly ex husband). Why does she allow what had happened to continue to eat into here.

    And why does she still allow the husband’s mistress to continue to live with her? Looks like they both like to keep throwing barbs at each other at every opportunity they get. Is this good living? What for?

  54. 54 : stela Says:

    What a nice drama, with great actors, good story line and intelligent script Makes me laugh and cry with the unique brand of humor..

  55. 55 : kitkat Says:

    Earlier I had my reservations (#25 kitkat) about watching this drama thinking that it would be about a bunch of scary women who would create havoc. Did watch this drama anyway and my opinion has been changed.

    The women here are scary alright, but the story the drama is telling is much more meaningful, substantial and real. This drama is the real world !

    Its story is deep and meaningful. Touching ! Riveting !

    The story touches viewers’ heart, senses and emotions. There were so many times I held my breath, glued my eyes to a scene, just being captivated by it, trying to digest the full meaning of the story it’s telling. I was stumped by the emotions of the scenes.

    The whole production crew, from the scriptwriters, directors to the whole cast of actors/actresses has done a splendid job telling the story in this drama.

  56. 56 : loulou Says:

    This was a very good drama but the ending was too rushed…

  57. 57 : kitkat Says:

    Rushed endings! Yeah, this is what I have noticed happened to most shows. It’s like it’s a disease or is a “demise ritual” which most dramas must go through before wrapping up.

    Sure is a dampener!

    If not, the production crew including the writer could be inflicted with this other “disease” – the “no brakes’ syndrome, a rather common affliction which writers do get it sometimes.

    Many a time writers do get so engrossed that they do not know when to slow down for the ending – until it is too late, and then wham bang, they step on the brakes. The result – we get a rushed “god knows what was that(?)” ending. Not exactly a great feeling.

    Personally, I had a friend who was afflicted with this “no brakes” syndrome and it cost him much. He was writing and preparing an anime for a Japanese Producer. Got so carried away with his story, did know to slow down and wrap up for the ending. Missed the dateline. The Japanese Producer was mad with him, cancelled the contract and all other potential work.

  58. 58 : kitkat Says:

    Correction : Should read – “Did not know to slow down and wrap up for the ending.”

  59. 59 : OK OK OK Says:

    Lee Mi Do as Park Eun Sil – i dislike her character in the drama. Greedy, scheming in the beginning

    you repent in the end. I am so touch. You are a good actress. 🙂

  60. 60 : OK OK OK Says:

    Finally happy ending. All acted well. I enjoy this drama. 🙂

  61. 61 : Krama2014 Says:

    I watched the last two episodes on the 15th of May and I was disappointed to see how the writer or writers ended the series. If he or she or them took time to write the first 23 episodes, I think the last episode should be given more time or at least an equal time.

  62. 62 : Luzzieh Says:

    Can someone explain the ending? Is it just me or what, what happened to the granddaughter loveline? hanging?

  63. 63 : Breanna Says:

    I’m obsessed with this show!! I hope there’s a second season this is my favorite show! Watched all 24 episodes in 3 days!! Lol love this and enjoyed very much

  64. 64 : Sunflower Says:

    I think this family drama was good. It shown about daily problem. But I wonder about jeong ma ri, lee roo ong, lee do jin love story. I support ma ri and lee do jin but it was little bit disappointed because jeong ma ri chose lee roo ong. I think lee roo ong is just handsome, but no chemistry and no charismatic. Lee do jin is more attractive, smarter, and he has chemistry with jeong ma ri.
