What a gem - many wonderful performances and wise human insights
This is an amazing and moving show about a tight knit family of 3 generations. 54 episodes may seem daunting. But rest assured it is well written and enjoyable throughout. Kim Soo Hyun the writer - not the actor put so many wonderful human insights into this mutli generational drama that many people will recognize some family members among them. Look out for the tactless grand aunt and the abrasive son. There are some stellar performances here. A cheerful Jung Hae In plays one of the grandchildren. There is a similarity with "Something in the Rain" which came 2 years later. Quite an adorable love story. Seo Ji Hye looks more beautiful than in any other show I have seen her in. She plays a widowed grandchild in law of the family. She gives a moving performance. The various plot lines are carefully connected and quite laugh out loud funny at times especially the spoiled grand daughter in law who learns a lot from the family. The serious parts centering around the daughter and her husband are quite dramatic without being melodramatic. The main character is the daughter in law who many drama fans will find familiar. Going through menopause and dealing with her kids problems is quite illuminating. Felt like there were answers to some questions on life are in this show.
