Storyline

The Shims would easily make any Top Five list for mutual indifference, lovelessness, and apathy within a family; the five members share absolutely no common ground. It consists of cheap, stubborn mom (MOON Hee-kyung), father driven to depression because of her (CHUN Ho-jin), their son Yong-tae (YOO Ah-in) - who thinks he was a king in his past life - and their daughter Yong-sun (HWANG Bo-ra), to whom existence itself is a mystery. Rounding out the gang is out of work comic book writer aunt Mee-kyung (KIM Hye-soo). Bound by blood ties, they live together - albeit awkwardly - under one roof. And they wonder, time and time again, why they have to live together when they don't remotely love each other... Written by CJ Entertainment

family drama with comedy elements
27 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

the plot: The Shims would be in the top five for being indifferent and apathetic for each other and in the top three for lack of love in a family. The five members of the family have absolutely no common ground. The family consists of the cheap, stubborn mom (Moon Hee-Kyeong) and the father (Cheon Ho-Jin) who is down because of her, their son Yong-tae (Yu Ah-In) who thinks he was a king in his past life and their daughter Yong-sun (Hwang Bo-Ra) to whom existence itself is a mystery, and the out of work comic book writer aunt (Kim Hye-Su). Because they share the same blood, they all live awkwardly together in one house. And they wonder time and time again…why they have to live together when they don't even love each other…

One day, the Shims come face to face with calamity. Mom falls for a guy at the karaoke shop (LEE Ki-woo), Yong-sun meets a teacher (Park Hae-Il) who is more of a mystery than she is, and Yong-tae falls in love with the worst girl (Jeong Yu-Mi) in the universe. But most shocking is Mr. Shim, who is second to none at being cautious and straitlaced, and his most obscene incident! To make matters worst, Yong-gu their playboy dog gets a pure pedigree pup pregnant and the Shims fall in a calamity that could almost make one die from embarrassment….

my thoughts:

It reminded Garsia's "City-Island" to me. All family members stay on the edge of relation, love and folly. Usual combination for such movies. And yes, this is usual family dramedy. Korean have same problems as we are. And way of settling theirs - the same. 6/10. City-Island is much better =)
