Song Young Dal and Jang Ok Boon have been married for many years and they have 4 children: Joon Sun, Ga Hee, Na Hee and Da Hee. Third child Na Hee is a doctor and she works with her husband Doctor Kyu Jin at the same hospital. They fell in love during their medical school days and got married, but their marriage life is not doing very well. Meanwhile, the first child Joon Sun and the second child Ga Hee are both divorcees and live with their parents. The youngest child Da Hee struggles as an intern at a company.
It's an amazing achievement that so much of this show is enjoyable, laugh out loud funny and genuinely touching and the characters are so real and likeable. This family drama centers around a family with a son and three daughters who all get divorced. The various reasons for divorce are carefully portrayed: financial (the stuntman), personality differences (the doctor), infidelity (the stewardess and the youngest child). An outstanding aspect is the 2 mothers of the families who are often hilarious both in their relationship with each other and their children is acutely observed. Liked the contrasting personalities of the 2 younger daughters, the blunt doctor and the sweet youngest daughter. Long but well written story arc about 2 siblings separated and lost to each other in child hood. The romances are very fun to watch and the viewer really can root for them. The romance of the dentist and the youngest daughter is really cute and charming. The stewardess and the judo athlete is and touching too. The problems of 2 doctors is quite moving and real. Each element is nicely handled with the resolutions to the issues satisfying and plausible. Interesting surprise villain offensive and lacking conscience. Very realistic portrayal of borrower and lender perspectives. The humor is varied and farcical at times.
The acting is terrific from the ensemble cast. Lee Min Jung handles the role of the doctor daughter well as a woman high on IQ but low on EQ. Her husband played by Lee Sang Yeob really gets the viewer's sympathy. Lee Sang Yi is charming as the dentist brother a funny and realistic brother relationship. Oh Yoon Ah is also very touching as the stewardess. Lee Cho Hee is endearing as the youngest daughter. Parasite fans will recognize Lee Jong Eun as the cute and fiesty long lost sister.
