Very very good drama! Choi Ji Woo did an amazing job! I'm surprised she didn't get an award for this role...
The kids also played so good!

The ending was touching!

The scene where she was trying to smile for the first time since her family was alive proved what a great actress she is. The way she was forcing herself at first, then tears flowing on her face and at last a wide smile... So touching.

The reason why I'm not giving this drama 5/5 is because the plot could have had more suspense but it wasn't boring at all. The drama was so interesting through 20 episodes! Recommended.

awesome underrated drama!!! it was shadowed by other dramas at the same time slot :(

Choi Ji Woo did an amazing job in this drama and the male lead too and most of all the kids!! they were awesome their acting is better than some adult actors/actresses!! xD

anyway if you want to watch a unique kdrama with a family theme this is ideal for you...

Until ep. 8. I was not that impressed... I watched it, becouse it was different, and I was curious what will come out of this.
But to tell the truth I was not that invested in it... I couldn't really care for all the kids, their problemes felt a bit forced... And the father! I was just: Oh, go to hell already! Annoying! You not ready for being a father? Sorry, look around! You bacame one 17 years ago! And after that, YOU were the one who made THREE more kids...

On the funny side: Every time he was going: Yun Song Hwa-ssi! I was like: Oh, not that shit again! He was obsessed with a woman with a (near)same name before, and look what that brought him to! :D Well, all I was hearing: Yun Seo Hwa, Yun Seo Hwa! :D I cound not take it seriously after that...
Sorry, my fault... :D

And now, we are at the point (from ep. 9...) where we can go to the story of the housekeeper...
I waited reeeeaaaally long for that!!!
And it did get better!
O.K. Maybe I am biased... I did not even know Song Jong Ho will appear on this! (Lucky me! If I had known, I wouldn't be this patient with the show! I would have been, like: Oh, come on! Faster! Faster! To the part when he will appear!)
Well, he can do anything! I will watch it willingly, with an imbecilic smile on my face...

I will put away the jokes!
The show really did become a little bit more interesting. Well, at least it has a potential now, not being only the drama where the sad (strange?) housekeeper will make the sad kids smile again, and the kids in return will do the same for her, and then they will become oooone biiiiiig haaaappy family!

I am really curious what will happen now! Shame on you show, for waiting for 10 long episodes to do that!
