  1. Good writing and good directing! I would love to write with the writer if only I knew Korean. But Mi Sun, her husband, her mother-in-law don’t have a good path of character development. It’s nearing 100 episodes and they’re still the same annoying characters. Mi sun is always acting petulant and complaining how bad her life is and keeps beating her husband. The husband has no redeeming qualities but simply a glutton who never grew up. The mother-in-law changed a bit and is not as abrasive but that character can disappear and no one will miss her. The father-in-law is simply a tired old man who has seen better days. Only Da bin has grown and has become pleasantly articulate.
    The character development and interaction of Mi hye and the publisher can improve if Mi hye will be made to dress up according to her age instead of acting like a fifteen year-old bobby soxer. She is supposed to be a successful writer, so she shouldn’t be depicted as an immature teen. It’s no wonder that the publisher can’t get totally hooked on her.
    In the end, all three daughters should be pregnant, Sun ja will have a curable TB and not cancer, In suk and the Chairman will be doting grandparents, Tae Ju and Mi ri will bring Hansung Apparel to a successful, modern 21st century institution.

  2. Mi-Ri and Tae-Ju are a perfect match: smart, good-looking, good people, and very much in love with each other. Bitterness, anger, revenge should not consume an intelligent character like Mi-Ri. The pairing of Mi-Ri and Tae-Ju should be developed in such a way that the writer should show that the younger generation is sensible enough to overcome the greed and all-consuming ambition of Mi-Ri’s birth mother and the misplaced values of Tae-Ju’s father.
    Mi-Hye, on the other hand should be developed into a maturing character, especially since she’s a writer and should act with more sense than that who mimics a giddy teenager.
    Mi-Sun should dump that husband who has no redeeming qualities at all while she herself should stop acting with self-pity.
    Sun-Ja is great – a well-developed character who can act.

  3. Ohhhh….this is one of the best drama series I’ve watched. Complete with mixed emotions – joy, sadness, anger, hope, anxiety, motherhood, rejection, first love, betrayal….you name it, this drama has all. I can’t wait for each new episode to find out what’s gonna happen next to the 3 sisters, their mums and families. Will Tae-Ju ever have Mi-Ri by his side? Will Woo-Ji open up to Mi-Hye?

  4. I started watching this before I knew you could find out ahead of time how many episodes is planned. This one has 100 plus episodes. I have learned by bad experience that ALL, bare NONE, 100-episode dramas are boring. Very. If you have ever listened to people try to tell you something, break in with back story, bog you down with minutia, wander off topic, and blather on and on until your eyes roll back in your head, then you have an idea of what you are in for with a drama that takes 50 plus hours to tell its story. Save your viewing time for better options. If it takes 50 hours to tell…it will be a dud. Count on it.
