This drama centers around 3 kids and their families. The story tells of the parents each trying to live and find happiness through the situations that plague them in 21st century South Korea.
Our main couple Lee JaeMin and his wife MiSeo work for the same company. When they find out she is expecting their second child, things go awry as they try to figure out how they will take care of him. With Miso having already taken maternity leave for their first child and being set back at work for it, they are at a loss. Things ensue when JaeMin finally decides he will take the maternity leave to take care of their son. There on, he and his wife have to deal with the backlash and consequences of that decision from their job, coworkers, and family.
So I decided to take a chance on this drama because we’ll I liked the title and it seemed like it was a story that was a long time coming. It’s not often I watch 100 episode dramas, but this one was addicting entertaining. I looked forward to it everyday and still miss it. Although it was filled with a lot of drama it was not the annoying kind that makes you want to pull your hair out. There is some thing about watching a family drama that make you feel all bubbly inside. Especially when it’s about young families with little kids. All the drama just seems so small and yet so important. It was nice to watch something in this day and age that was not focused on a broken family and people with twisted values.
It’s always a treat watching men taking care of babies. Not only because it funny watching them not know what to do but it is also nice to see how they work things out in the end. The 3 fathers were great together. The chemistry, the bad jokes, the bromance. All of it was joy to watch. I can’t even decide who was my favorite. They all had their own particular charms that you just couldn’t help but fall for them. I’m am also glad to see Han JiSang back for his second on screen roll after playing the older bother in Rosey Lovers. Man this guy is what you call a total all rounder. I can’t wait to see what he does next.
Of course the women did a great job of bringing the drama. But there wouldn’t be a show with out them. Each mother represent a different type of woman, the two income household wife, the breadwinner wife and the homemaker wife. They each had their own issues that I’m sure many people could relate to. Which is also probably why this show was such a good one.
I can’t finish talking about the women without mentioning the grandmas. I have to say that my favorite was JaeMin’s mother. That lady was a perfectly played plot device that you just couldn’t help but love. And the mother son dynamic between them was hilarious.
The children did a pretty good job with thier acting too. MinHo’s character played by Go SeungBo was so adorable. Not to mention Goo GunMin’s character Kim BangGeul, I would love to have a daughter daughter like her, so sweet and understanding. She was well played. And congratulations to GunMin for winning the 2016 best child actor award for this role. I think she definitely deserves it.
Frankly, I like the quirky main song. I cant wait to hear the full thing. The Drama had a lot of instances where they played a lot of American songs as background music in coffee shops etc. And the funny thing is that the music is always on point. That usually never happens. I was shocked every time and it gave me a good chuckle even when the scene was a serious one.

Honestly, in his day and age where all you see is stories about affairs and infidelity being relished. A story about strong family values is like a breath of fresh air. Give it watch if you feel you need one. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll get angry, you go uuuuuuuhhh. I guarantee you won’t leave disappointed.
