Ha Dan Ah (Yoon Jung Hee) is very dignified and beautiful yet she also had a sad life. Dan Ah was married in her 20's, but her husband died in a car accident during their honeymoon. She will be pursued by two men, a man from a rich family, Lee Kang Suk (Park Shi Hoo) and a man who is younger than her, Jung Hyun Kyu (Lee Hyun Jin). The drama chronicles how the Ha Family upholds their aristocratic reputation.


This drama is a no joke, glorious look on family. What is family? Who is considered family?

Park Shi Hoo was friggin' amazing as the "devil" with a conscious. The man has an amazing funny bone. You couldn't help but laugh at his antics as the story progressed. He was so seriously mean at the beginning. I wasn't all that into the character of Dan Ah. Yoon Jung Hee is a great actress but she seemed to aloof as the love interest of Kang Suk. I felt she could have been more "loving". I don't know how to describe it. But then, PSH surpassed all things and made up for YJH's "non-involvement".

The most interesting love development was between Hyun Kyu and Hye Joo. Jun Hye Jin was sweet and endearing and really portrayed the "traumatized victim" really well. Her acting might have been better but I really think she was the perfect "other half" for Hyun Kyu. I really routed for this couple and thought that their love was sweet. It might not have been passionate like Dan Ah's and Kang Suk's but the relationship was just a perfect plus like a cherry on top of a fudge sundae.

For those of you who just hate long was, but wasn't. Only 54 episodes compared to some that are over 100, this one set the right pace and left you wanting to see more of Dan Ah and Kang Suk's family. Ahhhh! If only there were more episodes. Park Shi Hoo, was serious and controlled in Iljimae, but in this drama.....a whole other side of him is revealed to leave you wondering if he really portrayed Iljimae's Ja Dol.
