A relatable drama for sisters all around the world
Sisters are like a free gift from God. Though they might be our most despised enemies at times, but it is without a doubt that we consider them our most reliable best friends to whom we tell our worries, secrets to and seek advices from. The bond between sisters can never break even after many misunderstandings. This drama depicts the dynamics between the family’s three sisters, Byun Hye Young, (Lee Yu Ri) Byun Mi Young, (Jung So Min) and Byun Ra Young (Ryu Hwa Young), especially during the scenes where they’ve got each other’s backs.
Lee Joon plays an arrogant and silly role
The formerly harmonious house of the Byun family is suddenly in an uproar after Ahn Jong Hee (Lee Joon) turns up in their household claiming that he is the family’s long lost son. Despite the family’s adamant objections to his ridiculous claim, he still manages to make a spot for himself in the crowded family’s humble abode. But all this was a ruse and a tactic for him to be able to experience what having a father is like, to help him prepare for a role. Hilarious, right? But the viewers’ hearts would surely warm up to him once they discover his childish tendencies and immatureness which would all clue in to what he really wants – to belong.
