Summary on Drama wiki:

This drama shows how devastating and hurtful it can be for a woman to live with a boyfriend before marriage and not end up tying a knot with him. Korea has the second highest divorce rate in the world as more and more families become ruined -- mainly because one of the spouses cheats. To make things worse, the mass media continues to champion premarital cohabitation as a choice that unmarried couples are free to make. Terms of Endearment depicts today's harsh reality and once again reminds us of the sacred meaning of marriage and the importance of family. (KBS)

Keum-pa's married life is quite enviable on the surface: her husband is a lawyer, and they have a child. But in reality, she is one of the unhappiest women. Her husband cheats on her with his female coworker, and Keum-pa doesn’t have courage to divorce him even though she knows about her husband’s betrayal. One day, she runs into her elementary school boyfriend, her first love, through online chatting. The two become close, and Keum-pa even finds spiritual consolation in him. But eventually Keum-pa's husband learns about their precarious relationship, and Keum-pa ends up divorcing her husband.

Eun-pa is a protagonist of a tragic life. Since childhood, she has been treated coldly by her mother, who always compared her with her older sisters. While in college, Eun-pa falls in love with Jun-sung, who was very popular with girls. Eventually, Jun-sung moves in with Eun-pa, who lies to her mother that she will live with one of her college friends. Although she is scared that her family may find out that she is living with a boyfriend, Eun-pa's firmly believes that Jun-sung will marry her one day, and does her best to become a caring girlfriend to him.

Yun-taek once dreamed of becoming an ethics teacher. He had to take a leave from college because he didn't have money, and went to the army. He is vibrant and witty, and has a good sense of humor, but on the other hand he is also very prudent, gentle and warm-hearted. As soon as he becomes discharged from the army, he embarks on looking for Eun-pa, his first love, but to no avail. One day, he suddenly meets Eun-pa at a nightclub where he works as a waiter in order to earn money and go back to college. (credit:KBS)

This is my favorite drama of all time. I have watched it 7 times, as well as my sister and mom. Even my husband was curious about it and enjoys it here and there. It's a must-watch drama. Period.

yea im watching it on kbs world too! but it gets really annoying b/c i want to watch more but i can't, and have to wait for the next week.

it kind of frustrates me how jangsoo is making SUCH a big deal out of eunpa's past, you can say yea in korean society its a big deal and all but still he practically was cheating on her with another woman in front of her. and i think he was being a plain of mean, rude, selfish, arrogant butthole but hey he's still really muh seh suh and im sure he'll forgive her soon.

i realized that no ones really that bad girl or good girl in this drama, b/c eunpa's not really good/nice either.


love this drama though, despite my frustrations. haha
