A dramatic reversal in this drama occurs when, for the husband, his forgotten family and for the wife, her in-laws, comprising her husband's grandmother, parents-in-law and three sisters-in-law, appeared suddenly before them.

Hong Yun-hi, the wife and the protagonist in this drama, is a woman who had grown up in a family in tussles everyday due to conflicts between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law.

Before her wedding, she didn't want to marry as she did not want to have another family, the husband's family. At last she encountered a perfectly promising man who was adopted into a family of a Korean businessman in the U.S., graduated from Johns Hopkins University medical school and is now working at a general hospital in Seoul.

He is well-mannered, gentle and sweet and has a sense of humor. All her friends envied her for the smart man, saying that she had good fortune in her later days.

Furthermore, the husband's house is far off in New York and the parents-in-law, who brought five adopted sons in addition to the husband, are known to be on the journey in a remote area and hardly communicated with the family.

In such a condition, the couple could have a dreamlike honeymoon.

By a strange twist of a fate, however, an incident broke out. The husband's family has been found! Unbelievably, the husband's house is just in front of the wife's house. The next-door neighbors have always been in quarrels with her on problems involving waste disposal, parking and stairs cleaning.

It was quite exciting news to appear in the newspaper. (Actually several reporters came to the wife to have interviews, but the wife denied.)

The wife didn't always see eye to eye with the people, who are the husband's family and now her own family, on too many issues.

The husband's grandmother is fastidious, robust and suspicious, the mother-in-law meddlesome and the sister-in-laws have foul tempers.

She doesn't want to live like her mother, but she now may have to go through a more hard life than her mother. She regretted she did not stop her husband from moving to this village shortly after their wedding.

However, looking at the sleeping husband, who has been living for more than 30 years without knowing even the faces of his biological parents, she feels compassion for him and changes her mind.

But the life with the husband's parents and in-laws is wearisome.

This program features raucous and cheerful stories about an unordinary and peculiar family-making of a couple.

Kim Nam-joo’s new work promises to resonate with modern-day women

By Jean Oh (oh_jean@heraldm.com) koreaherald.com

Actress plays career woman who dreads mother-in-law and must face her fears

Weekend family dramas are an iconic fixture of South Korean television.

At times laugh-out-loud funny or downright melodramatic, these twice-a-week installments voice the underlying concerns we face on a day-to-day basis, acting as companion and cathartic outlet for our anxieties, generally through the lens of an epic, ginormous extended family.

At first glance, the set-up might appear incredibly archaic, impervious to change. After all, how many urban-bound families can still afford to live together in a sprawling hanok-style house?

Yet, the truth is that though the household setting itself may have changed over time, the basic fears, conflicts and happiness filling it have not, which is why these weekend series tend to reel in top viewer ratings and attract legions of devoted viewers.

KBS has long held onto a strong track record in the realm of weekend family fare and its newest series, “You Tumbled Into My Life,” bears the trappings of yet another success.

Though this is her first family drama, scriptwriter Park Ji-eun is well-versed in whipping out dialogue that resonates with modern-day women, as proven with her tongue-in-cheek, home run series, “My Wife is a Superwoman.”

Actress Kim Nam-joo was point-on in the show, which inevitably led to the teaming up of the two again for the less successful spin-off, “Queen of Reversal.”

Though Kim balks at the thought of partnering up again for a fourth work (“Again? I don’t think viewers will like it,” was her take on the proposal), the two are attempting the marital genre for a third, and, possibly, final time.

In the upcoming series, the heroine, played by Kim, is a successful drama production company producer who marries an orphaned doctor (veteran actor Yu Jun-sang) and thereby acquires the supposed, ultimate career woman’s dream ― accomplished husband minus the in-laws.

Her marital bliss is shattered when her husband finds his birth parents and she realizes she has married more than she has bargained for. Once again, the stage is set for a butting of the heads between daughter-and-mother-in-law.

As with most standard family dramas, this allows viewers a full view of both the wife’s and husband’s siblings’ and parents’ lives, giving the writer a wide expanse of characters to work with.

Scriptwriter Park’s creative prowess will be put to the test with a 19-member ensemble that features characters running the gauntlet from playboy (CNBLUE’s Kang Min-hyuk), rich rogue (“Wild Romance” actor Lee Hee-joon) to a cosmetic surgery employee looking for perks on the job (“Baby-faced Beauty” actress Oh Yeon-seo).

With so many characters to flesh out, Park could fall prey to stereotypes especially when dealing with such sensitive subject matter as cosmetic surgery, but Oh assured reporters that her role will not feed into negative stereotypes about the practice at the drama’s press conference Tuesday.

At the press event, “You Tumbled Into My Life” director Kim Hyung-suk voiced confidence in both the crew and ensemble to keep the narrative from falling flat.

“What differentiates our drama from other series is that it reveals a lot from the get-go,” said Kim.

With each episode moving the plot forward quickly, “it will be fun to watch at every turn,” he added.

Furthermore, the new series also promises to shy away from trying to present neatly packaged solutions to the challenges of married life.

According to actress Kim, her role does not seek to solve concerns regarding the daughter-and-mother-in-law relationship so much as portray and represent them.

“Women can really relate to it,” Kim, 40, said.

“Even if you have stellar in-laws that are very good to you it is still stressful,” Kim, who is married to actor Kim Seung-woo, admitted that even she is not exempt from a little in-law-related anxiety.

“I really relate to this role,” she said, stressing that the script takes a comedic approach to the trials and tribulations of her character, affording viewers the opportunity to find the humor in stressful situations.

“One of scriptwriter Park’s strong points is that she is able to take a double-edged approach to her subject matter,” Kim elaborated. “The tone is both comical and serious, without getting too skewed to one side.”

“You Tumbled Into My Life” starts airing Saturdays and Sundays at 7:55 p.m. on KBS 2 TV Feb. 25.

Kim Nam Joo Goes On Blind Date in 'My Husband Got A Family'

Writer: TV Report Copyright ⓒ KBS & KBSi

Actress Kim Nam Joo will become a "queen of blind dates" in the KBS 2TV new weekend drama "My Husband Got A Family" (written by Park Ji Eun and directed by Kim Hyung Seok) that will air its first episode on February 25. Kim Nam Joo will play a passionate and capable career woman named Cha Yoon Hee. Cha Yoon Hee is enthusiastic in her work, but she has already announced that she will not marry a man unless he has no family members. She has come to have this thought because of her mother and her female friends who have been going through difficulties due to their husbands' family members. So she goes on blind date hundreds of times to find her Mr.Right who is a capable orphan who has no family.


Kim Nam Joo attracted attention with her perfect acting while playing the old single woman Cha Yoon Hee on blind dates. She came to her blind dates with an innocent appearance, but suddenly presented daring and cunning facial expressions. She also presented cute and pretty facial expressions depending on her partners during the blind dates. Her various appearances with completely different looks reportedly drew a laugh on the film set.

In particular, Kim Nam Joo's stylish and neat fashion attracted attention. Kim brought several costumes to a cafe on February 7 to film the scene in which she has to come to several blind dates with different partners. She brought those different costumes to film those scenes on the same day. Her series of blind dates to find her perfect husband in the drama is raising curiosity how her appearance will be portrayed and how she will finally meet her ideal man Yoo Joon Sang in the drama.

The production staff member said, "It will be a story that any single woman who has been dreaming about her perfect man will easily sympathize with, and Kim Nam Joo's perfect acting will add more fun to the story. I want you to pay attention to 'My Husband Got A Family.'" Writer Park Ji Eun, who wrote the dramas "Butcher Oh Soo Jeong," "My Wife Is A Superwoman," and "Queen of Reversals," and director Kim Hyung Seok, who produced the drama special "Stone" and "Youngdeok Women' Ssireum Team" and the drama "Matchmaker's Lover" will produce the drama together. "My Husband Got A Family" will air its first episode on February 25 at 7:55pm as a follow-up drama to "Ojakgyo Family."

Kim Nam Joo and Yoo Joon Sang Kiss in 'My Husband Got A Family'

Writer: KBS Media Park Jae Hwan News Article Copyright ⓒ KBS & KBSi

The married couple Kim Nam Joo and Yoo Joon Sang in the KBS drama "My Husband Got A Family" (written by Park Ji Eun, directed by Kim Hyung Seok, and produced by Logos Film) presented a romantic kiss scene under a streetlight, which drew attention. Kim Nam Joo and Yoo Joon Sang will make a transformation in the new drama by playing a passionate and capable career woman named Cha Yoon Hee and a surgeon in a general hospital named Bang Gui Nam, respectively. Kim and Yoo will play newly married couple and present sweet and romantic scenes in a friendly atmosphere. In particular, Yoo Joon Sang's romantic acting to present his affection towards Kim Nam Joo appears very realistic. And as time goes by, the two actors are becoming closer and successfully presenting natural romantic acting.


Kim and Yoo go out very late at night and spend a sweet moment in a street restaurant while having a date, and the perfect husband is making food for his wife who holds her husband from behind, which looks like a typical newly married couple. Their kiss scene under the streetlight was reportedly filmed in a friendly atmosphere thanks to the two actor's excellent harmony while acting.

The kiss scene was filmed at a backstreet of a residential area in Seoul on February 18. Kim Nam Joo and Yoo Joon Sang took a walk around the neighborhood and went back home together. Their appearance seems to be that of friendly married couple. Despite the cold weather and below zero temperatures, the two actors presented natural acting. They kissed on an ordinary backstreet, but their kiss scene looked more romantic than any other kiss scene. In particular, the two actors looked into each other's eyes and kissed while leaning on a lamp post. Actress Yoon Yeo Jeong, who plays Um Cheong Ae in the drama as a landlord, witnessed their kiss on the street and ran away in surprise, which drew a laugh. Um Cheong Ae (Yoon Yeo Jeong) and Bang Gui Nam (Yoo Joon Sang) meet as a landlord and a tenant, but actually they are a mother and son who were separated 30 years ago. Their fateful relationship will be unveiled soon and Um Cheong Ae and Cha Yoon Hee (Kim Nam Joo) will have a war of nerves, which will become one of the exciting and funny elements of the drama.


A production staff member said, "Kim Nam Joo and Yoo Joon Sang are presenting natural acting as if they were a real couple, and their perfect acting is creating an exciting atmosphere on the film set. As actors and staff members are filming this drama with excellent harmony, we are anticipating presenting a good drama to viewers."

In addition, "My Husband Got A Family" is a story of career woman Cha Yoon Hee, who has wanted to marry an orphan to avoid conflict with the husband's family members and finally married perfect surgeon Bang Gui Nam (Yoo Joon Sang), and she will have unexpected episodes with the her husband’s new family members.

Writer Park Ji Eun, who wrote the dramas "Butcher Oh Soo Jeong," "My Wife Is A Superwoman," and "Queen of Reversals," and director Kim Hyung Seok, who produced the drama special "Stone" and "Youngdeok Women' Ssireum Team" and the drama "Matchmaker's Lover," will produce the drama together. "My Husband Got A Family" aired its first episode on February 25 at 7:55pm.

New Weekend Drama Off to Promising Start

Writer: KBS Media Park Jae-hwan Copyright ⓒ KBS & KBS Media

The new KBS2 weekend drama “My Husband Got a Family” has begun with an auspicious start, with viewer ratings of some 30 percent only after two episodes were aired. Starring Kim Nam-joo and Yoo Joon-sang along with other renowned veteran actors, the drama has drawn attention with down-to-earth storylines, causing viewers to easily sympathize with its characters.


Among them are Cha Yun-hui (Kim Nam-joo), a producer working in a film production company who did not want to get married until she found a man without a family so that she would not have any in-laws to cause trouble -- and she has found one: a Korean-American adoptee who is a doctor; and Eom Cheong-ae (Yoon Yeo-jeong), a housewife who has to live with her difficult mother-in-law for over 30 years.

One particular draw of the show is vivid dialogue that strikes a chord with viewers. Here are some of them featured in the first two episodes that aired on February 24 and 25.


▶ In the first episode

Cha Yun-hui says to herself when she hears her friends complain about their in-laws, “What have I always said to you? I would rather not marry than deal with in-laws. I have never even had coffee with a man who has to take care of his parents as a responsible son or has many brothers or sisters.”

Cha Yun-hui answers when asked by an actress if she is happy to be married, “It depends on who you marry. You should not just fall for a man who is rich and nice to you but you have to see his family. Marriage is not just a union of a man and woman but of the two entire families.”

A teacher of a singing class for middle-aged women that Eom Cheong-ae attends tells his class, “You are suffering menopausal symptoms. You feel depressed. You are sad because even an operation would not make your wrinkled neck better. You are tired of the gray hair that doesn’t go away no matter how many times you dye it. Your child is no longer obedient and dear to you, and your aging husband is becoming a burden to you as he spends more time at home and bothers you. But you are not the only one. Everybody has the same problems, because that’s the way life is. So just laugh. You don’t laugh because you are happy, but you are happy because you laugh.”

Cha Yun-hui tells her landlord when the landlord raised her lease deposits, “What? You need to raise the lease deposits by 100 million won (100,000 dollars) at once? You must be kidding. I know the lease deposits are skyrocketing, but it seems it’s way too much. Please show me some consideration and lower the increase to some extent.”

Cha Yun-hui tells her husband on their way to look for a new house, “How come house leases can be so exorbitant? I heard it’s skyrocketing, but didn’t expect it has become out of control. I’m not renting a castle or a penthouse, am I?”


▶ In the second episode

Eom Yi-sook (Yoo Ji-in) tells her sister Eom Sam-sook (Yang Hee-kyung) when she asks her to buy a fur coat, “Do you know how many animals have to be killed to produce a fur coat? It’s 70. And do you have any idea how miserably they die? You should know good consumerism is a trend these days.”

Bang Jeong-bae (Kim Sang-ho) tells his wife when they see household items Cha Yun-hui has disposed of, “Benjamin Franklin said that ‘Beware of little expenses. A small leak will sink a great ship.’ The new neighbor [Yun-hui] proves Franklin is right. She needs to keep an eye on little expenses; otherwise, she will see a small leak sink her ship.”

A staffer at the production company said that the cast’s realistic performances make the dialogue more engaging and impressive. Since the show has just started, it will become more entertaining with time, amid continuous support from viewers, he added.

“My Husband Got a Family” airs on Saturdays and Sundays at 7:55 p.m. on KBS2.

I am so excited but scared to watch this drama. I love the chemistry between the leads but it's a weekend drama. I just had bad luck with that. I will give it a chance though. If you want to see it with subtitles you can on ONAIRTV but you have to sign up for an account and just put the subtitles as english. I love doing it so far for all the currently airing drama's.Yay another good show has landed! KBS is on fire with their hits.
