I finally watched the first EP. Too much information but it's a good start. So let's get this straight, this family is nuts lol. I can't remember their names so I will just use their titles. Chairman, legal wife, 2 sons and a daughter. The first son is married and at the same time cheating but his dear wife doesn't care one bit about it lol. I'm already liking her attitude especially when she came to pick up her so called husband from the hotel room with an ice bucket lol:D.The second son is married to the FL but the marriage is absolutely not good. Why do I have a feeling he abuses her with the way she reacts to him? And ohh it seems like he is the illegitimate son of the chairman with the way dear mommy was laughing like a lunatic when he was not found yet. The daughter is a lawyer, a sunbae to the ML and has feelings for him. Now I wonder who the ML will get married to? The actress or the lawyer?. With the way the EP ended, there is some history between the ML and FL. There is no way they can kiss like that without them knowing each other. The second son didn't look surprised at all. Now the main question is how the second son ends up dead and who kills him? Everyone is a suspect.

Is anybody watching this? 


I am.....temporarily.  I'll watch another episode or two but I'm not convinced that I want to see this because I don't like Chaebol makjang.


The production values are really high on this.  It was beautifully filmed.  And the color-blocking in the the costumes and sets are really stunning.  The stunt work was also very good.


Problem:  the story is not cohesive.  Within the first ten minutes, we switched from scene to scene without a bridge from one to the other.  It was like four or five different stories, and I found that a little confusing and distracting--they didn't mesh at all.




.....One thing did make me laugh but it was not meant to be funny:  the White Truck of Doom was carrying a load of glass bottles.  Do they even put cola in glass bottles anymore?  Any why is the Truck of Doom always white?  :P

Thought the first episode was interesting - will definitely continue watching


Would agree that the editing in the first ep was a bit jarring as they were trying to establish a lot of storylines and characters. Only having one episode to open sucks in that regard as if they did have an episode saturday and sunday (how come they didn't) I would probably have watched them back to back (or closer together) and that would have made an info dump much easier to bare compared to to still being very confused for a week
