. @USAFarmgirl ~ am not sure if the story will be to your liking but I thought you would enjoy the male lead who actually seems like a good sane person. :D it will be interesting to see how he trusts the girl. found his dad really cute on how he liked dramas. seems like us no? hahahahhah....

Graceful Family??? :blink: Right LOL more like messed up family.  You know me well and it might not be a drama I would have picked but I think the female lead is simply amazing!!!  SH isn't a chaebol spoiled brat in fact the opposite she understands money and even how the people around it work.  She sees what others don't( INJUSTICE )and her spunky nature at least to me so far is founded on her rock solid heart.  That isn't focused inward but outward because she covers up her feelings with her prickly armor in trying to throw people off.  That most likely was learned from experience and being forced as a child to survive on her own...

 

You were also right about Lawyer YD  he had me at hello and the moment he saw SH's hands shaking in the car even knowing how strong and confident she had just been.  He realized what you see isn't always all there is and I have an idea in time he will indeed see  whats hidden underneath her and most likely love it! 

 

He shows that he is a great son in watching his reaction while peeking in his fathers window while watching him clinch his back.  He understands the sacrifices that were made and wants to give back to those he loves.  He is a Knight for sure follows his heart and believes in justice, honor, respect etc...  I think he is the kind of man whom would give up his new suit and fancy job for an innocent girl he just met now sitting in jail.  Why?  Because it's the right thing and that's reason enough for someone like him...

 

Just my way out guess here but I wonder if her texts are coming from one of her brothers although  I am never right:vicx: but it's the guessing that is so much fun...  Thanks @Lmangla I'm in:blush:  

 

PS  I wonder too if the eldest Son's personality is more of an act than for real???  I think he is much smarter than he lets on...B)

Looks like the second brother is on friendly terms with GA guess she is helping him with his image and he is helping her with her fashion sense and necklace LOL....

Where do you guys watch it? It's neither on Netflix or Viu. :( 

 

The drama has been liscensed by legal streaming sites Viki and OnDemandKorea. Both Viki and OnDemandKorea have english subs. 

I'm watching it at OnDemandKorea because they are faster with the subs, and the quality of the subs is good.  Here are the links:

Viki: https://www.viki.com/tv/36722c-graceful-family

OnDemandKorea: https://www.ondemandkorea.com/elegant-family-e01.html

 

EDIT: Just found out this drama is also liscensed by K PLUS in Philippines, Malaysia, and Indonesia. https://www.kdramapal.com/singapore-based-k-plus-to-broadcast-graceful-family-in-philippines-malaysia-indonesia/

kekeke... yea after watching ep 1, I was wondering about the name but I think the writer is doing a sarcastic jibe about how so these called elites are not at all elegant and just messed up....

 

and I liked how you described seok hee -- she is not annoying like some chaebol characters. I like how the actress is showing her brattiness or her pain in restraint. and rather than angry or bitter or sarcastic, she is just wary and shrewd.

kekek.. am glad! yea, isn't it nice to have a normal guy as a male lead? :D but I like how he is shrewd and not easily intimidated. his law duels with ms han was impressive and he didn't back off even while reading his contract...

ooh, that would be interesting if the text was from one of the brothers. maybe the eldest son wan soo? he is the only one who seemed somewhat glad to see her and she also recognized because he met her when he was in new york. so he made the effort to run into her and say hello. and yea, he feels more like an act. maybe he just doesn't want to be part of the elegant family. I like the actor and am curious to see how he layers this character. but am glad that you liked the drama enough to join the ride! :D

 

can anyone read the chart to tell how the family is structured? am wondering where in the family is seok hee and whether her 2 brothers are older or younger? are they both sons of the stepmom? or are they all kids from different mothers?

I watched episode 1 and it's good. I like the female lead. She's not your typical female lead. She's strong and badass which is so refreshing. Her English is good too.

 

There are a lot of Korea actor and actress who speaked English in drama but they were so bad with unclear pronouncation and awkward accent which I thought was cringy. But Im Soo Hyang is so good so it likeable

Her English was the reason I was cringing 90% of the time - I would definitely not classify her English as very good.

 

That'd be someone like Lee Byung-Hun

I’m loving the first two episodes so far! It’s my first time seeing Im Soo Hyang act and she’s awesome, love her character! It’s nice to see Lee Jang Woo again after My Only One! The storyline is great! I wish the drama is already done airing! Can’t wait for episode three!

I saw a snippet regarding this show whilst browsing my YouTube. And my intrest piqued. I just had to check it out.

Honestly those first two episodes were super intriguing and lured me in. 

 

I find it interesting that TOP lady is trying everything to get rid of the main girl. I am suspecting she has hand in that murder of her mother. 

She better not stay long in that jail or I will riot.

Watched the first two episodes. Fast moving and liked it so far. Im Soo Hyang is really a versatile actress. She is good in any roles given and she is really beautiful too. I like the veterans and experienced casts here.

The drama is trending first in naver and daum as no. 1 on its premier. Knetz seems to like the drama and casts. I have always love the lead actress as she has the capability to get you hooked with her aura and acting. Hopefully  to see previous soompi readers from My ID is Gangnam Beauty in this forum.

watched ep 3 and it was fun. it was interesting to see how seok hee gets thrown under the bus by TOP but she is very much aware of their games. it is only yeon doe who is taken aback. he has to make a choice -- whether he is her lawyer first or TOP's employee. and by the end of the episode, he has made his choice which is is seok hee and she looks delighted that she has someone she can trust.

 

seok hee is a well drawn out character -- you could see her hands shaking while she is sitting on the way to jail but in front of yeon doo, she sits like a queen. so she is very vulnerable but manages to hide it and push bravely forward. even the way, she handled the prosecutor had so much spunk as she refused to apologize and admit to something she hasn't done. even within prison, seok hee can't help herself but defend those in her cell even though she acts tough. it was sweet how she nonchalantly asked yeon doo to look into the child of the inmate and make sure the child was okay.

 

yeon doo was also interesting in that he is not so shrewd that he automatically sees the hand of TOP like she does or how bad the prosecutor is. like she said, he is naive but this isn't his world where even family members back stab each other. where a sister-in-law can casually lay the scene for seok hee to get arrested because those were the orders. but at the same time, yeon doo wants to keep the job for his own purposes and has to choose. we don't see him struggle too much with the choice but once he does, he is smart enough to know how to tackle the problem and get seok hee out. since yoon do changed his name, am wondering if restaurant appa is his actual father. now that we have yeon doo and seok hee joining hands, it should get more entertaining.

I still don’t understand why they are so afraid of suk hee. I think it was on ep 1 at the dining table where all of them stand up when suk hee entered and when the youngest brother didn’t heard suk hee talking cause he had his ear phones on their dad yanked the phone. It is like they despised her but they still need to respect her. And I’m honestly confused on their family structure except for the youngest brother cause he’s origin was pretty obvious with the actress mom. Is suk hee the only one who can inherit everything  based on stocks because of her grandpa?

it has most definitely got to do with money but there's also something tied to the death of her mother. why would you literally banish a 15 year old child to the other side of the world? what does seok hee represent? TOP is in full speed to consolidate the shares and try get power -- who for is a bit unclear. am not sure if they are trying to make dad all powerful or the second son. whatever it is, from TOP's action, it is clear that there isn't a clear heir in charge and seok hee has enough shares to create trouble. from grandpa's supporter, it sounds like grandpa wants seok hee to take over the company.

 

am also wondering what tipped ms han to go all evil. from what the minister (who they are trying to buy over to get some land to get some shares) said, she was known for being a good judge at some point. so when did she decide that power and money is more important than following the rules?

 Omo...these two...

YD - ''Where do you want to go''

SH - ''We should go to a hotel...''

Poor YD... he was speechless...:lol:

 

I like how Yoondo and Seokhee went through this crisis.

Spoiler

Looks like the grandpa is still alive...

 

What happened 15 years ago that the leads own father was fine with sending her away and being apart till now? Why is she the heir over her oppas? Why is the TOP leader went from a good judge to the corrupt evil person she is now? Who killed the leads mom? (We know YDs mom was charged with the murder but I feel like it was either Ms Han or the step mom or even her own dad that killed her mom).

Just watched the unsubbed version of ep 4 and grandpa is awake. I think he tells them that he's giving his shares to Mo Seok Hee. Ugh I'm so impatient. I want to know what's in it for the person in charge of TOP. Like, why is she doing all of this. I also want to know when TOP first became a thing and why. Ughhh so many unanswered questions. Side note: I feel like they are going to try and kill the grandpa again. I just don't understand how anyone could be so evil. Also, is the grandpa Mo Seok Hee's dad's dad or her mother's dad.

I'm waiting for the subs. From what I understood, I believe SH is the legal heiress. The current wife is the second wife so that makes SH mom, the first wife. That's the only reason why they would be worried about the inheritance going to her. 

 

-First son: mother unknown or the mother is the second wife. It's not clear.

-Second son: second wife's son.

-SH, the only daughter: mother dead and probably the daughter of the first wife.

-Third son: Son of the actress that SH was fighting in episode 1. 

 

@USAFarmgirl Indeed, more like a messed up family lol:mrgreen::joy:.

Haven't watched episode 4 yet but I agree with @Lmangla HD is a bit naive yet I wonder if his past has a little to do with that in not being able to think the worst or even the ability to judge anyone to quickly.  That is except for SH.  LOL he goes by what he sees and he has seen that justice isn't always served and he himself has lived with the injustice of it.  His Mother was innocent he knew it and that's still a heavy weight he carries. There are still so many pieces out there that we can't place to this puzzle.

 

One thing I am curious about and that is who is pulling JG's strings she maybe head of top but she answers to someone.  The person she called after her bribing the prosecutor and she spoke with in the car.  Not to mention it was a mans voice that explained that bribe was that a clue too is it a brother or was that the prosecutor?  At first I thought it was the grandfather but that's a bust.  The stepmom might seem like a good choice she has a lot to gain and yet that seems a little to obvious.  SH's father seems a little to weak for me.  I also wonder was SH a witness against HD's mom?  It would seem his father was paid off by TOP and the man he loves may not be his father after all.

Why did they frame HD's Mom?  Why her and what promise did JG make that she broke that HD's mom was speaking about in the court room?

 

I do believe that HD will do the right thing in protecting JH.   When JG gave him the pen did it all come back then.  Or maybe he isn't as naive as I think maybe he knew more of this puzzle than he was letting on LOL.:lol:  Maybe SH isn't the only one who is able to act and show a good front...

 

 Corrections made sorry for the mistakes it's been a long day LOL...
