SYNOPSIS

This drama is about entangled lives of four women, a stepmother and daughter of a small diner and another stepmother and daughter of a nation-wide food service company, CE Group. These four women’s lives start to be entangled with a suspicious hit-and-run of a man who then is blamed for embezzlement enrages of CE Group while he in coma from the accident. Without any money or connections, the man’s widow goes on a crusade to prove her husband’s innocence and many obstacles and hardships are encountered along her arduous journey. A suspenseful plot and a story about stepmothers and daughters bring up the rear to present a heartwarming drama to viewers. [MBC Global Media]

IN SHORT

Typical 권선징악 (good prevails over evil) finale to yet another makjang extravaganza, erasing the villain’s previous sins with an all too convenient last minute malady, and leading to a forced happy ending. I would have called this an egregious waste of Oh Ji-Eun’s talents (or at least her consistent effort which has helped her improve over the last few years), but she seemed to just take it easy and go with the flow for the last few months, frequently getting upstaged by Cha Hwa-Yeon (which is no surprise) but also Yoo Ho-Rin. Particularly (and unintentionally) hilarious is one of the last scenes on the rooftop, where Gi Tae-Young and Yeon Jun-Seok try to convince Cha Hwa-Yeon not to fall to her demise simply by throwing stiff and overwrought platitudes at her, with the facial expression of someone trying to sell her used vacuum cleaners. Now that’s a fitting coda to the show...
