IN SHORT

The knee-jerk reaction would be that of blaming KBS for once again reacting hastily on the face of tepid audience feedback: 일편단심 민들레 (Single-minded Dandelion) was a relative flop so going the makjang route once again is the only way to capture the public's attention. So we get yet another secret of birth plot where kids get exchanged at birth. What's a little different here, at least as far as the TV Novel canon goes, is that the show is supposed to focus on the 70s (so the usual everyday stories of love, family and emancipation will deal more with the Park Jung-Hee regime than the immediate postwar), and will introduce the adult actors almost right away. This short introduction doesn't do much to dispel fears that the show will turn into yet another lazy period daily: characterization is flimsy at best, banking on superficial notions of class divide a lot more than the period – or common sense – would allow. Acting is not much better, with Yoon Hae-Young being painfully grating most of the time, and eternal “high society ajeosshi” Kim Eung-Sook underacting as he usually does. The kids might be cute, but it's not the kind of sense of wonder you generally direct at Korean TV's often impressive roster of child actors, it's just cuteness in a vacuum that will evaporate by Episode 6 – when Song Ha-Yoon will have to tone her overacting tendencies down considerably, otherwise she and Yoon will be hard to bear. Not as horrible as many contemporary dailies can be, but ultimately throwaway and annoyingly derivative.
