The oldest brother is getting on in years and seems to be making head-way with his girlfriend, until on old girlfriend sends a surprise his way; the second oldest has a drunken one-night-stand with a colleague, knocks her up, and they get married; the third one is a cop who falls in love with…oh, just watch it, it’s wonderful, not just because of the romance, but because these goofballs are such family, bickering and wrestling one moment, and bonding over drinks the next.

Surprisingly, I found myslef waiting for this drama to start when Mask went a little bit downhill from episode 16 onward so I watched it with a really high expectations. It’s as addicitive as Mask at its earliest, but I hope it doesn’t become sloppy mid-run. But I agree, the fairytale premise is what mostly lured me, I really hope it doesn’t drag into 20-episodes, because approx 1 out of 100 dramas REALLY have material to air for so long, most of them just slow down and stagnate, just to finish with disappointing ending. But sometimes, we do get dramas who keep the viewers on the edge and thrill all the way.
