Bad Family/ Fake Family Service (4.5)

I dont have high expectation for this drama, and it surprise me with its light hearted comedy, right-dose of sentimentality and the cuteness of Kim Myung Min and Nam Sang Mi together (I wasnt impressed with Nam Sang Mi in Time Between Wolf and Dog)

What constitutes a family? What makes a family? To be a family do we really need to share the same bloodline? Same DNA? Those who are adopted and feels left out because they dont share the genes with their parents should watch this. We dont need blood ties to be bonded as family, as long as we take each other for what they are, cared for them, be there in happiness and in misery...haha..easy for me to say, I only know life from my limited world-scope and tv.... But seriously, this drama is really nice ^_^

Baek Na Rim (Lee Young Yoo) a nine year old girl, just lost all her immediate family in a car accident. The only family she had left was her distant uncle. She suffered shocked and amnesia after the accident, and her uncle in an effort to regain her memory hired Oh Dal Gun (Kim Myung Min), an ex-ganster,to recreate a similar household with parents, sister, brother,grandparents and uncle.I He also suspected foul play in the accident that killed all the family and only Na Rim had the answer. In a hurry, Dal Gun ended up hiring all sorts of odd ball characters to act as members of Na Rim's family, most of them those who owed him money and those he threatened them to comply with his wish. None got along at the start and hilarious situation arose when all members tried to cope in front of the little girl and also to protect her from the one who caused her family's accident. Eventually they started to behave like a real family and cared for each other, proving that blood relation is not as important as a caring heart.
I laugh many times especially with Dal Gun's antics. He fall in love with Kim Yang Ah (Nam Sang Mi) who was supposed to be his niece. Then there is Ha Bu Kyung (Hyun Young) who fall in love with Dal Gun despite his brashness and rudeness. Wonder if Hyun Young nasal voice is real or is it just her on-screen voice...

Kim Myung Min is Oh Dal Gun (Na Rim's fake uncle)
Nam Sang Mi is Kim Yang Ah (Na Rim's fake sister)
Yim Hyun Sik is Jang Hang Gu (Na Rim's fake grandfather)
Yeo Woon Kye is Park Bok Nyu (Na Rim's fake grandmother)
Kang Nam Gil is Jo Gi Dong (Na Rim's fake father)
Geum Bo Ra is Um Ji Sook (Na Rim's fake mother)
Kim Hee Chul is Gong Min (Na Rim's fake brother)
Hyun Young is Ha Bu Kyung (Niece of man that caused accident)
Park Jin Woo is Ha Tae Kyung (Son of man that caused accident)
Lee Young Yoo is Baek Na Rim

Isn't she 'cu-tae'? She remind me of Shark -when she was a little girl of course...
