The first korean series I’ve finished after nine months of korean drama protest (last one I’ve watched is Spring Waltz). lol. And I think, starting from this series, I’ll be including names of casts and the year of broadcast. 🙂

Year of Broadcast: 2006


  • Kim Myung Min as Oh Dal Gun (Na Rim’s fake uncle)
  • Nam Sang Mi as Kim Yang Ah (Na Rim’s fake sister)
  • Im Hyun Sik as Jang Hang Gu (Na Rim’s fake grandfather)
  • Yeo Woon Kye as Park Bok Nyu (Na Rim’s fake grandmother)
  • Kang Nam Gil as Jo Gi Dong (Na Rim’s fake father)
  • Geum Bo Ra as Um Ji Sook (Na Rim’s fake mother)
  • Kim Hee Chul as Gong Min (Na Rim’s fake brother)
  • Lee Young Yoo as Baek Na Rim
  • Synopsis

    Na Rim (Lee Young Yoo), who came from a wealthy household, lost her family in a car accident when she was nine. After the accident, she suffered from amnesia so her uncle hired Oh Dal Gun (Kim Myung Min), an ex-ganster,to recreate a similar household with parents, sister, brother,grandparents and uncle in hopes that she would regain her memory.In a hurry, Oh Dal Gun ended up hiring all sorts of odd ball characters to act as members of Na Rim’s family. 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. (credits: DramaWiki)


    A drama/series for the whole family (as evident in the title).

    I’ve heard a lot of positive feedbacks and reviews about this, however the reason why I’ve decided to try this is because Hee Chul’s in it (at least I’m honest ^^).

    Bad Family’s a heartwarming story, and is full of comedic moments. But towards the end of each episode, it never fails to make me cry or at least make me shed a tear due to the touching scenes that were shown.

    However, the only thing I don’t like about Korean Dramas in general is the fact that an episode spans the length of an hour or longer, which makes me bored at some parts (this is the reason why I’ve been on Kdrama fasting for the past months), but that’s just my view.

    Back to the review. One interesting thing about this is how we’ll see different personalities in one family, as the synopsis showed, their traits and views were so conflicting, so arise the name bad family.What’s good about Bad Family is it showed different sides of each of the member. Because at the first few episodes, I was really annoyed at Grandma, Grandpa, Mother, Father, and even the sister and the Uncle, I am not being biased here, but the only okay member of the family for me at that time was Gong Min (the brother) and of course Na Rim. But yeah, as I was telling a few words back, my view of them changed, the same way as the family’s becoming a real family, I also began to love all of them. Their family would not be complete if one’s missing.

    The story’s light hearted and is centered for all group ages. It clearly deviates from the traditional “sappy and full of crying” korean dramas which is good, though it isn’t full of romantic scenes, its really okay.

    Moving on, my most favorite person in this (I think you already know who it is) is Gong Min (hee chul). At first I was weirded out by his personality in the drama, ‘coz it’s weird to see him serious and sincere but come the middle part to the last part, omg, I’ve practically told myself “Now, I’m not mistaken, it’s Hee Chul that I’m seeing (and yeah he’s an alien!)”. Next favorite person(s) is Na Rim and Yong Sam. I think it’s effective to cast cute little kids in a drama, ‘coz you’ll totally love them. 🙂

    If ever you would want to watch something interesting, try this. 😀
