On August 21, 2019, the press conference of ‘Graceful Family was held. All of the drama series such as Lee Jang-woo, Lim Soo-hyang, Bae Jong-ok, Lee Kyu-han, Kim Jin-woo, and Gong Hyun-joo, and others attended the press conference.


At the press conference, Lee Jang-woo expressed, I liked the subject. I chose it because I thought a drama about chaebols who get into a lot of situations and accidents would be stimulating. It’s also fun if you watch the simple love stories in there too.”

During the press conference, Lim Soo-hyang said, “When we started filming, we said, ‘If the viewership rating achieves 3%, please reward us with a vacation’. But the film crew said that they would give it to us if the rating reached 5%. I can’t believe that we received such great affection.”


She then continued, “Viewers constantly showed their love for the drama and recommended the drama to others. When looking at the first episode’s rating of 2.7% and the present one of 5%, I feel so surprised and miraculous. I’m looking forward to the reward vacation. I worked very hard on the shooting and sweated during the hot summer, so I want to play water games.”

5 Reasons Why You Should Watch Graceful Family

  • A marvelous production team and top actors and actresses lineup

The director of the hit drama “Graceful Family” is Director Han Chul-soo, captivating with his works such as MBC’s “My Little Baby,” and screenwriter Kwon Min-soo, who present gentle expressions in dramas such as KBS’s “The Blade and Petal.” Combined with the fantastic and top lineup that consists of Lim Soo-hyang, Lee Jang-woo, Bae Jong-ok, and more, the drama has gained the highest rating on MBN and positive critics from the audience.

  • A completely different concept

“Graceful Family” is the first series in South Korean drama that explores the “owner risk management team” that seeks to erase the ugly weaknesses or flow and protect the impenetrable fortress that is the world of conglomerates. The “elimination experts” demonstrate the extraordinary efficacy in using methods such as legal loopholes, violence, illegal surveillance, and falsifying comments to eliminate the actions of conglomerate families. When people have recently become interested in the concept of “owner risk,” this drama will surely provide fresh insights and peculiar mysteries.


Graceful Family also raised the issue of real marriage but is still considered taboo in society, such as marriage without sex between Wan-joon (Cheol-hee’s son from the second wife) with Soo-jin. In this drama, marriage without sex is not portrayed as a disgrace and or told through rumors. The characters involved in discussing it openly without saying this is a secret that must be buried. We are also given an overview of the illegal practice of beauty clinics in Korea, namely the transfer of blood from young people to older adults. The goal is to look young.

  • A fight for “Pandora’s box.”

The combination of the strong-willed heiress Mo Seok-hee and resilient lawyer Heo Yoon-do shows a refreshing “battle for the truth” as they go up against the elite’s world. They also face the head of MC Group’s Owner Risk Management Team, Han Je-gook, in a charismatic competition. “Graceful Family” showcase the thrilling fight as both sides move towards opening the deeply hidden Pandora’s box of MC Group.

  • Roaring romance

Unlike the mainstream drama series, “Graceful Family” is not a soft and sad romance melodrama. This is a cruel “roaring romance” between hard-headed and hot-tempered Mo Seok-hee, who is not afraid to act courageously, and honest lawyer Heo Yoon-do, who can empathize with people’s pain and not afraid to say what is on his mind. There will be no time to get bored with this couple, and because “Graceful Family” is Lim Soo-hyang and Lee Jang-woo’s first drama reunion in eight years, it will be a love story and a search for truth built on fun chemistry.

  • No empty characters

The characters of “Graceful Family” have solid stories and motivations, and the drama has earned praise for its dynamic characteristics. One of the plus points of this drama is that there are many characters that each have an explanation. There is almost no character with unclear background. People will get a good picture of each character slowly, episode by episode.

Despite being banished to the United States after her mother’s death 15 years ago, Mo Suk-hee survives and doesn’t fall into despair. She learns to take action, and bravely goes up against a prosecutor. Heo Yoon-do can choose justice in front of a large sum of money because he dreamt of becoming a lawyer after witnessing his father Heo Jang-soo fall apart due to injustice. Han Jae-gook can commit illegal acts to cover up the scandalous exploits of chaebols because she believes that her actions protect the hundreds and thousands of people who live off of chaebols.
