The Golden Age of Daughters-in-Law


The drama that aired in 2007 is an action drama portraying the eventful life of an extended family: a stubborn grandma, a bluffing father, a mother with long-harbored ulterior motives concealed behind her ostensible obedience, a son who has been spoiled by his mother as the only child in the family, and a daughter-in-law who makes a hasty decision to get married.

By targeting families, this drama interprets family and marriage issues in a heartwarming and hilarious way through the lives of three generations of daughters-in-law. It presents viewers with an opportunity to make their own choice between a woman who learns many good things from conservative family values instead of criticizing them and as a result becoming wiser, and a woman who makes a wrong choice and gets entangled in a turbulent family relationship but receives a chance to deny reality and chooses her own path.

Kim Ji Hoon plays the role of Lee Bok Soo, a son of a family owning a famous pig-trotter restaurant and Mi-jin’s husband. Ji-hoon graduated from Seoul National University and has a prestigious job at the Yujin Group.

Handsome, well-shaped, smart and having a well-paid job, he is an object of desire of many girls. But even he has a dilemma: his tumultuous family. Having no intention whatsoever to get married, he one day meets a cute girl named Mi-jin and ties the knot. But their marital life faces numerous obstacles.

You can see Kim Ji Hoon in the 1st episode in the scene where he is jogging and he looks like such a good runner.


Goddess of Marriage


A drama about four women in different stages of marriage with different values ​​and philosophies of love and conflicts finding the true meaning and the importance of marriage through the story.

Song Ji Hye (Nam Sang Mi), an assertive radio writer, dreams of an ideal love but finds herself embroiled in a love triangle between two good men, architect Kim Hyun Woo (Lee Sang Woo) and prosecutor Kang Tae Wook (Kim Ji Hoon). Hong Hye Jung (Lee Tae Ran) is a mother of two who used to work as a television announcer and is married to Tae Wook’s older brother (Kim Jung Tae) and must always maintain the refined appearances expected of a Cheongdam-dong daughter-in-law.

Song Ji Sun (Jo Min Soo) is Ji Hye’s older sister and is a supermom to three kids who rule over her meek husband (Kwon Hae Hyo). Kwon Eun Hee (Jang Young Nam) also is a wife and mother who suddenly discovers that her husband (Jang Hyun Sung) is cheating on her.

Song Ji Hye has been dating Tae Wook for many years but she doesn’t love him, she doesn’t seem to share any interest with him, he lies to her about being rich and also doesn’t seem to respect her opinions about anything. Instead, she marries him and is forced into hellish servitude by her mother-in-law.


Jang Bo-ri is Here!

Jang Bo Ri (Oh Yeon Seo) is the granddaughter of a famous hanbok artisan while her mother and aunt-in-law are two of the potential heirs to the business. An accident causes her to be stranded in a rural area of Korea where she is found and unofficially adopted by a woman who has an ungrateful daughter of her own (Lee Yoo Ri).
As a result, the heroine’s life changes completely as she suffers through the constant lies and deceit of everyone around her. And stories from the male side Lee Jae Hwa (Kim Ji Hoon) and Lee Jae Hee (Oh Chang Suk) are half-brothers, sharing the same father. Jae Hwa falls in love with Jang Bo Ri, while Jae Hee will fall for Min Jung.
The main point of this drama is a life switch between two girls. What’s surprising here is that the majority of the characters are very “realistic” in a sense: they are not that exaggerated and dramatic. You can find people like this around you in real life: they have both flaws and redeeming qualities.
The writers sprinkled the drama with some K-Drama staples here and there to make it more entertaining, most of it revolving around Yeon Min Jung. In this drama, you will also learn some interesting facts about hanboks, which are pretty traditional Korean clothes.

The Rich Son


This is a TV series that shows that this world is worth living as long as you have the courage and true love, through an immature rich kid and an innocent girl that struggle to make money, starting from the bottom.

Lee Gwang Jae (Kim Ji Hoon) is a rich boy that inherits a huge amount of debt and struggles to pay it back to save his father’s reputation. By his side is Kim Young Ha (Kim Joo-Hyun), a dauntless girl who fully supports him.

If you are looking for something lightweight or a good in-between filler drama this may be a good choice. A lovely drama that uses standard tropes but is well executed; delivering both very realistically funny and serious moments. Excellent acting, dialogue, and the overall script make this series one of the best daily dramas I have seen in a long time.


Sweet Stranger and Me


Hong Na-ri (Soo-ae) works as a flight attendant. Her mother passed away 10 months ago and she doesn’t have any other immediate family members. Hong Na-ri returns to her hometown to visit her mother’s grave. There, she sees a young man at her mother’s grave.

The man, Go Nan-gil (Kim Young-kwang), introduces himself as her father. Before Hong Na-ri’s mother died, she married Go Nan-gil. He now lives at her mother’s house and runs the small dumpling restaurant that her mother ran.

In this drama, Kim Ji Hoon plays the role of Jo Dong-jin who is Na-ri’s insecure boyfriend, who cheats on her with Yeo-joo. Although he is currently in a relationship with Yeo-Joo, he is still unsure about his decision to leave Hong Na-ri.

Flower Boy Next Door

Her comfortable and peaceful life is shattered, when a group of handsome neighbors appears at her door.

Video game designer Enrique Keum (Yoon Si-yoon) just came to Korea from Spain. He lives with Tae-joon. Oh Jin-rok (Kim Ji-hoon) lives in apartment #401 with his assistant Dong-hoon (Ko Gyung-pyo).
