This is a story of a family on a farm named Ojakgyo. The family consist of a grandmother, parents, and four brothers. Hwang Chang-Sik (Baek Il-Seob) is the father of the family and he runs the Ojakgyo farm. The grandmother (Kim Yong-Rim) and mother (Kim Ja-Ok) are loving people. Eldest son Tae-Sik (Jung Woong-In) works as a physical therapist. He is almost 40-years-old, but still single. Tae-Sik looks for the perfect woman to fall in love with at first sight. The second son is Tae-Bum (Ryu Soo-Young) who works as a reporter for a broadcasting company. The third son is Tae-Hee (Joo Won) who works as a detective. Tae-Hee is a tough guy, but soft around his grandmother and mother. The youngest son is Tae-Pil (Yeon Woo-Jin) who doesn't work.

One day, the family's peaceful and happy lives are shaken by Baek In-Ho (Lee Young-Ha). Approximately 10 years ago, Hwang Chang-Sik rented the Ojakgyo farm from Baek In-Ho and in return placed his name on the property deed (so Baek In-Ho could avoid paying taxes on the property). The other family members did not know about the deal and thought the farm belonged to them.

Baek In-Ho has a wife, Jung Yoon-Sook (Jo Mi-Ryung), and a daughter Ja-Eun (Uee). Ja-Eun is beautiful, but self-centered. Ja-Eun's mother is actually her step-mother. When Ja-Eun's father is around, Yoon-Sook acts like a loving mother to Ja-Eun, but when he's not around Yoon-Sook doesn't treat Ja-Eun well. Jae-Eun hides this from her father. Baek In-Ho's runs a company, but the company faces bankruptcy. Now, Baek In-Ho wants his farm back. He gives the family renting the farm a one month notice to vacate the property ....

Bryan Its a great drama I loves to watch it again . Best Couple Ryu Su-Young and Choi Jung-Yoon.

Jess RIP Kim Ja-Ok you were an amazing and gorgeous actress.

Sammy A great drama that I watched a couple of years ago (during it's initial run), but I can't help wondering why the lead actress (Uee, unless we're going with Kim Ja-ok as the series' lead) is the last person shown in the second row? Anyway, everyone in this drama was outstanding and 'Ojakgyo Family' richly deserved it's nearly wire to wire top rating...

Love America Deciding to watch a 58-episode drama makes you wonder if it can hold up for that long. Happy to say my wife and I enjoyed EVERY episode. We always looked forward to the next one. 'Ojakgyo Family' entertained us all the way through. It has an excellent large acting cast, lots of great characters, many side stories, love triangles, heartbreaks, heartwarming reconciliations, comedy relief, twists and turns--everything you could ask for in a K-drama. Of the hundred or so dramas we've watched, this is one of the very best! Highly recommended.

sharonlee94 I've finished this drama since like 3 weeks ago. But how can i still not get over it. I ended up watching it over and over again. Its been 6th times already and I'm on ep 42 now. Please somebody help me. I need to continue my life but i keep being trapped by hwang tae hee >.< joo woonnie you really kill me with your acting!

even uee,whom i didnt really like at first (im not really interested in after school),now im growing to love her. i even watched all her as mvs and all. baek jae un is such amazing role potray amazingly by her.

not to mention a lot of good things on this drama,the plot,the cast,everything seems so perfect and realistic! i find its hard to stop once i star talking about things i like in this drama.

such a waste that i didnt recognize such drama exist. i just watched it to see joo won,since im new fan of him,

i used to find dramas over 20 episode is tiring. but not with this one,eventhough it has 58 ep (58 forgodsake!!!!),i am totally enjoy it! this is just proving how great this drama is(and the fact that i've been watching it over and over again 6th times already)

oh i just need somebody to save me. i dont think i could be this addicted to a drama in the future. Ojakgyo brother is totally ruining my life :(

bskyldz i finished the series last week and this was a pretty good drama :) i love the plot twist, the first half of the drama i hated the family but then i started to like them...i watched a bunch of dramas till now but among them this has my favourite couple --- tae hee and ja eun --- i love everything about them.

Sylvia L. Simmons Hi,

I recently watched and enjoyed the Ojakgyo Family on the TV station 49-2. I raved about the show so much so, that my co-workers presented the series to me as a gift before I went into the hospital to have major surgery.

During my recuperation I watched the 58 episodes, and I want to know if there any episodes beyond 58?

I shared DVD one with my girlfriend, and she is going to order the DVD set.

I fell in love with most of the characters in this series and could feel their pain, joy, etc. I do wish/hope that there is more to come.

A devoted fan,

Thank you,

bskyldz i watched 8 ep. until now. omg this family is really something. poor Baek Ja Eun! it's the first time i hated the lead family. all of them are terrible. mother stole the contract, reporter one did unproved news which ruined everything for ja eun, police/lead guy acts like decent policeman but he is same! they lived for free without paying any rent for 10 years and still saying this area was them wtf!

Paul hope KBS world air this show again..really want to see it...dont know why i missed this awesome show! -_-

jenny best drama.. i really like tae bum and soo young.. best couple ever.. and interaction between in laws.. hilarious

Dawn The director of OB and Good Doctor brings together once more one of the best actors of his generation - PD Ki Min Soo and Joo Won! Additionally I just loved the role done by Kim Ja Ok - the mother..... She was the one who was holding the family and nurtured them. This drama held my heart like no other family drama :) 58 episodes was worth the story telling of all the characters and seeing them once more brings sunshine in my life. Thank you to the entire team :)

dramagoodie I've come to know Joo Won's amazing acting the first time through this excellent drama. I remember back then I was hooked by jae-eun and tae-hae couple to the point I rewatch all of their scene together over and over. What a lovely on-screen couple. Wish to see them together again in another drama! <333333

hotoko hhaha..I really love Ryu Su-Young and Choi Jung-Yoon. They really got chemistry together !!... really worth watching drama...!

cecil thank you all the cast and behind the production of this drama series. you realized us how important the family in our life and how to strive despite all trials encountered. excellent cast and production. i was inspired most the life of Jeun ( Uee) wish this moment will have part 2. thank you very much!!!

0708julia_jj Yes,it's the best family drama I've ever seen compared to You're the best lee soonshin which air now. The director can balance the story of Hwang brothers,there is sad, funny, sweet moments in each episode :) I like the story between jaeun-taehee couple, second brother, jaeun-bokja, and interaction between hwang brothers :)

rory best family drama evaaaah

qUEEN Best family Kdrama I've seen!! Most recommended!! UEE and Joo-won daebak couple!!

stefiee i love you joo won !! >.<

blueLS This drama is so sweet and good.. I've got so many things to learned so far..

lileth TS Ojakgyo's brother love life were amazing, and interesting and the actors in each love life were good, especially Tae Hui (jo won) and Baek jun (Uee) so with Tae Bum and So yeong, no wonder this drama won so many awards. I like it too..no doubts.. All the actors/actress here did their best..Looking forward to see you again in KBS World LA... Best of luck.. so many Filipinos watch your drama here in L A..

Cici Ojakgyo family just gets better and better. Every character is fun to watch and all the actors and actresses are exceptional. The writers are the best at really knowing how to keep every one interesting and everything realistic. Thank you KBS for bringing us such great entertainment!

Lilyc what's with this drama. One looks like Kang Dong Won. The other one looks like Jung Woo Sung. And the thirth has a similar look as Min hyuk (CN BLue). The eldest brother reminds me of an older version of Baek Dong Soo. (sorry to say this, becoz the actor from BDS looks really attractive and has better looks of course, its just a reminding)
