bella Me and my husband have watched almost 20 korean dramas. I never made comments before but this one is an exception. For the family drama genre i must say wonderful mama is the best. Me and my husband have learnt alot of life moral education from this drama. How to educate and raise your kids. Best plot and ending. Loves the actress and actors. My favourite so far besides empress ki.

David tran Any can tell me who is the lost bok-hee's son? Hoon nam? Or some one else?

charlene Does any body know the name of the actor who played the ex of the evil secretary, Kim Nan Hee, who also happened to be a friend of Young soo? Really need to know his name

eman I feel doctor hong is mi soo

Asoka To "wonderful mama" I want to know the soundtrack where Young Chae and Hoon Nam in the park after Young found that they still rich. tq.

Tony To wonderful mama team

Will there be a soundtrack to this movie?

Alejandro Higashiyama Enjoyed the series very much. Wanted to see Chairwoman Choi Eun Ok to be punished more severely! I notice a number of Kdramas' endings the villains get away with a slap in the wrist.

Davia I really like the acting and the characters in this drama. It is very enjoyable to watch and is a good balance between melodrama and romance. It's a serious drama but light hearted and fun at the same time.

The only problem with this drama is the back story that Bok Hee's ex left her and married his ex fiance that stole his and Bok Hee's child and gave it away to some unknown person. No sane person would be able to stomach marrying someone like that let alone have children with her and then to keep apologizing to her for decades. And Bok Hee apologizing to her too was also unbelievable. What right did they think Eun Ok had to force him to marry someone he didn't love. She knew he didn't love her when they were engaged.

But apart from the sickening back story the rest of this was very enjoyable and heartwarming.

cheszka_47 this is the BEST KOREAN Drama i've ever watched..I LEARNED Many Lessons..

I Love it! This deserves an award!!

karletta I love this drama but I thought it was going to be 50 episodes I can't believe it ended so quickly. I wanted to find out if the treatment worked, I wanted them find out that he is her son. I dont care if others didnt like. The topic of this show was one that hit home for me. My great grandmother died from this disease. So even if this is not a true story I still wanted to see her make..it would have been like seeing my greatgrandmother make it.

Page Finish Watching Episode 47 & 48. This was a beautiful Ending. All Truth reveal on Episode 47, great and surprising story line on episode 47..

tp I've just finished the last two espisodes and was a bit disappointed, feeling like it was unfinished or incomplete! The characters like Han Dong-Soo all of a sudden disappeared unreasonably without any trace/mention. Then Lee Soo-Jin also was out in the last 6 or 7 episodes despite she was also the main character in the drama. Hmm! I think there should've been two more episodes in order to end the drama beautifully. Nevertheless, I still love to watch this drama over and over again for all the cast members are good looking & acting.

Page I have watch episode 47 and 48 (raw), i still don't know who her first son really is. Do anyone out there know who her first son is? What happen to her driver that drove her around. Did I miss something that I can't recall what happen to the driver? I just love this drama, but I lost track on some episode? OMG! Help?

tp Why does Han Dong-Soo disappear in the last few episodes? This drama is such a hit. I really love and enjoy watching it. Wish all the dramas were well written like Wonderful Mama. Congrats!

mariana wow! yooyoung cute!

Boy A Han Dong-Soo IS Yoon Bok-Hee's long lost SON, That MEAN Yoon Bok-Hee's BODYGUARD IS her SON!!!!!!!!! ( I LOVE THIS Drama )

Cedric If Wonderful Mama reveals that Hoon Nam is Bok Hee's long lost son, THAT MEANS YOUNG CHAE KISSED HER "BROTHER". EWWWWWWWWWWWWW


Lizzy I have to admit i had low hopes for this drama too,I wondered why are they all connected?, this doesn't make sense.But by watching the last episodes I understand now they don't want to rush thing there are about more than 10 , one hour episodes left.So I feel they will be able to close all the seemly missing holes and gaps in the story like they started to do in the last few episodes so to any one angry/mad don't judge an unfinished drama and if you don't enjoy don't watch. There are tons of popular dramas I hated but i never post my hate online.Also about the chemistry I could tell it was awkward that's what made me stray away from this drama in the start I wondered, she's his girlfriend why call him boss?, why is she so shy when it comes to the romantic parts? But after something major happens (Don't want to spoil it!) they seem like a normal couple so keep watching trust me it will get better!

Annie I love this drama...just wish it wasn't only two days every week):

Cedric @Ray Z Miss Kim is portrayed by Yoon Joo Hee

Ray Z Anyone know the name of the actress that plays the secretary "Miss Kim"?

Edward I stopped watching at beginning because no good for me. I try again and now better.

G-girl I love this drama it's very interesting and one of the best , i hope the rating will go up =)

micky P I LOVE THIS DRAMA. idk wtf you guys are talking about -___- wtf -.- I HOPE THEY DONT STOP IT TT_TT its one of the best D;

Lee Okay, no rude comments and only respect. Unfortunately I agree with the others. I gave up watching. I'll just tune into the next drama. Please post here when this one is wrapped up.

cilla everyone please respect this drama. don't write any rude comment please. thankyou

Nanmo Ratings are so low. I agree please end it and replace it ASAP. It's the only korean drama I can't stand to watch. No chemistry.-Nanmo in USA.

Valerie I enjoy watching this drama, it is soooo funny Fighting

c0mm3nt4t0r I like the story of this drama, and the fun characters: the 2 brothers and sisters.

mitch808 Not surprised at all for only 7 percent rating up to 17 episodes. NR episode 18, Viewers probably dropping out. I endured up to 14 episodes, jung yo mi was only actress that kept me going. I enjoyed watching her in Rooftop Prince. Why this was genre: comedy is beyond me! (only 1st ep) Totally agree with one comment, this should drop out early. Nothing but typical kdrama same-o same-o, Arrogance, grief, Corporate "King of the hills-screw you over" screenwriters must be running out of material. How this will survive 50 episodes with only 7 percent will be beyond a miracle!

Dave Wow this drama is weak. Hopefully they cancel it early like they did tasty life. The drama before this with nam nabi was great. We need more good dramas.

Vilnya Love the story. And the families involved. This drama is really funny and lovely :D

Greenluvs I can't wait! I'm excited about the leads!

Cedric Damn the bad girl from Rooftop Prince will be the leading actress?


alma im so excited for this new drama of jung gyu woon oppa!!!! saranghe!
