Looking for a K-drama to watch this month?

Click here for Life is Beautiful episodes. It's a human drama--meaning 'Areumdaun Saesang' is heavy on narration--but it paints a good picture of what Korean family life is. The cast portraying three generations living under a single roof on Jeju island would not let the steam go down in the series. It even includes a flare of modernization introduced in a rather closed-minded orientation of Koreans by introducing a gay main character, discussions of divorce, and abortion.
The drama is really inspiring by giving viewers a sense of how strong a family can hold on despite its internal issues and intricacies.
