5. Shining Inheritance

“Shining Inheritance” stars Han Hyo Joo and Lee Seung Gi, and is a classic when it comes to dramas about family. The drama is a Cinderella story that goes deeper into what it means to repair and reunite families. While the drama is full of twists and turns, one of the largest driving forces in the drama is family. Whether that is Eun Sung’s love for her younger brother Eun Woo or the relationships between an heir inheriting the company from their parents or grandparents, this drama will get you thinking about how strong the ties of family are.

6. What Happens to My Family?

As a parent, all you can wish for is your children to be happy, and that is exactly what main character Soon Bong, played by Yoo Dong Geun, pursues throughout the drama. Of course, his kids, starring Kim Hyun Joo, Yoon Park, and Park Hyung Sik, are anything but happy. They’re lost, angry, lazy, sad, and so much more, but it’s the journey they each go through that makes this drama an absolute ride to hold onto.

7. Father, I’ll Take Care of You

This lighthearted drama focuses on empty nesters who suddenly have a full nest again. We get to see that siblings really haven’t changed that much since children and how their parents handle it. The situation also alludes to the high costs of living (and existing), an issue many new generations of adults are facing. If it’s as fun as it is depicted in the drama, then maybe living at home as an adult isn’t that bad!

8. Ojakgyo Brothers

If there is anything we have learned from dramas revolving around family, it’s that they need to live together. “Ojakgyo Brothers” is about (surprise!) a family that lives together on a farm. This star-studded cast including UEE, Joo Won, and more, are sure to make you laugh with the excitement that entails from so many people living together. These dramas are always like an onion and require some peeling to get to the real truth. The characters, connected plots, and much more, are what make their stories so interesting!
