Program Aim

A dramatic reversal in this drama occurs when, for the husband, his forgotten family and for the wife, her in-laws, comprising her husband's grandmother, parents-in-law and three sisters-in-law, appeared suddenly before them.

Hong Yun-hi, the wife and the protagonist in this drama, is a woman who had grown up in a family in tussles everyday due to conflicts between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law.

Before her wedding, she didn't want to marry as she did not want to have another family, the husband's family. At last she encountered a perfectly promising man who was adopted into a family of a Korean businessman in the U.S., graduated from Johns Hopkins University medical school and is now working at a general hospital in Seoul.

He is well-mannered, gentle and sweet and has a sense of humor. All her friends envied her for the smart man, saying that she had good fortune in her later days.

Furthermore, the husband's house is far off in New York and the parents-in-law, who brought five adopted sons in addition to the husband, are known to be on the journey in a remote area and hardly communicated with the family.

In such a condition, the couple could have a dreamlike honeymoon.

By a strange twist of a fate, however, an incident broke out. The husband's family has been found! Unbelievably, the husband's house is just in front of the wife's house. The next-door neighbors have always been in quarrels with her on problems involving waste disposal, parking and stairs cleaning.

It was quite exciting news to appear in the newspaper. (Actually several reporters came to the wife to have interviews, but the wife denied.)

The wife didn't always see eye to eye with the people, who are the husband's family and now her own family, on too many issues.

The husband's grandmother is fastidious, robust and suspicious, the mother-in-law meddlesome and the sister-in-laws have foul tempers.

She doesn't want to live like her mother, but she now may have to go through a more hard life than her mother. She regretted she did not stop her husband from moving to this village shortly after their wedding.

However, looking at the sleeping husband, who has been living for more than 30 years without knowing even the faces of his biological parents, she feels compassion for him and changes her mind.

But the life with the husband's parents and in-laws is wearisome.

This program features raucous and cheerful stories about an unordinary and peculiar family-making of a couple.

시댁: Korean husband's family

시댁: Korean husband's family

: Korean husband's family

I will have a test this afternoon for a Korean language class. It's a level test covering speaking, reading and writing. I hope to be in the intermediate class since it would be a shame if they put me back in the basic class. I am cramming with the Korean language book I used four years ago when I attended a free Korean class for about four months.

If you are non-Korean and your husband is Korean, one of the things that you should learn is how to call the members of your husband's family. In the Philippines, we usually call our elder brothers "Kuya" and our elder sisters "Ate". In the United States, parents-in-law are called by their first names. In Korea, that's totally improper!

Your Korean husband's family is called "" (shi-daek). Your family is called "" (chin-jeong). How you call the people in your husband's family and how you refer to them are different.

Here's a short summary:

Your husband's grandfather

- call him"ha-ra-beo-nim"

- refer to him as"shi ha-ra-beo-ji"

Your husband's grandmother

- call her"hal-meo-nim"

- refer to her as"shi hal-meo-ni"

Your husband's father

- call him"a-beo-nim"

- refer to him as"shi a-beo-ji"

Your husband's mother

- call her"eo-mo-nim"

- refer to her as"shi eo-mo-ni"

Your husband's older brother

- call him"a-ju-beo-nim"

- refer to him as"shi a-ju-beo-ni"

Your husband's older brother's wife

- call her"hyeong-nim"

- refer to her as"dong-seo"

Your husband's older sister

- call her"hyeong-nim"

- refer to her as"shi noo-i"

Your husband's older sister's husband

- call himor"seo-bang-nim"

- refer to him as"shi mae-bu"

Your husband's younger sister

- call her"a-ga-shi"

- refer to her as"shi noo-i"

Your husband's younger sister's husband

- call him"seo-bang-nim"

- refer to him as"shi mae-bu"

Your husband's younger brother

- call him"do-ryeo-nim" if he's not married

- call him"seo-bang-nim" if he's married

Your husband's younger brother's wife

- call her"dong-seo"

- refer to her as"dong-seo"

If there are more older brothers or sisters, append"keun" before the term to the eldest one; while the second eldest is"dul-jjae" while the third is"set-jje". For example, I call my husband's first brother as " " (keun a-ju-beo-nim) while his second brother is " " (ja-geun a-ju-beo-nim) or.

In my husband's family, I'm the youngest(myeo-neu-ri) or daughter-in-law. My twocall me as(je-su-shi) when I'm the only sister-in-law present. But when everyone is present, they would all call me aswhich means "youngest" (Romanization is "mak-ne" but pronounced as "mang-ne"). Both myandcall me that.

My husband's sister and I were born on the same year, but she is several months older than me. Even so, she still calls me "" (eon-ni) because my position in the family is higher than hers.
