    Hurray for jurors 7 & 8, who started the chain of doubt by asking pertinent questions! Brilliantly written movie with logic, humor and heart. Even more important is that the movie reaffirms faith in the ultimate goodness of our fellow human and the credibility of a jury trial judicial process. None of the jurors were experts in anything or geniuses. Nor did they hold high positions. They were just ordinary people. Yet, in order to arrive at a just verdict, they questioned to their satisfaction. And, instead of doing what was expedient, when it counted the most, each juror did his/her due diligence. After all, they are deciding the fate of another human being. The ensemble cast was excellent. The background music was tongue-in -cheek. This movie is worth rewatching. BTW, there is an old American movie, "12 Angry Men", which also showcased a jury deliberation. However, it doesn't have any humor.

    Description of this drama doesn't do it justice. I thought it was going to be a light-hearted drama about the main character learning and making a mess of her homemaker duties. Instead, this is a drama with a wonderful theme about the various "hats" that a woman wears, ie, as individuals, friends, spouses, mothers, etc. The drama explores some very unique and plausible situations, without being cloyingly contrived. There is no ' suspension of disbelief' required. However, best are the script and dialog that are filled with insightfulness and intelligence. I recommend paying close attention to the topic in each episode and the accompanying dialog discussing the topic. And, the ensemble cast is perfect. It is a pleasure to see all the 'top' stars in a drama together.

    Before I start raving about this drama, let me say that I had the benefit of watching this drama, not with the subs that Viki has inherited as a result of their acquisition of other site's libraries. These subs are not good and certainly do not do justice to this fine drama. Unfortunately, the subs to which I had access are no longer available. However, Soompi's discussion thread of this drama can provide you with insight that is missing in these subs. Acting = A+ Writing = A+ Direction = A+ Soundtrack = A+ Cinematography = A The issues of different standards being applied to men and women, each individual deciding what is meaningful in his/her life, maintaining individuality versus succumbing to peer and societal pressures are all brilliantly dealt with in this wonderful production. Note: Not an idol in sight in this drama. So, this drama may not be for everyone. Just for the astute to good dramas.
