[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Family Outing" Episode 18 2015/03/08,
Whereas the last episode dealt with the more tangible questions of the future, like how the characters plan to live professionally once all the drama is over with, this one deals more sharply with personal issues. The heart to heart discussion between Jong-tae and Kkeut-soon is really sweet. While Kkeut-soon herself has always been really recalcitrant about candidly considering her own needs, there are multiple sequences here which establish why that's important too, and why that's the real meaning of family,...More

The abrupt disappearance of Kkeut-soon doesn't...create a crisis exactly, but her actions do make it quite clear that the inheritance game is soon to come to an end.

I genuinely just really don't care,...More

The difference between this episode of "Family Outing" and every other episode that's dangled the threat of exposing Joon-hee's true identity is that this time the drama actually goes through with it. There's not even much of an intermediate period of hand-wringing. Joon-hee just goes, you know what, forget it. I'm sick of acting like this. I'm going to say my apologies and just leave. It's a much easier thing for her to do now that there's other things in life that Joon-hee can enjoy aside from the con,...More
