Drama

jTBC | Airing dates :

24 episodes - Wed, Thu 21:00

Synopsis
In the vein of shows like "Gourmet" and "Pasta", "Fermented Family" is a deliciously simmering blend of food and romance. Song Il-gook ("Land of wind") and recently popular star Park Jin-hee ("Giant") lead this family tale of two bickering restaurateurs who fall in love against the backdrop of a beautiful and traditional Korean restaurant. Lee Kang San is a high-maintenance restaurant owner who strives to make her restaurant perfect in every way. Ki Ho Tae is her part-time employee, a hot-tempered character who constantly clashes with Kang San. A rag-tag group of quirky people frequent the restaurant, drawn to its good food and atmosphere, and Ho Tae and Kang San, in their quest to make the restaurant a happy place that feels like family for customers, may find happiness and family in each other.

  • Park Jin-hee, to be married in May

    2014/04/02, Source,
    Park Jin-hee is getting married this May. Her groom is a lawyer from a famous national law firm who is 5 years her junior. She met him through a friend while filming the MBC drama "Guam Heo Jun" last year. They developed into a relationship slowly and have been meeting around her house, enjoying simple dates. Park Jin-hee has always said her ideal type is a man who can share common interests in environmental activities and sharing. Consequently, her groom-to-be supports her in this way. Despite the fact that she is a stop star, he claims her modesty and kind heart is what attracted himself to her. The two of them have met each other's parents and have decided to get married,...More
  • [HanCinema's Drama Review] "Let's Eat" Episode 1

    2013/11/28,
    The first important thing to know about this drama is that there's a lot of food porn. I was confused when it started because I thought I was watching a coffee commercial. Then actual characters show up. People who do not seem to actually like other people very much, but looove food. Lee Soo-kyeong (played by...Lee Soo-kyeong?) seems to have little interest in men except as a vehicle to gain better social access to better quality food. Soo-Kyeong isn't exactly the most sympathetic woman. Her social life is low quality, but the main culprit for it seems to be her own bad attitude, as well as the fact that she clearly likes food more than she does people,...More

  • [Guest Review] "Fermented Family"

    2012/11/02, Source,
    A couple of days ago I finished a Korean drama by the name of 발효 가족. Literally "Fermented Family", but it's also translated as "Kimchi Family", as fermentation is the process by which kimchi is created, and from a non-Korean perspective "kimchi" makes for an exotic enough title on its own. The show is, unsurprisingly, largely about food. The second and third lead characters are sisters whose familial legacy is a traditional Korean restaurant, 천지인 (Heaven, Earth and Man), located in a forested, mountain area. Many scenes in the series consist of food preparation, and there's a strong intimacy in these scenes that makes the title's difficult linguistic translation quite logical. The extended food preparation scenes are detailed to the point that you could probably reproduce the dishes yourself if you have a good enough culinary eye,...More
