Lee Soon-jae (73)
President of a small food company. A typical Korean father figure. Headstrong, ill-tempered, and releases gas freely and loudly. His wife passed away 3 years ago. But he suddenly changes when he begins a passionate relationship with Ja-ok, the Vice Principal of a high school. Of course, he is still the same at home, but he tries pathetically to come across as a courteous, gentle, and dashing man when he is with Ja-ok. Despite the students taunting him whenever he visits Ja-ok's high school, and despite his daughter, Hyeon-gyeong's oppositions, he is excited about marrying her.
Kim Ja-ok (60)
The Vice Principal of a high school. She is dating Sun-jae, who is 12 years older than her. Although she has an elegant and poised manner of speech, her favorite form of punishment is pinching the boys' nipples. For this, she is called "Vice Principal, the Pervert." She has never been married and cries while looking out the window when rain is falling, laughs when she see s a crooked sign, and has abrupt emotional fluctuations. In general, she is like a young girl.
Lee Hyeon-kgyeong (43)
Sun-jae's daughter. P.E. teacher at a high school. She's a tomboy and isn't afraid to speak her mind. Thanks to her forthright personality, she often quarrels with the rest of her family but never holds grudges. But Sun-jae's marriage to Ja-ok is one thing that she absolutely cannot accept. She had never liked Ja-ok and now she has to fight with her over every little thing at home, too. She fumes whenever she sees Sun-jae caring for Ja-ok at the thought of her deceased mother.
Jeong Bo-seok (44)
Hyeon-gyeong's husband. Vice President of a food company. Despite his intelligent looking appearance, he is rather slow and so incapable that it's almost funny. So rather than being respected as a son-in-law, Sun-jae is always out to get him anytime and anywhere. He is a kind and caring husband to Hyeon-gyeong and a good father to his son Jun-hyeok and daughter Hae-ri. But he is afraid that even Hyeon-gyeong is getting fed up with his incompetence. The one thing he has confidence in is that he can come off as a handsome guy if he keeps his mouth closed. He is a bad drunk and is especially bad with numbers.
Lee Ji-hoon (29)
Sun-jae's son. He is a resident surgeon at a hospital. His EQ is low, considering his high IQ. He doesn't care about other people's emotions and is self-centered. On a blind date, if the girl seems to be having health issues, he will ask about her menstrual cycle. As such, he is only interested in himself or his own business and has no consideration for formalities or manners. He runs into Se-gyeong by chance soon after she arrives at Seoul and indirectly helps her come his house has a maid. He keeps running into Se-gyeong in various ways.
