Five Children: Happy Together Special

Five Children - HT.1

Happy July 4th, Twinkles~! Especially to those of you in the United States as we celebrate our nation’s Independence Day. 🙂

Now that I’m “back,” I thought that I would share with you an episode from Happy Together, featuring five cast members from one of my current favorite shows, Five Children (2016). Isn’t this a nice way to start the work/study week? 😉 And the best part? It’s subbed in English! 🙂

Enjoy~! And have a victorious week!

Video: Released February 25, 2016, compliments of KBS World TV via YouTube  

If you’re chomping at the bit for the Happy Together episode with Shin Hye Sun and Sang Hoon that just aired recently, stay tuned for the English-subbed video! 🙂 I’ll share that with you as soon as KBSWorld makes it available. 🙂 In the meanwhile, you can catch the series on YouTube and/or watch the raw episode of the Happy Together (here).

For a weekend family drama, Five Children is surprisingly turning into the type of series that I adore–cute, funny, sweet, etc. You get the idea. Seriously, I sometimes wonder if I’m watching a rom-com instead of a family drama. 😉

Although I’m a bit puzzled as to why Kwon Oh Joong appeared on the show instead of Ahn Jae Wook (the male lead)–I haven’t had a chance to watch the episode yet–I’m just glad that the cast is starting to get some major love. Let me know in the comments if you’re watching this show as well. 🙂 And if you’re not, I think some of you might like it. 😉

  1. Happy July 4th to you! ^^

    I’ve seen this special. I, too, was surprised to see Kwon Oh Joong instead of the male lead, Ahn Jae Wook. However, he’s hilarious. And he can dance! ^0^

    Five Children is a rom-com to me because I’m watching only the SangMin-Yeontae, and sometimes, TaeMin-JinJu parts. Love them! 🙂

    I’m a bit puzzled over the quandary SangMin and TaeMin face, though. Why is the brothers marrying Yeontae and JinJu (who aren’t even blood related) such a taboo?

    1. I think it’s the mother’s thing. You already see she is not typical by favoring the younger for the eldest. When have you ever seen that before? It’s going to be interesting whereby she’s not going to accept either girls truthfully in the beginning. My prediction.

      1. LOVE the mother! She seems like a realistic and loving Korean mother who only wants the best for her children *thumbs up*

        1. Park Hae-mi “Unstoppable High Kick” Mom! I love this actress and was thrilled to see her and Ko Im-beom (whose projects I’ve followed since watching “East of Eden”) cast as the Kim brother’s folks. Looking forward to episode 40….and now an extension so we’ll have 54 episodes.

          Seriously, KBS has been doing a great job with the last few weekend shows they’ve had…”What Happens to My Family”, “House of Bluebird”, “All About My Mom”, and now “Five Children”. Curious to see how KBS’s next weekend show “Laurel Tree Tailors” will be. Right now “Five Children” and “What Happens to My Family” are my two favorites.

          And! Welcome Back to Snoopy’s Twinkie! So happy to “hear” from you ; )

          1. Thank you for the warm welcome back! 🙂 I couldn’t handle All about My Mom despite the Lee Sang Woo and Eugene appearance; however, Five Children is a whole different ball game! 🙂 I’m with you on Five Children and What Happens to My Family ranking up there as two of my favorite weekend family shows. 🙂

            Here’s hoping that the extension doesn’t weaken the story! 😉

    2. Thanks, RWJQ!
      The quandary is really a lingering remnant in Korean culture of the old social conventions. Usually, only the traditionally-minded Koreans care about issues like no in-laws marrying each other or people from the same branch of the last name marrying. Shows like A Thousand Kisses and Reply 1988 dealt with this briefly, and it was in my lifetime that Korea repealed the law forbidding such marriages. I think it has something to do with the old ways wanting to keep the family lines uncomplicated or such. >.< Of course, this law is no longer in effect, but some of the traditionalists--like Sang Min and Tae Min's mother--still adhere to it. Hope this helps. 🙂 Thanks for reading and leaving me a comment! 😉

      1. I was aware of the strong preference, for some Koreans, not to have marriages between two from the same clan. The older generation Chinese had similar practice too. But I didn’t know it carries over to include in-laws as well.

        Thank you very much for your explanation, Grace. I appreciate it. ^^

        1. Awww…you’re very welcome! And many thanks for your continued support! 🙂 Glad that you’re watching Five Children, too! <3

          1. Thanks! Heh, I was led to the show watching Sung Hoon in Cool Kiz on YT. One clip led to another and then I came to a cute fanvid featuring SangMin and Yeontae. The rest, as they say, is history. ????

          2. LOL. That’s the best to discover a new show–continued support for our faves! 🙂

  2. I adore this drama! If I watch nothing else on the weekend, it is this! Admittedly, Sang Hoon brought me though I’ve seen Ahn Jae Wook before, this drama is turning into the kind of family weekend drama that I’ve sorely missed! The recent ones have been hit/miss with me lately; some have been pretty dismal! But this one has restore my love for the weekenders once again!
