58. Like Stars Falling From the Sky 별을 따다줘 (2010) Korean

Choi Jung Won, Kim Ji Hoon, Shin Dong Wook, Chae Young In

Drama Rating: 6/10     Neck Score: B

The only reason I gave this show another chance (the first 2 minutes are so stupid) was because it was on some list of 100 best dramas and it was on Netflix and I was looking for a no commercials weekend.  It was actually a lot better than I gave it credit for.  It does the family/kid humor pretty well.  It's about this girl who works for an insurance company and is obsessed with the company lawyer and hates how poor her family is, and how many kids they've adopted.  Then her parents suddenly die and she has to take care of her like six siblings.  But because of birth secrets, inheritance, and all that crap (which is the reason for her parent's death) they lose their house, etc.  So she ends up taking a housekeeping job, which includes a room and board deal, at the lawyer's house.  She also plans to sneak all her siblings in.  Keeping them hidden doesn't last long, but that's the best part.  This lawyer dude is a jerk, and his brother is sweet, and his nephew is cray cray, and seeing the three bachelors interact with the kids, who range from like 15 to a baby is hilarious.  Especially the gruff lawyer, whose hair was sometimes awful and sometimes strangely sexy.  They even do the poop humor well.  There is plenty of constipation humor too.  Basically there is a little bromance between the lawyer dude and one of the brothers that is adorable.  The kid sleep walks and keeps ending up at the foot of the dude's bed.  It's pretty cute.  The ending was silly, I thought, but oh well.  It was still a good ending in happiness, etc.
