Flash Review: My Daughter Seo Young

I really wanted to make my own review of this epic drama series, after all I spent at least six sleepless nights to finish watching all 50 episodes. And I did not just fast-forwarded to Lee Sang Yoon parts — I actually enjoyed this series very much. I thought this gave me a breakthrough of sorts in really understanding Korean family values.

To think that I now have not only finished the entire show (50 whole episodes!), but would recommend it to other drama fans too. Wow, right?

So what made me pick this up again in recent months? Well, I’m gonna hafta say, it’s
