Han Seung-wan (Kim Jae Won) leaves for Singapore to surprise his girlfried on her birthday, and Jung Se-jin (Eugene) is on the same flight to say farewell to her deceased "first love" who died in Singapore. When literally bumping into each other at the airport, they accidentally take each other's passports. They meet again and Seung-wan and Se-jin end up spending the day together. Se-jin knows about his girlfriend, who is two timing Seung-Wan with Min Do-Hyuk (Lee Ji Hoon). Partially to help Seung-Wan avoid from discovering the truth, Se-Jin spends the rest of her time with him. They both get drunk out of sadness of their loves, and end up sleeping together. Back in Korea, Se-jin discovers she is pregnant. She leaves to have the baby alone. A series of events happens for about a year, and Se-Jin's clueless sister ends up spilling the secret to Seung-Wan at this engagement party, showing up with Han Shin-Bi (Jung Da Bin), his daughter, without Se-Jin. Seung-wan's life is forced to face fatherhood and the anger of his two-timing girlfriend - Lee Chae-young (Han Eun Jung). Se-jin reappears as they are forced to marry by their respective families. Complicated love takes place, as Do-Hyuk starts to fall for Se-Jin, and so does Seung-Wan, though Se-Jin is more focused on her loving daughter, as something surprising happens to her. The rest of the story revolves around the family's journey in learning to take responsibility, and learning to love each other.

Comedy full of tearjerking pain

First off, Eugene of SES is really cute in this. She's one of the cutest and prettiest actresses who's famous for her singing. And this drama captures her cuteness very very well. She's great in this drama. You're likely fall in love with her. She's beyond mature all the while keeping her angelic and pure heartedness. The actor is very believable as an immature yet good hearted guy. He's supposed to do silly things to upset his wife. He does it so well, we hate him. But he invokes our sympathy cause he does the right thing in the end of the day.

The story is pretty simple. Guy and girl have a One Night Stand (without a condom). Pretty risque, but they own up and marry and have the kid. Of course, neither of them wants to be married or tied at such a young age. But they endure for the sake of the baby. They endure even though they are still finding their niche in life. They survive and balance their lives to keep their sanity and their pride afloat. it's serious. Not much for comedy, but this IS a comedy. Therefore, like my title suggests, it's a comedy full of tearjerking pain. You are supposed to feel like they've made a huge mistake and they should just divorce and leave. But they endure. This is a mature comedy topic.

I really enjoyed the beginning of the series. When the baby was crying it was pretty difficult to watch. They were in so much pain. I hated the baby crying scenes. I could easily give my rating a 2 if I stopped watching. But thank goodness the annoying baby grew up and became a cute kid. This is when comedy started and we got into some light fun. The kid's really cute. But what do you expect when the mom is EUGENE!! Anyway, good acting all around. Even the supporting cast is fun to watch. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I give this a solid 9. A good 10 if the stupid baby phase lasted like two episodes only. But it ran too darn long. I wanted to throw the baby off the bridge. Then the kid girl phase which redeemed the series.
