[[caption-width-right:325: "Because ... [[IronicEcho you're my brother]]!"]]

LonelyRichKid Yoo In Ha is a ChildProdigy pianist and heir to the piano company, [=BooSung=] Instructments. He lives with his senile grandmother, his mother [[BitchInSheepsClothing Chae Young Rang]], and his father Yoo Man Se. Because he has no worries, In Ha spends most of his time, playing the piano and being a SpoiledBrat. That is, until his father brings home a [[LongLostRelative long lost son]], Ji Ho. Ji Ho is [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter older, nicer]], and to top it off, he has absolute pitch--a great advantage for anyone who wants to be a pianist. Not only that, Young Rang takes a liking to the new kid, allowing him to call her mother and treating him with deference.

And then [[FromBadToWorse a fire engulfs their home]], [[spoiler: killing Yoo Man Se, leaving In Ha with only 9 workable fingers, and]] forever changing the lives of the members of the Yoo family.

''Five Fingers'' (다섯손가락) is a 2012 [[KoreanSeries makjang]].

!This series contains examples of:

* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: In Ha has been studying the piano practically since ''birth,'' but then Ji Ho comes in and is "naturally" gifted.
* BadAssBoast:
--> '''Ji Ho''': Mom, if I find out that you were that evil, then I'll really go crazy. (''... and crazy he goes.'')
* BigScrewedUpFamily
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Young Rang
* {{Callback}}
** "Stupid frog ahjusshi."
** "Grandma, make sausage for dinner!"
** In one of the early episodes, senile Grandma makes a nonsensical comment about property in Gapyeong. [[TimeSkip 14 years later]], the other characters start to make the connection.
* ChekhovsGunman: The maid, Dong Yi
* ChekhovsSkill: Ji Ho's perfect pitch is shown more prominently as a child. After the TimeSkip, it's barely mentioned until he has to find out [[{{Frameup}} who framed him]].
* ChildProdigy: In Ha. Ji Ho.
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Lawyer Choi
* ClearMyName: The whole Professor-Ha-versus-Ji-Ho arc
* ColourCodedForYourConvenience: In Ha sports a huge ring on his left pinkie--just in case [[ViewersAreGoldfish the audience forgets]].
* TheCorpseStopsHere: [[spoiler: Ji Ho is wrongly accused of killing Danny Hong, because he arrived on the scene first.]]
* DaddyIssues[=/=]MommyIssues: Whoa, boy!
* DeathWail: Ji Ho delivers one of these when he finds out that [[spoiler: Young Rang killed Man Se]].
* DeusAngstMachina
* [[DoNotCallMePaul Do Not Call Me "Grandma"]]: That's '''Lady''' Na to you.
* DragonWithAnAgenda[=/=]EnigmaticMinion: Lawyer Choi is the only one who knows all of Young Rang's secrets, and he doesn't seem keen on keeping them.
* DramaticShattering: All over the place, but especially done by In Ha.
* DramaticThunder:
** PlayedWith
---> '''Lady Na''': I'm SO jealous. (''thunder'') Omona! Why is it suddenly thundering? It's not even raining.
** And Straight
---> '''Young Rang''': Oh, right. The will. (''thunder'')
* DrowningMySorrows: In Ha drinks away his problems often. And a lot.

* FrequentlyBrokenUnbreakableVow: "Don't make In Ha sad."
* GenreBlindness: Da Mi's mother repeatedly does things that anyone who's seen a makjang (or [[IdiotBall anyone with half a brain]]) would reconsider. Confront the more powerful, richer person who accused your husband of murder? ''[[SarcasmMode Sure, that'll end well]].'' Hand over the only copy of the receipt that could exonerate your husband? ''Ok, let's do that.'' Tell Lawyer Choi what you're planning? ''Yes, he's not harmful at all.''
* HandSignals: Da Mi's father, Hong Soo Pyo, was deaf, so everyone in the family can sign. Comes in handy when Da Mi's mother stops speaking to her for being disobedient.
* ICanRuleAlone: "I'm not going to be Mom's puppet anymore." (Too bad he [[VillainBall messes up]] and is forced to work with her again.)
* [[ICanStillFight I Can Still Play the Piano]]: Ji Ho will play through the injury no matter what, and In Ha would find a way to have someone else play instead.
* IdiotBall: Really? Ji Ho, you're going to trust the two people in the world who's proven untrustworthy just because '''family''' is important to you?
* IfICantHaveYou: In Ha says this trope exactly to Da Mi.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Young Rang's step mother, "Lady" Na Kye Hwa, is obviously on nobody's side but her own; however, she almost always fails at her "evil" plots. But, come on, someone give [[DoNotCallMePaul Grandma]] a hug.
* InternalReveal: [[spoiler:"The person who killed your father was your mother."]]

** The relationship between Lawyer Choi and Danny Hong
* NotGoodWithRejection: No, In Ha, Da Mi says no. ''Repeatedly.''
* NotSoDifferent:
** Why does Young Rang's mother-in-law like her? Because they're too much alike.

* [[NotSoStoic Not So Emotionless]]: The scene where Young Rang speaks to the photo of [[spoiler:her [[LongLostRelative long-lost son]]]].

* WickedStepmother: Young Rang
* YouCantThwartStageOne: [[spoiler:Young Rang and In Ha are successful in causing a ongoing rift between Ji Ho and Professor Ha, even causing both Ji Ho and Professor Ha to demean each other. This plan worked so well that Professor Ha was even going to name In Ha his successor--until In Ha [[TwoRightsMakeAWrong fakes his own music]]. Then Professor Ha [[NiceJobFixingItVillain jumps back]] on the Ji Ho bandwagon.]]
