Series / Ojakgyo Brothers

Go To

A Korean Series airing in late 2011-early 2012, Ojakgyo Brothers or Ojakkyo Brothers is set on farm / orchard that the Hwang family has managed for ten years.

The Hwang family (lead by father Hwang Chang Shik) has lived for a decade on Baek In Ho's land. Now he's shown up, embroiled in controversy in his company, and wanting the property back. But wait! Suddenly In Ho skips town to China, presumably drowning in a ferry accident, leaving behind his spoiled daughter Baek Ja Eun. Ja Eun ultimately shows up at the farm, causing chaos to the elders as well as the four unmarried sons:-



The series contains examples of:

  • Age Cut: Tae Hee—sitting in the same position next to his younger self
  • Always Someone Better: How Tae Pil feels about Tae Hee
  • Awful Truth: The Hwang family had the farm for only ten years, and didn't actually inherit it from a distant dead uncle.
  • Berserk Button: Tae Shik takes it out on a xenophobic co-worker for claiming to "choose his patients wisely."
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: When Tae Shik considers abandoning Guk Soo, Tae Hee rails on him for not considering the boys' feelings, "Do you know what kind of scar, what kind of pain it is to be abandoned?"
  • But Liquor Is Quicker: At least, for Hwang Tae Bum and Cha Soo Young
  • But Not Too Foreign: Korean/Filipino Hwang Guk Soo
  • Casanova Wannabe: Tae Pil
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Tae Hee, who is in love with Ja Eun, spends most of the time either staring at her from a distance or acting out in anger and jealousy. (He eventually gets better).
  • The Charmer:
    • Tae Bum
      Soo Young's father: This kid (Tae Bum) really knows how to BS. A person needs to be sincere.
    • Tae Pil, but to a lesser extent
  • Childhood Friend Romance: Mi Sook liked Tae Shik when they were in school together. He doesn't remember her.
  • Cowboy Cop: Tae Hee
