Series / Ojakgyo Brothers

Go To

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

The Hwang family (led 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 wants 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:

  • I Am Not My Father: Tae Hee is actually Hwang Chang Shik's nephew. So he's Tae Shik, Tae Bum, and Tae Pil's cousin. But he doesn't remember his father, so he's willing to forgive his father's murderer.
  • Intrepid Reporter: Tae Bum, who even gets his little brother in trouble while ferreting out a story
