Plot[edit]

Dandelion Family covers the lives of three sisters.

Eldest sister Ji-won (Song Seon-mi) is married to a dentist (Jung Chan) from a wealthy family. Although her husband is deemed perfect by everyone else, he controls every aspect of Ji-won's life. He demands she keep the same weight as when she was 23, chooses her clothes, and expects a full report of how she spent her day. In time, the husband's oppressive behavior leads Ji-won to question her marriage.

Middle sister Mi-won (Maya) met her boyfriend (Jung Woo) in college, and they eloped. They live together even though they're not married.

Youngest sister Hye-won (Lee Yoon-ji) represents women of the newer generation. She believes her career is more important than marriage. Due to pressure from her parents, Hye-won enters a contract marriage with her colleague Jae-ha (Kim Dong-wook). She then starts to discover the true meaning of love and life.[3]
