Dandelion Family (Hangul: 민들레 가족; RR: Mindeulle Gajok) is a 2010 South Korean weekend family drama series starring Song Seon-mi, Maya, Lee Yoon-ji, Jung Chan, Jung Woo, Kim Dong-wook, Yoo Dong-geun and Yang Mi-kyung.

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.
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.
