Living in Style (Hangul: 폼나게 살거야; RR: Pomnagae Salgeoya) is a 2011 South Korean weekend family drama series starring Ki Tae-young and Yoon Se-in. It aired on SBS from September 17, 2011 to March 11, 2012, on Saturdays and Sundays at 21:50 for 51 episodes.
Living in Style is the story of three families and their intersecting attempts to make it in the world.
In the first family, Mo Sung-ae struggles to overcome the difficult hand life has dealt her and care for her four children — two of them are angels, but two are selfish little devils.
The Choi family is an affluent family dealing with the recent loss of their patriarch, and a mother trying to retain control of her late husband's assets from her stepson. Choi Shin-hyung, her biological son and chosen successor, is forced to choose between fulfilling her mother's wishes and losing it all for his longtime girlfriend.
The Jo family is a middle-class family led by patriarch Jo Yong-pal, a building security guard, who loves Mo Sung-ae. His jobless, lazy son, Jo Jin-sang, and his daughter-in-law Lee Hae-shim add an endearing, but comical flavor to the group.
These three families struggle to overcome their problems and live in style.
