What Happens to My Family? (Hangul가족끼리 왜 이래; RRGajokggiri Wae Irae; lit. What's With This Family?) is a 2014-2015 South Korean television series starring Yoo Dong-geun, Kim Hyun-joo, Kim Sang-kyung, Yoon Park and Park Hyung-sik.[1][2] It aired on KBS2 on Saturdays and Sundays at 19:55 from August 16, 2014 to February 15, 2015.

Plot[edit]

Cha Soon-bong is a widower who has devoted his life to his three children, loving them despite their self-centred selfishness and disrespect. However, when he discovers that he has terminal cancer, he decides to use the time he has left to ensure their happiness when he is gone. His eldest daughter Kang-shim, after a failed relationship, has resigned herself to never marry and a lifetime of being alone; his eldest son Kang-jae, a brilliant oncologist, is resentful of his humble origins; and his youngest son, Dal-bong, is a drifter who claims that nothing seems to go right for him.

As part of his scheme Soon-bong takes his children to court, since he has received none of the filial piety that he is due; he asks instead for a cash sum that none of them can pay. The children settle instead for granting their father seven requests. As these requests are fulfilled they each in turn comes to realize the reason for their father's bizarre behavior. To make him happy, all that the children have left is to set right their own lives.
