It's a Family Thing

Description

 

The couples Bae Irene and Kang Seulgi, Shon Wendy and Park Joy, are door neighbors in the building where they live, the New York Drive located in New York City. Otherwise, their lives would be forever entwined by the fact that real estate agent Bae Irene being Joy's ex-wife, and career partner with whom she lives competing and fighting; and dentist Wendy being the former wife of writer Seulgi. Even more because the children of Irene and Joy's marriage, the "annoying" Yeri and Jisoo, live with Joy and the stepmother doing a thousand of to drive their moms nuts. The daughter of Wendy and Seulgi, Olivia, who lives with her mother  Seulgi and Bae Irene, is more quiet and introspective, but no less problematic. The circus is armed with the arrival of Kang Hyoyeon, the three-faced mother of Seulgi who came to settle in the house of her daughter, and to attack the life of the current daughter-in-law, Bae Irene, and also the ex-daughter-in-law, Wendy. To complete the picture we have Victoria the domestic worker, who works in both apartments, full of stories from her homeland (Busan) to tell but never remembering the end. And Tiffany Hwang, the building's trustee eyeing the confusions of the two couples, and her husband Kim Heechul. You all may not understand the confusion of their livesm but it's ok, afterall, it's a family thing.
