What did the halamoni (grandmother) do that caused them to ban her from the house? She is living in secret in their house without the father knowing...
Superficially, it seems like it goes back to the birth of Tteng-chill, when Grandmother promised Army Dad that the child would be born a boy, and that he would someday become an army general. Since Grandmother accepted a substantial sum of money from Army Dad for this assurance, he was furious with her when Tteng-chil was born a girl.
But, that hardly seems a good enough reason for her being forever banned from the house.
I just finished episode #11, and it DOES seem that there's something peculiar about Seol-chill's relationship with the family. In that episode, the girls all meet up with Grandmother for the first time in years, and while she fawns all over Mi-chill, she's downright mean to Seol-chill. Seol-chill openly asks why Grandmother has never liked her, and Grandma answers back that they should have "never accepted her into the family."
Mom immediately silences the loud-mouthed grandmother, and Seol-chill is left confused about what grandmother might have meant - but, it's possible that this confirms that Seol-chill really is adopted, and that Grandmother doesn't like her because she's not of her own blood.
Could this perhaps be why Army Dad banned Grandmother from the household? Army Dad apparently wants Seol-chill to think she's his biological daughter, and perhaps he fears that Grandma might spill the beans.

This drama is great. I really like Go Joo Won. I missed episodes 7, 8, 9 and 10. I was in Seattle and my relatives dont have KBS at their house! I'm in Northern VA, and next Sat (8/12) will start episode 11. Can someone just give me some info as to what happened in the 4 episodes I missed? Is Seol-Chil not really one of the Chil sisters, but was adopted?

I was reading some spoilers elsewhere. About Episode 8...How come the grandma was hiding from her son in law? Is it true that Seol Chil is adopted from that man that died during Vietnam War? Did grandma say something bad about her to the son in law?
I'm watching Episode 11 tonight. It shows weekends here in No VA 9-10PM

Last saturday I saw the episdoe where the father realizes Michul has quit her job at the hospital and then makes Seol Chil take him to a hotel. Then Michul after ending a date is startled when she sees her father in the hotel lobby. I missed the next episode. Can someone please tell me what happened in the next episode or at least what the father did in regards to Michul?

I don't know if this qualifies as a spoiler, but yesterday I was watching that blooper show called NG (no subtitles but it's still enjoyable). Anyway, they were showing some bloopers from The Chill Sisters and there was a scene where the youngest sister (the pregnant one) was in what looked like her tutor's house, serving his mother. I guess we can surmise that they will end up married at some point. The fireworks when her dad finds out about her condition will be very interesting too lol.
