Pinocchio/ 피노키오/ Pinokio ** (Korean)
20 episodes
Kim Hae Sook as Park Ro-Sa

Not a bad drama really. Not really that much of a cemedy, there were a few moments worth smiling over. A bit of romance. Liked the characters of Yoon Yoo Rae, Hwang Gyo Dong, and Dal-Po's brother. Wasn't too wild about the decision poor Grandfather and father had to deal with concerning their grown children's love. even as I recognize Dal-po's lack of blood relation, having raised them both together for such a long time.. seems somehow wrong.

When Ha-Myeong was yet a boy, his firefighting father died in a warehouse explosion, taking several of those under his command with him. Quickly after, the mother and boys were questioned by a hard-nose reporter, with a bent toward making the missing firefighter a criminal. This tore up the little family completely. Some number of years later, a little girl, suffering from the inability to lie, living now with her divorced father, move to their grandfather's island home. There they discover he has adopted a young boy, naming him after a lost son of his own.
Years later, the girl decides to follow in her estranged mother's journalist footsteps. Dal po follows this path as well, thinking it the best way to get revenge on the woman who tore his original family apart. Practically before he realized it, he discovers his brother who has done much wrong and he re-vows revenge on the woman reporter who left them in such tatters some 14 years before. But the story, it seems, goes deeper then that, and it will take near everything he and the other reporters and friends have to learn the truth behind the massive cover-up.
