No empty characters

Han Jae Gook is able to commit illegal acts to cover up the scandalous acts of chaebols because she believes that her actions protect the hundreds and thousands of people who live off of chaebols.
The characters of “Graceful Family” have solid stories and motivations, and the drama has earned praised for its dynamic characters.
No frustrating plot
“Graceful Family” is receiving enthusiastic reactions from viewers for leading each episode with a refreshing, positive attitude. In the first episode of “Graceful Family,” Mo Suk Hee escapes TOP’s surveillance for the first time in 15 years. She returns to Korea, forms a team with Heo Yoon Do, and flees from Han Jae Gook’s tricks. Mo Suk Hee then used her wits to get 1 billion won (approximately $826,100) for a laborer who almost fell into MC Company’s trap while Heo Yoon Do encroached upon Han Jae Gook’s territory in the second episode.
In the third episode, Mo Suk Hee overcame her fears and escaped jail thanks to Heo Yoon Do’s help. President Wang (played by Jeon Guk Hwan), who had been pretending to be in a coma, woke up, gave Mo Suk Hee an advance gift, made her MC Group’s biggest shareholder, and blocked Mo Chul Hee (played by Jung Won Joong) and Han Jae Gook’s scheme to take over MC Group.
No character that disrupts the flow
Im Soo Hyang is perfectly portraying Mo Suk Hee’s confident attitude of putting her pain behind her and moving forward. Lee Jang Woo is successfully expressing the strengths of genuine lawyer Heo Jang Woo through the look in his eyes. Bae Jong Ok is leading the plot through her portrayal of Han Jae Gook as she tries to protect the large company with her lonely charisma.
These leads are joined by a star-studded lineup of actors including Jeon Guk Hwan, Jeong Won Joong, Moon Hee Kyung, Lee Kyu Han, Kim Jin Woo, Gong Hyun Joo, Park Sang Myun, Park Chul Min, Oh Seung Eun, Kim Chul Ki, Kwon Hyuk Hyun, Park Young Rin, and Jung Hye In. Thanks to each actor’s excellent performance, there isn’t a single character who disrupts the flow of the drama.
