Hong Na-Ri works as a flight attendant. Her mother passed away 10 months ago and she doesn’t have any other immediate family members. Hong Na-Ri returns to her hometown to visit her mother’s grave. There, she sees a young man at her mother’s grave. The man, Go Nan-Gil, introduces himself as her father. Before Hong Na-Ri’s mother died, she married Go Nan-Gil. He now lives at her mother’s house and runs the small dumpling restaurant that her mother ran.

The Finale, bow.

I can’t wait to end this drama not because it really interests me, but because I just don’t like it anymore.

Objectively, Sweet Stranger started out with so much potential. It was sweet and warm. The whole step-father setup was the main course of the plot, the show was well cast, and there was no doubt from the actors’ performances too, but just like the other dramas without a better plot, the story runs slow, was dragged and a lot of flashbacks which I believe was just shown to kill the time.

In fairness, what I like in some parts of the story is the mature relationship of our protagonist. The couple used to discuss their problems and issues, being honest with each other and trusting their relationship even though things got messed up and scary. I like the Hong dumpling store too, actually I love to eat dumplings. This must be enough.

Verdict: 7/10
