[Funcurve Review] "Oh My Geum-bi"


Thicker than Blood

"Oh My Geum-bi" is a heartwarming family drama that follows the life of a sweet and adorable, yet strong-willed ten-year-old girl, Yoo Geum-bi (Heo Jung-eun). She suffers from a rare genetic disease called Niemann-Pick Disease Type C that makes her body unable to properly metabolize cholesterol and other lipids. It's a condition commonly referred to as "children's Alzheimer's" because of the rapid mental and physical deterioration symptoms that it causes.

As if life is not tough enough on Geum-bi already, after thinking her mom has passed away, she gets abandoned by the only aunt she knows, and is forced to track down her only remaining relative - her estranged conman father, Mo Hwi-cheol (Oh Ji-ho). As a swindler living a purposeless life, Hwi-cheol is shocked to hear about Geum-bi's existence and immediately wants nothing to do with her. And just like that, we're introduced to an onslaught of characters, all unique and important in their own ways.

However, as Hwi-cheol is behind on rent, they eventually end up living with Kang-hee, who treats Geum-bi as her own daughter and completes the full picture of a "fake family".
