The drama revolves around the lives of housewives living in a luxurious residenal area called sky castle in suburban seoul. They are determined to make their husbands more sucessful and to raise their children like princes and princesses. They want their children to go to SNU medical school, so they use every way possible to get that. They spend billions of won to hire coordinators for college entrance exams.

  • Review

If I am going to watch a drama whose episodes are over an hour twenty minutes each then this is definitely the one.

This follows the life of 4-5 families who live in the SKY castle. In this case, SKY Castle is more like a small estate where very influential and educated people live (doctors, lawyers etc). They all seem to have formed a small community where they hold parties for families who children are able to get into famous universities like Harvard, Seoul National, Yonsei, Korea University. They pay a lot of money in hiring private tutors to ensure that their children stay in the top of their class.

This in turn places a lot of pressure on the student/children who have to carry these responsibilities on their teenage shoulders.

Each of the families have their dynamic but the drama really kicks off when a woman shoots herself in the head due to depression and everyone’s over expectation.

So many secrets that leads to self betrayal, neglect and grief. The chase of power

Hilarious character with the pyramid, explaining how he wants his children to be at the top of the pyramid I.e they have to become president. His relationship with his family was definitely one of the funniest.

You need to watch it to understand the hype.

  • Little Spoiler

The handsome guy is accused of killing the girl he is in love with.

  • Rating

I gave this a 10 out of 10 stars. It was so well done and it was just everything I was looking for in a drama

  1. I saw this on this Netflix weeks ago but it didn’t really catch my attention to give it my time. I work in a Korean company and I thought I don’t want any more of their drama. Ha! But you are pretty convincing here so I think I’d give it a try at lunch break. 😉
    Have a great day!
