Family strife fuels rom-com hijinks in Sweet Savage Family
by | November 12, 2015 | 25 Comments
MBC’s upcoming drama Sweet Savage Family wasn’t initially on my radar, but after seeing the teasers and promos, it looks like a funny, feel-good show — if not exactly highbrow — with an amusingly silly plot.
