Name That Drama: Switched at birth, fakeouts, and rice-induced crying

I remember there were two girls, one living with a wealthy family and the other living with a poor family. Their lives were turned upside down when they find out they were switched at birth. I remember the girl in the wealthy family was so sweet but the poor one was not, and the poor girl became so happy that she could now switch families. I also remember the rich girl had a brother and he really liked to give her piggyback rides. If you know the name of the drama, please help me find it. Thank you in advance.
- A chaebol engagement
The drama is an old one and I can’t remember anything at all about the main characters. I do remember one specific scene about the second lead female though. She’s a chaebol daughter and is set to marry her unrequited love as arranged by her parents. She and all her family arrive at a venue for the engagement dinner and she’s wearing a pink formal gown. She stands in a hallway with a bunch of windows, holding her phone. Dude stands her up.
- A two-part conundrum
I only remember a scene and it’s sometime during the finale I think. The female lead becomes a granny for some reason so she won’t let the male lead see her. He waits outside her house to see her. That’s all I remember.
The second drama, I don’t know if it is same show or a different one.
In the Joseon era, a girl tries to commit suicide in a well and I think she time travels to present, but I’m not really sure. All I remember is a girl wearing hanbok, and the well.
- Driving fakeout
I think this drama came out in recent years. The female lead teaches the male lead how to drive (or maybe the other way round?). She even sat through scary experiences of being driven around by the male lead with (supposedly) bad driving skills. But then, an emergency happened, and the male lead decided to come clean and offered himself to drive for her. Turns out that he actually asked her to teach him to drive just to spend more time together.
- Emotional meals and rice
I’ve been trying to remember the name of this drama, but I only remember one scene. The male lead goes to the female lead’s house and her mother serves him some rice (I think). It reminds him of his mom, so he runs out of the house crying and the female lead goes after him. She stands behind him and he’s standing outside with his arm on the wall and the female lead thinks to herself that she hadn’t expected him to cry. In case it helps, during the eating scene they were sitting on the floor with a table in the middle. Please help me remember this drama!
Thanks for playing, everyone — till next time!
