The Bizarre Bunch revolves around the family of ‘Jang’. Grandma Jang has two sons and one daughter. The oldest is Jae-do, who is forced out of his work and begins to look for labour jobs while his wife, Min-sook is a traditional home-maker who takes of her family and her mother-in-law.
Ki-woong (Jeong joon) is his son, and the eldest of the Jang grandchildren. Due to financial and other circumstances, Ki-woong never went to college; however he works hard to get his job at the cable channel on his own. Ki-woong has a younger sister Da-jeong, who’s trying to get into college but her interests on in fashion and play instead.
The second son, Jae-man, married a wealthy woman, Nara, who owns the ‘well-being home-shopping channel’ where Jae-man, their son, and Ki-woong all work. Jae-man and Nara’s son, Seok-hyeon (Go Joo-Won), who is known for his good looks and smart brain, has recently returned to Korea after completing his MBA degree from America.
The youngest daughter, Jae-ok is a widow, and on top of that she has lost her only child to an accident and lives in deep sorrow until one day an orphan Jong-nam (Kim Ah-Joong) visits her and gives her a present from Jae-ok’s deceased son. Jae-ok adopts Jong-nam, who is a bright and strong-willed woman, despite the difficult life she’s had. One day when Seok-hyeon is out on the street drunk, he runs into Jong-nam and ends up peeing on her by accident, and so begins their fate.
Nara’s good friend, Yoo-jeong, also has one child and her name is Hae-in (Kim Seong-Eun). Hae-in is a respectful, hard-working team manager at ‘well-being home shopping’.. Her mother and Seok-hyeon’s mother agree that they should become in-laws and they try to set up their children for marriage….
