Family outing season 1 - 1 disc
Family outing season 2 - 2 disc
Episode synopsisThe show is a two day and one night show split into two episodes.
In the first episode, it starts with a call from Yu Jae-suk, the permanent MC on the show, telling the rest of the family where the next location is. Each member arrives along with the episode's guest, greeted by Yu Jae-suk who is usually waiting in front of the town hall or a waiting shed. The guest is then given a map to follow to the house that they will be staying in. Once they reach the house, they send off the owners on their vacation and look over the list of chores that the house owners have left behind for them to complete. After this, they begin with the first chore. While completing this chore a game is played in which the family splits up into two teams. After completing the first chore they either go on to the next chore or go to prepare dinner. When preparing dinner, the family splits up the duties once again.
After dinner, the Family plays games for early morning chores. Before Park Ye-jin and Lee Chun-hee's departure, the sleeping arrangements are chosen by having a contest after dinner. Lee Hyo-ri and Park Ye-jin would rank the men in the family from first, as the most desirable, to last (1 to 6 or 7 if there are two male guests) based on how well they perform in the day and the contest. After which the guys rank the girls. Recently, the ranking activities has been replaced with games to figure who will be doing the late-night or early-morning chores. Usually one person is chosen, whether losing as a group or an individual game then choosing the rest, to make a total of three people. The first episode usually ends in the middle of the night's activity.
The second episode begins with the continuation of the night's activity. After the rankings or the nighttime chores, the Family goes to bed. They usually sleep around midnight or later, because of the night activities or because they talk so much before going to sleep. The next morning the show's producer wakes up Yu Jae-suk and gives him the instructions for the Wake Up Mission. Initially, the Wake Up Mission was in the form of a quiz but later on was changed into more physical games. Whoever loses this game, has to make breakfast for the family. The loser then picks one to sometimes three people to make the breakfast with him/her. While they make breakfast, the rest of the Family either goes back to sleep, or completes another chore. The people that makes the breakfast gets to choose what they want to cook. Most of the time, the process of making breakfast takes a long time so it will be at least noon or later when the family members eat breakfast. After breakfast, the Family does the remaining chores on the list left by the owners. While completing the final chores, another game is played. After finishing the chores the owners of the house return and the Family leaves. A preview of the next week's episode and guest/s is shown at the end of the episode.
In later episodes, half of the night's activity aired before preparing dinner, afterwards going back in time (3–4 hours) to prepare dinner, with the episode ending at dinner. The second episode still begins with the continuation of the night's activity, which usually involves the selection of who will be doing the early-morning chores. Then those people are shown doing the chore before the Wake Up Mission is played. Afterwards, breakfast is made and a shot of the "Family" is shown before the preview of the next week's episode. This has virtually eliminated the actual owners' involvement with the family, other than handing the house over to the Family at the beginning.

She came out on top academically from elementary school all the way up to graduate school, but she hasn't had much luck with personal relationships. So-Ra tries to do everything for her boyfriend, including writing his thesis paper, but she catches him cheating on her with her friend Jin-Joo (Lee Su-Kyeong). So-Ra is filled with anger, thinking back to the time her boyfriend said he doesn't want to have sex with her, but he does with Jin-Joo. Those words brings back memories of a past experience. So-Ra becomes even angrier and starts to throw things at them, with her boyfriend covering up Jin-Joo to protect her. So-Ra leaves her boyfriend's apartment and Jin-Joo follows her. Jin-Joo explains that when she asked her boyfriend if he was in a relationship with So-Ra he replied they were just friends. Jin-Joo asks if they have had sex and So-Ra replies that it's none of her business. Jin-Joo criticizes So-Ra's attitude towards men. Jin-Joo tells So-Ra that she seems to have someone else on her mind and is pretending to love her current boyfriend.
So-Ra works as an instructor at a prestigious university. Due to her personal beliefs, she reports on a professor who has embezzled money from the university. Incredibly, So-Ra is the one who gets fired. So-Ra now tries to overcome the break up with her boyfriend and the loss of her job.
So-Ra meets her male friend Chan-Jin (Shim Ji-Ho), who works at a cosmetics company, at a cafe. In the past, So-Ra helped Chan-Jin get a promotion by writing a report for him. Chan-Jin attempts to comfort So-Ra. So-Ra suddenly announces that she will work at the cosmetics company and will work hard to be successful. She takes an interview from the company and is able to pass by the information she gleaned from writing Chan-Jin's report.
Meanwhile So-Ra asks Jin-Joo to leave her apartment. Jin-Joo, who works infrequently as a model, has nowhere to go. Jin-Joo begs to stay at her apartment. So-Ra is determined to kick Jin-Joo out. Jin-Joo's phone suddenly rings and she answers it. So-Ra, under the wrong assumption that it is her ex-boyfriend calling Jin-Joo, takes the cellphone from Jin-Joo and blurts out things on the phone. To So-Ra's horror the person on the other end is Jin-Joo's father. Because of this mistake, So-Ra allows Jin-Joo to stay for another week.
On the first day of work at the cosmetics company, So-Ra has difficulties with a colleague who appears to dislike her. While carrying a box at work she spots Joon-Soo (Jae Hee) who graduated from same university as her. So-Ra feeling uncomfortable tries to get away, but Joon-Soo blocks her and talks to her.
Later that night, Chan-Jin visit's So-Ra's apartment to have dinner even though he wasn't invited. Chan-Jin meets Jin-Joo. They all end up going to a cafe together. At that cafe, Chan-Jin receives a phone call and leaves. So-Ra and Jin-Joo begin to drink more alcohol. Chan-Jin then brings Joon-Soo to the cafe. Both of the women are drunk by this time. Jin-Joo quickly forms a crush on Joon-Soo and she hears that Joon-Soo is the successor to the company she starts to like him even more.
The next day at work, So-Ra left behind at home an apartment USB stick. Jin-Joo comes over to the cosmetics company to deliver the USB stick. At this time, a model failed to show up for work. The model was to introduce products to high ranking employees at the cosmetics company. Jin-Joo is quickly asked to fill in for her. When Jin-Joo appears in front of the executives she makes eye contact with Joon-Soo. After the modeling session, Jin-Joo bumps into a handsome man who asks her where he can submit a resume for a secretarial position. Jin-Joo says she doesn't know, but they should go find out together.
During this time, So-Ra works in a office alone. Suddenly, she remembers where from her past she remembered a man telling her that he didn't want to have sex with her. That man is Joon-Soo. The next day, So-Ra sees Jin-Joo in the lobby of her workplace. Jin-Joo tells So-Ra that she submitted a resume for a secretarial position and she's here to take an interview. So-Ra waits for Jin-Joo to get out of the interview, because So-Ra wants Jin-Joo's help in getting revenge on her ex-boyfriend. Jin-Joo helps So-Ra put on makeup and pick out a dress to wear. So-Ra then goes to a restaurant where her ex-boyfriend is meeting another woman. So-Ra pours a foul smelling chemical on his head and leaves.
When So-Ra and Jin-Joo return to their apartment, they find Joon-Soo waiting for them. Joon-Soo asks So-Ra to go with him and he needs to talk to her. After they leave, Jin-Joon catches a taxi and follows them. In Joon-Soo's car, as they drive, Joon-Soo tells So-Ra he is interested in buying a patent that So-Ra owns related to dying chemicals organically. They go to the cafe where they usually go. There, Joon-Soo asks to talk about the past, mentioning a misunderstanding. So-Ra tells him that she doesn't want to talk about that. When So-Ra is about to leave, Joon-Soo grabs her arm.
The past incident that So-Ra doesn't want to talk about took place when Joon-Soo and So-Ra were running and it started to rain. They went to a motel room. They both sat on the bed and, out of the blue, So-Ra kissed Joon-Soo's cheek. After that, So-Ra went into the bathroom to take a shower. When she came out of the bathroom she discovers that Joon-Soo has left. So-Ra looks out of the motel window and sees Joon-Soo running away.
