Frankly, I only seen Kwon Sang Woo in ‘My Tutor Friend’ and he will always be for me the bad boy with the soft heart and he seems to be the same here so hence the appeal of this drama. Lee Yo Won will ever be Bong Dal Hee in my mind. I thought it was a rather unusual partnership. Then there was the famous elevator scene that took some 10 hours to film. Wow! It took that long to get it right? I was keen to look at it because I thought Lee Yo Won was the woman in the evelator scene. I thought what breakthrough for Lee Yo Won.
Okay, the drama unfolds how Kang Yong Gi (Kwon Sang Woo) and Na In Jung (Lee Yo Won) had their respective first love and how badly betrayed they were from the experience. Yong Gi and his girlfriend Kim Joanne did not get his father’s approval because Joanne’s mother was formerly a high class call girl so deemed unsuitable as a potential daughter-in-law even though Yong Gi is an illegitimate son from an affair his father had. Kindly note that his mother’s name was In Jung too. Yong Gi left for the States to be with Joanne.
The President’s principle wife has only one daughter and hence had to accept Yong Gi because of her failure to produce a son for the President. Even though it is scientifically proven that the men determined the sex of the child but it does not help when the wife keep having female offsprings while the woman outside managed to conceive the desired son.
Therefore the only hope the Wife can placed her hopes is to get a brilliant son-in-law who have the right family connection but not the money. Lee Soo Hwan (Kim Seong Soo) married the Princess and pretty much living under pressure from his uncontrollable wife and an ambitious mother-in-law.
So when he met the innocent Na In Jung one day, she was just the breath of fresh air in his stifled life. I guess he took a chance for his own happiness. Na In Jung herself was willing to bear the sin of having an affair with a married man. He was going to make it if it wasn’t his mother-in-law threaten his mother’s imprisonment for disclosing closed information. So he denied poor Na In Jung who found herself pregnant and disgraced. Furthermore, before this the mad wife cut In Jung’s wrist which disable her from ever playing the cello again and she missed her opportunity for a music career in Paris.
Mad Wife does not stopped there and when she found out that In Jung is pregnant with Soo Hwan’s child, she made a huge scene that resulted in In Jung losing the child and in the same night her parents got into an accident which resulted her mother passing away and her father requiring full nursing care.
Five years later, I really do not understand why Joanne took her own life and wanted Yong Gi to be the first to find her. I think insanity runs through her. Anyway, he brought home her ashes and he bought an old school in some island. That same school was what In Jung had paid an earlier deposit for so she is able to lie there with her father. However, the agent conned her out of her deposit when Yong Gi paid in full for it.
In Jung went to ask Yong Gi to foot out the deposit she had paid earlier. Yong Gi just asked her to report it to the police. He had a changed of heart when he saw her with her father and realised that he wanted to help her by getting her to cook for the construction workers and helping him clean house too. This is the start of their petty arguments which I found it quite amusing to watch. Kindly note that Yong Gi commented In Jung is flat chested and there is basically nothing to look. I believe he later mentioned that Joanne was uite well endowed.
Of course earlier they had two or three chance meetings 5 years ago and both of them recalled those incidents. Yong Gi was surprised to see how much changes happened in In Jung’s life.
I would think that for our main couple, it is a time to let go of the past and embraced a new love. In Yong Gi, In Jung will find a man who will never leave her and with Yong Gi, being with In Jung means his nightmares have stopped. What is in store for our couple will not be an easy journey because Yong Gi is related to Soo Hwan and she is extremely fearful of his mad wife. I can hope they managed to stay strong to endure what may come. It is not going to be easy.
