A Rich Comedy With Some Drama and Tragedy Thrown In
Four young ladies who are the best of friends have just graduated from college and try to find careers and success in their life. Each of them are different and they each have various obstacles to overcome in pursuit of their goals. "Yoo Min" (Eun-Hye Yun) wants to be a writer and has found a job but is frustrated that she isn't being productively employed. "Hye-Ji" (Han-Byeol Park) has rich parents, is very beautiful and becomes a famous model and actress which causes some jealousy among her friends because they believe everything has been handed to her on a silver platter. "Soo-Jin" (Ye-Ryeon Cha) is also pretty but she comes from a poor family and unlike Hye-Ji she has to struggle (and face rejection along the way) as an actress. "Min-Hee" (In-Na Yoo) has moderately wealthy parents but she struggles through their divorce which also causes a financial hardship on her. At any rate, this is a rich comedy with some drama and tragedy thrown in for good measure as well. The acting is good and in some ways shines a light on Korean culture and attitudes for those few people who are allowed to go to college without realizing how hard the real world actually is.
