Storyline

Overweight, kind-hearted Sa Geum-ran (Ha Jae-sook) married into a well-to-do family, but her husband Lee Kang-joon (Jung Gyu-woon) has spent the past seven years in the United States for his business, and she lives with his mother and sisters who treat her badly. Geum-ran learns that Kang-joon has been having an affair with sophisticated broadcast announcer Gyo Chae-yeon (Wang Ji-hye), and he asks for a divorce.

Totally engaging story
30 December 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I fallen head over heels for this drama. Needless to say about the lead actors - Joo Sang Wook did an outstanding role in this drama and Han Ye Seul complemented him with her role unimaginably distinctive.

This drama is best example of "Rom-Com" Genre. Very interesting story plot and screenplay. There is twist after every couple of episodes. This drama totally captivated me. Joo Sang Wook is phenomenal in this drama. It is definitely worth watching for him.

The plot keeps you engaging and the chemistry between the lead pair is top notch. The script is very unpredictable and the screenplay have interesting classy elements that makes the show unique and worth watching.
