Storyline

A delightfully twisty inversion of the Cinderella story, Phoenix is about a woman who, by choosing to marry beneath her, falls from princess-status to peasant-status, and then rises again like the proverbial firebird. Lee Ji Eun defies her parents' wishes to marry poor student Jang Sae Hoon, but unable to handle the burdens of poverty, she later succumbs to her family's pressure and divorces him. Heartbroken, her husband leaves for the U.S., and the two don't see each other again until Sae Hoon returns to Korea as a wealthy, self-made businessman, and runs into her again, now a lowly domestic helper. Ji Eun, having experienced many humbling turns in life since he left, is struggling to keep herself and her family afloat, and finds that their roles have been reversed-but will Sae Hoon ever be able to forgive her? Can the ashes of their love turn back into a flame?

Breakfast at Tiffany's
19 August 2008 | by rosiepinkSee all my reviews

This series is cute. It is a soap opera so you have the usual plot complications, beautiful fashions, dramatic locations, and, of course, most importantly cute guys. The two main characters, Ji-Eun and Sae-Hoon, have different views of love, which is expressed when they see a painting of a phoenix. Ji-Eun believes love should be passionate and exciting. Sae-Hoon sees love as requiring sacrifice. Can two people with different views ever be happy with each other? Yet despite their contrasting characters, both are lonely until they meet and realize how much better life is when you have someone to share it with. There are many references to "Breakfast at Tiffany's" so I recommend watching that movie if you haven't seen it in a while.
