Description: Gun Wook (Kim Nam Gil) plots revenge against the Haeshin Group, a large corporation to whom Tae Sung (Kim Jae Wook) is the heir.
Better Than You'd Think.
The first few episodes start off slow, and that’s probably where most people lose the patience to continue. You get the whole garden variety of the generic Korean-tragic-drama/romance plot devices ranging from switched-as-a-kid-to-rich-family-and-then-kicked-out, to the instant death of parents, identities. And then you get the good’ole cookie-cutout characters like the vengeful mastermind, the poor girl working and kissing ass to survive, the spoiled rich son, the spoiled rich daughter, the lonely wife, the bit**y rich mom, the persistant police officer that keeps following his suspicions on a man on baseless evidence, etc. etc.
The thing is, though, with all these plot devices and character roles put together, and with a whole lot of lies, confusion, love/attraction, and the magic of K-drama coincidence, the whole thing starts to unravel very, very beautifully as the show progresses. If not beautifully, entertainingly.
And not to mention, the acting by the two male leads, Kim Nam Gil and Kim Jae Wook, both of whose tears that are shed in the drama combined could probably fill a small ocean. It’s also nice to see that every person in the story clearly has a major character flaw (unlike most dramas out there). The lead female role portrayed by Han Ga In has a nice selfish, hardheaded streak that stirs the story up. You get none of that, Oh-I’m-so-innocent,-Love-me! play.\\
All in all, you gotta be patient. Stick with it and you’ll find yourself emersed in the tangle of the plot. Ridiculous as things may be as you watch, it’s worth watching it for the end where either everything falls on the vengeful "Bad Guy" ‘s head or everything falls in place according to his plans..
