Although things seem to have turned the better for the cynical Eun-Ju, she immediately faces problems when she meets her new step-sister Hyo-Seon.

Furthermore, Eun-Ju’s mother also seems to have fallen for the charismatic personality of Hyo-Seon.
Making matters worse for Eun-Ju, Hyo-Seon seems to like Eun-Ju’s prince Ki-Hoon. Eun-Ju decides then and there to take matters in her own hands and exact revenge on her Cinderella like stepsister …
The story is really good! I just love how things are unexpected in this drama. Seriously, I had to think over and over to understand how this “unusual” story is. Also, it took me time to understand that the beginning of the story was the “8 years before”.
I don’t understand how these girls could look like 15 years older when they are actually 23-25 years old. Okay, actually Seo Woo just has a total baby face. Both acting are fantastic, but I just find Moon Geun Young’s acting incredible, her facial expressions are hard to imitate! It such a rare thing that the girl is cold and the guy is open. That’s maybe a new trend… XD. Also, it’s really sad how her relationship with her stepsister is awful, but we can’t forget that it was still all caused by Eun Jo…
The lead actor doesn’t seem very handsome in the pictures, but he’s actually quite charismatic, just look at the trailer yourself. Also, after the 8 years, he didn’t change at all. He might have a different haircut, but that’s it! As for the supporting male actor, Taecyeon, he’s just irresistible and adorable. The first four episodes of the drama was when the girls were in high school.The actresses where all the same, they just looked younger. However, Taecyeon is just too tall and too mature, so there was another actor to cast him in a younger person. However, I was just LMAO when I discovered who he really was.
I just don’t like the feeling I have when I see the mother, she just reminds me of the awful stepmother from Shining Inheritance… Both are great liars, and I don’t like liars. And I just don’t understand how the father could be manipulated so easily, so smarter! He’s such a nice man and I pity him to be with that kind of woman. However, as a drama, she gets better and less… bad?…
Also, the wine factory was very interesting, but it gets redundant. Sometimes, it’s really boring. Actually, I think that twenty episodes are too long. They should have cut some of the wine factory problems and do it as a normal drama, which means: 16 episodes. But I mean, seriously, these money problems are really too much and the last episodes were waaay too draggy. I almost wanted to stop watching it.
The theme song is wonderfuulll just go check the trailer! (But the trailer is not the real story… It’s a “fake”)
