Jung Ji-oh (Hyun Bin) and Joo Joon-young (Hye-Kyo) were both professional drama producers. Even though they followed the same career path, they still had very different backgrounds and temperaments. Jung Ji-oh is full of charisma, firm, and came from a low-income family. Behind his harsh appearance, he’s a very understanding person. Whereas with Joon-young, she’s from a rich family, is full of confidence, and she’s a producer who’s swift and agile. Despite her advantages, she has one major weakness as a person. She lacks empathy and doesn’t connect well with other people.
This drama is about the two producers who fight for love. Before they became producers, they studied in the same place. During college, Jung Ji-oh and Joo Joon-young dated for a while but eventually broke up. The first reason they broke up was because Joon-young’s parents disagreed with their daughter dating a poor man, Jung Ji-oh. The other reason was because of Joon-young’s manners.
