Song Hye Kyo as CHA SOO HYEON
" I seem to have everything"
CEO of Donghwa Hotel
A daughter of a politician cannot live freely. Every time her father went on a campaign, she had to wear a sash, greet, and sing. Smart and pretty Soo Hyun quickly became as famous as a celebrity. Like that, she went from being a daughter of an assemblyman to a daughter of the mayor of Seoul. Now, she is the daughter of the presidencial candidate party leader.
Soo Hyun became the wife of Taekyeong Group's son after graduating from college to fit into her mother's big picture of making her father as the next president. And now she is a woman divorced from a chaebol family.
On the day of her divorce, Soo Hyun felt like she smiled because she felt relieved. As alimony, she received 'Dongwha Hotel' which was a dying business. She clung to it madly and in 4 years, she made it into number 1 in hotel industry.
She wants to live as the CEO of Dongwha Hotel instead of an ex-wife of Taekyeong Group, but even after the divorce, her ex-in-laws' shadow loom over her like a tight leash. "When an unfortunate circumstance arises and tarnishes the image of Taekyeong Group, Dongwha Hotel will be returned to Taekyeong Group. All of this will be decided by the Board of Directors."
What would be an 'unfortunate circumstance'? Either way, that 'unfortunate circumstance' hasn't happened yet.
Park Bo Gum as KIM JI HYEOK
" I happen to have nothing!"
New Recruit of Donghwa Hotel
He has just one address under his resident registration number. Born in a house in Hongjaedong, he still lives in that house for the 29th year. And for just as long, Jin Hyeok's father has managed a fruit store in Hongjaedong. Taking after his parents, Jin Hyeok is kind and cares about his neighbors. Naturally he's adored by those in the marketplace and the neighborhood. The only thing is that he is smart, yet he hasn't found a job even though it has been a year since he graduated.
Honestly though, it is a bit unfair. He went to college a year earlier than others and graduated early with great grades. So he's not late at all in finding a job compared to those who are as old as him. Still, he has been playing for a whole year so there's nothing he can say.
As he prepared to get a job, Jin Hyeok consistently took part-time jobs. Grocery store warehouses to food section at department stores, you name it. He would pay his cellphone bills, use some on his commutes, and get a beer at Dae Chan's restaurant once in a while. He saved the rest of the money and went on a trip to Cuba for 4 weeks. Would Jin Hyeok ever get a chance to go on another long trip like this in his life? It's probably his last luxury. On the last night when he went around to photograph Cuba's beauty with an old film camera, he photographed her who was lost.
Jang Seung Jo as Jeong Woo Seok
"I have dated so many women in my whole life"
CEO of Tae Kyeong Group
Because he is the son of a chaebol, he met numerous women. Women who were dying to marry him. Women who clung on saying it would be nice to get their names on Woo Seok's family registry even it's only for a couple of days before a divorce.
Soo Hyun was different from those women. He liked her unreadable face. Elegant face that had a story. He thought she would grow to like him as they lived together. But does she not know such emotion as love? So he got divorced saying he has a woman he likes.
