Production Credits


Kim Joo Hee is Suh Jung Ho's secretary who tragically lost her parents 5 years ago in a car accident. Her sister Kim See Hee is paralysed from the accident and Joo Hee's fiance abandoned her after the accident to go to the US. He just happened to be Yoon Suk Ki who has returned and now works temporarily at the same law firm where Kim Joo Hee and Suh Jung Ho work, to be part of a big money laundering case involving the Korean underworld. Suk Ki represents the bad guys (headed by one nasty old man Hong) who are trying to stop investigations into the case while Suh Jung Ho is the morally upright lawyer who was sacked from his Deputy public prosecutor's job for conducting unauthorised investigations into the same case, some years ago. Much of the show revolves around the triangle: Suh Jung Ho who is married to a neurotic, childless alcoholic for much of the show; Yoon Suk Ki who is engaged to a violinist Debbie but is fooling around with his temporary secretary cum informer Yang Ha-Young ;and Kim Joo Hee who is secretly in love with her boss but at the same time cannot let go of her feelings for her old love Yoon Suk Ki. She could not accept that he had left her on his own free will. So as to stop the investigation into money laundering, Suk Ki makes use of the others to remove old files belonging to Jung Ho. But mistakes made by him and his driver cum protege Tommy complicate matters, resulting in Suk Ki framing Joo Hee for selling information. In helping the clueless Joo Hee through her tribulations, Jung Ho realises that he too loves her. But why does Suk Ki get her off the hook after framing her? While Jung Ho struggles between his principles and love for Joo Hee, Suk Ki tries to keep the terrifying reason for him abandoning Joo Hee and Joo Hee searches for her answer. Finally, she gets it but it does not bring her the closure that she has been looking for. Suk Ki proves his undying love and Jung Ho accepts that his principles are less important. The ending looks as if there will be a sequel...a gripping sweet story.
