Choi Kang Joo (Lee Hong Ki) is his father’s firstborn son, and the heir to the Taeyang Group, South Korea’s most affluent family-run conglomerate.
However, a strange curse has afflicted Choi Kang Joo’s family for the past century: The wife of Taeyang’s heir-apparent always dies shortly after the nuptials are complete!
Regardless, Choi Kang Joo’s family has arranged for him to marry into another wealthy family. His bride will be the scheming, demanding and cold-hearted Jang Yi Kyung (Yang Jin Sung).
But chaos strikes when Jang Yi Kyung vanishes in the lead-up to the wedding. The family convinces Na Doo Rim (also played by Yang Jin Sung) to take her place. Na Doo Rim is a warm-hearted young woman from a humble, rural family who just happens to look exactly like Jang Yi Kyung.
Things get even messier for all involved when Choi Kang Joo falls head-over-heels in love for the kind, loving Na Doo Rim – threatening to derail the carefully laid plans of the Choi and Jang families!
Where is Jang Yi Kyung? What will happen if she returns? Will the Choi family’s curse ever be lifted? And can Choi Kang Joo and Na Doo Rim really live happily ever after?
“Bride of the Century” is a 2014 South Korean drama series directed by Yun Sang Ho.
