Once a promising medical student, he now works as a bartender and gigolo, using women to get what he wants. When he meets the daughter of Jae Hee’s new husband, Eun Gi, he realizes he can use her to bring down the first love who betrayed him.
I've re-watched this drama about four times now. I absolutely love it. The storyline is beautifully cultivated with so much passion. The major aspect of the drama that really got me was the incredible acting. Song Joong Ki, Moon Chae Won, and Park Si Yeon are phenomenal. They really brought the characters to life and very well executed a moving, powerful, and emotion filled plot through their characters. The story itself is very interesting, and it really fits the melodrama type. Personally, melodramas are my favorite K-Dramas, I recommend this drama if you're interested in a "apply cold water to that burn" and "sophisticated and intriguing storyline" type of drama. Definitely on my top 10. I've been following K-Dramas for ten years now, and really, this was one of the most memorable dramas I've watched.
