And as the women realize the path they were going on, they start leading the fight to find themselves back. Seo He Soo used to be one of the top actresses in the country before she gave up everything to ‘settle’ and have a family.
Here Comes The Twist…
Seo He Soo went on to marry the second son of Hyo Won Group. And while she does her best to fit in with the elite family, her in-laws never leave a chance to make her feel like an outsider. Overcoming all the problems, her new chosen life throws at her, every day, Seo He Soo stands smiling with her back straight and beaming with all the confidence she has as she tries not to lose herself among the problems she’s been facing. On the other side, Jung Seo Hyun is Seo He Soo’s sister-in-law. Equally ambitious, she is married to the first and elder son of the Hyo Won Group.
But what makes her different from Seo He Soo is that she herself comes from an elite family. Being a daughter of a chaebol family, Jung Seo Hyun is rational and elegant. She knows how to behave in the family as she has been in one. The battle between the two starts. Both of them, coming from different but hard-working backgrounds, fight for the same place and respect in the family.
