Penthouse is divided into three very entertaining seasons. The first season entails Shim Su Ryeon (Lee Ji-ah), whose husband is the shady Joo Dan Tae, played by Uhm Ki Joon. But their marriage is far from perfect since Joo Dan Tae is hiding something from Shim So Ryeon.
Oh Yoon Hee, who is played by Eugene, is someone who is not rich. She is humble and lives a simple life, but for the sake of her children, she wants to climb the social ladder. Cheon Seo-jin (Kim So Yeon) is a famous soprano whose father has been the head of Cheong-ah Arts School since high school. Oh Yoon Hee and Cheon Seo Jin get embroiled in a love triangle with Ha Yoon Cheol, played by Yoon Jong Hoon.
