All that glitters is not gold. However, in the age of materialism, people seem to be obsessed, more than ever, with anything that glitters, whether it be superficial beauty or unnecessary luxury goods. This drama tells a story of Han Seok-hoon, a genius cardiotoraic surgeon, whose motivation for success stemmed from fear that no one will want him unless he proves himself to be smart and successful. When his wealthy fiancé Min-hee suggests that her parents might not approve of him because he is an orphan raised by adoptive parents, he goes as far as to hire fake parents to attend the family meeting. However, an unfortunate incident leads to a series of misfortunes that leaves Seok-hoon with nothing, and he finally realizes the futility of wealth and fame he dedicated his life to. Having lost everything, Seok-hoon decides to start over and find what truly makes him happy.
@Lin, I dont know why the koreans look down on orphans, single mothers, divorcees and what have you. They are snobs of the worst kind. I dont know whether slapping and hitting people happens in only dramas ? OMG the noise they make slurping their noodles kill me.
The loan shark definitely had cosmetic surgeries done and not very good ones, that's why she looks scary. I feel sorry for the Geum family but I admire them (except the youngest nasty daughter) for being so closely knit.

@Janet I have been watching, It breaks my heart that orphans are a target of abuse by ignorant people. I think it's best to marry boys who have no parents, no stress whatsoever. That JS stepmother is an orphan herself, one would think she would sympathise with JS who lost a mum. And she wouldn't have been in that family had JS' mother been alive. She will always play second fiddle. Did that loan shark woman have something done to stretch the skin around her eyes making them look big, that's one weird face I have seen. It really looks weird as they just stare and flesh around the eyes seems to be sticking to the eyebrow lines. Very scary. Just feeling sorry for the Geum family.

@Lin, are you still watching this ? I am on episode 18 now and will continue as I find it interesting except for the talks-like-a-moving train woman loan shark who is very uncouth, very low class who thinks she is above everything else. OMG for her to look down on a surgeon and orphan with her own lowly background beats me !

@Lin, are you still around ? From your comments two days ago, it doesn't look as if you want to watch it. I will give episode 2 a try now. I will also check out the woman with an annoying voice & mannerism from The Promise ...

love this drama
Lin64 days ago
@Janet will try and give it a chance, but that woman who acted at that drama The Promise, I just find her voice and mannerisms do annoying, I know she is just acting, but her roles put me off any drama. There 3 characters who are just loud and boring really. Mind this drama has fit eye candies, Minsoo lookalike, tall handsome boys or man. Until the screaming old women come into the picture then everything goes South.
Janet64 days ago
@Lin, the guy who fell into the river looks a bit like Minsoo. Lol.
Janet64 days ago
@Lin, oh no if its going to be another typical daily drama with annoying characters, then I am out here. I will try a bit & see ... I see many negative comments already.
Lin65 days ago
@ Janet just realised the drama has annoying characters, I may skip this one maybe check blogs
Janet65 days ago
@Lin, I just found out this is another daily drama with 120 episodes. I have given up a few of them (except for Here Comes Love) as you may probably know and I am sure this one will be clichéd and go round and round in circles. Will try out some episodes first.
Lin65 days ago
@Janet, @ Anita, I really hope you are watching this one. It sounds promising with a lot of cliched episodes to follow.
