Since childhood, her life has been entangled with two opposite-personalities brothers from poor fisherman family, Han Kwang Hoon and Kwang Chul.
She is a charming woman who has lived furious days. With genius brain, pretty looks and clean soul, she never give up righteousness, clean-hand-in-her-works, and human-rights under the corrupted big political power.

Single daughter of General Chun Taewoong. She went abroad for study. But its real purpose was running away from Korea. During her study, her major changed many times.
Though she looks like princess who has everything, actually, her soul is lonely and empty.
Daughter of Prime minister. She received love form big businessman, Chairman Son, such as his step-daughter. As she is pretty internally and outwardly, she is like a forever-girl.
He is a man of national-secret-intelligence-bureau. He is a master-of-election. His nickname is “King-maker”. If he nominates and supports, that politician surely becomes a President.
He is a cruel man who does not care any sacrifice for political power.
