Eun Sung (Han Hyo Joo) was a kind-hearted girl who has everything, a loving father, a rich and happy family. But her step-mom, Baek Sung Hee (Kim Mi Sook) took away all her properities upon the death of her father and forced her to fend for herself while raising her real daughter ‘Seung Mi’ (Moon Chae Won) with great care.

Luckily for Eun Sung who has a talent in cooking, she was accepted to a food company ‘Honey combs’ which is owned by the SunWoo family (unknowing that SunWoo family and her family’s grandparents are friends).

But things are to get complicated for her when she starts working for them as both SunWoo Hwan (Lee Seung Gi), the successor to the food company and Park Jun Se (Bae Soo Bin), a Fusion restaurant owner with an upcoming arranged marriage to Woo Hwan’s younger sister “Woo Jung” (Han Ye Won) get attracted to her.   credit : Soompi

    one of the major reasons why I enjoyed this drama is because of bae soo bin, what an attractive actor, not to mention very talented. I totally love his junse! I would’ve chosen him, but well, love falls where you expect it the least i guess.
    the plot itself is not that groundbreaking but the fast pacing and character development make it standing out.

    This drama shows that evil motives will not succeed in the end…and those with pure heart will eventually brings out the light. This is an excellent drama and is highly recommended. Han Hyo Joo is a great actress and is definitely assured of a bright future in her career.
