Synopsis / Brief:
Lee Soo-jung is an orphan who works as a tour guide in Bali. She has a useless brother that constantly gets into trouble and needs her to bail him out all the time. She struggles to make ends meet and aspires to be rescued out of her current predicament by a rich & wealthy man.

Jung Jae-min is the youngest son of the wealthy Chairman of the Pax Group. He is uninterested in business, irresponsible, arrogant, childish, self-centered and a playboy. He is engaged to Choi Young-joo, who comes from a comparable wealthy and powerful family. Both Jae-min and Young-joo are not in love with each other and continues to see other people. Young-joo in turn is still in love with her ex-boyfriend Kang In-wook whom she left so that she can be engaged to Jae-min (as per arranged by both parents). Kang In-wook comes from a broken family, his parents are divorced and his mother opens a small restaurant.

The forbidden relationship that grows with Jae-min and eventually In-wook’s feelings with Soo-jung continues to create dischord and eventually leads to the climactic showdown between the three star-crossed lovers.
