Song Eun Jo and her mother have always been moving around, they survive with the money of the mother's men. Then one day the mother meets a man whose daughter wants her as her mother because she lost her mother when she was a child and cause the man owns a rice wine fabric and got money the mother thinks its a great opportunity for them so she agrees to get married with the man. Eun Jo's new stepsister is like really crazy about her like "unni, unni, unni.." all the time. And Eun Jo hates it so she is like being mean to her all the time and tries to push her away but she doesnt give up until Eun Jo pretends to steal the guy she likes at their school. In the mean time Eun Jo is developing feelings for a young guy Ki Hoon who works at the fabric for her stepfather. But she's a girl that doesnt really show feelings and people see her as cold, but the guy is being nice to her, he is also the girl's home tutor. Anyway the guy goes of to serve army duty and Eun Jo then tries to run away but her stepfather is like the nicest man and he convinces her to stay. Then 8 years pass and they get a little brother.. Eun Jo has become a woman who's like got really great education and is successful and the fabric is all doing really well and but there are still problems within the family especially between the two sisters. Then Ki Hoon comes back and he asks Eun Jo why didnt she stop him from going, and didnt she get his letter(her stepsister hid it). But Eun Jo is ignoring him and pretending like she doesnt even know him. And then Jung Woo (taec) comes to work at the fabric too. Eun Jo doesnt recognize him at first but then she finds out and Jung Woo he is like really hardworking cause he wants Eun Jo to be with him so he is like always helping her and being there for her. Then the fabric gets lots of problems and the father gets sick and they all get sick and problematic and the problems never stop and everything is like GAAAAAH! I dont wanna expose the whole thing so ill end it here or... yeah.

This is one of those really sad dramas. It like gets really complicated. And i like sad dramas but not that sad. Hahahah or well. Its okay that its sad but i dont like loong sad dramas (yes 20 is long for me) i guess i've gotten use to those really short Japanese dramas. Korean dramas are in my opinion reaaally complicated like.. aiyaa.. And this girl Eun Jo she like cant express her feelings so we get nowhere. The whole drama is about her and her stepsister's relationship and how the finally gives in and actually acts nice to her and then again its only because she starts feeling sorry for her because their mother was only nice to her because of her father's money but later on the father isnt there so she gets really mean. I think it was a bit to much, it took really long for them to get close to each other but i guess that's just wht the whole drama is about. Other than that its really good and like REALLY emotional. Its definitely one of those good korean dramas and its one of those u gotta watch. And its a good idea.. like seeing it from 'cinderella''s sister's point of view. A totally different story than the original cinderella. And actually the main character is my favorite korean actress. MmmHm! And not to mention taec. Now im not a big fan of him. But what u see in the drama aint bad! :P But at first i didnt like the guy Ki Hoon AT ALL! not until like.. the end. Mayb like,, when Eun Jo started accepting him then i did too, haha.

Bunji's Verdict
I honestly promised myself never to watch this drama, mainly because I knew it was one of the heaviest dramas ever made, and I wasn’t into the entire Cinderella’s sister thing. But after watching Glory Jane, I had to watch Chun Jung Myung’s drama again, he’s kind a lovable. And I didn’t mind Moon Geun Young at all, so why not?
Tbh, it really is one heavy cry after cry drama; it’s to the point of you getting depressed! Like if I would’ve gotten paid for every single crying scene, I wouldn’t need a job, ever! And you know those leads where you just feel like shaking them so hard just to make some freaking progress? Yup, I felt like that every 5 minutes. I have to admit though, I really enjoyed the sister rivalry; the showdowns were brilliant! And there were times when I liked the supporting actress more, but honestly they were both so freaking annoying!
Hmm, on the other hand, this drama has EVERYTHING, from an amazing script, amazing actors to amazing screenplay and realistic people… Like even Cinderella got fed up :P hehe.. 
If you are wondering about Taec, well, I don’t really remember his character, only when he would salute :/
