My Rating: ♥♥♥.5/5

This drama was the first Korean drama I've ever watched! This series doesn't typically follow the sappy, comical romance of the other dramas I've reviewed. It's actually quite moody and depressing...but saved because of some scenes with great acting. That said, there is a lot of over-acting, crying, and melodramatic music.

The entire drama follows a loose interpretation of the story of Cinderella. There is an evil stepmother, a stepsister and a "Cinderella." Now throw the fairytale story into the modern world and you have a perfect drama filled with lies, revenge, jealousy and one-sided love. But like all the other dramas, it can get slow and the characters frustrating. And the one character I like dies!!!

Basic Synopsis: Eun Jo grew up on the run with a gold-digging mother. It's not until her mother meets the father of young girl Goo Hyu Sun and marries him does Eun Jo start to realize how evil her own mother is. Eun Jo is dark, unfriendly and out-of-place in her new home where her stepsister, Hyu Sun, is adored, worshipped and spoiled. The family business is making traditional wine and the sisters grow up with the dramas of betrayal and happiness in love and business.
