This is another drama where the summery/description does not do it justice. I have passed over this show several times for that fact alone, until now. Once I started watching, I didn't stop until it was over. At only eight episodes it is relatively short by most drama standards, but I think it makes up for that by having a story that fits perfectly in that time frame. The cast was really amazing and I found their acting to be quite believable with only a few annoyances from some of the supporting cast members. The flow of the story was really good as well, giving you the highs and lows that are a must for a good drama. This is not a classical Cinderella story, so if you think it's about an older man and a younger girl falling in love, then think again. She is Cinderella in a figurative sense, not actual, and she meets someone that can change her life. So if you enjoy a story where characters seem to grow and change as the story comes along then I recommend this drama. You will not be bored or disappointed.
