Ironically, her husband, In Wook, who looks like a more than ideal husband, is an obsessive lunatic who is also violently abusive. When he pushes her too far, she reaches out for help from Jung Won, an honest, smart, handsome plastic surgeon. And when he agrees to help her escape from her husband's hands, they fall in love. But In Wook, who is consumed by his obsession for her, isn't going to let her get away from his grasp. Watch as these two characters struggle to stay on their arduous road to love.

What do I mean by this? In the beginning everything seemed ordered and to have a definitive direction. For about the second half of the show, I began to notice flaws, plot holes, and poor writing. The actors for the most part did a fantastic job and brought these characters to life. What I think is at fault here is the writing.
Actor Ryu Soo Young did such a fantastic job and I can't say this enough. In no way do I endorse his character, Kang In Wook and his behavior but I feel that this actor did the best job. This man deserves an award!!
Some things I would have liked to see were:
- Yoon Ma Ri with some strength, confidence and empowerment. I feel like an opportunity was missed here! Park Han Byul and Park Ha Na did a good job portraying her but I feel like there was no character development. To add insult to injury, there were moments where she made some seriously questionable decisions. This character clearly could have been more well written.
- More screen time with Woo Ha Kyung. For some reason I really liked this character because she was interesting and a perfect foil to Ma Ri. I wish they would have explored her backstory a bit more.
One final thing I will say is that the screenwriters could have made some smart choices in the writing of the script. Yes, they gave us a handsome hero, a damsel in distress, and a truly malevolent villain but it would have been a more attractive prospect for Ma Ri to find her own strength. I think she relied too much on the men around her.
