In the biblical sense, this drama’s foundation is based upon the story of Cain and Abel. Cain was a farmer while Abel was a shepherd, and in short, rooted in jealousy, Cain ends up killing his brother Abel…

In this drama, Lee Cho-In (So Ji-Sup) most resembles Abel in that he is sincere, loved by his father, and is a successful doctor. His older brother, Lee Sun-Woo (Shin Hyun-Joon), will take the characteristics of a jealous Cain. It is through this relationship where the jealousy of love, acknowledgment, and even one another’s love for a woman that sparks this drama.

A hospital owner is killed in a car accident and his pregnant wife falls into a coma. His partner and friend adopts the baby who is raised in an incubator. The baby grows up with the son of his foster parents, who are now the sole owners of the hospital. The two brothers grow up to become prominent neurosurgeons.

Despite the brotherly affection between the two boys whilst growing up, Seon-u’s affection for his younger brother turns into bitter jealousy when he realizes his father’s desire to hand over the management of the hospital to his adopted younger brother, Cho-in. This jealousy runs out of control when he realizes that Cho-in has also stolen the heart of his love, Seo-yeon. Seon-u plans the murder of his younger brother and pays a killer to do the job. Miraculously surviving the attempted murder, Cho-in plans on his own revenge.
