parents close relationship gave them the feeling of being brother
and sister as youngsters. As the only son of a wealthy executive
of Global Group, Song-ju went abroad to study management. Before
leaving, the two childhood friends exchanged necklaces.

After suddenly losing his wife to illness, Jeong-seo’s father
remarries Tae Mi-ra. For no reason Mi-ra’s daughter Yu-ri seems
to dislike Jeong-seo from the very beginning and is often cruel
to her. During this time of cruel treatment, Jeong-seo is in a
serious car accident, resulting in memory loss.

She remembers nothing of her childhood friend, Song-ju and is
unexpectedly reunited with him. The four young main characters

different ways of expressing love, making each character unique.

Cha Song-ju (Kwan Sangwoo) – More on actor Kwon

Managing department stores, theme parks and more, Cha
Song-ja’s character is a skilled businessman. While his true love
and talent lie in playing the piano, being the only son a top
executive left no choice but to follow in his father’s footsteps,
leaving the piano merely as a hobby. Infatuated with Jeong-seo,
he only plays for her.

The two have many similarities; both are left-handed, have the
same blood type, and enjoy theme parks. Moreover, the two seem to
have telepathy; when one is in pain the other also feels some
kind of pain.

Han Jeong-seo (Choi Ji Woo) – More on actress Choi

Han Jeong-su is the only daughter of Han Gyo-su, who is in the
construction field. Jeong-seo has dreams of being a pianist, but
ends up working at Global Group. Her mother died suddenly and her
once simple yet happy home life became a distant
memory.Circumstances beyond her control would lead her to hide
her illness from others and continue to put others first, her
kind-natured character always shining through. Difficulties at
home with her stepmother and cruel treatment from her stepsister
created an environment that made her bear the burden of her
illness alone. Jeong-seo has a gentle exterior, but a tough
spirit. She loves only Song-ju and waits for him.

Han Tae-hwa (Shin Hyeon-joon)

Han Tae-hwa is Tae Mi-ra’s son, Yu-ri’s older brother, and
most recently Jeong-seo’s step- brother who is working as an
artist. Tae-hwa takes little interest in others. His quiet,
introverted nature adds to his mystique and makes his rugged
appearance that much more attractive. He is highly self-conscious
and has a tendency to approach a tough situation with a fist
rather than with words, yet he is highly sympathetic.His life is
filled with hatred towards the mother that abandoned him, Tae
Mi-ra. He has the sad fortune of falling in love with Jeong-seo,
who becomes the forbidden fruit as his stepsister.

of Jeong-seo, Han yu-ri is working as a director at Global Group.
She graduated with a master’s degree in management from New York
University. Yu-ri’s charming and beautiful appearance mask this
double-faced girl who is out to get what she wants at any

She can’t stand Jeong-seo, who is in the way of her getting
the man that she wants, Song-ju. There is nothing stopping her
evil nature.
