Cheon Hae-ju (Actress: Han Ji-hye)
She possesses natural confidence along with a sunny disposition. With an infectious curiosity, she has an enormous positive outlook on life.

Gang-san (Actor: Kim Jae-won)
He is a friend of Chang-hee and the grandson of the founder of Haepoong Group. Growing up with a silver spoon in his mouth, he was always cheerful and full of energy. He has a photographic memory that serves him well in the interests he pursues. He had a crush on Hae-ju just like his friend Chang-hee. After spending 15 years abroad, he returns to South Korea and is reunited with Hae-ju, and the old feelings he had for her return once again. Hae-juís charm and bubbly personality gradually melts Gang-sanís heart.

He chooses the daughter of the Cheonji chairman over Hae-ju as his wife in order to become rich and end his parentís miserable life. This leads to him being on the opposite side in the rivalry between Cheonji Group and Haepoong Group where Hae-ju and Gang-san work alongside each other...
