There is a proverb mentioning a slim probability of the riches to go to the heaven.
People say that good-natured people live poorly.
To survive in a tough world, sometimes you need to be selfish and measure your own interests with your mental calculator. You should know how to betray others saying that there is nothing you can do. Living a life means you should be snobbish as mush as others.
As we grow up, without any special intensive courses, we naturally learn how to be snobbish. Amidst lots of people, we live a life of our own 'very well.' However, when bumping onto the persons who are so native and innocent to follow only one path with perseverance, we are worried about them on one hand, but feel happy on the other hand because such people still live around us.
We want to cheer them instead of competing against them.
Maybe it is because we are nostalgic about something that we have forgotten for a long time and feel a sense of guilt.
Here is one of such persons.
He is not well educated and doesn't have much belongs.
He thinks seniority is more important than social status or positions.
He never puts others in trouble on behalf of his interests.
He is willing to give up on his life for the love he blindly pursues.
He is a young man like fresh fish just caught from the water.
However, he is thrown to the management room of a corporation which is one of the coolest places in the world.
He is surrounded by the group of people who know the rule of survival of the fittest very well.
In the situation, how will he survive and stand tall over his rivals?
How can he win his love for which he is willing to give up on his life?
We want to see his ordeal, while crying, laughing and cheering together.
This drama is picturing a mythology where an innocent person can clench success.

The male leading character is looked down on by the so-called intellectuals who have a calculating mind and are keen to securing their interest. Actually he doesn't show remarkable achievements. However, he is perseverant and good at riding over challenges. With the main character, the drama is aimed to appeal to and be supported by the less educated and the lower-income class.

Instead of making the viewers serious and think hard, it is aimed to be an upbeat drama, making the audience smile on their face while watching it.
The drama wants to tell a story of love which knows putting others first.
Love is to make the other person really happy. Love is to know when to let go of the people you love instead of possessing them.
The conventional way of story development is not followed by this drama. The conflicts of characters and variations will lead the story to move forward. It is a young and colorful drama.
