Eun-seong is studying overseas in New York when she is suddenly called back to Korea by her dad just 2 years into her studies. Meanwhile, Sun-woo Hwan is also ordered to return to Korea by his grandmother after studying abroad for 3 years in which he hardly studied. Koh Pyeong-jung, who is Eun-seong’s father, struggles to save his company from going bankrupt. One day, his wallet is stolen by a thief along with his ID and credit cards. The thief subsequently dies in a gas explosion accident and the police, upon finding Koh Pyeong-jung’s wallet on him, mistakenly identify him as Koh. So a death certificate for Koh Pyeong-jung is promptly issued. Koh decides to lay low and not tell his family that he is alive to keep the creditors at bay for the time being. But his second wife who is Eun-seong’s stepmother, collects the insurance money that is paid out from his life insurance policy and then kicks out her stepchildren Eun-seong and Eun-woo while moving into a new home with her daughter Seung-mi. Eun-seong asks for assistance from her boyfriend Hyung-jin who turns her down. Soon after her brother Eun-woo, who is mentally retarded, goes missing. While searching for her brother, Eun-seong works as a waitress at a nightclub and meets Joon-sae, a friend of her former boyfriend. Joon-sae helps Eun-seong as much as he can. A year later, Eun-seong is still looking for her brother and decides to transfer to a Korean college. So she quits her waitress job and starts selling dumplings to make enough money to pay for her tuition. Meanwhile, Jang Sook-ja, the founder of a food company, becomes deeply disappointed in her grandson Hwan who has no direction in his life. So to gather her thoughts on what to do about her grandson, she visits her old neighborhood in the poor section of the city where she encounters Eun-seong who is selling dumplings. She hears about Eun-seong’s hardships and immediately sees that Eun-seong is an honest, hardworking person with a heart made of gold. So to test Eun-seong’s mettle, she moves in with her for a month, sharing a tiny room. Afterwards, Jang Sook-ja makes up her mind to appoint Eun-seong as the heir of her food company and brings her home...
