Synopsis:
Janghwa is the woman who gets everyone’s attention and love with her gorgeous appearance. She had a perfect marriage and enjoys her luxurious life. She only concerns and cares about herself, and she’s not changed after she got married. Hongryeon, the deprived single mother, has a dream of having a happy family of her own, but this modest hope is not easy for her. Nevertheless, Hongryeon is an energetic and optimistic person who lives her life to the fullest. The two very contrary women confront each other, as Janghwa abandons the mother-in-law and Hongryeon starts to look after her.
Years ago, both women were involved in a fatal car accident. Janghwa was the one driving and the protagonist who cuased the accident, which also took away someone's life.
When the car accident happened, Hongryeon was unconscious, so the scheming Janghwa drag Hongryeon onto the driver seat and make it all appear as if Hongryeon was the one who caused the accident via drunk driving.
Hongryeon in her unconcious state cannot remember what happened at all, and really thought she was the one who caused the accident. She was sentenced to a few years of jail for drunk driving.
Years after, Hongryeon and Janghwa met again and what will happened when Hongyreon eventually found out the cruel truth?

I'm still watching this drama (ep70 to be exact) and loving it. I really want Tae Yoon to find out that Janghwa abandoned his mother. Can't wait to see him kick that B to the curb.

It's so cathartic to see Janghwa, who manipulated and lied her way to a position of power and excess, falling hard on her face. She can take her parents, boy-toy, and that head security guy with her.
I'm going to watch ep 105 next. I don't know what the writers are going to do with the next 40 some episodes, hopefully it'll keep up the same pace of suspense. I really like this drama.

hmmm.... I guess all the "mysteries" were resolved. But it's really how the story is going to turn out that's got me hooked. Like from the get go, we know Janghwa was the one that hit and ran, but watching how that's exposed is part of the fun.

I'm now on ep 119:


Edit: wow. it's been a little over a week and I'm done with this drama.
