The main character of this drama, Oh Hae-Young (Seo Hyun Jin) is an ordinary girl who likes to eat a lot and works in a catering department of a company. She was originally engaged to be married to Han Tae Jin. However, just one day prior to their wedding, Han Tae Jin got cold feet and decided to call off the wedding. As heart broken as she was, Hae Young agreed to call it off with one condition: Jin should announce it was she (Oh Hae Young) who made the decision to call off the wedding.
The news traveled fast and Oh Hae Young received a backlash, being blamed for the broken engagement by her family and to add insult to injury, her cynical manager also used it against her. Although she was extremely hurt and humiliated, she didn’t show it publicly and could only cry when she’s alone in her room, a total tearjerker moment!
Meanwhile, there is another Oh Hae Young. The other Oh Hae-Young is her polar opposite, she is incredibly beautiful and popular. Both Hae-Youngs attended the same school in the past and even then she always managed to outshine the main Hae-young. This pretty Oh Hae Young was supposed to be marrying a sound engineer, Do-Kyung, but she left him at the altar.
Do-Kyung was devastated, and in a drunken haze he heard the news of an Oh Hae-Young about to marry an entrepreneur. He mistook the woman (main Oh Hae Young) as his ex and ruined Jin’s business which later then forced Jin to lie and call off the wedding.
Being left by her fiance, the lives of main Oh Hae-Young was ruined. As she was struggling to come to terms with it, she accidentally bumped into Do-Kyung. As reserved as he is, Do-Kyung feels oddly comfortable being around Hae-Young. They start to open up and soon Do-Kyung realizes that he’s made a mistake and he’s the reason of her broken engagement. Feeling guilty, he tries so hard to avoid her even though his visions keep showing him their future together and he starts falling for her.
This critically-acclaimed drama ruled the chart with its high ratings. Originally planned for 16 episodes, seeing its exceptional success TvN network felt it was necessary to extend the drama for 2 additional episodes with 2 special episodes. The finale racked up the highest rating of 9.991%.
