Brief Synopsis

An Interesting Story, a Pleasant Drama. This is a story of the love and success of Soon-jin who is poor, but always optimistic about her life. Soon-jin's story will remind the viewers that true happiness depends on one's mindset. It also shows us the great power of love. Combining the good qualities of both Italian and Korean dishes, a character finds success in the restaurant business and even expands the business abroad. Through Soon-jin's family, the drama also emphasizes the importance of family in our lives. Unlike a typical Cinderella story, the viewer will witness Soon-jin using her every effort to become the best. The Story of a Cinderella who doesn’t wait for her Prince Charming. The story of a beautiful and lucky woman who becomes a Cinderella by luck neither interests the viewers anymore, nor does it encourage them to work hard to improve their lives on their own. This drama is the story of a woman who chooses to take control in her life instead of waiting for Prince Charming to change her life for her. Oh Soon-jin. She doesn't have anything. But she's always hopeful and confident about herself.And Kang Sae-han. He has everything that an average person can ask for. But he doesn't believe in love.
