Hyeong-woo is a man who lives for revenge, as he vows to take revenge against those who drove his father to death when he was still a teenager.
Despite facing a cruel fate, where she is framed for crimes she did not commit and left a widow after her husband dies at a young age, Eun-soo proves to be a strong woman as she strives on to be a good single mother to her young daughter.
Initially known by the name Sang-yi, Il-joo was born to her father's mistress. After her foster mother's death, II-joo is brought under the care of Hyeong-woo's family, who raise her as a close relative.
