My Fair Lady (Hangul요조숙녀; RRYojo Sungnyeo) is a 2003 South Korean television drama produced and first broadcast by SBS. It has a total of 16 episodes, and is a remake of the 2000 Japanese drama Yamatonadeshiko (やまとなでしこ), which aired on Fuji Television.[1]


Min-kyung,is a fresh high school graduate. She has worked in a liquor restaurant to pay off her father's gambling debt. However, Min-kyung borrowed some money and ran away, hoping to find a rich man as her spouse.

Young-ho's father observed his diligence and decided to give Young-ho a chance to prove his worth in comparison with Dong-kyu. Young-ho's father announced that there would be a fair competition from the two men to prove their worth and decide the heir to the company.

That same night, Young-ho's father met Min-kyung's father. Dong-kyu's father, who was drunk, knocked down the duo as they were talking to each other and crossing the road. Dong-kyu was seen rushing and persuaded his father to escape while he called for an ambulance.

Dong-kyu used this opportunity to gain advantage over Young-ho in the competition to become the heir, with his father's help. Young-ho, on the other hand, was having a hard time struggling to compete against Dong-kyu and his acts of sabotage.

Young-ho was shocked when he saw his father at the meeting. Young-ho was declared to be the heir of the company and both Dong-kyu and his father announced their resignations.

Young-ho instead wished to fulfill his long-time dream of becoming an astronomer and announced his intention of resigning as boss in order to become a full-time astronomer, after working for a few months. With the consent of his father, Young-ho took up astronomy at a space observation centre in Australia. He later married Min-kyung, and was seen swearing their wedding vows in front of a Christian priest.
