Pots of Gold (Hangul금 나와라, 뚝딱!; RRGeum Nawara, Ddookddak!; lit. I Summon You, Gold! or Gold, Appear!) is a 2013 South Korean television series starring Han Ji-hye, Yeon Jung-hoon,[1] Lee Tae-sung, Lee Soo-kyung, Baek Jin-hee, Park Seo-joon and Kim Hyung-jun. It aired on MBC from April 6 to September 22, 2013 on Saturdays and Sundays at 20:40 for 50 episodes.[2]

The drama explores love, marriage and divorce through a case of mistaken identity, while making good-humored fun of a middle class family and their pretensions.[3]

Plot[edit]

Mong-hee and Yoo-na are two different women who look exactly the same, so much so they could be twins. Mong-hee is a cheerful and hardworking street vendor who sells accessories and dreams of becoming a jewelry designer. On the other hand, Yoo-na is the cold daughter-in-law of a wealthy chaebol family.

Yoo-na has just gone through a divorce with Park Hyun-soo. Hyun-soo's parents own a jewelry company, which he is due to inherit as the eldest son. But his younger brother Hyun-joon wants the CEO position for himself, and he schemes to gain control of the family business, along with his wife, Sung-eun, a successful jewelry designer.

When Hyun-soo meets Mong-hee, he gets a real chance to find love and happiness. But the fact that she looks exactly like his ex-wife might become a problem, as he asks her to pose as his wife.
