Plot[edit]

Noh Soon-geum is a spunky young woman whose mother and grandmother worked as housemaids, and due to poverty, finds herself continuing the tradition. Her life reaches a turning point when she wins the lottery, with a pot money of ₩14 billion (US$13 million).[4]

Determined to keep her irresponsible father away from her money, Soon-geum stays on at her job and keeps her newfound wealth (stashed away in boxes and boxes of cash) a secret from the residents of her ritzy neighborhood, including her maid friends and her boss's irritable, disagreeable son Kang Gun-woo, with whom she shares a past. But as Soon-geum and Gun-woo later fall in love, her secret eventually gets revealed, and greed and betrayal mount in the neighborhood, from maids and masters alike.
