Synopsis

Song Eun-jo, who lives with her mother since years ago (and also her mother’s lover), finally gets a new family and a home when her mother remarries to a kind man who owns a winery. At first, she denied it, and even attempted to escape rather than dealing with the attempt of being schooled. The cynical Eun-jo is unable to accept the affection of her new step-sister Hyo-seon and step father Gu Dae-seong. Hyo-seon, with her bright character, is the apple in her father’s eyes and Eun-jo’s mother goes out of her way to fulfill the role of Hyo-seon’s mother, causing her to neglect and act harshly towards Eun-jo. However, Eun-jo finds a friend in Hong Ki-hoon, a college student working at the winery who becomes her own prince. Ki-hoon eventually leaves to take care of personal issues, but Hyo-seon’s jealousy of Eun-jo causes her to make Eun-jo believe that he has abandoned her. The three reunite 8 years later to begin the main plot – a modern adaptation of Cinderella with a twist. Han Jeong-woo, a boy that Eun-jo considered her little brother 8 years ago, appears in order to be near her and fulfills the role of a “fairy godmother” to her. A love triangle forms when Hyo-seon falls for Ki-hoon, who is still in love with Eun-jo. The feeling of betrayal lasts with Eun-jo, creating misunderstandings and difficulties. However, the kindness of Eun-jo’s stepfather (Gu Dae-seong, Hyo-seon’s father) begins to change everyone’s lives, making this a tale of growth and redemption.
