I don’t like dramas with kids, cause I don’t like kids. Marriage life, work problems, scheming, Mishil references, and most of all – true masterpieces by some of the actors here, all these just took over me.
A romantic comedy that revolves around the life of a thrifty housewife who overcomes the setbacks in her life. She once believed that marrying a man she loved would bring all the happiness she could ever want in life. However, after facing a string of obstacles just to marry her boyfriend, she finds that married life is not a bowl of cherries. Nothing in life turns out the way she imagined it would. All she wanted was a steady paycheck, a reasonable mortgage that she and her husband could afford, happy children, and a devoted husband. But life has a way of throwing curve balls at you and so it goes. Unexpected events in her life push her and her family to the brink. But after hitting the pits, she rises to emerge stronger than ever.

Baek Yeo-jin (Actress Chae Jeong-an, Ages: 32 and 37) – Junior manager / Team Leader
People who know her call her a “fox,” and she’s quite clever and cunning to boot. Her mother was a mistress of a wealthy man and she was the lovechild born from that relationship. She never met her father and doesn’t even know his name. This instills her with deep inferiority issues, making her extremely competitive in whatever she does. Yet, she could never beat Tae-hee in school exams.
So she got revenge by always stealing any guys that Tae-hee dated, and yet that still was not enough to quell her animosity towards Tae-hee.
She even applied for a job at the company where Tae-hee was working to make her life miserable. Joon-soo turns out to be a special friend who is utterly devoted to her.

He develops a renegade attitude and creates problems due to his rebellious behavior.
He has a habit of telling flat jokes to defuse awkward situations but those attempts only draw Tae-hee’s ire.
