The plot of the Korean adaptation has been sourced from Soompi: About three sisters with a close bond who grew up in poverty. Kim Go Eun plays the eldest sister Oh In Joo, who wants to protect her family with money. Nam Ji Hyun takes on the role of the second sister Oh In Kyung, a news reporter who does not want to bow down to money and aims to always do what’s right.

Nam Ji Hyun has been acting in k-dramas and movies since the age of 11 years old, but arguably the biggest role she is known for is Hong Shim and Yoon Yi Seo in the beloved romantic comedy series 100 Days My Prince. Park Ji Hoo’s breakout role was in the wildly popular high school zombie horror series All of Us Are Dead as Nam On Jo.
