It's almost scary how toxic the Hyo Won Group family is from the patriarch of the family Chairman Han to the demented matriarch if one can even call Yang Soon Hye (Park Won Sook) that to her oldest son Han Jin Ho who doesn't seem to have the respect of anyone in that family, not even the maids and the butler.
And worst of all, the daughter Han Jin Hee, a nightmare of a daughter who undoubtedly takes after her mother. Whatever love or emotion they have for each other, if they even have that is preceded more by their fight for the inheritance. It's almost suffocating watching them and all their secrets muddling around and engulfing everyone, even the household staff. I can only imagine how it must have felt for both Hi Soo and Seo Hyun as the daughters-in-law and Park Jeong Do (Jo Eun Sol) the brother-in-law.
But as the saying goes, there are no secrets that time does not reveal, and that is exactly what Seo Hyun does reveal secrets many imagined were done and buried when she finds her mother-in-law’s old cell phone, containing recordings proving her wicked deeds, which even Jung Seo Hyun couldn’t suppress her shock of discovering that ever-suspicious Kang Ja Kyung was actually Hye Jin, Han Ha Joon (Jung Hyun Joon) biological mother. And what's more, Han Ji Yong (Lee Hyun Wook) took part in bringing Hye Jin into the house as Han Ha Joon’s tutor.
And Seo Hyun's troubles don't end there; she finds outs her stepson Han Soo Hyuk who, despite being born to a wealthy family, is a lonely soul with deep emotional wounds who no longer feels any zest for He had been impassively going about his everyday life already been decided for him by his family until he forges an unexpected connection with his family’s new maid Kim Yoo Yeon (Jung Yi Seo). The unexpected spark between the two of them raises the question of whether Han Soo Hyuk, who has always strictly adhered to the path that his family set for him, will finally break out of their mold—and whether Kim Yoo Yeon is willing to give up on the peaceful life she has finally found in the Hyowon Group household to pursue this secret romance. I am willing to bet it will. Because of all the family members, Soo Hyuk strikes me to be the bravest of the lost despite his young age. Watch episodes 5 & 6 here.
