"One who wants to wear the crown, bears the crown"
A story that depicts the lives, the rivalries, friendship and the love of group of elite high school students.
Kim Tan (Lee Min Ho) is the second son of a very rich Korean conglomerate, who was sent abroad in order to study. When in reality, it is a form of exile so that his elder-brother back at Korea can take over the business. While he was in the States, Kim Tan met Cha Eun-Sang (Park Shin Hye) who just arrived from Korea to see her sister who claims that she is going to get married and therefore, needed the money. With misfortune befalling before her, Kim Tan suddenly finds himself helping her and eventually falling for her.
When Kim Tan's fiancee Rachel (Kim Ji Won) arrives to celebrate their one year of engagement and also to bring him back to Korea. He is now torn between doing his duty and doing what his heart wants him to do. Meanwhile, there's another problem waiting for Rachel as her mother decided to get married again to Kim Tan's former best friend, Choi Young-do (Kim Woo-bin) making him Rachel's future step-brother. All three of them attended the same school when Eun-Sang transferred to the school of the elite due to some family problems. It sank into her that her world and their worlds are not the same. In addition to it that Young-do falls for her as well. Just when they thought that their problems can be solved so easily as 1,2,3. The real problem arises when they realize how their world is controlled by money and power and the difference between the world they lived in.
Honestly speaking this drama has so much "drama" in it. They portrayed the characters fairly well in my book. Making my teeth grind whenever I encountered a scene that was aggravating for my taste (mostly when it comes to Tan's dad). How wickedly twisted I am for liking Young-Do (to those who know me, I think they already know why) and how happy I am that there's some girl power and not just your typical damsel in distress kind of scenario for Eun-sang. (way to go girl!) Anywho, my rambling stops right here since I don't want to reveal too much information. (kekeke)
I'm almost finish watching this one I have at least 7 more episodes to go. By the way, this is a 20 episode series. So you better prepare some popcorn, drinks and tissues with you. If you want to know more of what I am rambling about watch this drama then share your sentiments with me ;)
