SYNOPSIS

What if everything disappeared when you woke up one morning? The heroine of this drama used to be financially well-off but struggles to make a living after she loses everything with her father’s death. She becomes the breadwinner taking care of her delicate mother and immature younger brother, but is reassured because she just got married. However, she lives a poverty-stricken life when she loses her wealth and her husband abandons her without mercy. Our heroine starts to find her direction in life after she’s thrown into the world and passed through death. “Those who fall on land, get up.” Just like that saying, our heroine doesn’t avoid her limitations and the troubles and hardships that torment her but goes head on and fights against them. Let’s think about the direction in our life in this age as we see her fight. [SBS International]

IN SHORT

Questions to seriously ponder on: why is a producer as competent and talented as Hong Chang-Wook – his work in 강남엄마 따라잡기 (Gangnam Mom), 신의 저울 (The Scale of Providence) and 제중원 (Jejungwon) being all the proof you need – being wasted on such pedestrian fare, when any run-of-the-mill journeyman veteran would have sufficed? Why is Lee Young-Ah, garishly over-the-top in movies and dramas for half a decade in a mesmerizing regression which seemed to leave no hope, making her best impression since 2006's 황금사과 (Golden Apple) in something that will do her no good (if not bringing more roles in dailies and weekend dramas) and will be forgotten tomorrow? And, last but not least, am I the only one who's tired of SBS and MBC trying to ape KBS1's “golden goose” of Cinderella tropes in nearly every other evening daily, just to steal whatever edge people in the industry think that format has? If it must be makjang, then at least try to find your own niche in the land of daft histrionics.
