I only gave it two stars because of the great supporting actors'performances. The roles of the leads were both victims, victims, victims. It was insulting to both Min-ho and Shin-Hae. I don't know why they signed on for the abuse. Terrible plot!

Very similar to Boys Over Flowers synopsis with lots of rich guys and one poor main girl character.
