But unlike the cold and calculating Yi-kyung, Doo-rim is sweet and sunny, and Kang-joo falls genuinely in love with her.
Kang-joo acted by lee hongki is the heir to Taeyang corporation. He has a prickly personality, self-indulgent and does not trust people as he was kidnapped by his teacher when he was young.

An awesome drama that really keep me in suspense and keep me thinking if the curse was a rumour or it is really a truth. The ending is abit shocking but it will answer all your answers that you have in your mind.
