Synopsis

It is 2000, and Ki Ha Myung (Nam Da Reum) is leading a happy life with his parents and older brother Jae Myung (Yoon Kyun Sang), until his father Ki Ho Sang (Jung In Ki), the captain of the firefighting squad, dies in a factory explosion during a rescue attempt along with several of his men. When Ho sang’s body is initially missing, the media sensationalizes the case by scapegoating him. In a battle for ratings, cold and calculating MSC reporter Song Cha Ok (Jin Kyung) alleges that Ho Sang survived the blast, and is currently in hiding because he was responsible for the deaths of his men. This causes the Ki family to become outcasts in their neighborhood and objects of national scorn. Ha Myung’s mother attempts to kill herself and her younger son by jumping off a cliff, and Jae Myung blames their deaths on the media, particularly Cha Ok.

But Ha Myung is alive, having been rescued from the water by Choi Gong Pil (Byun Hee Bong), a kindly elderly man who lives on Hyangri Island. Gong Pil, who may either have Alzheimer’s disease or trauma-induced memory loss, believes that Ha Myung is his older son Choi Dal Po, a simpleton who had died thirty years ago. Ha Myung, who has no one else in the world, embraces the deception and treats Gong Pil as his father. Gong Pil officially adopts Ha Myung, now named Dal Po, and places him in the family register as his eldest son. So five months later, when Gong Pil’s younger son Choi Dal Pyung (Shin Jung Geun) moves to the island with his daughter Choi In Ha (Noh Jung Ui), they are flabbergasted to be told by Gong Pil to address a mere boy as their “older brother” and “uncle,” respectively. In Ha has “Pinocchio syndrome,” which causes her to hiccup whenever she tells a lie. She idolizes her mother, and hates living on the island after her parents’ divorce. The fledgling friendship between Dal Po and In Ha is dashed, however, when he learns that In Ha’s mother is none other than Song Cha Ok.

Five years later, Dal Po (Lee Jong Suk) and In Ha (Park Shin Hye) are high school seniors and classmates at their small town high school in 2005. Dal Po, who is actually a genius, pretends to be dumb (like the real Dal Po) and gets all zeroes in his test scores. With his last place class standing and scruffy, country bumpkin hair, Dal Po is friendless at school while In Ha is the most popular girl. Dal Po secretly likes In Ha, and he is forced to join a televised quiz show at first to prevent an admirer from confessing to her on national TV, then later to protect her from losing a bet. At the TV studio, he runs into the show producer Hwang Gyo Dong (Lee Pil Mo), who had been a YGN reporter and one of Cha Ok’s rivals, but changed careers after what happened to the Ki family. After seeing Dal Po on TV, and knowing that her Pinocchio syndrome limits her career choices, In Ha decides to become a journalist.

In passionate pursuit of the truth, In Ha and Dal Po later become newbie reporters at a current affairs news desk. Among their colleagues are Seo Bum Jo (Kim Young Kwang), who comes from a rich chaebol family, and Yoon Yoo Rae (Lee Yoo Bi), once an idol sasaeng fan who now uses those obsessive and determined traits in her new job.

    Violet88 Says:

    Face-off btw Dal Po and Cha Ok at the end of ep 17 was great.. I am impressed at how Dal Po’s mind is working in getting the right words and question out to the intended recipient, in this case is Cha Ok. Of course the real credit should goes to the writer, but still seeing it delivered by Dal Po makes me REALLY like DAL PO’s character a lot. And LJS nailed it PERFECTLY as usual…
    “Dal Po” is written as not really a perfect character; he has flaws, and do not really knows how to react and handle certain scenario just like normal people like us (i.e. not finding his hyung for 13yrs because he didn’t know his bro didn’t abandon him and their mom, break up with In Ha coz he want to bring down In Ha’s mom, but end up get back together because he is really clueless as to what’s best and right for him). This is what makes his character feel real and relatable to audience.. It’s not like any other drama hero who is good and seemed to know everything and good at almost everything…

  23. 473
    tigerb Says:

    @anne: bum jo must really be so ashamed of what his mother did because in ha and other people know about the incident 13 years ago. so, is he planning to broadcast what he learns currently? i found it funny that just because the mother is rich, she thought that suggesting to frame the fireman 13 years before is not a crime! duhhhh, just like the airline executive that instructed the pilot to return to airport terminal to let off the purser???

  24. 474
    maknaee Says:

    Hi! @tigerb @anne

    yesss, Beom-jo is secretly taping > he’s on act!

    I love that this drama didn’t take the mainstream / predicted / usual way to solve the problem. They are showing us that there are sooo many ways to solve your problem.

    Like this one : Honestly I never think that Dal-po would hand over the evidence to Cha-ok. How could…? I guess I’m not as naive as Dal-po. But, I proud of his choice. Proud of you, bae! <3

    They showed more of Cha-ok in eps 17. Slowly, I get where she's coming from. And her tears in the end of eps… Finally, Dal-po & In-ha touch her inner side, right? :')

    P.S. : Yoo-rae x Gyo-dong *cough* , I wish there will be 'something' between them hahahaha
