Jang Na Ra plays a cute and innocent country girl who often daydreams of rescuing her prince. One day, she meets Jang Hyuk who accidentally falls into her bath tub while she was taking her bath. Not off to a good start they started arguing over the matter. However, the story goes on to tell how Jang Nara arrives in the big city due to her plan to settle her irresponsible parents’ debts. She moves into Jang Hyuk’s house as a hired servant hence begins to teach the rich spoiled brat (Jang Hyuk) some manners through her down to earth scoldings and no-nonsense attitude. This drama gets totally hilarious in many scenes where Jang Nara and Jang Hyuk’s combination comes out as refreshingly cute. Jang Hyuk plays a rich and proud man who inherits his father’s business but is later betrayed by his own cousin and uncle leading to his downfall. On the other hand, Jang Nara plays a girl that he meets who help him pick up the pieces in his life, from defeat to success. A very well written drama with a story many will enjoy!

    What is it about Koreans and their cutesy actresses that look like folks? Must be because men are always fantasizing about making out with thirteen year olds, so the women in the main roles need to look like children. I found this to be true in Japan as well. Must be an Asian thing.

    First 3-4 episodes are good, then the story went downhill. Anything regarding to the business side is a big joke. Jang Hyuk character remain the same to the last episode: yelling at people and beating people without doing anything useful himself. I am not sure why anyone should like him. As usual, comment here is always “good drama” by others. I am not sure I was watching the same drama.
