    @PrettyLady. In short, if I’m not mistaken…it appears that this woman is a risqué man stealer! Also, ditto, I too, would I’d like to see a well written legible synopsis; especially one that’s makes sense!

    Han Kyung Sah isn’t a MAN STEALER!! Kim Yun Joo, the famous actress in this drama was pregnant, but she told the guy that she would erase the baby. Kim Young Ho said not to, but Kim Yun Joo ignored him and to get away from the drama she went to America with her aunt. Then when she heard that Kim Young Ho was going to marry someone, she called her friend Han Kyung Sah. But, Kim Yun Joo didn’t even treat Han Kyung Sah as a friend for example stole Han Kyung Sah’s man and treated Han Kyung Sah very badly. Han Kyung Sah didn’t pick up the actress’s phone calls, so Kim Yun Joo left a message saying, “I’m still pregnant, so tell him that then he won’t marry whoever he was supposed to marry”. But, Hang Kyung Sah got pregnant too. Hang Kyung Sah still decided to marry Kim Young Ho and Kim Young Ho knew that the Kim Yun Joo said something to Han Kyung Sah that bothered her.But, he still wanted to marry Han Kyung Sah. So, they got married and then the Kim Yun Joo, her aunt, and little brother found out that the girl who was marrying Kim Young Ho was Han Kyung Sah.

  14. 14 : Renn Says:

    This, as far as I know, has the similar title with one 1850 Greatest American Literature work of Nathaniel Hawthorne, haaa… i dont know if this drama will resemble entirely the work of him. But, let’s be positive thinking that this drama would be different. Basically, I dont like how the story of “scarlet letter” (as it is in Nathaniel’s) turns out.

  15. 15 : ptsh836 Says:

    @prettylady, if the synopsis provided was inadequate then the summary provided by Amy (#12) was even more confusing altho she really did make a real effort in clarifying the first attempt. tks a bunch, amy…the title “scarlet letter” shld hv been self-explanatory; i’m sure there’ll be lots of kinky, unbelievable n beyond reason (way out of logic) stuff to shock the audience into oblivion since this is the latest style of drama to hit the screen…jus expect that life will not be the same again, i tell u… after having survived “temptation of an angel” nothing else is impossible!!!

  16. 16 : masa Says:

    Amy’s synopsis is correct. I dunno who wrote the original synopsis, but it’s completely wrong, and it’s easy to see why people would be confused. Ignore the one written on the main part of the site and read Amy’s. It’s accurate.

    This is a must watch series. Very good.

  17. 17 : Carol Says:

    Actually the real BITCH in this drama is Cha Hye Ran, whom I think is also sick in the head. It was a superb performance by Kim Yun Joo. This drama just drags on for too long and a lot of scences which are not needed . Wish it had been a little shorter.

  18. 18 : Dramaaddict Says:

    Koreans love to drag things out to the point where a lot of scenes are repeated over and over and over. At this point, the poor drama viewer is exhausted from being beat up by all these emotional nonsense between people. Korean writers, after writing the original story, are being told to drag it out to all these superfluous episodes so that their network can make money….. So wasteful and time consuming!!!!

  19. 19 : Dramaaddict Says:

    Since there are 100 episodes here, I will not torture myself and waste time watching this drama, thank you very much!

  20. 20 : Sandy Says:

    This drama was such a waste because it was so stupid. The second male lead is so unattractive–two women in love with him; don’t think so.
