Park Yoo-ha has worked hard to complete medical school and her internship, and she wants to make her father and sister proud of her. Her father raised his four children on his own, and her older sister made many sacrifices for the family. She is focused on work to the point where she really just isn’t interested in others—and then her life gets upended when her father marries a very wealthy woman.
