Choi Seok Bong is convinced he is the son of a billionaire. Searching for his biological father, he, for the moment, works in a luxurious Oh Seong Hotel as a bell boy, sure he will meet his father there some day. One day, he is diagnosed with cancer. Having no money for the treatment, he becomes desperate to meet his father. To access the highest ranks of the society, he asks for the help of stingy Hee Shin Mi, heiress of Oh Seong Group.
OMG! They played a French song “Tombe la neige” by Salvatore Adamo!!! It is such an old song. 1963! I know some Japanese people think it’s a traditional japanese music because an instrumental version of it plays in elevators there! haha The drama was entertaining enough. Yi Shi Yeong nicely impersonates this loud airhead daddy’s girl. That’s a real performance and must have been really tiring for her to yell all the time like that. Overall it’s a good.
