Plot Summary / Synopsis

A comedy drama that contrasts a woman who succeeds with knowledge and reason and a woman who weaponizes appearance and sensitivity, and explore the psychology of straightforward girl and scheming girl.

Byun So Ra, who believes weapons of women are strength and skill, and Wang Jin Joo, who believes weapons of women are feminine characters, work at the same cosmetics company and fall in love with the boss of the company, Yoon Joon Soo at the same time. The two women have conflicts in almost everything. Although they always oppose each other, but sometimes they unite. They compete intensely for their love and success.

Byun So Ra comes from an ordinary background, has ordinary look, but she works very hard. She always encourages herself that “god will help those who need help.” She is betrayed by her boyfriend and her dreams of becoming a professor fails. Byun So-Ra then joins a cosmetics company where she meets her rival that she clashes always with.

Wang Jin Joo looks younger than her actual age of 29 by at least 5 years. Grew up in wealthy family, she is pampered since young, never has suffering, and never need to work hard to get something she wanted. To her, the words of patient and caring exist just in dictionary, and can relentlessly speak out whatever she wants to say. She believes beauty is the most important asset of women, and so she thinks it’s easier for her to get something comparing with other women.

Yoon Joon Soo is a good-looking, smart, and talented chaebol, as he’s the head of the cosmetics company. He is a little indifferent, but he is an innocent guy with good heart who is shy and caring. He is also a guy who’s fiercely loyal, who takes responsibility for all his promises.
