This drama features the women of three generations and people around them. Mari grows up as a good teacher of this generation where there is no true mentor. Hyeonsuk, who has been a troublemaker, realizes the love and support of her family. Kang Sunok regards herself as unlucky, but later on realizes how happy she has been. How can you hold up when your life gets tough? You will figure it out by holding up day by day, just like these women in the drama.


Kang Sunok (cast Kim Hyeja)

Kang Sunok, so-called Angukdong Ms. Kang, is famous for her cooking class teaching style. Unlike her beautiful appearance, she uses harsh languages criticising daughters-in-law of millionaires who come to learn cooking and earned a reputation. She married to the only son from rich family and has two daughters. SunOk loved her husband, but her husband’s affair made her lonely for so long. Her eldest daughter Hyeonjeong became an anchorwoman. The younger one Hyeongsuk met a good husband and her granddaughter has a doctorate degree. Now she finds a peace of mind and she believes all the troubles have passed by. Yet, she is about to meet another storm in her life.

Kim Hyeonsuk (cast Chae Sira)

Kim Hyeonsuk is honest and poor at lying. She displays her emotion on her face so easily. Hyeonsuk gets carried away, but also is warm-hearted. She is often immersed in dramas and shares emotions of main characters. She cares a lot about hair, make-up, or clothes because of her complex. There's nothing she can show off, but she doesn't want to be shabby. She never skips workout. Having been compared to her smart sister since her childhood, her grandmother also mistreated her saying, "I wish you were a son." She is beautiful enough, but she never knows how attractive she is under such circumstances. Yet, she has a pride. She taught her daughter to study hard not to be treated just like her and made her a Ph.D. holder, but she still feels somewhat empty.

Kim Hyeonjeong (cast Do Jiwon)

An anchorwoman at broadcasting corporation. This successful career woman becomes a role model for many female university students. This elegant woman looks confident, warm-hearted and considerate, but actually she is so sensitive, and works off a grudge at any cost. She suffers from a lot of pressure because of young and talented newcomers and ends up hating them. She looks shaky. And eventually, she has to give up her news anchor position.

Jeong Mari (cast Lee Hana)

An example of an honor student. She has never failed from entering to foreign language high school to earning doctorate degree. But, Mari is not sure if she has been studying so hard for herself or for her mother. Mari has done what has been expected of her without realizing her true self. People says that Mari's life is similar to that of her aunt Hyeonjeong's, but her aunt doesn't look that happy. One day, she gets involved with a case and her life falls apart at once. She has to work as a part-timer and goes through belated puberty for the first time in her life. "Who am I and where am I?" Then, she starts to think about her life thoroughly.
