We’re definitely off to a great start because of this beautiful lady. She’s so beautiful, everyone around her gapes at her and follows her bemusedly. She introduces herself as a new reporter at a TV station who just came from abroad.

And what better way to showcase the looks of a beautiful girl than in a red dress? Kudos to the stylists for choosing this fit and flare dress. Her good looks make her intimidating but the feminine dress balanced that out a bit. I still haven’t been able to find this dress though.

Sara was at a shopping mall, trying on lingerie when this guy jumped out of a curtain in her dressing room. She ran out, crying for help. She did some judo moves to the guy, much to her surprise, before security came to help her.

While waiting for the mall’s management to talk to her about the incident, Sara sat at a lounge area with other ladies. They were watching a television called Change. If you are familiar with the Korean TV Show Let Me In, the concept is the same. They pick candidates to undergo major physical transformation. Usually, these candidates have a miserable life. They suffer bullying or they can’t get proper jobs because of the way they look.

One of the candidates was a woman named Sa Geum Ran. The show told how people don’t help her out when she’s in a pinch. They just look at her in pity and she just shrugs it off.

She lives with her husband’s family. And at home, the only person who seems to be happy to have her around is her husband’s senile grandmother. Her sisters-in-law dislike her but they rely on her for household chores.

Sara watches avidly, feeling a strange kinship towards Sa Geum Ran.

Sa Geum Ran wasn’t chosen. Sara, still obsessing over her story, decided to check her out online. She found some statements from Geum Ran’s friends about the injustices done to her.

It turned out that her husband, who was supposed to be studying abroad, is already in Korea. When Geum Ran went to visit him in his hotel, he’s with another woman, Gyo Chae Yeon, a renowned reporter.

Geum Ran confronted Gyo Chae Yeon about her affair with her husband but Cha Yeon told her to look at herself in the mirror.

Hate the girl but love this coat. Too bad it’s no longer available in the same color.

Geum Ran got mad at Chae Yeon. When she tried to leave, she stopped her, causing Chae Yeon to stumble and fall. She was rushed to the hospital, having sustained injuries from the fall. Everyone thought she assaulted her. Before the police came to take her away, her husband, Lee Kang Joon, showed up and saved her.

Their happy reunion isn’t happy though because Kang Joon wanted to call it quits. He returned their wedding ring to her and told her he’s getting divorce.

Geum Ran came home, defeated. To add to her misery, she found out Kang Joon’s family knows about the affair and they kept it from her. They wanted Chae Yeon for Kang Joon.

Sara’s so overcome with Geum Ran’s plight that she can’t help but shed tears for her.

A note was left for Sara, telling her of Geum Ran’s whereabouts. But when she got there, she found out Geum Ran has been dead close to two months already. She committed suicide, the friend told her.

Turned out the car she was in drove off a cliff. They never found her body, only the car wreckage.

Capes are so popular this season! It’s probably not the most convenient and the most useful outerwear but it’s so cute, it’s hard to resist! Also, this is just the first of Sara’s many Saint Laurent ensembles.

 

Get Sara’s Cape (Han Ye Seul’s Cape):

While she was thinking about Geum Ran’s plight, a guy came and knocked her out. It’s the same guy from the shopping mall! She woke up in his car. She escaped but the guy stopped her. She did her judo moves on her but stopped when he told her in duress that she’s Sa Geum Ran.

Ah, I have so much love for her schoolgirl-chic ensemble. Under the cape, she had on this super cute mini dress and ruffled blouse that made her look like she’s performing on a classical music concert.

After the guy’s revelation, Sara started remembering who she really is. She’s Sa Geum Ran. After her accident, she got back on the main road by sheer willpower. She went immediately to Doctor Han Tae Hee’s apartment and asked for his help. Tae Hee was reluctant at first but caved in when she wouldn’t budge.

Geum Ran underwent tons of surgery and because of the anesthesia, she’s having delusions. That explains why she can’t remember who she really is at first.

Seriously, how cute is her ensemble?

Things are working out well for Gyo Chae Yeon. Sans the long hair, her style is a lot like her old style in Hotel King – business-like and full of simple silhouettes and basic colors.

It was up to Tae Hee to explain to Sa Geum Ran how Kang Joon’s mind works. In his mind, Geum Ran only occupies less than 1%. That’s how unimportant she is to him.

Kang Joon is also going to be an important person in the news company. They’re not hiding their relationship now.

After she saw Kang Joon with Chae Yeon, Geum Ran’s suffused with a need to toughen up.

And what better way to go incognito than to wear an all-black outfit, right?
