On a cold winter night, Yoon-Hee receives birth pangs and is taken to Kap-Sik's house. At the same time, Kap-Sik's wife Kil-Nyeo (Kim Hae-Sook) is also struggling to give birth. They both give birth to daughters, but right after giving birth Yoon-Hee dies. Kap-Sik decides to raise Eun-Hee (played later by Bae Doo-Na) with his own daughter Keum-Hee (played later by Kim Yu-Mi). The two girls are brought up as twin sisters.
Keum-Hee grows up as a model student. Contrary to Keum-Hee, Eun-Hee grows up as a trouble-maker and is mistreated by her mother. During their high school days, their father Kap-Sik is injured in a car accident and goes through surgery. Under financial strain, Kil-Nyeo asks Eun-Hee's teacher to transfer her daughter to a vocational school. Eun-Hee overhears the conversation and runs to the bus stop in tears. By accident, Eun-Hee boards a bus heading to Seoul. While on the bus, Eun-Hee meets Ji-Hoon (Gang Dong-Won).
Now back at home, Eun-Hee keeps in touch with Ji-Hoon by letters. Keum-Hee takes an entrance exam to a university, while Eun-Hee takes care of her siblings. One day, Keum-Hee collapses in a book store. There Ji-Hoon finds stricken Keum-Hee and helps her. Ji-Hoon is a medical student who came to the village through a volunteer medical service in Seoul. Ji-Hoon learns that Keum-Hee is Eun-Hee's twin sister and is surprised. Keum-Hee starts to feel jealousy.
By an accident caused by Keum-Hee, Kap-Sik dies in a fire while trying to save Eun-Hee. A few days later, President Kim comes to their house looking to find his grand-daughter. Kil-Nyeo takes advantage of the situation and lies to President Kim. Kil-Nyeo tells him that Keum-Hee (her daughter by birth) is his granddaughter. Keum-Hee leaves with President Kim.
6 years later, Eun-Hee is dumped by a man who promised to marry her and gave birth to his child. Eun-Hee and her family move to Seoul. There she works part-time jobs to support her family.
Meanwhile, In-Woo (Shin Seong-Woo) comes to Korea for his father's funeral. In-Woo does not want to take over his father's debt-ridden company, but he has no choice.
Keun-Hee graduates from a university & takes a job as a secretary.
Their mother Kil-Nyeo is diagnosed with cancer. Eun-Hee wants to save her, but she doesn't have any money. Eun-Hee is an accountant at a factory which is about to go bankrupt. The company is inherited by In-Woo. Eun-Hee doesn't even get a salary at this point from the nearly insolvent company. In desperation, Eun-Hee takes back her rental deposit and moves into the factory dormitory with her 1-year-old son and 9-year-old twin siblings. In the dormitory there is In-Woo who has also moved in. There, Eun-Hee makes a pact with In-Woo to save the company. Eun-Hee now does her best to help revive the factory.
