Shining Inheritance / Brilliant Legacy (2009) 灿烂的遗产

Genre: Comedy, Romance

Enjoyment: 9/10  Pace: 8/10  No. of times I watched it: 1

Brilliant-Legacy   

starring Han Hyo Joo as Go Eun Sung and Lee Seung Ki as Sun Woo Hwan. Other casts: Bae Soo Bin as Park Jun Se, Yeon Joon-seok as Go Eun-woo (younger brother) and Moon Chae Won as Yoo Sung Mi.

Plot: Go Eun Sung’s life is similar to Cinderella’s. After her father died, her step-mother, Baek Sung Hee, took away all of her assets and her younger brother, Eun Woo, and suddenly disappears without a trace. When the CEO of a food company, Jang Sook Ja, suffers amnesia and can’t remember who she is Eun Sung takes her in. However, Eun Sung does not know that she is the grandmother of Sun Woo Hwan, the man who she switched bags with at the airport. How will their constant bickering lead them to realize that they care more about each other than they let on?

Zoom into characters: Despite being taken everything from her, Eun Sung perseveres and works really hard to fulfill her dreams. Woo Hwan, on the other hand, becomes an irresponsible and disrespectful person as he caused his father’s death. He hates it when people says that he looks like his father or see his father through him. He also hates the food produced in the company as he feels sick of it.

Watched sometime ago. Looks like Han Hyo Joo’s character is hard to get? Bae Soo Bin plays the supporting role in both this and Dong Yi when Han Hyo Joo is involved. Haha. It is such a waste even though I don’t mind Woo Hwan ending up with Eun Sung (sry for the spoiler). Her musically talented brother was Eun Sung’s motivation until she lost him. Even though she is from a rich family, she does not act like a princess and is humble and polite. Eun Sung’s spirit is one I can learn from. Her father should not have pretended that he is dead just to claim insurance money. (Sry for the spoiler) How is he so sure that the stepmother will take care of Eun Sung and Eun Woo when she already has her own daughter, Sung Mi, who is much more precious to her? He should not have been so irresponsible and made his children suffer. He is just escaping from the problem instead of facing and solving it.

A company belongs to everyone working in it, not only the shareholders who have high rank as everyone in the company contributes to the achievement of the company. Shareholders are supposed to make decisions wisely and not just trying to take over the company. Every worker’s effort and hard work should be appreciated.

Why you should watch: Genre: Romance. It is a typical poor girl and rich guy happy ending drama with conflict but also worth watching. The casts acted their roles well. Liked how Lee Seung Gi portrays his character in his first drama as lead.
