starring Kang Ji Hwan as Lee Cha Don and Hwang Jung Eum as Bok Jae In.
Plot: Bok Jae In (Hwang Jung Eum) plays the fat daughter of a loan shark who saved Cha Don and has a crush on Cha Don. She later goes for plastic surgery to change her looks. Meanwhile, Lee Cha Don (Kang Ji Hwan) was from a rich family. His father was betrayed and killed by his trusted subordinate and his mother was framed for murder. One day, he happens to find out the truth and a car “accident” occurs. Hence, he loses his memory and gains a special memorising ability. He thus becomes a prosecutor who loves money and meets his enemy/murderer of his father who is a high rank prosecutor. For money, he decides to help a woman (his mother) locked in the psychiatric ward to claim money left behind by a rich man, without knowing he is actually related to the dead rich man. He slowly uncovers the truth of his past and plots to takes revenge.

Zoom into characters: Cha Don grows to love money due to his family background. Cha Don has good memorizing skills after the accident. He was able to return to Jae In’s house just by memorizing the names of the shops he passed by. However, he did not want to live in Jae In’s house and decides to go to the orphanage. Despite growing up in the orphanage, he is optimistic and always trying to earn money. Jae In is a fat girl who undergoes surgery so as not to be looked down upon by others. She has good skills in handling money. Cha Don will gradually fall in love with her even though he makes use of her once.
