Young-Jak (Kim Kang-Woo) has worked for CEO Yoon (Baek Yoon-Sik) for the past 10 years. He graduated from a prestigious university, but beckons at the call of CEO Yoon everyday.
CEO Yoon is married to Baek Geum-Ok (Youn Yuh-Jung), the daughter of the wealthiest man in Korea. They have a daughter Na-Mi (Kim Hyo-Jin) and a son Cheol (On Joo-Wan). Due to their extreme wealth, the family wields virtually unlimited power in Korea. Their daughter Na-Mi is the only person that disagrees with her family’s actions.
Meanwhile, CEO Yoon did not marry Geum-Ok because of love, but rather because of her wealth. For virtually his entire life he has worked for Geum-Ok and her father. Throughout this time, CEO Yoon has felt humiliated. Now, CEO Yoon wants to leave Geum-Ok and her family. Yoon is in love with their Filipino housemaid Eva (Maui Taylor) and wants to spend the rest of his life with her. Geum-Ok has no doubt that she will have her husband back. After CEO Yoon leaves, Young-Jak takes over his role in the family. He too soon becomes addicted to the taste of money
