It is expected to present a “Joseon version of Love Actually” where the top daughter-in-law of Hanyang, Shim Jeong-woo, and the widowed head wife, Jung Soon-deok, gather their strength to marry Joseon’s representative women and bachelors.
Rowoon will play the role of Shim Jeong-woo, the “Hanyang’s top son-in-law.” Shim Jeong-woo has a brilliant mind as he achieved the youngest Jangwon-level examination, but due to the princess who left the world during the wedding, he is a character with a strong old-fashioned principle who is blocked from pursuing his career and marriage.
