Sam-Bong (Kim Young-Chul) opens Chinese restaurant Gahwamansasung. He is cheap and authoritarian to his family. He has a wife and three children: twins Hae-Ryung (Kim So-Yeon) and Man-Ho (Jang In-Sub) and younger sibling Hae-Won (Choi Yoon-So).

Hae-Ryung appears to have a perfect life with her husband Hyun-Ki (Lee Pil-Mo). Her mother-in-law is a successful Korean traditional dress designer. In reality, Hae-Ryung’s life is far from perfect. Her only son died in a car accident 5 years ago. Her husband acts indifferent towards her and her mother-in-law is cruel towards her in private. At that time, Hae-Ryung meets Ji-Gun (Lee Sang-Woo). They become closer as they share common bonds, but Ji-Gun has a secret that he can’t tell Hae-Ryung.

Hae-Ryung’s twin brother Man-Ho is incompetent and childish. He works at his father’s Chinese restaurant with his wife Mi-Soon (Kim Ji-Ho). He relies on Mi-Soon at work and at home. One day, Se-Ri (Yoon Jin-Yi), who worked for Sam-Bong’s restaurant in the past and grew up at the same orphanage as Mi-Soon, appears with a baby son. Se-Ri tells Mi-Soon that the child’s father is Man-Ho.

Youngest sibling Hae-Won works as an editor for a fashion magazine. She does not like her new chief editor Kang-Min (Park Min-Woo), because he gained the position due to his father being the CEO of the company.
