Unlike the others, Cha Eun-Sang is considered ordinary and comes from a poor background. 18-year-old Cha Eun-Sang lives with her mother who is mute. Her mother works as a housekeeper and Eun-Sang also works part-time jobs to help out. One day, Eun-Sang's older sister (Yoon Jin-Seo) calls from the U.S. and informs them that she will marry. Eun-Sang's mother then asks Eun-Sang to send her older sister some money from her savings account. Eun-Sang isn't happy with her situation and decides to go to the U.S. herself to see if she can start a better life with her sister. When Eun-Sang arrives in California she is in for a shock. Her older sister lives in a filthy home with a deadbeat boyfriend who seems violent. Her sister is also not getting married or going to school and works full-time as a waitress. When Eun-Sang finally tracks down her sister working at a beach front restaurant, she takes the money Eun-Sang brought for her wedding and leaves without even saying goodbye. Eun-Sang's dreams of starting a better life in America quickly vanishes and she crumbles to the ground in tears. Meanwhile, Kim Tan is not your typical high school student, but a handsome and wealthy Korean heir to a large conglomeration. He is sitting out on the patio of the beach front restaurant, watching everything unfold between Eun-Sang and her sister. Kim Tan's American friend then sees a ziplock bag with a powdery substance fall out of Eun-Sang's suitcase and runs over to scoop it up. Kim Tan knows immediately that the ziplock bag doesn't contain drugs, but rather powder grain to make traditional Korean drinks. Soon, Eun-Sang runs off after Kim Tan's friend and Kim Tan goes to help Eun-Sang. When the dust is settled, Eun-Sang walks out of a police station and her passport is temporarily confiscated. With nowhere to go for Eun-Sang, Kim Tan offers to let her stay at his home. Although they seem to come from different worlds, they quickly develop a rapport for each other. But, when Kim Tan is at school, Eun-Sang meets a girl named Rachel (Kim Ji-Won). Rachel informs Eun-Sang that she is Kim Tan's fiance and she demands that Eun-Sang leaves his home immediately. Eventually, Eun-Sang returns to South Korea. Kim Tan now feels nothing but emptiness after Eun-Sang's departure. He decides to go back to Korea even though his older stepbrother Won (Choi Jin-Hyuk) strongly opposes his return. When Kim Tan gets back to his luxurious mansion like home, he sees someone briefly that resembles Eun-Sang. Kim Tan goes to his mother Ki-Ae (Kim Sung-Ryoung) and asks about the unfamiliar, but familiar girl that he briefly saw. His mother tells him that the girl is their housekeeper's daughter and her name is Cha Eun-Sang. She's also staying in their home.

10 Times your favorite stars looked exactly like anime characters
For me and most other Korean addicts that I know, there was a time when I fangirled over anime characters way more than I did any real human being, until I realized that real-life anime characters were in K-pop and K-drama all along. In honor of this amazing relation in fandoms, this article presents ten times some of our favorite idols looked exactly like classic anime characters. (**This is an article posted on the Dramafever FB page. It was too good to pass up so I had to add it here.**) 1.) Lee Min Ki and L from Death Note Every time I see Lee Min Ki, I can't help but be reminded of L, even when he's playing quirky characters like Byun Hee (Shut Up Flower Boy Band). They both have this sort of dark, dominating image to them, especially when it comes to their eyes, but despite their intimidating demeanor, you can't help but love the two. Plus don't you just love the idea of Lee Min Ki playing a dark genius detective? 2.) Former EXO-Member Tao and Cloud from Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Yes, I realize that Final Fantasy is originally one of the biggest gaming franchises out there, but they also made and animated movie that featured Cloud as the main character, so most of my comparisons are based off of the movie, not the classic game. That aside, don't they both look so much alike? They got the hair, the lips, the "I don't care" sunglasses/goggles, even the general vibe they give off is similar. I love it when Tao has the whole bad boy concept, but this took it to a whole different level of awesome for me. 3.) BIGBANG's G-Dragon and Gaara from Naruto Honestly, no one can rock Gaara's hair color and thick eyeliner as well as G-Dragon can. Enough said. 4.) BTS's V and Kaneki Ken from Tokyo Ghoul There are so many things that are visually similar between these two. They both have masculine yet cute facial features that are highlighted by white hair, my personal favorite hair color on V. These features include their jawline, nose, and their darker colored eyes. I also like how they both are wearing the same colored shirt in this image. It just makes the contrast pop out all the more. 5.) Park Shin Hye and Haruhi Fujioka from Ouran High School Host Club One of my favorite looks on the always beautiful Park Shin Hye was when she was playing Go Mi Nam in You're Beautiful, and her cross-dressing mishaps reminded me a lot of those from Ouran High School Host Club. After re-watching the series for the millionth time, I couldn't help but notice how similar the two females looked despite having totally different reasons for their situations. They both look really good in that boyish style, but still manage to maintain an innocent, feminine charm that you can't help but love. Just an example of the perfect balance between the two. 6.) Super Junior's Eunhyuk and Luffy from One Piece Look at these two dorks with their toothy closed-eye smiles! They just scream adorable, don't they? I've always thought that Eunhyuk had aspects Luffy's boyish look and spirit, but seeing it highlighted so well in this picture just makes these goofy boys seem even more alike then I thought. I like how these two look in general, but the icing on the cake? How awesome Eunhyuk looks in a straw hat. 7.) IU and Sakura from Cardcaptor Sakura IU and Sakura are similar in more ways than one in this instance. Not only do these two look have absolutely adorable and similar facial features, but both of these girls are also the epitome talent. While Sakura is good at everything from rollerblading to cooking, IU is the ultimate triple threat idol by being amazing at singing, dancing, and acting (which can be seen by her performances in Dream High and Producer). Also who wouldn't love to see IU in all of Sakura's elaborate outfits? 8.) Rain and Grey Fullbuster from Fairy Tail Hold on to your hats, ladies — these two are the perfect example of Korean idols and anime characters looking absolutely perfect . Both of these boys have similar appearances from their dark hair to their crosses and jeans, but also abs to absolutely die for. Grey Fullbuster almost never wears a shirt, and Rain, for the sake of all his adoring fans, shouldn't even own a shirt, so these two lady-killers are almost one and the same. Plus, it would be so cool to see Rain with ice powers. 9.) Jang Geun Suk and William T. Spears from Black Butler Ahhh...Jang Geun Suk's look from You're Beautiful, both my favorite and least favorite style for him. Not only did the his whole slicked-back hair and tuxedo look remind me of a butler, but specifically one butler in particular: William T. Spears. These two look eerily similar in this scene except for one tiny detail, that of course being William's trademark glasses, but add the glasses and you have the perfect casting choice for a demon butler. 10.) BTS's Rap Monster and Sailor Moon Last, but not least, my personal favorite pair-up, Rap Monster and Sailor Moon. There is no doubt in my mind that this is the closest-looking comparison of this entire list. Every thing from the hair and make-up to the sailor fukku is perfect. Plus, Rap Monster's body shape is definitely on point for this cosplay.
If BTS Were in Boys Over Flowers
Now, I think there are a lot of things wrong with the plot of BoF (mainly the boys treat Jan-di like crap) but its still funto imagine it as a less problematic drama. Here's who I'd cast! Gu Jun Pyo - Suga The leader of the F4 and heir to the Shinhwa Group, one of the biggest companies in South Korea. He is hot-tempered and believes that there is nothing that money can't buy. Though he's unable to express his feelings, deep down, he has a heart of gold. He torments Jan-di after she stands up to his bullying ways, but ends up falling in love with her and will do anything to protect her. Yoon Ji Hoo - V A member of the F4 and the grandson of a former president of Korea. He has a driving phobia after being involved in a car accident that killed his parents and left him the only survivor. He is initially in love with his childhood friend Seo-hyun, who helped him overcome his social anxiety. Calm and gentle, his musical talent catches Jan-di's attention and she begins to develop feelings for him. So Yi Jung - Jungkook A member of the F4 and a skilled potter. His family owns the country's biggest art museum. After losing his first love to his brother, he becomes a Casanova. He eventually changes his playboy ways when he realizes that he likes Ga-eul. Song Woo Bin A member of the F4, his family runs the country's largest construction company, which Woo-bin later admits has strong connections to organized crime. However, he has excellent business sense and is very charismatic. He's a super nice guy that happens to be a gangster lol and of course RM, Jin, and Jimin are the dad, mom, and little brother :) How would you cast BOF?
