A man loses his father due to a woman’s family. He loves the woman dearly. The man then is targeted by the woman’s family to be killed. Now, the man changes his face and hides his true identity. He begins to take revenge on the woman’s family, but he struggles between the desire for revenge and love.
Yi-Soo’s (later played by Kim Nam-Gil) family moves into a small carriage house on the premises of Jo Sang-Kook’s (Lee Jung-Kil) mansion. Yi-Soo’s father works as the chauffeur for Jo Sang-Kook, who is the president of Gaya Hotel. Jo Sang-Kook is well respected, but his son Jo Ui-Sun (Kim Kyu-Cheol) doesn’t take after his father. He continues to have affairs with actresses and anchorwomen. His wife suffers heavily because of his infidelity as well as his daughter Hae-Woo (later played by Son Ye-Jin).
Yi-Soo transfers to the same high school where Hae-Woo attends. They become friends and also develop feelings for each other, but things change.
Professor Kang (Choi Duk-Moon) visits Jo Sang-Kook’s home and asks about a man. Jo Sang-Kook tries to hide his surprise. Yi-Soo’s father then drives Professor Kang back to his home. Professor Kang leaves behind papers in the car. Yi-Soo’s father finds the papers and reads it, before locking it up in a locker at the train station. The next day, Professor Kang is found dead.
Meanwhile, Hae-Woo’s father causes a hit-and-run accident. Jo Sang-Kook makes a deal with Yi-Soo’s father to take the blame for his son’s hit-and-run accident. Yi-Soo’s father accepts the deal, but later changes his mind. He calls Jo Sang-Kook to inform him of his change of heart and that he will go to the police station to tell them his was not involved in the hit-and-run accident. While crossing the street to get to the police station, Yi-Soo’s father is killed by an unidentified man.
After his father’s death, Yi-Soo tries to prove his father’s innocence. Yi-Soo is convinced that Hae-Woo’s father was the driver in the hit-and-run accident. Then, Yi-Soo is given a key to a locker in the train station. He goes there and reads the paper stored in the locker. Yi-Soo calls Hae-Woo and tells her that they will be together no matter what. At that time, Yi-Soo is taken away. He is presumed dead.
13 years later, Yi-Soo appears at the wedding ceremony for Hae-Woo and Joon-Young (Ha Seok-Jin). The night after their wedding ceremony, Hae-Woo and Yi-Soo meet on the hotel balcony. Yi-Soo’s plan for revenge begins.
