KDrama: Shining Inheritance (찬란한 유산)
Posted August 1, 2009on:
Gorgeous people, Cinderella like storyline, what’s not to love?
Well, a long 28 episode and slow pickup at the beginning are the only things I’m going to complain about. I enjoyed the rest as much as I can for a Korean drama. It has the usual long scenes, internal dialogues, and repetitive flashbacks but overall this was a good drama.
The main character is incredibly innocent, and her silent-lover/protector is the perfect brotherly hero. Her male counterpart is always pissed and proud. To round out (or square out hehe) the typical love rectangle, you have the girl who is completely dedicated to the male lead and will do anything to have him. I’ll leave it to you to figure out who’s who in the picture.
After finishing the drama, I’ll have to say the best parts were by the step-mother who has been left off of the poster. She made a wicked amazing villain! Always calculating her next move and hardly ever falters from the setbacks caused by heroin’s good luck.

Go Eun Sung’s life is similar to Cinderella’s. After her father died, her step-mother, Baek Sung Hee, took away all of her assets and her younger brother, Eun Woo, suddenly disappears without a trace. Despite this, Eun Sung preservers and works really hard to fulfill her dreams. When the CEO of a food company, Jang Sook Ja, suffers amnesia and can’t remember who she is Eun Sung takes her in. However, Eun Sung does not know that she is the grandmother of Sun Woo Hwan, the man who she switched bags with at the airport. How will their constant bickering lead them to realize that they care more about each other than they let on?
