The series skyrocketed in ratings and became one of the highest-rated Korean dramas in cable television history, solidifying its place in the K-Drama “Hall of Fame.” Now, six years later, fans are more than ready to dive back into this world with a fresh story and an all-new cast.

The upcoming series stars the talented Lee Yoo Mi in the title role of Gang Nam Soon. The intriguing plot spins a tale of Nam Soon, who mysteriously went missing as a child in Mongolia. Years later, she embarks on a journey to South Korea in search of her lost parents.
In the heart of Gangnam-gu, she crosses paths with Hwang Geum Joo (portrayed by Kim Jung Eun) and discovers her own grandmother, Gil Joong An (played by the legendary Kim Hae Sook). However, the family reunion takes a dark twist when they find themselves ensnared in a treacherous drug case, with detective Gang Hee Sik (Ong Seong Wu) hot on their trail.
While the sequel boasts an entirely new cast, nostalgic fans are holding their breath for a potential cameo or appearance from the original heroine, Do Bong Soon, played by Park Bo Young. Wouldn’t that be the cherry on top?
