During his childhood days, Gun-wook (played by Kim Nam-gil) is mistaken as the successor to Haeshin Group who was abandoned as a baby and starts living the life of his dreams after the family takes him in from an orphanage but a DNA test soon reveals he was lying and is heartlessly kicked out of the house. He who then grows up to be an all-around attractive man -- good-looking with great athletic and linguistic skills -- sets up an elaborate plan through which he approaches Haeshin Group's youngest daughter Hong Monet (played by Jung So-min) to recover the firm 'which was mine.' Tae-ra (played by Oh Yeon-su), Monet's older sister and the pillar of the Haeshin family, ignores and despises such a Gun-wook yet she starts to develop new emotions toward him the more she meets him. Meanwhile, Jae-in (Han Ga-in), who is beautiful and intelligent yet born into an average family, dreams of climbing the social ladder by betting her stakes on Tae-sung (played by Kim Jae-wook), the actual hidden son of Haeshin Group.
Kim Nam-gil, every girl's dream and Han Ga-in, every guy's dream, come together for the drama: 9
But it is not my dream to see them fall in love with each other: 7
"Bad Boy" is a new production by director Lee Hyung-min, the creator of melodramas such as KBS TV series "I'm Sorry, I Love You" and "The Snow Queen," who is known for his unique sense of style and use of flowing and elegant imagery. It also stands at the center of attention yet is being burdened because it stars actor Kim Nam-gil who was much loved for his character as Bidam in 2009 hit MBC drama "Queen Seondeok" and Han Ga-in who is making a comeback to the screen for the first time in three years. Oh Yeon-su who is expected to show the matured beauty of a middle-aged woman, like she did in MBC's "Sweet Life," and the new image Kim Jae-wook will take on, different from the 'pretty boy' roles he had played so far, are also arousing curiosity.
