• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Hong Mo Ne, Hong Tae Sung, Moon Jae In, Shim Gun Wook, Hong Tae Ra

South Korean Drama first broadcast in May 2010, consisting of 17 75-minute episodes. Also called "Bad Guy" in some venues.

The plot is a typical twisted Soap Opera, where a forgotten family member plots the downfall of a rich but corrupt family living in Seoul.

Shim Gun Wook was first adopted then abandoned by the powerful Hong family, who own the Hae Shin Corporation, a development and construction company. Twenty years after he was left at an orphanage, he is now a cunning Chessmaster and plans to destroy both the company and the family.

Moon Jae In is a young independent art consultant working with the matriarch of the family to open a new art gallery, who is also raising her sister. She becomes an unwitting pawn in Gun Wook's schemes.

Hong Tae Ra was born as the first daughter in the chaebol family. She has never said no to her parents and went through an arranged marriage, living her life like the typical upperclass housewife.

Hong Mo Ne is the youngest Hong daughter, who missed being pushed into an arranged marriage when it's discovered her fiance is having an affair with an actress.

Hong Tae Sung is the son adopted after Gun Wook was abandoned. He is the younger son, rebellious and angsty.

Hong Tae Gyun is the older brother, who is secretly involved in stock manipulation.

The Death by Origin Story begins when Chae Sun Young falls from a high-rise building to her death in the first minutes of the first episode. It turns out she is Gun Wook's Childhood Friends from the orphanage, and Tae Sung's girlfriend.
