Cinderella’s Sister (Hangul: 신데렐라 언니 “Cinderella Unni”), also known as Cinderella’s Stepsister / A Modern Story of Revenge, is a romantic and melodramatic TV drama in Seoul, South Korea, under KBS network. It first aired on March 31, 2010, and ended its broadcast in June 2010. It has been aired under the title Cinderella’s Stepsister on KBS World, which broadcast it across all its major international networks a few weeks after its Korean premiere.


Eun Jo (Moon Geun Young), who lives with her mother since years ago (and also her mother’s lover), finally gets a new family home when her mother remarries to a kind man who owns a winery. At first, she denied it, and even attempted to escape rather than dealing with the attempt of being schooled. The cynical Eun-Jo is unable to accept the affection of her new step-sister Hyo Sun (Seo Woo) and step father Dae Sung (Kim Gab Soo). Hyo Sun with her bright character is the apple in her father’s eyes and the clear favorite in the house. However, Eun Jo finds a friend in Ki Hoon (Chun Jung Myung), a college student working at the winery who becomes her own prince. Ki Hoon eventually leaves to take care of personal issues, but Hyo Sun’s jealousy of Eun Jo causes her to make Eun Jo believe that he has abandoned her. The three reunite 8 years later to begin the main plot – a modern adaptation of Cinderella with a twist. Jung Woo (Taecyeon), a boy that Eun Jo considered her little brother 8 years ago, appears in order to be near her and fulfills the role of a “fairy godmother” to her. A love triangle forms when Hyo Sun falls for Ki Hoon, who is still in love with Eun Jo. The feeling of betrayal lasts with Eun Jo, creating misunderstandings and difficulties. However, the kindness of Eun Jo’s stepfather (Hyo Sun’s father) begins to change everyone’s lives, making this a tale of growth and redemption.

Review: I like Cinderella’s Sister. I had lots of fun watching it. It is very interesting. It is worth your time. Also this is Taecyeon’s debut in acting. He did a great job. Moon Geun Young is know for being Korea’s youngest sister, did she do a good job. Ofcourse, I love her. She is very good in acting. You can almost feel her emotions when she is crying. She did a lot of crying in this drama series. Not only is this drama series about love but it’s also about family. When you finish watching it you will learn a moral lesson. Lastly; why do I recommend this show to all my leaders simply because the plot is great the acting is great; what could you ask for? right? It’s not your typical Korean Drama which makes it unique and fun to watch.
