As a child, Ha-Myeong (Lee Jong-Suk) grew up in a family with his firefighter father, mother and older brother. Ha-Myeong and his older brother (Yoon Gyun-Sang) both possess higher than normal intellect and are proud of their father. A fire at a waste facility though destroys his family. His mother dies a short time later and Ha-Myeong ends up being scooped out of the ocean by an unknown man (Byun Hee-Bong).
The man that pulls Ha-Myeong out of the ocean is the grandfather of In-Ha (Park Shin-Hye). In-Ha's grandfather believes Ha-Myeong is his eldest son Dal-Po, who died 30 years ago.

Ha-Myeong is then adopted by In-Ha's grandfather and his name is changed to Dal-Po. In-Ha and Dal-Po now live together as uncle and niece, although they are in the same age range. In-Ha has a Pinocchio Syndrome. Whenever she lies she gets the hiccups. In-Ha and Dal-Po get along well until Dal-Po learns that In-Ha's mother is the reporter that covered the waste facility fire that destroyed his family. Dal-Po tries to distance himself from In-Ha, but he also develops feelings for her.
Years later, Dal-Po and In-Ha's family are now living in Seoul. In-Ha attempts to become a reporter like her mother. In-Ha meets her mother for the first time in years at a job interview for MSC Broadcasting Station. Her mother is the person giving her the job interview. In-Ha though fails the job interview. Her mother rejects her because of her Pinocchio Syndrome.
Dal-Po is now driving a taxi to support their family. One day, Dal-Po meets In-Ha's mother and decides to become a reporter.

Although first episode is very funny, but I think this is one of very serious drama. Romance aspect is not that dominant, also nor important. Core story itself was good and exciting.
The whole story is more about to managing a dark past, dark past could made you both worse or wiser. This drama showed us that someone who control the news media may lead the news to anything he wants, but she/he always able to choose as she/he supposed to : being independent. Twist plot have started there but we can understand it maybe because we found out so many clue on there and on this. Drama cast character is okay I think. The final episode also great, conflict resolved smooth. Overall I love this drama. Worth to watch, caution when you started watching you can't stop;)
|In Ha's mother|
I can tell that she was success in her acting, she made us (the audience) really upset. So is the lead actor brother played by actor Yoon Sang Gyun. Great acting portray characters that actually good at heart, but because of the dark past and he lost his entire family so he plan to made crazy yet sad revenge.
Chief YGN looks cool and idealist. He really know what to do.
My favourite character?
Not the lead actor but it's reporter Jang and his wife (she's also cameraman too). They made me laugh on whole drama, really :D
I gave Pinocchio 97 from 1 - 100.
