l-r, t-b: chun jung myun, moon geun young, taecyeon, seo woo

We are all familiar with the story of Cinderella right? As children, we were told of how a young, pure-hearted girl finds her Prince Charming after she accidentally leaves her shoe in a haste to flee the ball.  But, have you ever wondered about the story of Cinderella’s Sister?

Korean romantic drama Cinderella’s Sister is a twist to the classic Cinderella story.  Korea’s little sister, Moon Geun Young is Zaren (Eun Joo), a cynical, angst-filled teenager who suddenly finds herself having a sister named Briana (Hyo Sun), played by Seo Woo, and a father after her mother decides to marry a rich *makgeolli manufacturer. 

Briana is the typical, pretty rich girl.  Always surrounded by people who always adored and dotted on her, including Zaren’s mom, she grew up carefree and a little reckless, which of course, made Zaren dislike her.  However, despite Zaren’s bitter outlook in life, Timothy (Ki Hoon), a man working for Briana’s father, decided to take an interest on her.  Briana has always admired Timothy but he only considers her as a little sister.   And thus, the drama unfolds.

Cinderella’s Sister will start airing tonight at ABS-CBN after Martha Cecilia’s Kristine Series and replacing Perfect Match.
