Eun-yi plays an innocent young woman who accepts a job working as a nanny and maid for a very wealthy family. The housewife who hires her is young and beautiful, but vulnerable in her pregnancy. Her mother has successfully married her off to a rich, powerful, cultivated man – he plays classical piano as if conducting surgery – but remains aware of how tentative her daughter’s position is. Both women depend on the income and the mercy of the man of the house. But Hoon is exacting in his standards. All the more surprising then, that his eye comes to rest on Eun-yi. A working class woman still a little rough around the edges,she looks overwhelmed by the modernist mansion she now works in, but when Hoon approaches her for a swift seduction, she turns out to be his match. The women of the house, though, prove to be a greater challenge.
