Through the first introduction of characters, still cuts and trailers, the female lead Ha Young Eun seems to be inspired by Song Hye Kyo herself. Ha Young Eun is a woman who is no longer in her 20s. She does not see the world through rose-tinted glasses and refuses to believe in dreamy, fairytale-like romances. She works hard, using her knowledge and creativity to prove herself.

Besides, a line in one of the trailers also shows how proud Ha Young Eun is in her job: “Don’t you know what a copy means to a designer? It’s the designer’s pride, as well as pride in one’s own style. Don’t make us ashamed of it.” Similar to her character, Song Hye Kyo is known for the respect and passion she has for her acting job, which explains why she has been a top actress in the industry for so long without any decline in popularity.

But the biggest point that makes many viewers see Song Hye Kyo in Ha Young Eun is their similar attitudes in love. Both went through failures in relationships before so they’re afraid to open their hearts again. Ha Young Eun has been hurt in the past, so she doesn’t want to expect or pour her feelings into someone else anymore. No matter how Yoon Jae Guk tries to approach her, she pushes him away. She coldly says to him, “Encounters without impact are meaningless to me.”

This character also has a very rational definition of love: “Men and love, all of that is just fun and games involving hormones.” However, that was just a word to cover up her completely opposite inner self.  A friend who has known her for 20 years can easily see that, realizing that she also likes and cares about that guy.  But this woman still doesn’t want to fall in love again, doesn’t want to take the risk and be sad again

There seems to be a similarity between the character in the drama and the actress in real life. Song Hye Kyo herself has experienced the same feeling as her character.
