K-drama: Women of the Sun

In addition to the Bowers Museum promo, I also caught 10 minutes of a Korean drama on a local multi-language TV channel. The title was Women of The Sun or 태양의 여자. I think it just finished showing in Korea and it was the #1 drama over there this week. There are several episodes posted on Veoh and YouTube but nothing with English subtitles yet, though what I saw last night on TV had subs. Here's the synopsis:
Shin Do Young is an announcer who instigates the jealously of all women around her because of her superior looks, great abilities, and great background. But Do Young has a deep, dark secret. She was actually abandoned at an orphanage when she was young but luckily she was adopted by a nice couple. The couple were unable to have their own children but were surprised when their biological daughter was born. Do Young, afraid that her parents would no longer love her anymore abandoned her 5 year old little sister, Ji Young, at a train station. Years have passed and Do Young meets a joyful girl, Sa Wol, who becomes her personal shopper. What happens when Do Young's terrible misdeed is revealed and that Sa Wol is actually the sister she abandoned at the train station all those years ago?

K-dramas have the most convoluted plotlines. Usually someone gets amnesia, goes blind, or is lost/found after many years. I guess this one falls into the third category.

The one with short hair is Shin Do Young
