Introduction*:
Sang-jin is married to Na-young and they have a 7 year old
daughter, Min-ju.  They live with his mom, younger
brother, younger sister, and sister's daughter.  One day,
Sang-jin vanishes while on a business trip.  He remains
missing for over 7 years until one day he is spotted by his
college friend, Hyun-pil, at a ski resort.  Min-ju, now 15,
sees him as well but she just thinks he looks like her dad.  
Hyun-pil begins digging and finds out that the man is called
Min Young-tae.  Young-tae is married to Hyun-ja and they
have a 3 year old son, Ung-pyo.  Hyun-ja doesn't care about
that-- all she knows is that he's her husband and the  father
of her child.  Hyun-pil makes the hard decision to tell the
truth to Na-young, to whom he's just proposed.  The
question is now which man will he live as, Han Sang-jin or
Min Young-tae, since each man has a different wife.
