Women of the Sun (Hangul: 태양의 여자; RR: Taeyang-ui Yeoja) is a 2008 South Korean television series starring Kim Ji-soo, Lee Ha-na, Han Jae-suk and Jung Gyu-woon. It aired on KBS2 from May 28 to July 31, 2008 on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 21:55 for 20 episodes.



Shin Do-young is a popular TV news anchor who seemingly has it all: good looks and brains, a cushy job and a privileged upbringing. But Do-young has a deep, dark secret. She was abandoned at an orphanage at a young age, but was fortunately adopted by a nice, well-off couple who were unable to have children of their own. But to the couple's surprise, they conceived a few years after Do-young's adoption, which led to the birth of their biological daughter, Ji-young. Afraid of losing the love of her adoptive parents, the teenage Do-young abandoned her five-year-old sister at a train station.

Twenty years later, Do-young hires a cheerful young woman named Yoon Sa-wol as her personal shopper. But Do-young's past returns to haunt her when Sa-wol is revealed to be Ji-young. When Sa-wol learns the truth, she plans her revenge by taking everything from her erstwhile sister, including the man Do-young loves.
