Haven't really finished the drama series. I'm still half way... I just finished episodes 1-6. But from the episodes I've seen it's a good drama. Though I don't understand why the girl wouldn't want the guy even if he was rich or poor. Anyway, since I'm still not finished watching it. My question might be answered in the following episodes that I'm gonna watch. I'll update when I finished the whole drama series...
