Trying to backtrack on the dramas that I did not manage to catch in the past. Cinderella and the Four Knight is one of the most popular Kdrama and up until today, it is still rank among the top K drama.

The Cinderella is a struggling student that live under the roof with her stepmother and stepsister. Eun Ha Won (Park So Dam) works multiple part time to save enough money to support herself to her dream college to fulfill her late mother’s wish.
Kang Ji Woon / Han Ji Woon (Jung Il Woo), Kang Hyun Min (Ahn Jae Hyun), Kang Seo Woo (Lee Jung Shin) and Lee Yoon Sung (Choi Min Sung) are the four knights.
How it started?
One day, their grandfather orders his 3 grandsons to attend his 5th wedding ceremony. Hyun Min doesn’t want to go, but ultimately ends up hiring Ha Won to be his date for 3 hours so he can upstage his grandfather. Ha Won agree so she can raise the 5 million won to buy back her mother’s place again.
