Queen of Divorce Story

The story centers around Kim Sa-Ra, a young, strong, and determined lawyer. She was married to No Yool Sung, the son of a couple who owns the largest and most prestigious law firm in South Korea. Kim Sa-Ra has a strained relationship with her mother-in-law, who looks down on her. Over time, she becomes a mother to a son named No Seo Yoon, whom she loves dearly. However, she faces betrayal from her ex-husband in various ways, including hiding assets and manipulating divorce settlements to his advantage.

With the power and wealth of her ex-husband’s family, they secure custody of their son, and he uses this as leverage to manipulate and blackmail Kim Sa-Ra for his satisfaction. No Yool Sung is depicted as extremely evil and selfish, driven solely by personal gain, fame, and power.

His actions even endanger his mother, whom he manipulates, while she covers up his misdeeds to protect the family’s reputation. As the story unfolds, we will see a lack of genuine love between mother and son, focusing instead on personal goals and upholding the prestige of the family law firm’s reputation.

Despite facing numerous struggles in her personal life, Kim Sa-Ra emerges stronger each time she confronts significant challenges. She finds support in a company called ‘Solution,’ where she forms a close-knit and supportive team that becomes her family.

With time, Dong Ki Joon and Kim Sa Ra also start developing feelings for one another, but Kim Sa Ra keeps her distance because she is traumatized by love and marriage, especially due to what she went through.

Dong Ki Joon does not give up on her but rather stands as her ultimate support throughout. Kim Sa-Ra thrives in her profession as a lawyer, particularly in handling divorce cases and marital conflicts, earning her the nickname ‘Queen of Divorce’ for her skill and expertise.
