The Live Your Own Life plot

Hyo Shim, a personal trainer at TS Fitness, has forged a thriving career, but her familial responsibilities begin to burden her.

As the sole sister among four siblings, she shoulders undesirable tasks and financial strains for her eldest brother, solely focused on his own family, her intelligent yet self-centered second eldest brother, and her youngest brother, chasing elusive financial gains.

Her mother, unfortunately, allies herself with Hyo Shim’s brothers, leaving her with little support.

Amidst this turmoil, Kang Tae Ho, a meticulous new gym member, becomes the tipping point.

Determined to reclaim control over her life, Hyo Shim resolves to prioritize her own well-being, taking the crucial first step towards inner peace.
