The first episode of "City of the Sun" caught viewers' eyes from the beginning starting with its spectacular and powerful car chasing scenes and the scene where the lead, Kang Tae-yang (Kim Jun) was chased after by mysterious gangsters.

However, his rival as well as a longtime lover, Han Ji-soo (Song Chae-yoon) was feeling baffled as someone like him, who graduated from a prominent university as a top student in construction engineering major decided to work for a small sub-contractor company instead of a large general construction company.
Han Ji-soo works for Hanguk Construction and shares a special feeling with So Woo-jin (Jung Min), who is the general manager of the headquarter of the department she works for. He is also a son of the owner of the company.
Kang Tae-yang also encountered So Hye-jin (Jung Joo-yeon), the youngest daughter of the owner of Hanguk Construction.
