The show boasts an impressive cast including Lee Da-hae, Lee Yeon-hee, Han Ji-hye, Song Seung-heon, Park Hae Jin, Yun Jung Hoon, Rain, Jin-hie Park, and Kim Bum. Set in the backdrop of the tumultuous period of the 1960s and onwards in South Korea, East of Eden is a story of love, brotherhood, and revenge. The story revolves around two brothers, Lee Dong-chul (played by Song Seung-heon) and Lee Dong-wook (played by Yeon Jung-hoon) who are separated at a young age due to their father's death. While Lee Dong-chul is adopted by a wealthy family, Lee Dong-wook is left to fend for himself and eventually ends up in the arms of a ruthless gangster family.

As they grow older, the two brothers end up taking vastly different paths in life. Lee Dong-chul becomes a successful CEO, while Lee Dong-wook turns into a cold-blooded gangster. Things take a dramatic turn when they both fall in love with the same woman, Min Hye-rin (played by Lee Yeon-hee), who is also the daughter of the gangster boss.

The show portrays the characters' struggles as they navigate their way through their complicated relationships with each other. Han Ji-hye plays the character of Gook Young Ran, who is Lee Dong-chul's childhood friend and love interest. Park Hae-jin plays Shin Myung-hoon, a son of a wealthy family and Lee Dong-chul's friend. Jin-hie Park plays the role of Oh Yeon-soo, a woman who runs a bar and who is a friend of Lee Dong-wook.

Rain plays the character of Lee Chang-hoon, a young man who is struggling to get by and ends up getting pulled into the gangster life. Kim Bum plays the character of Lee Dong-cheol's younger brother, Lee Dong-wook's half-brother, and the son of Shin Tae-hwan (played by Jo Min-ki), a powerful and corrupt politician.

As the show progresses, the characters' relationships become increasingly complex, and the plot twists and turns with various obstacles coming their way. The theme of revenge is a constant presence throughout the show as many of the characters are driven by a desire to exact revenge against those who have wronged them.

The show received positive reviews and was praised for its strong performances, especially from the lead actors Song Seung-heon and Lee Yeon-hee. The show's music was also well-received, with a soundtrack that included songs by popular K-pop artists such as Super Junior and Lee Seung-chul.

Overall, East of Eden is a gripping drama that combines elements of romance, action, and drama set against a fascinating historical backdrop. Its complex characters and intricate plot make it a must-watch for fans of Korean dramas.
