I watched this drama on Hulu
I have had a lot of people ask me about how this drama was, so I will go ahead and do a review/summary of it. I did like this drama because it was a very sweet, romantic, and endearing drama (and Jang Geun Suk is just fabulous no matter what he does lol). However, it was extremely predictable and there was nothing particularly exciting or thrilling about it. If you are looking for an exciting and suspenseful drama, this is definitely not it. However, if you are just looking for a laid back, sweet, warm and fuzzy drama with a happy ending, this is a winner. I would give it a 3 out of 5 stars for me personally, because though I did enjoy it, I really love a good dramedy, and this was a little too on the serious side for my taste. It did not necessarily sweep me off my feet, but it is definitely worth a watch if you are feeling girly and need a simple love story and a handsome face to look at 🙂
Seo In Ha is a college art student in the 1970s who has many admirers, but until he meets Kim Yoon Hee, was not very interested in girls. He runs into her (literally) one day and accidently knocks her books out of her hands. He then says that it only took him 3 seconds to fall in love with her. However, it just so happens that his best friend meets her at a bus stop and begins to like her as well. Because of In Ha’s selfless nature, he decides that he will not take her from his friend. However, Yoon Hee returns In Ha’s feelings and eventually they end up together despite In Ha’s efforts to allow his friend’s happiness before his own. Soon after they begin dating, Yoon Hee finds out that she is being sent to the U.S. in order to get treatment for a chronic illness that she has kept a secret from In Ha. She leaves without telling him, only leaving him a letter. The two of them do not see each other for years on end and move on with their own separate lives, get married and have their own families.
The story then picks up in the future and changes focus to their children.
Seo Joon is a talented and sought after fashion photographer in modern day South Korea with a handsome face, but a bad attitude and a chip on his shoulder. He is arrogant and big time play boy. He bumps into Jung Ha Na one day (literally) and Ha Na’s cell phone falls into his jacket pocket. Later when Ha Na discovers that she has lost her phone she calls it only to find that it is Joon who has accidentally ended up with it. Joon however, who cannot be bothered to deal with other people’s problems, is not at all helpful in returning the phone at first. They argue and bicker and end up in several awkward situations together before she finally gets her phone back and they both return home, believing they will never see each other again. Joon for the first time in his life has really fallen for someone, and is upset that they are parting ways, but will not admit it. Through happenstance they run into each other again in Seoul and she actually ends up living in Joon’s studio temporarily. At first they bicker and fight again, resisting their feelings towards one another, but eventually Joon cannot fight it and makes her his. Once together, they are blissfully happy and in love until they discover that their parents are long lost college lovers that just found each other and reunited. Not knowing what to do, they try to break up and stay away from each other as much as possible in order to allow their parents to be happy. However, once their parents find out, they want only for their children to be happy and have the chance they never had. Eventually their parents move to America so that Yoon Hee can be treated for her illness and In Ha can care for her as a friend, allowing Joon and Ha Na to stay together, get married and live the happily ever after that their parents never were able to have.
