A love that is unfamiliar but sad.
Love is an empty space that can never be filled in
A changing world with changing people...
In this rapidly changing world, people are caught off guard by new events and have a hard time adapting to the times. Some types of taboo behavior are now acceptable and people even flaunt it. The confusion in social values has become an individual problem that people must grapple with by themselves.
One middle-aged couple faces a crisis as the foundation of their family crumbles.
When they reveal their true desires to each other, it takes on the form of a question to viewers on how important it is to reconnect with the values that are in disarray around us.
A melodramatic story and mystery...
A high-priced luxury apartment in the downtown area of Seoul. In this peaceful neighborhood, one young man committed suicide under uncertain circumstances.
Park Byeong-shik, a retired detective, discovers that the dead man is Lee Joon-soo, a fugitive he had been pursuing for years before he left the force. He picks up clues to solve the uncertain cause of his death.
The story begins with events that had happened six months before the man died.
Did Lee Joon-soo really kill himself? He had a lover named Hong Da-ae.
And somehow he was also linked to middle aged housewife named Yoon Hye-jin. But what exactly was their relationship? The drama traces events in the past and present to reveal the intricate web of story arcs.
More sophisticated and more luxurious...
The first episode was shot on location in Sapporo for three weeks to capture scenes of beautiful snow-capped mountains. The production quality of the show is very high as each scene was meticulously shot with great attention to small details and angle shots.
