In elementary school, a young boy, Suh Joon-young (played by Kwon Sang-woo), meets a pretty little blind girl named Park Hae-in (played by Kim Hee Sun). Joon-young is constantly teased because his mum is the owner of a nightclub, and he first meets Hae-in when her aunt is hired as a singer at the club. In the beginning, Joon-young despises Hae-in, but as they grow closer they fall in love. Their childhood goes on and finishes in the first episode.
I forgot how much I paid for it, probably closer to $30. The material is displayed in 720p only and we have to use the HDTV's stretch functions to get a larger picture, so the picture is not really sharp. English subtitle appears to be hard-coded, but the font looks like it's printed out with a low-resolution dot-matrix printer where the characters don't always line up, and was running out of ink. It's readable, but definitely an eye-strain. However, this poor font lasted throughout the first 6-7 episodes. The plot is about young friendship and love. The female lead (pretty) started out blind due to an illness, and the story was quite touching in the first 5-6 episodes. At that point, the plot turned too unhappy for my wife to continue to watch(!?). There's a very nice song written by the male protagonist and sung near the end by the female lead. Since I've still haven't watched the rest of the movie, I can't comment more about the story.
