Korean dramas series gives you that fulfilling pleasure. Their story-line comes packed with all the emotions to make you cry, smile and could even make you burst out laughing. In retrospect, Jumong was the first series that made me fall in love with Korean dramas and since then I’ve watched more than I. Drama Series - Sad Love Story 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.

From the moment they meet, Jon-young (Kwon Sang-woo) and the blind Hye-in (Kim Hee-sun) share an instant connection. Young and naïve, they believe that nothing can change their love. Life, however, pulls them in opposite directions. Jon-young is sent to Seoul, while Hye-in immigrates to America. Misleadingly informed that Jon-young is dead, Hye-in struggles to begin a new life alone. Years later, Hye-in returns to Seoul. With her eyesight restored, she is now a singer happily engaged to her producer Gun-woo (Yeon Jung-hoon). Everything changes though when Gun-woo's composer friend turns out to be none other than Jon-young. He instantly recognizes her, but Hye-in has never seen Jun-young before. When love is no longer simple and blind, can Hye-in and Jun-young still find their way back to each other? This series is a series of love, death and suspense.
