A melodramatic miniseries following two fated lovers who meet in high school and are reunited in college.
Help us make the first ever Korean Drama to take place entirely in America!
Korean Dramas are a huge part of a phenomenon called Hallyu (The Korean Wave) which refers to the spread of South Korean culture around the world. Through Hallyu, many countries in Asia have sparked wide interest in South Korean television series referred to simply as Korean Dramas, which are dramatic love stories that rely heavily on character development, a complex plot, and intelligent script-writing.
Education Abroad hopes to contribute to the Korean Wave in America and other English speaking countries by attracting a wider audience to seek interest in Korean Dramas, and therefore start to seek interest in other forms of South Korean culture down the road.
The show is about Danny Han and Heejung Kim. Two seniors who meet in high school and fall in love. Though Heejung is a new foreign exchange student from Korea, Danny is able to make a connection with her. However, when Heejung's father finds out that Danny is from a poor immigrant family with no high ranking name and can't even speak Korean, he quickly rejects their love and sends Heejung back to Korea. Although she cannot forget about Danny, she does as her father wishes, but returns to America for college at a prestigious international university. Danny, heart-broken, vows to never let something like this happen to him again, and goes to Korea himself as soon as he graduates. There he gets a tutoring job teaching English. He returns to America for college about a year later with a firm grasp of the language, culture, and even a Korean name. But what the two never expected was seeing each other again, as they both happen to attend the same prestigious international university!
