Synopsis

Jang-il, the smartest of the school, and Seon-Woo, the strongest kid in Yeosu, are best friends. Influenced by Jang-il, Seon-Woo starts studying and working hard towards his dream. However, all of a sudden, Seon-Woo's guardian, Kyung-pil, dies a mysterious death and Seon-Woo becomes blind while investigating on the case. Soo Mi witnesses the scene that Jang-il attacks Seon-Woo but remains silent on it and waits for the right moment. Ji-won, who is a volunteer reader for visually impaired people, meets Seon-Woo by chance and they fall in love. Despite his strong feelings for Ji-won, however, Seon-wu breaks up with Ji-won so she can have a better life. 13 years have passed. Jang-il becomes a special prosecutor. Seon-wu becomes a young CEO of Loyal Tree, an investment trust company. Ji-won works as a VIP party planner at a five-star hotel. And Soo Mi becomes a hyperrealism painter.

I reguarly watched this show on Kapamilya GOLD last year. It was rather action-packed than depressing, and the finale was so touching in the sense that Jeric didn't show up again after he jumped into the sea!
