People like to say, “Love knows no national boundaries or age.” “Love is fate.” or “Love has the power to overcome all difficulties.” However, what is the ultimate stage of love? Marriage? This could sound ridiculously old-fashioned, especially to the younger generation. They still fall in love of course, but becoming a part of a system such as marriage can be troublesome, at best. And its responsibility is bothersome, as well. Most of all, it’s unimaginable for many young people to give up their dreams for love and marriage. Put in a nice way, they are very practical, open-minded and liberal about their love life. However, they are selfish about love at the same time. They are the generation of instant gratification. They still fall in love, but they refuse to give up their free life styles. They still get married, but they don’t give up their careers. Their love life is just a personal choice, and they strongly resent being judged by other people’s standards of right and wrong.

However, with love comes responsibility. Loving someone is about being responsible for your own feelings and your own decisions. Loving someone is agreeing to take responsibility for yourself and the person you love.

Han Seung-Wan (Kim Jae-Won)
He's young and immature. He's a party animal and a frequent patron of the dance clubs around town. His father owns a mineral water company. He's handsome and cool, so he's popular everywhere he goes. He believes that women can't help but loving him. He majors in aeronautics. After graduation, he becomes a co-pilot for Sky Castle Airlines. His first love is Chae-young and he goes to Singapore to see her, but he meets Se-jin there, instead. When he first meets Se-jin, she's heartbroken because of her previous relationship. He just wants to make her feel better. He finds her cute. It must be the moonlight, or the wine or the music. At any rate, he always does as he pleases. But he becomes a father at the age of 21! His own father gets furious and orders him to marry Se-jin. He's about to be kicked out of the family. He doesn't have any other choice. He gets married but he didn't legalize the marriage. He lives on the money that his father sends for the baby. He dreams of getting divorced once his daughter gets old enough to go to a daycare centre. He still thinks about his first love, Chae-young. To him, meeting Se-jin was the worst thing that ever happened in his life. He would do anything it takes if only he could go back in time and fix everything. However, his daughter seems to be the cutest child in the world. He didn't even dream that he would learn love from this little girl....

Jeong Se-Jin (Eugene)
She's very unique, outgoing and adventurous but she's also a dreamer. She's curious and stubborn. She sometimes sets up a tent in the room and reads a book with a flashlight. She became a catholic after reading "The Keys to the Kingdom" by A.J Cronin. It's not easy to imagine her as a serious catholic because of her unusual personality, but she is. She wanted to be a diplomat, but she ends up getting a job at a travel agency. She has a daughter and a husband. She unexpectedly gets pregnant while traveling as a college student. She can't give up the baby since she's a catholic. She decides to raise her baby by herself, but she gets married, thanks to her sister's plan. Her life becomes gloomy. Her married life isn't anything like she expected. It's a war. She and her husband keep fighting and ignoring each other. He even brings his girlfriend home. She doesn't have any fun in life anymore. One day, a new neighbor, Min Do-hyeon moves in. Little by little, she becomes attracted to him. But he's an old friend of her husband's. Nothing seems to go well in her life....

Min Do-Hyeon (Lee Ji-Hoon)
He's such a gentleman with good manners. He always seems neat and refined. He has been successful throughout his life, but he's not interested in competing with others. He's very cynical; nothing really matters to him. He's the type of person that average people love to hate. He's the lovechild of the late founder of Sky Castle Airlines, Min Dae-seok. His biological mother died a long time ago and he was adopted and raised by Jang Eun-jo, the wife of Min Dae-seok. The relationship between Min Do-hyeon and Han Seung-wan is very unusual. While Seung-wan is very conscious about Do-hyeon and considers him a rival, Min Do-hyeon doesn't seem to care so much. Do-hyeon just enjoys Seung-wan's challenge. Seung-wan's girlfriend, Chae-young is interested in him. He's also attracted to her. But Chae-young goes back to Seung-wan all of a sudden. He feels betrayed and lost for the first time in his life. He realizes that Se-jin is heartbroken as well because of Chae-young. He develops a friendly feeling toward her...

Lee Chae-Young (Han Eun-Jung)
She's gorgeous, proud, sexy and arrogant. But sometimes she can be quite naive and sweet. She's very good at changing herself to fit the way she wants other people to think of her. No one doubts that she comes from a decent family and has a good education. However, in reality, she knows pain and sadness in life more than anyone. Her mother was the mistress of a Japanese businessman. She's ashamed of her background and tries to escape from it. Her mother went to Japan to look for her father only to realize she'd been dumped. Her mother opens a bar in Japan and lives there. Her mother was a part of her life she wanted to hide anyway. She thinks marrying a decent man from a good family will provide what she doesn't have and complete her life. Now, she's looking for the man who can bring her everything she dreams of. She doesn't mind being a two-timer if necessary. She has Seung-wan and Do-hyeon wrapped around her little finger. She introduces herself as a daughter of a successful businesswoman in Japan....
