A sappy love story.
Jae-kyung had turned 18 and he is eligible to inherit his late grandfather's vast amount of fortunes. He went out with his friends and became arrogant in his ways.

But, there was a catch in the will his grandfather left behind. He has to graduate from a small high school in the countryside because if that did not happened, he cannot totally inherit the entire fortune. Naturally it drove Jae-kyung mad. For someone who has quite an amount of money in his bank account, it was like a slap in the face.

When he arrived at the place, he then realised how rural it was. The behaviour, mannerisms of the local people astounded him. There, he met the girl whom he actually once met many years ago when they were younger. It's his fellow classmate at his new school - Eun-hwan. He soon found out she had an illness which could not be cured. But Eun-hwan put on a brave face and pretended that nothing had happened and went on with her part-time job at the gas station and juggling with her studies at the same time. It was during those times Jae-kyung realises how much he likes her.

It might be a sappy love story as the summary title has stated, but it's just a beautiful story which will move one who is watching it.
