Two young women look out to sea on a cold deserted beach on Korea's east coast

Teenagers Suan and Seol form a connection on the sandy beaches of Gangneung – a place they continuously return to in order to find each other.

Suan’s life is turned upside down when famous actress Seol joins her performing arts high school. The two instantly hit it off – their chemistry developing into something much more visceral. With tender performances from by HAN So-hee and HAN Hae-in, YUN Su-ik’s drama is sure to leave audiences wanting more.
