In the present 21st century, Seo In Ha’s son and Kim Yoon Hee’s daughter meet and fall in love. Now, will they become a couple ?
2012 Jang Hana (24 years old/ Research student, Gardener)
If you give trees love, they wil grow well.
Never did I thought that the tree in my heart will grow so big that I can no longer hide it.
She is the daughter of Yoonhee and Jang Siheon, who was an international student that Yoonhee met in USA.
A clear-headed, soft and occasionally annoying girl, she used to study gardening in Japan.
Hana believes that plants and humans are inked through their hearts and will talk to sick plants and sing songs to them, sometimes surprising other people. But as you get to know Hana more, you will be mesmerized by her healthy charisma. She has an annoying but upright character, and has an aura around her that makes people happy.
Her city-like standards and preferences gave White Garden employees a new experience.
Hana had decided to find her mother’s first love as her mother had been unable to forget him. In her search, she went to Hokkaido, where she met the mega-jerk SeoJun! He picks at Hana’s country-like clothes without regards for her feelings. He does the same to everything she does. It was as if SeoJun was born to insult people and nothing else. Hana’s once peaceful life will be irrevocably changed by this meeting.
Now 24, Hana’s first love story will begin soon.
2012 Seo Jun
Seo Joon: I’m just myself. No one can impinge me. I’m In Ha’s son.
He is a photographer who can shoot unique photos; who has outstanding handsome face; who also has successful career overseas.
He has “Prince Symptoms”
Like he is always right; he is the best; he doesn’t care how other people look at him.
He speaks of his mind frankly wherever he is. He has bitter tongue which he won’t care who you are.
But ironically, he is the photographer who can perfectly shows people’s charisma in his photos.
Seo Jun is casual for his love life. He has the fame of being Casanova in the business.
People say about him:” 3 seconds for girls to fell for him”.
He always says this to his girls:” I don’t believe in love. My father is miserable because he can never forget his first love. And that was the tragedy to my mother. I don’t want a love like that.”
For shooting a photobook, he came to Japan and there, he met a girl that he could never predicate, Ha Na.
In his dictionary of fashion there is no way you can find Ha Na, the saucebox. He wouldn’t give in on her by any chance.
When he was looking for sceneries with his lens, he caught a moment of Ha Na. Her innocent face suddenly made him feel that he has a heart attack, his heart was beating like crazy.
Even he couldn’t believe it; and he kept denying it, but from the moment he met Ha Na, his life and his feeling are all become a mess.
Lee Sun Ho
Son of Lee Doon Wook (In Ha’s friend) and friend of Seo Joon, a doctor, has a warm heart and nice guy compare to mean sharp tongue Seo Joon. He has a younger sister, who is a popular model, has “Princess Symptoms”…

First love, the more you are trying to grab it, the more it get slipped through your fingers.

32 years ago, he let Yoon Hee leave him. When he was desperate, it was Hye Jung besides him and staying with him.
He and Hye Jun got married. The mirage lasted for 10 years. When Seo Jun 10 years old, Hye Jung asked for a divorce.
He never forget Yoon Hee for a single moment. He can not lie and hide his feeling, even just for a little bit, it will show on his face.
In Ha felt guilty for hurting others because that he can’t get out of his past feeling. So he just wants to have a quiet life.
But, after past his 50s, he and Yoon Hee met again. She is still as the Yoon Hee many years ago, delicate and beautiful just appeared by his side.
This time, even for being selfish, he won’t want to miss her again
