Summary*:
Ji-hyun is an aspiring scriptwriter and
Kang-wook is a plastic surgeon.  They
meet while on vacation in Thailand.  
Without knowing anything about each other,
they have a one-night stand.  However, it
turns out that they each have a "significant
other" back in Korea.  Ji-hyun is engaged to
Jong-hyuk, the son of a powerful
businessman.  Kang-wook has a high
school sweetheart (Min-kyung) that he is on
the verge of marrying.  The story goes on
about how both Ji-hyun and Kang-wook
can't forget their passionate night together,
but try to suppress their feelings for each
other because of their responsibilities to
their families and their respective fiance(e).

Factoid*:  This drama illustrates the
subservient role of women in Korean
culture.  Ji-hyun had to literally beg her
husband and his family to allow her to work
after marriage.
