Drama Korea: Endless Love

Berikut adalah sinopsis film drama Korea berseri yang pernah ditayangkan di salah satu televisi swasta nasional dan digandrungi sekitar awal tahun 2000, Endless Love.

Episode 1 :
In this first episode, we are introduced to the wealthy Yun family, composed of father, mother, 17ish year old brother (Joon-Suh) and 14 year old sister (Eun-suh). Joon-Suh and Eun-Suh have a teasing, but very loving relationship, with big brother always taking care of younger sister. At school, Eun-Suh has a volatile relationship with Shin-ae, the smart but vile girl from the other side of the tracks.

The parents learn that Eun-Suh is not their biological daughter and meet Mrs. Choi, the Mother of their daughter. Mrs. Choi is a widowed, BattleAxe who runs an awful dump of a diner that only serves a grim stew and who struggles everyday to try to make ends meet; it's no wonder Shin-ae is as she is.

Mr and Mrs Yan struggle with what they should do next, trying to come to terms with the situation. Should they switch daughters? Should they tell their Eun-Suh? Should they meet Shin-ae?

At school, Joon-Suh makes a painting to accompany Shin-ae's poem, in exchange for Shin-ae leaving Eun-Juh alone. Poem and painting are displayed at a big gathering at the school. Here, the Yan family and the Choi family meet and the stark truth sits before us: Shin-ae is the Yan's true daughter and Eun-Juh is Mrs. Choi's biological daughter.

Episode 2 :

Mr and Mrs Yan have now seen their daughter for the first time and are brought ever-more into Mrs. Choi's life. They discover that her husband is dead and that her son is a thug. Is that the environment for their biological daughter? While Mr. Yan reaches out to Shin-ae, going as far as buying her a stuffed animal, Mrs. Yan willfully refuses to open up. For Mrs Choi, life is not easy and realizing that her daughter is not her own, brings her own pitiful state more starkly into view.
The tension between the girls escalates when the girls learn the truth. And by the end, the girls switch positions as Shin-ae desperately wants to leave her hard life and Eun-Suh knows that she must go to her real mother.

Episode 3 :

Eun-suh is now CHOI Eun-Suh and Shin-ae is now firmly entrenched as YOON Shin-ae as the girls begin life in their new homes. For Shin-ae, life is difficult being in the shadow of beloved Eun-suh and thus she lashes out; for Eun-suh, she faces her life with a Cinderella-ish optimism and warmth.
For Mr and Mrs Yoon, the emotional struggles continue. Mr Yoon has agreed to take a position in the United States and the familiy will be moving there, taking Joon-Suh and Shin-ae, but they cannot bear the thought of "abandoning Eun-suh in that awful place." Mrs. Yoon meets with Mrs. Choi and asks to take and raise Eun-suh. Mrs. Choi agrees, but Eun-suh won't go. She knows she must stay with her mother and must let the Yoons go.

It's now 9 years later and an adult Joon-suh returns. He's about to have his engagement party where he formally introduces Yumi, a fellow artist he met in the United States, as his fiancee. First, he wants to find his long-lost "sister", Eun-suh, but she's moved several times since and there's no finding her. Instead, he meets up with his old friend, Tae-suhk.
Tae-suhk is the wealthy, good-for-nothing, lazy son of the Hotel Owner; he's also engaging, vivacious, charismatic, and fun. He's the William Holden character in SABRINA and he's been banished to run the hotel (the duties which he suitably ignores).

CHOI Eun-suh works at the Hotel as a phone operator and is having continual monetary troubles. She still lives with her mother, who now runs a little corner shop. ****ther, they eke out a bare living.
