A Thousand Kisses (Hangul: 천번의 입맞춤; RR: Cheonbeon-ui Immatchum) is a 2011 South Korean television series, starring Seo Young-hee, Ji Hyun-woo, Ryu Jin and Kim So-eun. It explores the question of age differences in romance. It aired on MBC from August 20, 2011 to February 5, 2012 on Saturdays and Sundays at 20:40 for 50 episodes.



Woo Joo-young (Seo Young-hee) is the eldest daughter in the family and have come through hardships in life thanks to her bright and caring personality. Her husband Tae-kyung has an affair which ends in their divorce. One day, Joo-young takes her son Chan-noh to a soccer game and meets Jang Woo-bin (Ji Hyun-woo), a former national soccer player who’s now a sports agent. Chan-noh warms to Woo-bin and this leads to a close friendship between Joo-young and Woo-bin. Woo-bin romances the divorced single mom, but their differences in age, social status and life experience create obstacles to their relationship.

Jang Byung-doo (Lee Soon-jae) is the chaebol head of a resort group who falls in love with his caregiver Yoo Ji-sun (Cha Hwa-yeon), and they marry. (In real life the actors have a 25-year age gap; Lee is 75 and Cha is 50.)

Meanwhile, the chaebol’s son Jang Woo-jin (Ryu Jin) is the cold and haughty planning manager at his father’s resort, who has a strained relationship with his father marked by lingering resentment — he feels Dad showed little kindness to his mother, who died of a hereditary illness. Woo Joo-mi (Kim So-eun) is a freelance reporter for a magazine who doesn’t remember her own mother’s face, having been raised by her older sister Joo-young and grandmother. She falls for Woo-jin at first sight despite their 9-year age difference, and thanks to her proactive personality, tackles her crush head-on. Rather than suffering from lovesickness on her own, she goes after him assertively, and wins him over by melting his icy exterior with her optimistic, affectionate nature.
