Lee Jang-woo (So Ji-sub) would do anything for his childhood sweetheart Soo-yeon (Kim Ha-neul). When Soo-yeon's family falls on hard times, he joins the army in order to earn money to pay for her tuition. While Jang-woo is on his tour of duty, Soo-yeon studies hard and spends her time helping injured soldiers as a doctor. She patiently awaits Jang-woo's return, but one day receives word that he has died in combat. Fate brings another man into her life: Shin Tae-ho, a handsome and generous officer who graduated from the army academy at the top of his class. Though she can't forget Jang-woo, Soo-yeon finally decides to leave the past behind her and marry Tae-ho. On the eve of their wedding, Jang-woo suddenly appears again, revealing that the death notice had been a mistake. He had, in fact, been counting the days until he can return home and reunite with his lover. The next morning - June 25, 1950 - the North Korean army invades South Korea, marking the start of the Korean War. With their lives and love already in turmoil, both Jang-woo and Tae-ho are sent north to the battlefield.

This was So Ji-sub and Kim Ha-neul's first acting collaboration after they were paired in a commercial shoot for fashion brand Storm in 1997. It was also Kim and Yoon Kye-sang's onscreen reunion following the 2008 film Lovers of Six Years.
In preparation for their roles, the lead actors underwent military training with Korea's Fifth Division Army.
Expectations were high for the ₩13 million big-budget war epic, and it was sold to Japan before it premiered in Korea. But the series did not achieve high ratings, averaging 6% for its run.
