The Vineyard Man (Hangul: 포도밭 그 사나이; RR: Podobat Geu Sanai; also known as The Man of the Vineyard) is a 2006 South Korean television series that aired on KBS2. It was adapted from Kim Rang's bestselling book.
The Vineyard Man is a romantic Comedy series featuring beautiful rustic scenery, a lighthearted story and a fresh cast.
It revolves around the life of Lee Ji-hyun (Yoon Eun-hye), a city girl who wants to show the world that beneath her seemingly ordinary characteristics is an extraordinary girl who will someday achieve great things. Ji-hyun is a striving young clothing designer, who hopes to have her own label one day. Her plans are put on hold when she reluctantly takes up a tempting offer from her grand-uncle. She has to work one year in her grand-uncle's vineyard in order to inherit it. In the vineyard, the challenge of adjusting to country life is made more difficult when she has to learn how to grow grapes under the supervision of the seemingly uncouth and unsympathetic man in charge of the vineyard, Jang Taek-gi (Oh Man-seok).
Amidst conflicts and trials, Ji-hyun and Taek-gi learn to care for each other. As time goes by, Ji-hyun finds herself falling in love with the vineyard and the man in it.
Through the mundane process of grape farming and the personal relationship of Ji-hyun and Taek-gi, this story portrays how beauty and kindness can be found in everything and everyone when one looks beyond the surface. Feat
