He based his script on many of the issues that were happening in Afghanistan and the stories he had been collecting from people like Tom Freston who have been going there for decades.
Young-Woo, an innocent girl who dreams of a fairytale is bound to have an arranged marriage with Seul-Woo, who, unlike her has an abrasive personality. A bittersweet love story about a young couple who are exactly the opposites; a cat and a dog.
