The show, which is actually shot in Los Angeles, revolves around two intelligent men from prestigious families fighting over the love of one beautiful and kind-hearted girl, a medical school student from a poor family. The drama stars popular actors Kim Tae-hee, Kim Rae-won, and Lee Jeong-jin, who wear white sports shirts under V-neck sweaters; a preppy fashion sense long associated with Ivy League schools.
``Love Story in Harvard'' recorded a 16.8 percent viewing rate, the highest among other dramas in the same time slot. Reflecting its popularity, the Internet message board for the show has been filled with comments ranging from predictions to how the love triangle will develop to questions about the English ability of the show's Korean stars.
The hit new drama Love Story in Harvard is exactly that: a young love story set at the famed Ivy League school in the United States. Kim Rae Won (My Little Bride, Rooftop Room Cat) stars as Kim Hyung Woo, a 1st year law student at Harvard Law who enters into a rivalry with classmate Hong Jung Min (Lee Chong Jin) for the affections of beautiful medical student Lee Soo In (Kim Tae Hee of Stairway to Heaven). The two men are both from prestigious families, while Soo In is from a poor family. Can the trio resolve their romantic differences and chase their dreams at the same time?
Love Story in Harvard received a sizable audience share when it was first broadcast in 2004. The drama makes its long-awaited home video debut with this DVD set, which includes all 16 episodes with English subtitles to placate the ever-loyal English-speaking K-Drama fanbase.
