High School Love On quotes (Korean Drama)

People I know run from injustice and hurt others to protect themselves but you are different from the people I know.

A crush is not bad, it is painful.

~Shin Woo Hyun

 

Just say that it hurts when it hurts. Don’t lie.

Why are humans acting like that? They do what they don’t mean to.

~Lee Seul Bi

 

I seem to be becoming a monster but I can’t help it.

Leave when I let you. If not, I may hold you back.

~Hwang Sung Yeol

 

Love is to feel each other’s pain and even share each other’s pain.

~An angel who became human

 

Does love make your tears warm?

If you don’t wait, I will just have to wait for you to come back.

~Yang Tae Ho

 

I am sure it gets as warm as how much you love someone.

~Kim Joo-ah

starring Kang Ji Hwan as Lee Jin Soo, Park Si Yeon as Seo Eun Young and Ham Eun Jung as Kang Seung Yeon.

Plot: Lee Jin Soo made it big after writing several thriller/crime novels and establishing himself as a talented novelist. He works for Seo Eun Young, the owner of the biggest publishing company in Korea and has a long-time friendship with her. Lee Jin Soo has lots of fans and people think that he is courteous but what no one knows is that he is actually weird and sarcastic. The one who has to cope with him and his habits is his secretary, Kang Seung Yeon, who begged him for this job to become a professional instead of the below-average girl that she really is.

Zoom into characters: The more Jin Soo is polite to someone, the more the person is a stranger or someone he dislikes. He is a famous novelist but he rejects any form of publicity such as autograph signing events. Jin Soo has a sad past and Eun Young helped Jin Soo continue living by making him write. After Eun Young is betrayed by her boyfriend, she starts to like Jin Soo who knows her well. Kang Seung Yeon does not have a good job and mans a cafe. She is suddenly employed as Jin Soo’s secretary but it is just her senior doing. Jin Soo does not say much but throws away the coffee she brewed and the pencils she sharpened behind her back, even making her translate a book downstairs so that he can concentrate. After Seung Yeon finds out, she promises to become the kind of secretary that Jin Soo is keen to hire, enduring all sorts of torture and gradually becomes attached to him.
