Synopsis

There’s no ‘nobody.’ Everybody is once an
important person to somebody. The Life Story of Beautiful-minded
People ‘The true meaning and hope of life can be learned from
ordinary people.’What makes Love Truly different from other
stories is its characters; those who work in the Blue House
(Korean presidential residence). This drama introduces the
viewers the place considered mysterious and tabooed in TV dramas.
It also features the people working inside the most unknown place
in the country.

Even though the presidential residence is the
main setting of the story, the main characters of the story
aren’t the presidential family. The story focuses on the true
residents of the Blue House; those who have always been in the
very center of the history, but remained nameless for many years.
In this story, the viewers will meet the presidential cook,
kitchen staff, a carpenter, a photographer, bodyguards and other
workers.

These people are working in the most unusual and
interesting place in Korea. Nobody recognizes their hard work,
but they strongly believe that the food they cook, the door they
fix, and a phone call they answer can make a difference. They
take their work very seriously and always do their best. The
story features the simple, but noble spirit of those who love
their job and work hard. Therefore, the Blue House in this story
represents the workplace of the hardest working people in the
country, rather than the secret and off-limits presidential
residence.

Cast

Yeo, Bong-soon (Actor: Yu Jin): 25 years old,
cook

She’s a happy, fun-loving, honest and
unpredictable person. She loves daydreaming. She’s always
thinking about something. She’s such a bookworm. Her little room
is filled with stacks of books. She loves eating. She recently
realizes that she’s a gifted cook. She used to live with her
grandmother in the middle of nowhere. Since she was completely
out of touch with the world, she seems like an alien to other
people. She runs into problems at every corner in the bustling
metropolis of Seoul. She gets carsick all the time. She speaks
with a very thick Kang-won (East province of Korea) accent. For
most people, it’s almost impossible to understand exactly what
she says. However, it’s easy to like her. She’s incredibly
diligent. She’s always on the move. She gets up at 4 in the
morning as she used to do in her hometown. Her assiduity bothers
Bong-ki who is extremely lazy. Soon she realizes that there isn’t
much to do in the city at 4 in the morning, so she takes a job
delivering milk. Her neighbors have hard time understanding her.
For them, her interest in other people’s business seems
unnecessary. They aren’t used to getting help that they don’t ask
for. However, as time goes by, they start opening their hearts
and accept her.

Nam, Bong-ki (Actor: Lee, Min-ki): 28 years old,
bodyguard

He’s tall and good-looking. His physical
appearance seems almost perfect. However, he’s terribly lazy and
self-centered. He’s such a player and he looks down on women.
He’s the kind of person that people love to hate. He doesn’t want
to get involved in other people’s lives. He’s a very
individualistic and selfish person. He tries to avoid anything
that requires responsibility. He doesn’t have any problem saying
no when someone asks for his help. He doesn’t feel bad
about anything. He loves shoes and collects them. He often argues
with his father who isn’t happy with his being shallow.
Appearance means everything to him. He’s very popular with women.
He knows many women. He even categorizes them by appearance.
According to his classification, Bong-soon belongs to the lowest
group. He never wastes his money and time on the ‘unqualified’
women. He once fell in love with a woman. She was his high school
sweetheart. However, after his girlfriend of 7 years left him to
marry a doctor, he hates all the doctors in the world. He becomes
the bodyguard of the president’s son, Jang Jun-won. Ironically,
he’s a doctor. Bong-ki can never understand Jun-won. ‘How can a
married man fall for another woman? How can any man fall for
Bong-soon?’ However, protecting this man is his job. He’s
confused; it seems that he’s instead protecting Bong-soon from
Jun-won. He follows Jun-won everywhere; the hospital, operation
room, rest room and his house.

Jang Jun-won (Actor: Ryu Jin): 31 years old, the
son of the president

He’s always smiling. He’s as handsome as a movie
star. He’s very intelligent and kind. The women in the hospital
where he’s working all agree that he’s the sexiest doctor in the
country. He’s generous, modest and warm-hearted. He’s very
popular with his patients. It’s hard to believe that he’s the son
of the president. He’s not interested in the way he looks. In
truth, he doesn’t have time to worry about such things. His hair
is usually messy and his clothes aren’t always clean. Judging by
appearance, Bong-ki looks more like the son of an important
person. Only a few people know that his father is the president.
Without knowing that Jun-won has a bodyguard, people find it
strange that Bong-ki is always following Jun-won. He’s been
married for five years. He has a five-year-old daughter. His wife
has been suffering from Alzheimer’s disease for three years.
Jun-won feels helpless about the fact that he can’t do anything
to make her better. His in-laws want him to get a divorce and
start a new life. However, he can’t give up on his wife unless
she wants to leave him.

*Characters surrounding Bong-soon*

Lee Han-sook (47 years old /Geum Bo-rah)

As woman as one can be, a woman whose womanhood
is stronger that motherhood, and as meek and sentimental as she
can be. She is still very beautiful but was even more stunning
when she was younger and was once able to become an actress and
still dwells upon those days. She can sometimes be ignorant,
frivolous and boastful. She has a lot of affection, which keeps
guys surrounding her, but her boasting also gets her into a lot
of trouble. As well, the fact that she has a lot of grudges held
inside her heart causes her to have a lot of tears. Her fate
tells her that if she had become an actor or something of that
sort she would’ve become big, but because she didn’t
go into that field she thinks that her life is filled with twists
and turns. Every guy she has met has had some kind of problem,
and in order to fix her fate she got married to a man with
children and lots of money. Three years into their marriage,
however, he died in an unexpected accident. Eventually she ended
up taking care of all his children. She also loses all the assets
he left her to all sorts of frauds, and the job she took in order
to make a living, being an extra for different TV shows, is her
current job. This job is where she met Hyun-joon’s father; a
complete romantic who is 5 years younger than her and marries her
despite his family’s protests, because he loves her. The son she
had with him is Hyun-joon, but this awesome romantic tragically
leaves her for his new love 7 years into their marriage.

Geum Soo-kyeong (19 years old /Shin
Min-hee) Han-sook’s stepdaughter.

The daughter of Han-sook’s second husband’s first
wife, a senior in high school, who looks like she’s in her
mid-twenties when not wearing her school uniform because of her
stunning supermodel body and looks. A complete rebellious girl
and juvenile delinquent, who transfers from this school to that
school in order to avoid getting kicked out of school, her
misdeeds are not done secretly but in order to drive her
stepmother insane because she hates her to death. Like a child
planning on how to make Han-sook’s life unbearably miserable she
endlessly has her called to school and to the police department.
There was a time when she opened her heart up to her stepmother;
the time when she promised to take care of her and her sibling
like her own children but the very same woman who promised to
take care of them went ahead and got married to another young
man, taking them with her. There were days when she wanted to
take her sibling and run away to an orphanage but she
didn’t have enough courage to actually do it. Her
stepmother took her and her sibling by the hand and awkwardly
walked into her new husband’s house. Soo-kyeong can not forget
the feeling of humiliation she felt that day watching her
stepmother laugh and flirt in the arms of another guy, forgetting
about her father. She decided never to forgive her stepmother
from that day on and herself for still being next to her
stepmother and not being able to leave her. Soo-kyeong, cynical
and cold, a girl who has nothing she wants to do or be; a girl is
suffering severely from growing pains.

*Characters surrounding Bong-ki*

Nam Dae-shik (61 years old /Bong-ki’s
father-Jang Yeong)

A character who never wears socks and wears his
pants folded up all year long. A hot-tempered perfectionist. He
came into the Blue House in charge of the greenhouse and has been
working there as a carpenter for 30 years. He has worked there
the longest and has served 7 presidents during his time there. He
worked at the general affairs secretary’s office and retired, but
because of his excellent work skills he was called back to work
on a contract basis. He knows about every single corner of the
Blue House and there is not a place in the building which hasn’t
been touched by him, so his existence is absolutely needed. His
one super secret is that he’s fallen in love! There is
absolutely not a single feminine trait on this woman but
interestingly enough every time he sees her, his heart beats.
Love at such an old age… The tingling feeling, the loneliness,
the embarrassments…

Lee Sang-jik (48 years old /Chief of the Blue
House Guard Department-Yoon Seung-won) The best bodyguard, a man
who has served 3 successive presidents. A professional with an
upright nature and strong will to get things done. He is one of
the bodyguards that all the juniors look up to and want to be
like. He never gets mixed up with official or personal matters,
in fact he’s so precise that at an unofficial occasion or event
he can be fun and easygoing, but when at work he is sharp, full
of charisma and a strict trainer of his juniors. His one goal
these days is to train a guard to take his place. He watches
Bong-ki and Joo-yeup closely and sometimes makes them compete
with one another, purposely getting them upset and driving them
through extra hard trainings. Out of all the butlers in the Blue
House they are the most powerful but have poor economic power. He
has thrown all his money into sending his wife, son and daughter
abroad to study and lives a miserable life in his small single
room. The fact that he lives in a small, rented room at Bong-ki’s
house is his biggest secret. Because of that, he sometimes feels
threatened by Bong-ki.

Kim Joo-yeup (28 years old /Blue House guard-Yoo
Tae-june) Bong-ki and he entered the Blue House together as
guards. He is a born student and after his training goes right to
the President Guard team. He is a social climber, wanting to be
the best guard, and by nature the exact opposite of Bong-ki. He
is moving up with his precise judgments and will to reason in any
given situation. He has the abilities, looks, and the body but
his one flaw is that he has a very cold heart. He is always in
competition with Bong-ki and Bong-ki in fact is loved by all the
women working in the Blue House. His martial arts skills are
outstanding but when in competition with Bong-ki he is always a
step late and loses to him because of their differences in
fighting style. Bong-ki springs at anything while he calculates
every move. Though it is always him who wins in a competition
with Bong-ki, his anxiety to defeat him swells inside of his
heart. Joo-yeup wants to become Korea’s best bodyguard, but
what is the best bodyguard? He lacks skills in dating, something
he looks like he would be good at. He is the only son of a police
station chief.

Kang Moon-seuk (28 years old /Blue House
guard-Yoon Ji-hoo) Bong-ki’s closest colleague, he gets placed in
the investigations department with Bong-ki after training. He is
a lot like Bong-ki, mischievous and full of humor. He is able to
play a lot of games and other miscellaneous stuff. He is
especially good at singing, even better than some singers. He is
in great shape and his looks aren’t all that bad, in addition to
that his has great dancing skills, which gets him all the
girls…at least until he starts to talk, when all his
charisma comes crashing down. He grew up in the Hwang Young-jo
village in Samcheuk so he has a Kangwon-do dialect. He has great
love and pride for his hometown and he proudly talks about how he
is the second person to really succeed, after Hwang Young-jo,
from his village. He is excited when he meets Bong-soon because
she is from the same town as him and helps her with everything he
can. He acts as a dialect interpreter between Bong-ki and
Bong-soon. He loves Bong-ki, and even though Bong-ki tries
everything to get out of work, in the end he is always the one
that ends up actually doing to work. While Bong-ki judges people
by their looks Moon-seuk thinks that there is no one like him.
His family owns a restaurant in Samcheuk. He is the first son and
is known as a very faithful son.
