I think there are no VCDs or DVDs of this drama with English subtitles ... I only found versions with Chinese Subtitles in YesAsia.com ... I also have the version with only Chinese subtitles, its a pity that I can't share this drama with my friends who don't understand the subtitles :( ... so i started some subbing of the show but still have not completed Episode 1 because Green Rose came in to my favourites and took away all my attention :P . However, I'll try to do the subbings if I have the time.

I actually even have the Korean Novel of this show that was one of the Best-Sellers in Korea, but I don't know why this drama is not much promoted - its actually very well filmed and acted. The OST is also quite good - maybe it wasn't popular because the stars are not that known, but in my opinion it was a very good show.

I would really like to share this drama with more people but I don't know the technical sides and ways to upload the drama file ... maybe, can someone who own Clubbox help me out with this ... please! Thanx a million!! :D

Guest Happy_Day

I remember watching the first two episodes of this drama. I was really excited because the drama is based on a famous Korean novel, and AhnJaeMo was really popular at the time. I believe it was a big failure in Korea though. I thought it was reallllly boring, and the acting was bad. I stopped watching it.

The one thing I liked was the main song. It starts out like, "DAHN DAHN DAHN.. DAHHN!!!!"

Teacher 1: Why did you meet Cho Duk Jae again? You have nothing better to do? The university examination is around the corner. No … but you are … maybe you joined him again is it?

Kwon Hyuk Soo: No.

Teacher 1: No … but why are you not in school but spending your time with them? What is the reason? You can’t say it out here?

Another teacher comes by with a cane and points it at Kwon Hyuk Soo.

Teacher 2: Are you Third Year Senior student? Ask you to study you refuse to study. You bring along a girl student to learn bad things? Rascal … I am really confused and disappointed. I thought that you are a very good student … but if you said that you date because the weather is good. But it seems like they came to fight. Here … because the both of you are still studying I will let you go. Is this the way the both of you spend your time?

Kwon Hyuk Soo and Shin Eun Hae stares at each other. Suddenly, Shin Eun Hae walks forward to Teacher 2.

Shin Eun Hae stops and looks straight into the eyes of Kwon Hyuk Soo with a smile.

Shin Eun Hae: ALIBI (in English)

Kwon Hyuk Soo: What?

Shin Eun Hae: You don’t know what is ALIBI?

Park Sang Soo : Hey … how can it be because of you? That fellow is terribly bad. It’s because he hit you first … was the situation like this when you fought with him?

Kwon Hyuk Soo stares back at Park Sang Soo. Park Sang Soo continues with his boxing.

Park Sang Soo : Come on.

Kwon Hyuk Soo Friend 2: If you didn’t argue with the teacher then nothing will go wrong. Feel like cutting that teacher with a knife … anyway, the school does not want you to be expelled.

Kwon Hyuk Soo Friend 3: True … because of that sort of teacher lots of our hair are falling. Said that you don’t need to wash the toilet.

Kwon Hyuk Soo : Oh … that’s because the ALIBI is strong.

Kwon Hyuk Soo Friend 1: Is that girl pretty?

Kwon Hyuk Soo: Ah … just normal.

Park Sang Soo: Hey … you don’t find the girl pretty?

A school girl by the name of Mi Sun who is an admirer of Kwon Hyuk Soo enters the gym.

Kwon Hyuk Soo’s father looks at him.

Kwon Hyuk Soo Father: What do you intend to say?

Kwon Hyuk Soo: I agree without any condition (smiling).

Kwon Hyuk Soo Father: What?

Kwon Hyuk Soo: You have good taste! Don’t be so shy about it. Just marry again without any regrets and worries. Why do the both of you meet each other in such a shy manner. Even if other people see it …

Kwon Hyuk Soo Father: What are you talking about?

Kwon Hyuk Soo: No … you mean it’s not like that?

Mi Sun: Elder brother Hyuk Soo … elder brother …

Kwon Hyuk Soo pushes Shin Eun Hae to a corner while holding her arms.

Kwon Hyuk Soo: She likes me … and the extreme type.

Shin Eun Hae laughs.

Kwon Hyuk Soo: Haven’t I told you before. If you listened when I told you this wouldn’t have happened. Anyhow … you aren’t that weak either. You were very fierce. Hey … your clothes at the back have already torn.

Kwon Hyuk Soo and Shin Eun Hae at the garden. Kwon Hyuk Soo helps Shin Eun Hae mend back her torn sleeve.

Kwon Hyuk Soo: Even your flesh is coming out. You should go on a diet. You’re not bothered about it now (asking cheekily)? Because getting strangled while mending the clothes is a very funny way of dying. Ah … can’t do it anymore. Its better you take a deep breath.

Shin Eun Hae burst out in laughs.

Kwon Hyuk Soo: Hey … stop laughing … it’s tearing again. Stop moving.

Shin Eun Hae: At that time, why didn’t you defend and attack back when you were beaten up? You don’t know how to fight?

Kwon Hyuk Soo: Because I’m too good at fighting … I almost got expelled. It’s a thing of the past.

Shin Eun Hae: That is …

Kwon Hyuk Soo: My father knelt and cried at the office to beg the teacher not to expel me … that’s why I swear not to use my fist anymore.

Shin Eun Hae: So now … you’re a role model student?

Kwon Hyuk Soo: Yup.

Shin Eun Hae: Good father and good son.

Kwon Hyuk Soo: No … but, when you talking like this don’t you use any words of respect? I’m a senior third year student.

Shin Eun Hae takes her bag and walks away.

Kwon Hyuk Soo: Why not you try telling me what is the meaning of ALIBI? What did you do that day?

Shin Eun Hae: Who did I do it for?

Kwon Hyuk Soo: What?

Hmmm ... about the ending, it is both sad and happy depending on how you look at it ... Highlight to read the SPOILERS !!! :D


Kwon Hyuk Soo finally had a better life and Shin Eun Hae manage to release herself from all the sufferrings. They truly loved each other until the end.

All the bad vilan characters died. Kwon Hyuk Soo and Shin Eun Hae finally had peace.


Shin Eun Hae accidently killed her husband Jung Chul Min in defense because she was brutally and ill treated by him. Kwon Huk Soo comes to the crime scene shortly after the incident. There were only two of them at the crime scene, Kwon Hyuk Soo then negotiated with Shin Eun Hae that he will protect her and he would admit the crime and go to jail for her. Kwon Hyuk Soo by gangster means manage to escape from being caught by the police while Shin Eun Hae stays under the protection of Hak Keum. Shin Eun Hae felt anxious and worried about Kwon Huk Soo that suffer so much for her. She wanted to meet him so much when police were hunting for him. The police finally found him. Shim Eun Hae finally get to see Kwon Hyuk Soo from a far while he was handcuffed and pulled to the police car. She ran across the road towards Kwon Hyuk Soo direction without looking at the traffic and she was hit by a lorry right before Kwon Hyuk Soo. She died tragically. No matter what, Kwon Hyuk Soo was arrested for the murder case and still persistantly admitted that he was the killer because he didn't want Shin Eun Hae to bare the crime. At the end, Hak Keum became Kwon Hyuk Soo's witness and alibi and he was announced not guilty. The last part shows Kwon Hyuk Soo going to the sea side where he ate the cake with Shin Eun Hae in the first episode. He met a girl dressed in white ... she was Shin Eun Hae. He gave her the necklace that he bought for her earlier but she don't seem to remember anything and walked away with a smile. At the end, it was only his imagination of Shin Eun Hae and he set alone by the sea side.

The story in the TV series is a little bit different from the version in the book. The TV version is dramatic and tragic however the version in the book has a different ending that is less tragic ... however, the characters who died seem to be different in both versions.

The books are in Korean but i think there is a Chinese version ... however i bought the Korean version to learn the language and the dialogues ... although im still a beginner in learning the Korean language but i really enjoy the language used in the book ... a bit of the poetic type and touching.
