Jeong Kyu tells Tae Woong about a girl he admires and promises to introduce him to her. When Tae Woong asks him why Jeong Kyu won’t ask the girl out himself, Jeong Kyu says that he doesn’t have time if he wants to win the award in math for the Nobel Peace Prize; his dad’s dream and his.

Tae Woong meets a little girl being bullied by older girls for her money and saves her. The girl develops a crush on him and gives him her beeper for future contact. She later contacts him and he finds out that she was running away from home, and for a day the two run away together to an amusement park. She gets into a cab to go home but reminds Tae Woong that he never found out her name.

Later on, Tae Woong and Jeong Kyu both enter an international math Olympiad that Jeong Kyu and his father want to win badly. When Tae Woong wins, Jeong Kyu commits suicide.

The following tragic events soon took its toll on the rest of Tae Woong’s life, and forgets about ever set a date to meet the little girl. Then, for 8 years he struggled to carry on with his life.

At 25, Tae Woong is now a third class boxer and in unexpected events, finds Bo Ra (Sung Yu Ri), the little girl he once knew.

The tale continues into the world of the cold-hearted Bo Ra and it is only Tae Woong that could possibly melt her heart. It slowly unfolds many secrets along the way and the past is soon to be made right again. With the help of Tae Woong’s love, Bo Ra learns to find happiness within herself, and in return, Tae Woong comes into terms with his past.

Although this winter will be very cold and scary, winter is not the end of the seasons, but the beginning of the hope for a greater love.

Review

By Chinkyq – The beginning of the Snow Queen was quite different. Though it had its typical korean drama traits, ie. the young lovers and separated love, a different concept was brought into the drama. The powerful love between two friends was quite prominent in this drama and through a short amount of time through understanding this, it was quite enough.

What seemed strange was that the young girl who played Bo Ra seemed rather too young to act against the young Hyun Bin. It was not a secret that the older Bo Ra was infact the young girl who he had met. In my opinion, it was a bit weird. If the purpose was to eliminate potential memory jerkers, they should have used a different Tae Woong too.

The next few episodes were quite fun as it showed viewers were able to see a rich young girl who was so ignorant and inconsiderate, and treated people with disrespect, get an earful from a young man (Tae Woong).

As the drama progressed, however, i found that it had dragged on quite a bit. The personal problems that Tae Woong had was worthy, but not so necessary to jeopardize the whole plot of the story. I felt quite sorry for Tae Woong’s guilt and understood his pain to some extent, but then it was only when everyone knew his past, that i realized why he could not tell Bo Ra his true identity. And in that way, the guilt become somewhat pointless at times for the direction of the drama.

Again, the ending was like any other Korean drama, so it was quite disappointing to have known the ending before i even reached the end. With such a tragic storyline, it’s hard to believe so much sadness could ever reach a father or a genius.

I believe there was too much running in circles and no justification of running back, when having ran away.

This drama did not have a love triangle attached…and it was more realistic in the way other people had liked the characters but not fighting over each other and doing mean things. In a sense i watched this drama because of the extra meaning of the story. Though Hyun Bin and Yu Ri showed great chemistry, it lacked passion and sometimes the scenes were a bit too light. The feeling of love was felt, but not enough passion on Hyun Bin’s part.So in a sense, parts that needed to be developed and emphasisd, weren’t done so, and the parts which were elaborated too much, weren’t made short enough.

On saying that, the snow and the little gifts and the snow queen story memorised me and it made the drama sweet

Rating: 3/5
