Synopsis

Young Hye-won’s life in a big city isn’t going as planned - no job, no romance, bad grades. Impulsively, she returns to her rural hometown. As seasons pass, Hye-won slowly finds pleasure in living a simple life. A new spring is approaching, and she puts the first step in her brand new life.

Programmer’s Note

Enticing recipes invite your appetite and offer a glimpse into the the slow-paced life Hye-won returns to. The time required to grow seasonal ingredients for home cooked meals in Hye-won’s hometown stand in contrast to the hurried pace of fast food in the big city. Each meal reveals its story, just as each character carries a story of their own
