Lee Byung-hun stars as Lee Dong-seok, a truck driver working on Jeju. He grew up in an orphanage and has a gruff exterior but is good-hearted underneath. Shin Min-a plays Min Seon-a, a woman who came to Jeju from Seoul to open a small cafe. She is prickly and mistrustful of people but has her own warmth deep down.

The show explores different facets of love - young passion, rekindled affection, unrequited crushes, deep friendship leading to more. The idyllic island setting contrasts with the tumultuous relationships.

Another key focus is the characters' relationship with their hometown and origins. Some have returned after years away, harboring regrets and seeking lost connections. Others have stayed put but still feel adrift. Their attachment to Jeju influences their bonds with each other. The show also delves into the island's culture, traditions and famous seafood cuisine.
