When a Man Loves is a South Korean television series that aired in 2013. The romantic melodrama focuses on the intricate relationships between a man named Han Tae-sang and two women - Seo Mi-do and Baek Sae-young. Han Tae-sang is a successful business owner who has a cold, ruthless personality. As a child, he was abandoned by his parents and had to fend for himself from a young age. This damaged his ability to form close relationships and left him closed off emotionally. When he meets Seo Mi-do, a cheerful and kind-hearted girl who works multiple jobs to pay off her family's debts, Tae-sang starts to change. He finds himself drawn to Mi-do's warm and giving nature.

The drama centers around the gradually developing romance between Tae-sang and Mi-do, despite their very different backgrounds and personalities. Mi-do sees the good in Tae-sang and slowly melts his cold exterior. Tae-sang is unfamiliar with relationships and struggles to express his growing feelings for Mi-do.

Complicating matters is Baek Sae-young, an entitled heiress who is attracted to Tae-sang and jealous of his interest in Mi-do. Sae-young attempts to sabotage their budding relationship. She comes from a chaebol family and has gotten everything she ever wanted. Sae-young has a manipulative streak and won't let anything get in the way of claiming Tae-sang for herself.

Mi-do and Tae-sang's pure love is contrasted with Sae-young's selfish obsession. The drama explores themes of forgiveness, sacrifice, and finding redemption through love. Can Mi-do's patience and understanding heal the wounds of Tae-sang's past? Will Sae-young's scheming tear them apart?

When a Man Loves packs in the complications and angst inherent to Korean melodramas. The talented cast brings depth and nuance to the complex central characters. Tae-sang's emotional wall cracks and crumbles as he discovers new feelings. Mi-do glows with optimism despite her poor circumstances. Sae-young simmers with entitlement and jealousy.

With beautiful cinematography, poetic dialogue, and a sweeping orchestral soundtrack, When a Man Loves creates an immersive atmosphere. The show took home numerous accolades, including the grand prize at the year-end KBS Drama Awards. Viewers praised the lead actors' passionate performances and absorbing storyline.

When a Man Loves is a must-watch for fans of melodramas and anyone who enjoys an intense, emotionally complex romance. At its heart, the show explores the transformative power of love and the complexity of human relationships.

When a Man Loves is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (20 episodes). The series first aired on April 3, 2013.
