There’s no ‘nobody.’ Everybody is once an important person to somebody.
The Life Story of Beautiful-minded People; ‘The true meaning and hope of life can be learned from ordinary people.’
What makes Love Truly different from other stories is its characters; those who work in the Blue House (Korean presidential residence). This drama introduces the viewers the place considered mysterious and tabooed in TV dramas. It also features the people working inside the most unknown place in the country.
Even though the presidential residence is the main setting of the story, the main characters of the story aren’t the presidential family. The story focuses on the true residents of the Blue House; those who have always been in the very center of the history, but remained nameless for many years. In this story, the viewers will meet the presidential cook, kitchen staff, a carpenter, a photographer, bodyguards and other workers.
These people are working in the most unusual and interesting place in Korea. Nobody recognizes their hard work, but they strongly believe that the food they cook, the door they fix, and a phone call they answer can make a difference. They take their work very seriously and always do their best. The story features the simple, but noble spirit of those who love their job and work hard. Therefore, the Blue House in this story represents the workplace of the hardest working people in the country, rather than the secret and off-limits presidential residence.
Yeo, Bong-soon (Actor: Yoo Jin): 25 years old, cook
She’s a happy, fun-loving, honest and unpredictable person. She loves daydreaming. She’s always thinking about something. She’s such a bookworm. Her little room is filled with stacks of books. She loves eating. She recently realizes that she’s a gifted cook. She used to live with her grandmother in the middle of nowhere. Since she was completely out of touch with the world, she seems like an alien to other people. She runs into problems at every corner in the bustling metropolis of Seoul. She gets carsick all the time. She speaks with a very thick Kang-won (East province of Korea) accent. For most people, it’s almost impossible to understand exactly what she says. However, it’s easy to like her. She’s incredibly diligent. She’s always on the move. She gets up at 4 in the morning as she used to do in her hometown. Her assiduity bothers Bong-ki who is extremely lazy. Soon she realizes that there isn’t much to do in the city at 4 in the morning, so she takes a job delivering milk. Her neighbors have hard time understanding her. For them, her interest in other people’s business seems unnecessary. They aren’t used to getting help that they don’t ask for. However, as time goes by, they start opening their hearts and accept her.
Nam, Bong-ki (Actor: Lee Min-ki): 28 years old, bodyguard
He’s tall and good-looking. His physical appearance seems almost perfect. However, he’s terribly lazy and self-centered. He’s such a player and he looks down on women. He’s the kind of person that people love to hate. He doesn’t want to get involved in other people’s lives. He’s a very individualistic and selfish person. He tries to avoid anything that requires responsibility. He doesn’t have any problem saying no when someone asks for his help. He doesn’t feel bad about anything. He loves shoes and collects them. He often argues with his father who isn’t happy with his being shallow. Appearance means everything to him. He’s very popular with women. He knows many women. He even categorizes them by appearance. According to his classification, Bong-soon belongs to the lowest group. He never wastes his money and time on the ‘unqualified’ women. He once fell in love with a woman. She was his high school sweetheart. However, after his girlfriend of 7 years left him to marry a doctor, he hates all the doctors in the world. He becomes the bodyguard of the president’s son, Jang Jun-won. Ironically, he’s a doctor. Bong-ki can never understand Jun-won. ‘How can a married man fall for another woman? How can any man fall for Bong-soon?’ However, protecting this man is his job. He’s confused; it seems that he’s instead protecting Bong-soon from Jun-won. He follows Jun-won everywhere; the hospital, operation room, rest room and his house.
Jang Jun-won (Actor: Ryoo Jin): 31 years old, the son of the president
He’s always smiling. He’s as handsome as a movie star. He’s very intelligent and kind. The women in the hospital where he’s working all agree that he’s the sexiest doctor in the country. He’s generous, modest and warm-hearted. He’s very popular with his patients. It’s hard to believe that he’s the son of the president. He’s not interested in the way he looks. In truth, he doesn’t have time to worry about such things. His hair is usually messy and his clothes aren’t always clean. Judging by appearance, Bong-ki looks more like the son of an important person. Only a few people know that his father is the president. Without knowing that Jun-won has a bodyguard, people find it strange that Bong-ki is always following Jun-won. He’s been married for five years. He has a five-year-old daughter. His wife has been suffering from Alzheimer’s disease for three years. Jun-won feels helpless about the fact that he can’t do anything to make her better.

He also asks her to make sure that Bong-soon doesn’t find out about it. Bong-soon brings in some porridge for Hyo-won who feels a strange feeling when the First Lady calls her name, but stops from saying anything back.
Meanwhile, Ji-soo, thinking that Hyo-won got hurt because of her, decides to leave to the States with her mother. Jun-won starts crying incessantly when Ji-soo tells him that she wants to leave before she forgets about herself and Hyo-won again.
Bong-soon becomes hysterical when she finds out that Han-sook has received money form the First Lady, but only after she has already used some of the money. Bong-soon gets extremely angry at Han-sook, but after she apologizes for her actions Bong-soon becomes silent.
Meanwhile, Bong-ki finds Jun-won drinking alone at home, suffering from the pain of letting Ji-soo leave. Bong-ki tries to cheer him up and takes him to a karaoke bar and sings at the top of his lungs. Then suddenly he stops and starts to tell Jun-won about his sad past.
Bong-ki hugs Bong-soon and tells her his feelings towards her, but Bong-soon tells him that she is going to act as if she didn’t hear him. As soon as he hears this, his heart breaks. In order to get rid of the awkward silence he pushes her into the water and plays around with her.
Jun-won and Bong-ki are driving along when they find a man who has fainted on the side of the road. They take him to the emergency room and save his life. Watching Jun-won work to save the man’s life, Bong-ki hands Jun-won back his doctor’s gown and tells him to come back where he belongs. Jun-won takes the gown and holds it.
Bong-soon finds out that Bong-ki fell from the stairs and got hurt trying to prevent an article about her and Jun-won from being written. She starts crying after watching Bong-ki go in to have surgery.
Jang-shik meets with journalist Shin and talks to him. Shin tells Jang-shik that he will not write the article on Jun-won, but also that he will not forgive Bong-ki for breaking his laptop.
Meanwhile, Bong-ki wakes up and Bong-soon is happy that she has awakened and takes care of him with great care. Watching the two of them Jun-won gets a strange feeling inside. But he tells Bong-soon not to lose the thing that is most important to her.
Bong-ki acts very coldly towards Bong-soon, so she asks him why he is being so cold to her. He doesn’t answer her and continues to give her the cold shoulder. Bong-soon then feels very hurt by his attitude towards her.
Jun-won tells journalist Shin to stop writing the bad articles on Bong-ki, and if he really wants an exclusive story that he will agree to give him one. Surprised by this, Shin keeps saying things about Bong-soon, which gets Jun-won so mad that he punches Shin.
