Summary:
A woman learns a lesson about hope and faith from a man who has little of either to spare in this inspirational drama from South Korea. Yu-jeong teaches at a college, but she finds little satisfaction in her career. After falling into a deep depression and losing her belief in God, Yu-jeong attempts suicide. While Yu-jeong survives, her actions drive a wedge between her and her family, who are committed Christians and believe suicide is a mortal sin. Yu-jeong turns to her aunt, Sister Monica, for guidance; Sister Monica is a nun who does volunteer work at a prison. There Yu-jeong meets Yun-su, a convict sentenced to death who like her has come to question the existence of God. As the two get to know one another, they become friends, and as they learn to bring hope back into their lives, they find themselves re-examining their denial of faith. (Source: Mangaupdates)

My Own Opinion:
It was a long time ago that I read this Manga. I was just searching for some entertainment at that time, I guess. When I first stumbled upon this Manga I dismissed it because the cover didn’t really appeal to me. I searched on and on. And I encountered this Manga over and over again while clicking the “Surprise Me!”-button. I guess after the eight or ninth time I decided I should give it a try as it really did not leave me alone that day. And I’ll have you know that I don’t regret it. I cried at the end. Big crocodile tears. It is after all one of the most tragic and romantic and heart-wrenching stories I’ve read so far. You see it is about this woman who lost faith in life and this convict that killed three people. As they slowly open up to one another they fall in love. She can see the reason in living once again and can finally stand up against the people who suppressed her her entire life and he can finally come to term with the cruel things that happened to him. But everything has a deadline…
