Storyline of the Korean drama Love Story in Harvard
This love story evolves at Harvard University and is focused on two students studying at Harvard Law School and Harvard Medical School. Kim Hyun Woo is the law student played by Kim Rae Won, while Lee Soo In is the medical student played by Kim Tae Hee. An interesting fact about this television show is that the students are shown to be Harvard alumni but the program was filmed at the University of California and the University of Southern California in the city of Los Angeles California.
Basically it portrays three students and their lives at Harvard University. Too often we see a love story developed out of circumstances. This also seems to be just the case as these three South Korean are far away from their homeland and need to rely on each other for a sense of traditional and cultural familiarity. This leads to a love triangle developing between them where two of the male students in the law school Kim Hyun Woo and Hong Jung Min both are rivals in the classroom as well as for the affections of the medical student Lee Soo In.
The hard-working Jung Min is very dedicated as a student and soon becomes one of the favorites of the law school professor John H. Keynes. The role of the very stern law school professor is played by Frank Gorshin, who actually played the role of the Riddler during the 1960s in the Batman television drama. He is also an Emmy Award nominated actor. Woo struggles to cope with the workload and in the flight by the professor. However, he eventually works very hard and gains the respect of both his peers as well as his teachers. Eventually, he also falls in love with the young girl along with his rival and this sets the tone for the rest of the TV program where they constantly battle to keep at the top of the class as well as win the love of their life.
