Min, a young Korean boy, moves to Japan with his father, who is a potter. One day at a local shrine, Min meets Nanae, a beautiful local girl and aspiring painter. He falls in love at first sight. She is a student at his new school, and their friendship develops despite their cultural and language differences. However, Min's grandmother suddenly falls ill, and Min returns to Korea without having a chance to explain to Nanae. While he is gone, Nanae is forced to move away to protect her and her sister from their mother's violent boyfriend. When Min's grandmother eventually recovers, he returns to Japan only to find that Nanae is gone.
Two years later a friend of Min finds Nanae drawing in a park. Nanae explains the reason she disappeared, and learns that Min returned to Korea because he felt there was no reason to stay. A few months later Nanae and Min stumble upon each other at an art show in Korea. However, Min is still bruised from being left without news and reacts harshly at the reunion.
Later Min learns that before Nanae left, she hid a letter in an amulet pouch and gave the letter to Min's grandmother, asking him to meet her at the first snow at the temple. Min travels there and finds diary entries from Nanae, waiting for him in vain. He decides to leave, but when at the airport notices snowflakes starting to fall. He rushes back, and on a tree finds a paper note hoping that he will return. He turns to find Nanae and they tearfully reunite.
