Dong-joo and Gi-tae were both abandoned by their parents as children. They grew up together in an orphanage and became best friends. After a family tragedy, Ji-soo was transferred to the orphanage where Gi-tae and Dong-joo were. Both boys fell for Ji-soo. One day while in the church, the three of them made a vow: Dong-joo and Gi-tae made a promise to take care of and protect Ji-soo in the absence of the other. While trying to retrieve the ocarina from the river, Dong-joo got caught in the current and was presumed drowned. In fact, Dong-joo was saved and later adopted by a rich, childless couple in Japan. 12 years later, Dong-joo returns to Korea as a Japanese gentleman by the name of Yuichi Yamamoto. His feelings towards Ji-soo start to develop, as his friendship with Gi-tae begins to unravel.
