The K-drama I Miss You is an authentic mellow drama about love and trust between a man and a woman. The drama shows that bitter wounds from past memories can continue to haunt a person. First love is very difficult to forget and remains in some people’s lives. However, just like any other authentic love story, love will find a way.
