Our Beloved Summer: The Brief
The story begins with the shooting of a documentary, featuring two students attending their daily lecture in high school. The purpose of the documentary was to shoot what is the school life of the best and worst pupils, aged 19.
Choi Ung played by Choi Woo Shik is the worst student while the best is Kook Yeon Soo played by Kim Da-Mi. They undergo different scenarios and different perspectives on running their student life. Further, they plan to live completely differently in the future.
However, the whole process of filming the documentary circumstantially makes them fall in love.
Fast forward 10 years to the future, we see adults, Choi Ung and Yeon Soo, living their planned life, but their lives don’t revolve around each other anymore. They are now each other’s ‘Ex’. However, the documentary that they shot back in high school gains trending status in the present day.
That makes the producer who happens to be a childhood friend of Choi Ung, Kim Ji Ung request them to shoot another documentary featuring their recent lives and where about.
Our Beloved Summer depicts their present time showcasing their differences, their squabbles, their success, their respect for each other, and ultimately their love for each other.
