LA DOLCE VITA; ep. 13-24

A melodramatic story and mystery. Set around a high-priced luxury apartment
located in the downtown area of Seoul. In this peaceful neighborhood, one
young man committed suicide under uncertain circumstances. Park
Byeong-shik, a retired detective, discovers that the dead man is Lee
Joon-soo, a fugitive he had been pursuing for years before he left the
force. He picks up clues to solve the uncertain cause of his death. The
story begins with events that had happened six months before the man died.
Did Lee Joon-soo really kill himself? He had a lover named Hong Da-ae. And
somehow he was also linked to middle-aged housewife named Yoon Hye-jin. But
what exactly was their relationship? The drama traces events in the past and
present to reveal the intricate web of story arcs.

Woo Lee-kyung worked at a major law firm as a secretary when she fell
head-over-heels in love with Byun-hyuk, a rising star attorney in the firm.
They fell madly in love with each other and ended up living together for
three years. However, one day, Byun-hyuk decided to leave her, and all she
had left were his law schoolbooks. The despaired Lee-kyung studied day and
night with Byun-hyuk's books, and soon passed the bar exam herself.
Lee-kyung ends up opening her own tiny office with no employees. Her first
task is to represent Han Min-kook, who winds up in a huge divorce lawsuit
that could cost him an incredible sum of $100 million dollars. This case
also lands Lee-kyung in a funny, cute tale of romance. Meanwhile, the story
takes an odd twist when it is discovered that Han Min-kook's ex-wife, Lee
Ae-ri, is Lee-kyung's good friend, and the lawyer representing Ae-ri is none
other than Byun-hyuk himself. At the end of the day, Lee-kyung is left with
the challenge of facing a showdown with her friend, Ae-ri, as well as her
first love, Byun-hyuk.

Chest surgery is the most demanding field in medicine, and is the most
difficult and dangerous type of surgery to perform, but is regrettably
shunned by the medical community. NEW HEART is a medical drama that will
depict the lives of chest surgeons as close to reality as possible. Their
tears... Their joy... Their troubles... All of this and more are intertwined
in an engaging, heartwarming story. The courage they display will make you
realize how precious a life is...

pressured to back off, they develop a camaraderie that grows into feelings
of love. Woo-jin gradually becomes a brilliant journalist who no longer
needs any guidance from Tae-seok. But will she ever acheive her goal to
become the new co-anchor of GBS Nightly SPOTLIGHT?
