    Shi-Jin (Song Joong-Ki) is the captain of the special forces. He catches a motorcycle thief with Sergeant Major Dae-Young (Jin Goo). The thief is injured during his capture and is sent to the hospital. Dae-Young realises his cellphone was stolen by the thief and goes to the hospital to retrieve his cellphone.

    In the emergency room, Shi-Jin meets Dr. Mo-Yeon (Song Hye-Kyo) for the first time. He falls in love with her immediately. Mo-Yeon mistakenly assumes Shi-Jin is part of thief's criminal gang. He proves to her that he is a soldier with the help of army doctor Myeong-Joo (Kim Ji-Won).

    Shi-Jin and Mo-Yeon begin to date, but due to their jobs their dates don't go well. Shi-Jin takes an order to lead his soldiers on a peacekeeping mission to the country of Uruk. Meanwhile, Mo-Yeon becomes upset that she fails to become a professor due to a colleague's privileged background. When Shi-Jin and Mo-Yeon meet again, they talk about their views on life and realise how different they are. Shi-Jin, as a soldier, kills to protect lives and Mo-Yeon, as a doctor, tries to save all lives. They say their goodbyes.

    Eight months later, Mo-Yeon rebuffs the sexual advances of hospital chairman Suk-Won (Tae In-Ho) and as retribution is assigned to lead a medical team in Uruk. There, Shi-Jin and Mo-Yeon meet again. - Asianwiki

    Who is watching it ?

    I'm in love with the drama. It's been a long time since I've watched one like this.

    At first I wasn't sure If I would like it because of the war background.

    But I really like Song Hye Kyo and I don't regret starting.

    I really advise people to watch it. Sure there are love stories but not only, it's not "too sweet".

    Phoenix *~Though she be but little, she is fierce~*

    I refused to watch it during all the hype years ago haha , however after watching Vincenzo with Song Joong Ki, I decided to finally take the plunge.

    It was pretty good, however I didn't feel the magic much maybe because the main leads are no longer together so I couldn't bring myself to fall for their romance on screen. (my fault for delaying). I liked watching the second lead romance developing instead.

    The soundtrack was great anyways, already familiar with it despite not watching.
    The plushies are also in my wish list basket :lol:

    There's also another 'similar' c-drama that I found much better and sweeter than DotS and would also recommend - "You are my hero".
