Translated by An Seon Jae
Could you marry a man you've never met? Three Korean women in 1910 make a life-changing journey to Hawaii where they will marry, having seen only a photograph of their intended husbands.
Different fates await each of these women. Hong-ju, who dreams of a marriage of 'natural love', meets a man who looks twenty years older than his photograph; Song-hwa, who wants to escape from her life of ridicule as the granddaughter of a shaman, meets a lazy drunkard. And then there's Willow, whose 26-year-old groom, Taewan, looks just like his image...
Real life doesn't always resemble a picture, but there's no going back. And while things don't turn out quite as they'd hoped, even for Willow, they do find something that makes their journey worthwhile - each other.
