When life throws you curveballs, the way you react to it and live your life defines the person that you are. Lee Young Shin (Gong Hyo Jin) certainly doesn’t have an easy life. She is a single mom raising her 8-year-old daughter, Bom (Seo Shin Ae), while taking care of her senile grandfather (Shin Goo), who is always wandering off. Bom is HIV-positive, but Young Shin makes a game of teaching her to manage her condition without her knowing about it while also keeping it a secret from the small island community of Pureun-do (“Blue Island”). One day, Dr. Min Ki Seo (Jang Hyuk) arrives on the island and seems to take an interest in Bom. Ki Seo is a renowned surgeon who is arrogant and curt with everyone around him. But he is haunted by the fact that his girlfriend, Ji Min (Choi Kang Hee), died on his operating table after he failed to save her. As her dying wish, Ji Min asked Ki Seo to find and make amends to a little girl that she accidentally infected with HIV by giving her a contaminated blood transfusion when Ji Min was a medical intern. When Ki Seo finds Bom on the small island, he is taken aback by Young Shin’s indomitable spirit as she cares for her grandfather and daughter with limited resources but an upbeat attitude. Could the spirited Young Shin teach Ki Seo how to open his own heart in ways he never expected? “Thank You” is a 2007 South Korean drama series directed by Lee Jae Dong.
