The truth is sometimes harder to believe than fiction. Han Kyung Seo (Lee Seung Yeon) is an aspiring writer who has a crush on Jang Jae Yong (Kim Young Ho) in college. But Jae Yong is already dating Cha Hye Ran (Kim Yun Joo), who ends up having an abortion to protect her dreams of becoming an actress. Jae Yong breaks up with Hye Ran and eventually marries Kyung Seo. But Jae Yong and Kyung Seo’s life together is fraught with hardships. When there is an accidental homicide, Jae Yong takes the blame for the death and is imprisoned for six years, leaving Kyung Seo in financial difficulty. Through the kindness of PD Lee Dong Joo (Jo Yeon Woo), who gives Kyung Seo an opportunity to work on a TV drama series, Kyung Seo’s life begins to turn around. But what will Hye Ran think of starring in a drama that Kyung Seo writes that seems strangely similar to her own life events? “Scarlet Letter” is a 2010 South Korean drama series directed by Lee Min Soo.
