STORY: Kaoru (played by Taeyeon) suffers from a rare disease called xeroderma pigmentosum which dries up her skin and contracts her muscles when exposed to strong ultraviolet rays of sunlight, yet she ironically lives on a small beach called 'The Village of the Sun.'

The people of the village enjoy the summers, making a living off tourists who visit to surf during the high season but Kaoru sleeps while everyone lives such a life and instead wakes up at night and sings when everyone is in bed. The sole reason she can bear living a lonely life is because of singing and Koji (played by Koh Joon-shik) whom she has admired for a long time. Kaoru lives each day to the fullest although she cannot see the beautiful sunrise nor check the surfing skills of the man she so loves.
