In the fictional village of Wahlheim, Werther (Super Junior’s Kyuhyun), a young artist of a sensitive and passionate temperament, meets Lotte (Jihye Lee), a beautiful young woman who looks after her siblings following the death of their mother. Werther falls in love with Lotte despite knowing that she is engaged to a man named Albert (Sanghyun Lee), eleven years her senior. Despite the pain it causes him, Werther spends the next few months cultivating a close friendship with them both. His sorrow eventually becomes so unbearable that he is forced to leave the village. Upon returning, he finds that Lotte and Albert are now married. Every day becomes a torturing reminder that Lotte will never be able to requite his love. Werther determines that one member of the love triangle – Charlotte, Albert or Werther himself – must die to resolve the situation.
