Page Turner is a 3-episode mini drama featuring three youths and their journeys towards their dreams. 

Yoo-Seul (starring Kim So-Hyun) is a talented pianist and has won various competitions. However, she is unhappy with her life and most of all, her mother who seems to care nothing but her performance. Her mother was a piano instructor before but gave up teaching after being mocked by her student, Jin-Mok (starring Shin Jae Ha) and his family. Jin-Mok and Yoo-Seul attend the same high school and needless to say, they are enemies/rivals. Yoo-Seul's life then took a turn after an automobile accident which led her blind, and she has stopped playing piano since then; turning herself into a bitter and dejected person. 

On the other end, another youth Cha-Sik (starring Ji Soo) is pinning his hopes on setting a new record for pole jumping. His ambition leads to an accident and with his dream dashed, Cha-Sik decided to switch his dreams to playing piano after some encouragement from his mother. Cha-Sik then befriended Yoo-Seul and became her guide in school. Seeing Cha-Sik's enthusiasm in playing piano, Yoo-Seul decided to give him lessons after school. Meanwhile, Jin-Mok's attitude towards Yoo-Seul changed and together with Cha-Sik, they will help Yoo-Seul to rekindle her passion in playing piano again. 

I totally loved this mini drama (wished it was longer!). Though short, the characters and the plot are quite well developed and not to mention inspiring as well. It is also a story of friendship and living your dreams despite the difficult circumstances life might throw in the way. Such stories may sound old to some but that determination/motivation(s) and that passion for something we love will always remain an inspiration.

    I love the story, it sounds very different. I just finished Descendants of the Sun and I'm looking for new dramas to watch. Maybe I'll go for this one next since it's a mini series
