What is the plot of You Have Done Well?

The largest synopsis for You Have Done Well is more of a character description than a description of the plot;

“Ae Soon is rebellious but gets nervous every time she rebels. She isn’t well off but is always shining and full of positivity. She dreams of becoming a poet, although she is unable to attend school, and she is a bold character who doesn’t hide any emotions.

Gwan Shik is an extremely diligent and quiet character. Romance isn’t a strength for him, however, and he doesn’t know how to act if Ae Soon cries or laughs, but he is a silent warrior who only loves Ae Soon from the very beginning and pours his all into loving her.”

However, we do have a smaller synopsis, with a brief description of the plot;

“Tell the adventurous life stories of Ae Soon and Gwan Shik who were born on Jeju Island in the 1950s.”
