More Than Blue Season 1 Recap
An Yi-Chi and Wang Po-Han, the two leads of the series, both work at E-Shine Records where they are on the lookout for someone to produce a song for their singer A-Lin. As they search through unreleased songs, they find a perfect one, it is a sad ballad created by K and Cream who they contact to get publishing rights. But they learn that one of the creators K has already passed away due to leukemia and Cream is nowhere to be found. During their search Yi-Chi uncovers K’s personal Dairy which they find after getting information from a photographer who knew K, the series then shows the life of K portrayed in the pages.
K’s high school life comes into view, he lived with his terminally ill father and a mother who is absent. On the other hand, Cream is sent to an orphanage after her parents die in a car crash. The two manage to find each other and become a singer and writers duo who make music together. Cream writes songs and K sings them. Both K and Cream consider each other as their other half and live together. However, they are faced with an issue.
K knowing very well of Cream’s fear of being left alone hides the fact that he has been diagnosed with leukemia. He loves her to the extent that he does not want her to be alone after his death and starts to search for a man who can keep her happy after he passes away. When asked by Cream what he wants for her he tells the same, Cream later reviles that she has fallen with a doctor she met and although K is heartbroken, he feels joy for Cream.
Knowing that now Cream is in love with the doctor, K convinces the photographer to change her mind making her break her engagement with the doctor in return for him being a model for her exhibit on the theme of “Death and Desire”. It is revealed however that Cream knew about K’s illness along, but she lied in order to put his mind at ease. She decided to go along with his lie after she found his medication.
The song written by the two is later released with A-Lin who sings it. The lyrics are then revealed to portray the last moment of K’s life.
