YesAsia Editorial Description

Few dramas boast an original story and themes, but even fewer can rework the same formulas into a far greater classic! Stairway to Heaven is a prototypical Korean Drama, and features the hyper-emotional extremes, iconic tragedy, and tangled romantic melodrama that have all but defined the genre. But what sets Stairway to Heaven apart is that it does these things far better than any of its predecessors!

For as long as they can remember, Han Jung-Suh (Choi Ji-Woo of Winter Sonata) and Cha Song-Joo (Kwon Sang-Woo of Love So Divine and My Tutor Friend) have always been meant for one another. But when Jung-Suh receives a new family, everything changes! Stepmother Tae Mi-Ra cruelly manipulates Jung-Suh, and when envious stepsister Yoo-Ri (Kim Tae-Hee) commits an unspeakable act, Jung-Suh is literally left helpless, and loses her memory!

At the crucial moment, Jung-Suh's lonely and affectionate stepbrother Tae-Hwa (Shin Hyun-Joon of Guns and Talks and Bichunmoo) seizes the opportunity to escape his cruel family - and takes Jung-Suh with him! Song-Joo is left behind, and as the years go by, his heart remains irreparably broken. But one day Song-Joo sees a girl who bears a remarkable resemblance to Jung-Suh, and he becomes convinced that this girl is really his long-lost love. She denies his claim, but Song-Joo's heart cannot be swayed. With the chance for true love right before him, Song-Joo sets out on a personal mission: to recover Jung-Suh, and fulfill their destiny to once-and-for-all be together!

Stairway to Heaven redefines Korean Dramas with a touching plot, vivid characters, a sublime soundtrack, and its own undeniably unique innovations. Many American fans have cited this drama as the single reason they became addicted to Korean Dramas in the first place! In official requests to, Stairway to Heaven was far and away the most-requested drama, garnering over 50% of the vote. The fans have spoken! Stairway to Heaven is finally arriving on DVD with high quality English subtitles, and is packaged in an attractive collector's box with three full-color photo inserts! Discover the heartbreaking drama and touching romance of Stairway to Heaven, and see what everyone's been talking about!

    Love it Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    One of the best Korean drama of all time the music is classic the romance is perfect and the story line is so sad. I'm not gonna describe the storyline but I was torn between the romance between song jo and jung suh and tae hwa and jung suh. This drama is very similar to winter sonata which is also one of my favorite Korean dramas. Anyway this one is really worth picking up and I can confirm this dvd is really nice one of the best Korean dramas I've ever had the subs are pretty nice with only a few mistakes mostly just when they say oppa. It also comes wit picture 's of the characters and the dvd set has pictures of the scenes from the drama. Overall really nice set and I would totally recommend this set.

    This DVD set has only 352¤480 in resolution. It should've been in 720¤480. It looks noticable worse because of that. There's no excuse for this mistake. If you want better picture quality look for another release.

    Classic drama to see again & again... Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    This is a drama I take parts out to watch again and again...especially when I hear the OST with Kim Bum Soo singing the main song.

    I had purchased the dvd when they were originally sold for $99.95 & now the price is where most people can afford to own & definitely should.

    If you are Choi Ji Woo & Kwan Sang Woo fan, than you will not be disappointed. The drama is mostly on the sad side so prepare to take some tissues for those heartfelt tears. There are some cute & funny scenes between CJW & KSW so there are some lighter moments.

    Kim Tae Hee's role is hard to watch because she plays such mean step sister. So often in Korean dramas, the mean roles are played by the attractive actors and actresses. I suppose that is so the audience can tolerate their terrible behaviors by being exteriorly nice to look at.

    The acting by all were very convincing. One would think to believe that CJW & KSW are true couple in life but as he is married to Son Tae Young...and CJW with her boyfriend from Air City drama, Lee Jin Wook (who currently is serving his military duties) is all a fairy tale love of good acting and well written story.

    I will keep this drama in my ever growing collection of Korean dramas to resurface & to remind myself that there are true love in life.

    Still one of the best... Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    No matter what other Korean dramas I currently watch, I still remember this drama. I often listen to the OST for this series and I can picture the scenes of Kwan Sang Woo and Choi Ji Woo. Together they were so good in this...loved the chemistry between the two. Watching this, one would think that they should have gotten married to eachother rather than him marrying Son Tae Young (lovely girl)...guess that is called wonderful acting.

    It is extremely sad but beautiful story. It makes you cry so be prepared to let it all out.

    This is a classic now, it is one of the best K-dramas. Get the OST if you can, the music fits beautifully to the drama.

    One of the Best Korean Drama Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    I bought the DVD (English version)early this month and I'm impressed with YesAsia for a fast delivery. I was doubtful about the quality of the DVD since I bought DVDs from other sites, but I have to say the DVD I got was in good quality with a nice box. The English subtitle is quite impressive since the other ones I bought I could barely understand the english sub. I heard that this is a good drama, but I couldn't buy it yet since I find it to be expensive. I'm so glad the Stairways to Heaven is on sale.

    Now regarding the drama, it's a plus when you already have a crush on Kwon Sang Woo since I first saw him in Sad Love Story then add a good drama story line then what you have here is a hit Korean drama story for me. Kwon Sang Woo never fails to impress me. I felt his pain. He is really one of the great actor I admire in my list of Korean actors. All the actors and actresses here were all good. Even though, I find this drama to be in correlation with Cinderella there were still a different twist in every episodes. It's hard to predict the ending of the story because of all the different twist in the story line along the way. I find Choi Ji Woo to be a great actress and beautiful. I'm currently watching her in Celebrity Lover/Sweetheart here in the US. Basically I got hook in Korean Drama when I watched the Sad Love Story. I would recommend both dramas to everyone. If you want a good comedy drama, I would recommend My Lovely Samsoon.
