This study clarifies what types of metaphors were used in the composition of this drama. It was revealed that a road operated as the main metaphor to express pure love on which love for family and friends intruded. Time and snow acted as metaphors in support of the road metaphor,and in addition pairs of opposites such as light and dark, intuition and morality in love were metaphors expressing opposing traits or opposing lifestyles in two characters. It was further revealed that the fusing of these opposing metaphors made this drama interesting and had a therapeutic effect on the audience.The possibility was discussed that future drama could also employ metaphors of this type.
