Young Eun is beautiful, stylish, and intellectual, and she is good at what she does. However, things are a little different when it comes to relationships. Young Eun is a pragmatist to a fault, and she comes to appear as cold-hearted since she values stability above everything else.
Young Eun has never been troubled by the idea that some may perceive her as chilly because she is content in both her profession and her life. Things take an unexpected turn when she meets Yoon Jae Kook, a well-known freelance fashion photographer.
Jae Kook is the epitome of a perfect man: affluent, gorgeous, and clever, but that isn’t what draws Young Eun’s interest. Young Eun can’t seem to ignore the fact that there’s more to Jae Kook than meets the eye.
He and Jae Kook in the K-Drama find themselves falling for each other as if in a dream. However, not every fairy tale has a happy conclusion. Is their narrative doomed to end in heartbreak, or will they, in the end; find their own version of happily ever after?
