Yoon-bok is a disciplined scholar from Seongsan Village, a place that strictly abides by the conservative, Confucian values of the Joseon Dynasty and is essentially stuck in time. However, in spite of listening to his elders and respecting their beliefs, Yoon-bok has a rebellious streak and dreams of leaving all of this behind and becoming a webtoon writer. On the other hand, Hong-do is a down-on-her-luck arts teacher who dreams of becoming a designer but presently works menial jobs in a cut-throat design agency with few prospects.

When Yoon-bok, thus, decides to run away from his village and taste the first exciting moments of freedom, he bumps into Hong-do, sparking both of them to reevaluate their lives and aspirations and possibly give birth to something more.

Shin Yoon-bok is the successor of the Shin family of Woorim and is responsible for bringing the treasures of South Korean history back to where they belong. While he raids an underground auction for the same, he fails to catch the thief Phony and loses the artefacts as well. This leads Yoon-bok to arrive at Seoul to capture the thief.

Elsewhere, Kim Hong-do is an aspiring designer who is treated badly at her workplace and often looked down on by others. However, her silver lining is a man at work- Lee Do-young, whom she is dating. However, she soon realises that he is two-timing her with her boss and is devastated.

Meanwhile, Yoon-bok is stunned by the modern civilization that the Seong-sun Village is away from. While he fails to navigate his way through the bling in the city, Yu-na takes things into her own hands and helps investigate Phony. The two then call it a day at Yoon-bok’s friend’s place.

The next day, Hong-do tries to reveal what Do-young did but at the end of the day, he returns her gift to him and tells her that whatever was between them was fake. This breaks Hong-do as she gets drunk and later goes to a supermarket while looking like a mess.

There, she meets Yoon-bok and recognises him as her pupil from years back. He remembers how she took care of him back then when he was being made fun of, and hands flowers to her. Hong-do is happy seeing him and heads to the seats to talk. Right then, she sees her reflection and is shocked into falling only to be caught by Yoon-bok.
