He is a photographer with outstanding appearance and skills. He has scars from his parents’ divorce and is deep, cold, selfish, and arrogant. He stays as friends with Woo Yeon for a long time and draws a clear line when she confesses her love. Only when she left to put an end to her long unrequited love does he realize his true feelings. However, now there is another man in the picture.

Later, Joon Soo, the head of a publishing company, steps into her life like prince charming, but at the same time, Lee Soo appears again as her partner.

He seems just too good to be true: academic background, appearance, wealth, character, everything. But he has a painful history of losing his first love to his brother. From a year ago, when he changed his number, a strange woman started calling and poured out her drunk rants, thinking that he is her ex-boyfriend, but strangely enough, he can understand what she’s saying. And like fate, he meets the woman by chance and gets a chance to work with her. Not to make the same mistake, he approaches her straight, but suddenly Lee Soo walks into the picture.

She is pessimistic, skeptical, and realistic. Her boyfriend Hyun Jae, who she has been dating for 10 years, wants to get married, but for her, who needs to take care of her single mother and high school brother, marriage is just burdensome.

She’s smart, comes from a good family, and has a good character. But for some reason, she can’t find the right guy. When the anxiety of becoming a NBSB (no boyfriend since birth) reaches its peak, Sang Hyuk, who can’t date like herself, begins to look like the “right man.”

He worked part-time jobs when others went to college, and with that money, he started his own food truck business. After saving enough money, he took over a pub that went out of business. He has never dated in his life, but going on a date has never been his interest. Of all his friends, he has a special affection for Jin Joo.
