In a dating world fully of busy people who tend to flirt and chase “some” relationships rather than having meaningful connections that allow them to show their true feelings, our main couple has a one-night stand. They meet again three years later, whereupon they kick off a shaky push-pull romance that’ll keep them on their toes as they fall in love.
JinWook and Yumi will meet at a Jeju resort and get caught up in a series of misunderstandings and accidents. But in the morning, she’s gone: “She disappears like the wind like Cinderella, leaving behind one shoe, and after that night, he becomes romantically handicapped, like he’s been caught up in a spell.” Thus he turns from a partying playboy to a workaholic businessman who loses his mojo. He’s irrationally angry with her for leaving without a word, or even telling him her last name, though he tells himself it’s because she’s insulted him.
Three years later, the couple runs into each other again: He’s completely changed, turning into a prickly workaholic corporate director who no longer parties or even enjoys his life, focusing solely on his job. Although thinking of Yumi still angers him, he’s been unable to throw away the shoe she left behind. One day she suddenly turns up as the new nutritionist at the company cafeteria, and although they pretend not to remember each other, as they dance around their physical attraction (and memories of that one night), they begin to wonder if this could turn into anything more, or if it’ll just end up hurting them
