Set on a university campus, the story follows two art students with different perspectives on love. Park Jae-Eon (Song Kang) seems nice to everyone and tends to flirt with women. However, he has no interest in being in an exclusive romantic relationship—until he met Yoo Na-Bi (Han So-Hee). Similarly, Na-Bi doesn’t believe in love after her first love cheated on her.
