A single career woman in her 40s wonders if there should be more to her life than just work and planning for her retirement.
Kang Min Joo (Kim Hee Ae) is a successful television producer who has only focused on her career and has had no interest in romantic entanglements. But when a series of mishaps happen, she wonders if there should be something more to her life and if she should be living her life differently. When Min Joo keeps running into Go Sang Shik (Ji Jin Hee), who works as an environmental facility section chief at City Hall, the two immediately begin to bicker and can’t stand each other.
Things get complicated when Min Joo moves into a new apartment in the scenic countryside, only to find out that it’s owned by Sang Shik, who also lives there with his immature sister, Go Mi Rae (Kim Seul Gi), daughter, Ye Ji (Lee Soo Min), and Park Joon Woo (Kwak Shi Yang), a close family friend and cafe owner.
Joon Woo becomes smitten with Min Joo and tries to get her out of her comfort zone, while Sang Shik is uncomfortably irritated by Min Joo being pursued by someone else. Will Min Joo realize that there is more to life after the appearance of these two men in her life?
