On a request by Oscar, Joo-Won goes to pick up actress Park Chae-Rin from a shooting set. Joo-Wan mistakes Gil Ra-Im -- a stuntwoman whose body is the object of envy amongst the top actresses -- for Park Chae-Rim and takes Ra-Im to a hotel. Oscar made the request in an attempt to prevent Park Chae-Rin from revealing their relationship to the press. At the hotel, Joo-Wan discovers that the woman he picked is not actress Park Chae-Rim but a stunt woman. During this time, Joo-Wan starts to experiece strong feelings for the feisty stunt woman, even though she isn't his type. Joo-Wan seeks out beautiful woman who comes from wealthy backgrounds so eventually she can support him.
