One day, the drunk friend of Lee Dam, a university student, falls asleep on top of a costly car whose owner happens to be Woo Yeo.
While Lee Dam struggles to take her friend away and Woo Yeo tries to help her, Woo Yeo’s marble accidentally falls out of his mouth, and Lee Dam unintentionally swallows it.
