Plot[edit]

Lee Jin-soo made it big after writing several thriller novels and establishing himself as a talented novelist. He works for Seo Eun-young, the owner of the biggest publishing company in Korea, and has a long-time friendship with her. Jin-soo has lots of fans, especially female ones, and he seems to be the perfect match for any woman... but what no one knows is that he is actually a bit weird and sarcastic, has lots of strange habits, and holds a dark secret. The one who has to cope with him and his habits is his secretary, Kang Seung-yeon, who begged him for this job to become a pro instead of the below-average girl that she really is. On top of that, there is also the return of Han Ji-won, Eun-young's ex-fiance, whom she despises. Ji-won tries to win Eun-young back, but she has her eyes set on Jin-soo.
