Plot[edit]

A convict named Yang Kang-chil (Jung Woo-sung) serves 16 years in prison for a murder he didn't commit. His innocent nature is protected by his best friend and "guardian angel" Gook-soo (Kim Bum). Prior to his release he experiences a near-death event and only survives thanks to a miracle. Gook-soo explains that Kang-chil will have three near-death miracles and he will only survive them if he learns from the experience.

After his release, Kang-chil becomes a carpenter and falls in love with Jang Ji-na (Han Ji-min) a veterinarian described as a "selfish woman." Despite her selfishness, Ji-na is irrevocably drawn to Kang-chil and falls deeply in love with him. However, things take a turn for the worse when it is revealed that Ji-na's uncle was the victim in Kang-chil's murder case. In order to prove his innocence Kang-chil desperately seeks evidence that will bring the real murderer, Park Chan-gul (Jun-seong Kim), to justice and also save his relationship with Ji-na.
