Just when it seems like her chances may have passed, she meets a musician ten years her junior (Kim Bum), and her former fiance (Lee Pil-mo) comes back to rekindle the flame. Korean-English translator Da-jung (Uhm Ji-won) desperately wants to get married within a year. She won't settle for anything less than the perfect man, but will that really result in the perfect marriage? Restaurant consultant Bu-ki (Wang Bit-na) is done with the marriage game.
