Ha-na and Won share a long history that binds them together against any odds.

However, their friendship swiftly turns into something else when Won cancels his dinner date to comfort Ha-na, who was wronged by a charming young intern played by K-pop group INFINITE’s L.

The two end up getting drunk and fall asleep snuggled side-by-side. Triggered by this event, Ha-na and Won begin to imagine what could be if they were more than just friends.
