    Joong-gil is the playboy of his rural school and he has no trouble wooing girls with his charm. Young-sook, the toughest girl in the school, has a crush on Joong-gil but he doesn’t return her affections. When the quiet and pretty So-hee transfers to their school from the city, Joong-gil can’t keep his eye off her and tries to catch hers. Young-sook is jealous of So-hee and steps up her effort to bag Joong-gil in this story of young love.
