A week passes in Seoul, with a diverse group of couples and singles experiencing love or tragedy in strong doses. Broken families and newly formed marriages, struggles with debt or with an uneasy conscience, conflict and resolution, sickness and health, newly discovered love, the resurfacing of old relationships...[3]


A lovely week in the lives of these people.

An elderly woman (Oh Mi-hee) rents a coffee shop from a gruff theater owner (Joo Hyun).

A newlywed couple crushed by debt and desperate for work, the down-on-his-luck salesman (Im Chang-jung) hides the fact that he sells trinkets on the subway from his wife (Seo Young-hee).

A bill collector (Kim Su-ro) who is fed up with his job is then offered a spot on a local reality television show to relive his college basketball days and also fulfill the wish of a terminally ill girl (Kim Yoo-jung).

A tightly wound, divorced father (Chun Ho-jin) works in the music industry. He is struggling to raise his son, and needs to find a maid.

His ex-wife (Uhm Jung-hwa) is a fiery spirited psychiatrist, who has perhaps met her match with a rough-and-tumble cop (Hwang Jung-min).

A famous male pop singer (Jung Kyung-ho) becomes stricken with a mysterious illness after his contract is cancelled by the music executive. He meets a young nun (Yoon Jin-seo) who tried to kill herself due to her strong feelings for him.
