The Lover is an omnibus series that depicts four different couples living together in one apartment complex.

Room 609: Both in their thirties, Oh Do-si is a voice actor and Ryu Doo-ri is a blogger. They simply chose to live together instead of getting married, and have been sharing an apartment for two years.

Room 610: Jung Young-joon and Choi Ji-nyeo are a couple that's twelve years apart in age. Ji-nyeo has the personality of a penny-pinching ajumma and basically supports her younger boyfriend in the hope that he will someday realize his dream, while Young-joon is an unemployed musician who carries around a guitar he doesn't know how to play. They've been dating for two years, living together for a year, and are quick to fight and make up.

Room 510: Park Hwan-jong and Ha Seol-eun are in their twenties and have just moved in together. Seol-eun wants her boyfriend to believe that she's the perfect embodiment of femininity, and works tirelessly to keep up the illusion.

Room 709: Lee Joon-jae is a loner who prefers to stay at home, but is forced to find a roommate for financial reasons. He doesn't even want to exchange unnecessary small talk so he advertises for a foreigner who can't speak Korean very well. Enter Takuya, a Japanese guy on his travels. Takuya thinks Joon-jae is wasting his youth, and begins to draw him out into the world. Feeling involved.
