Plot edit

A story of Pet (meaning 'Duck' in Thai) (Pratchayanan "Babymind" Suwanmani), a young girl who looks ugly but is very capable. She works as a secretary for Danai (Wasin "Ko" Atsawanaruenat), who is a young playboy and the son of Bodin Phriamit (Suchao Phongwilai), CEO of POSH Inc., a high-end cosmetics company and Ngamkhae Phriamit (Nicole "Nikki" Theriault).

Danai is the new CEO but things are not as they seem, because Danai has competition from the managing director Alisa "Alice" Phalakon (Sonia "Pim" Couling) and the Phalakon family who holds shares of his company, Pet also has problems resulting from Amita "Am" Phuengthanin (Sukhonthawa "Mai" Koetnimit), Danai's previous secretary and Mesa "May" Phalakon (Onnicha "Jenny" Akkharasewaya), Danai's love interest.
