This unfortunately comes true when her dashingly handsome, popular and mysterious classmate Lee Su-ho , whom she had previously run into with her bare face a couple of times, recognizes her beyond her makeup.Su-ho is very popular among female students at school, but he hates being the constant center of attention and is often seen as aloof and cold.

    have distanced themselves from each other because of this incident, and the blame Seo-jun placed on Su-ho has caused him a lot of guilt.
