As the ghostwriter for star actress Lee Ma-ri’s bestselling travel essay ‘Lovers in Asuka’, Chul-soo gets to meet Lee Ma-ri one day. Around that time, Lee Ma-ri also has a chance meeting with Jung Woo-jin, who happens to have the same name as her first boyfriend. She feels her heart flutter for the first time since her former boyfriend Kang Woo-jin suddenly vanished from her life. Lee Ma-ri finds out that Jung Woo-jin became interested in her after reading her travel essay, which was actually ghostwritten.
