In the same area, a young man walked very confidently to his class. They’re going to the civil servant test preparation class. Their first encounter was not really an encounter: the woman tripped her step at the front door caused the man tripped on her and spilled his coffee to another person, but before the man could call her the woman had fled. These two people run very different lives in comparison to each other.

The woman had to work several types of jobs while studying: parking gate girl, kendo teacher, and shopkeeper. Her life is the typical life of most of us. Meanwhile the man, he’s the typical of rich boy who thinks the world is in his hand. Besides studying, he also practices his skill with gun. In his spare time, he does free car racing.

His father persuaded him to just start working with him taking care of his business, but Gil Ro refused. He has another ambition. He’s a big fan of 007 agent and seems to have a dream to be a national agent like his idol.

Seo Won’s family is another reverse of Gil Ro’s. She’s from a common family, with a nagging father who just currenly caught in an accident. Seo Won’s came home to see her father in gips and they ended up arguing to each other, while she worried about her poor mother who seems to be unable to take care of herself.

Gil Ro did go for the meeting with 5 girls. But he managed to piss off every single of them for acting as an indifferent character. He almost lost his credit card, but his mother gave it back to him again. He refused to go to arranged meeting again, but his mother managed to make him go again.

The girl he’s meeting this time was Kim Seo Won! “Your fashion is such a post-mo” comment Gil Ro when he first saw Seo Won. the reason why Seo Won agreed to take her friend’s suggestion to go to this kind of meeting was of course the money. Gil Ro was acting like usual. After saying hi, he just started to be indifferent and was drown into his ipad and earphone. But this woman was different. Instead of being angry, she also took the time for studying. She set up the book, pencil case and set the timer into 2 hours.


For the first time in Gil Ro’s arranged meeting with girls, he was the one who’s being ignored. Seo Won was too focus on her study and it somehow attracted Gil Ro. He asked what she’s studying. Seo Won just studying for a test. When Gil Ro asked what kind of test, the two hours time has finished and Seo Won just about to take off. Surprisingly, it was Gil Ro who offered to meet again. They agreed to meet again the next day.

The second meeting of Seo Won and Gil Ro started with study together. But then Gil Ro asked why Se Won came to this meeting at the first place. He right guessed her: “it’s because of money, right?” Gil Ro said that if she’s after him because of his father’s money and he said that women like her were those he dislike most. Seo Won wasn’t offended by Gil Ro’s words, and she just said that did it because of her friend and she wanted to give a good service to the agent and through it she got the money.

I didn’t think much to decide to make summary for this drama. Besides i’m JooWon(‘s face) big fan, I also love Choi Kang Hee’s acting. This first episode was okay, frankly speaking. I still can’t talk much from the story point of view. But from the character, I see Joo Won’s character here is quite so so…I mean, in comparison with his previous phenomenal work in Gaksital. Choi Kang Hee’s character is more interesting for me. Let’s just wait for more clue in the next episode ;)
