They fit into the family village, where everyone knows everything about everyone. At first, Yoon's arrogance prevents her from fitting in, but with the help of Du Shik, she manages to fit in both the place and the dental clinic.

But eventually an affair develops between them that leads to a wedding. A lovable film with a sense of humor, which introduces us to a different and different culture, even though they use the latest mobiles and also developed dentistry, for example: a lot of implants are made there.
