Dokgo Ma-te (Jang Keun-suk) is a pretty boy. His mother dies without giving him the password to meet his father, who he never knew.

Yoo-ra promises to give him the password if he conquers several women and learns valuable lessons from each of them so as to conquer Na Hong-ran, Yoo-ra’s ex mother-in-law and the Chairman Park Ki-suk’s wife, who is evil and ruthless.
But then Kim Bo-tong (IU), an ordinary girl from a poor background decides to aid Ma-te in pursuing his father’s heels. She has had a huge crush on him since high school and is willing to do anything to help him succeed. Despite himself, Ma-te falls for Bo-tong.
