A typical poster of a romantic drama but the actually storyline is heartbreaking 

From the day the first couple poster was released, fans had high hopes for a drama with sizzling chemistry and intimate scenes between Jisoo and Jung Hae In. But the ugly truth, that is all just a dream. On the first date, Young Ro is stood up by Soo Ho (Jung Hae In). Six months later when they meet again, even before they can express their feelings to one another, he attacks the women’s dorm, holds Young Ro at gunpoint and threatens to kill her. Their only hug in 9 episodes is only Young Ro’s plan, taking the detonator to threaten Soo Ho.
