In order to earn money right away, Chang-min gives up his dream of becoming a doctor, and instead becomes a pharmaceutical salesman. He is miserable at his job, while Jin-hee’s inferiority complex deepens as her husband’s family continues to look down on her. They begin to fight constantly and eventually get a divorce. Six years later, Chang-min has gone back to medical school to pursue his dream, while Jin-hee has also put herself through medical school. They end up as interns at the same hospital, where they’ll have to work in the emergency room together for three months.
