Lee Shin is a university student majoring in modern music. He is also the vocalist and guitarist of the band "The Stupid."

He initially likes Jung Yoon-soo, a dance professor at university, but this all changes when he meets Lee Kyu-won. Lee Kyu-won is a bright and outgoing student who was born into a prestigious family and is majoring in traditional Korean instruments, especially the gayageum. Kyu-won's grandfather, Lee Dong-gun, is one of the top 3 traditional musicians of his age and his biggest wish is to see his granddaughter become a traditional music prodigy. Trying to live up to her grandfather's expectations, Kyu-won immerses herself in training and becomes a university student who knows nothing outside of her studies.
