Ever since she decided to say no to her overly time-poor life, Lee Yeo-reum has been trying new things with her inactive lifestyle. Some call her naive for running away from reality, but others consider her a good soul with a heart of gold. None of these matters to her anymore because all she needs at the moment is a little time away from the city hustle. Ahn Dae-beom is a librarian. He's not just a librarian, but a shy one at that. One would wonder how he is even managing a job as a librarian with his deep-seated shyness, but deep inside, he has the other side of his story to tell. Yeo-reum's journey of self-discovery begins in a small town called “Angok” as she steps into Dae-beom's life. Maybe here, with each other by their sides, she and he could finally find themselves in a place of emotional comfort. No one knows, but they will find out at the end of the journey.
Dae-beom and Yeo-reum get closer by the day, and it is not easy for Ji-young to watch them from afar. One day, Dae-beom takes Yeo-reum home after having a great time together, and he runs into writings regarding her sister on the wall of Sunah Billiard. Yeo-reum is worried about him, but that's about all she can do for him. The next day, Dae-beom does not show up at the library.
