A housewife is in a state of ambivalence about her children's education and the craze towards private education. The housewife then falls in love with a neighbor who works as a dentist.
Seo-Rae (Kim Hee-Ae) is married to Sang-Jin (Jang Hyun-Sung), a reporter at a broadcasting company. They have a son named Gyeol who is in the 5th grade of elementary school. Since her son was born, Seo-Rae has focused on helping her son recover from atopy and asthma. She also focuses on her son developing a good character, rather than having constant schooling & tutoring.
One day, Seo-Rae and her family go to her parent-in-law's home to celebrate her niece's admission into the prestigious Chungsim International Middle School. There, her husband and in-laws pushes Seo-Rae to focus more on accelerating her son's schooling. Her husband wants to move to another neighbor famous for its private eduction schools. Seo-Rae is against the move, but relents.
On her first day in the new neighborhood, Seo-Rae spots someone stealing her bicycle, which is parked right outside of a cafe. While she is running after the thief, Tae-Oh (Lee Sung-Jae), who is riding his bicycle, spots the fleeing thief and goes in pursuit. Tae-Oh brings back the bicycle to Seo-Rae and she thanks him.
To prepare her son for entrance into the prestigious Chungsim International Middle School, her son must first take a test to enter a prestigious private educational institute. The results of his test though come out bad. Her son scored lowest among all the applicants.
Seo-Rae tries to meet Ji-Sun (Lee Tae-Ran), the director of the private institute. Ji-Sun is a hard woman to meet, but Seo-Rae finally succeeds. Seo-Rae persuades Ji-Sun to tutor her son.
Meanwhile, Seo-Rae takes her son to see a dentist due to a toothache. At the dentist office, Seo-Rae is surprised to discover that the dentist is Tae-Oh, the man who recovered her stolen bicycle.
