After they graduated from college and went on to work in different fields, they have remained best friends. On February 14, 2012, Yi-Seul gets married to Jin-Won (Lee Hyeon-Jin), a high school baseball coach Baek-Ho played for. During the wedding, Baek-Ho is overcome with regret for never expressing his true feelings to Yi-Seul, even though he has had 20 years. Yi-Seul's mother then asks Baek-Ho to carry Yi-Seul's stuff to Jin-Won's car. While carrying the boxes, Baek-Ho drops a box and discovers a letter. The envelope is addressed to Baek-Ho from Yi-Seul. Baek-Ho slips the envelope into his jacket. After the wedding, Baek-Ho walks over to a nearby playground. Baek-Ho sits on a swing and begins to read the letter. The letter was written after they graduated from middle school. Yi-Seul writes that she felt Baek-Ho was a special person from the first time they met and she has liked him since.

A man (Kim Tae-Hoon) walks over and hands him a handkerchief. The man introduces himself as a "time coordinator". He states that he can control time and space. Baek-Ho, at first, thinks the guy is nuts, but with just a hand gesture the man makes everyone on the playground freeze. Baek-Ho asks the man what he wants from him and the man turns his questions around to ask, "more importantly, what do you want from me?" Baek-Ho tells the man that he wants to go back in time to change his present situation. The next moment, Baek-Ho finds himself in his room with the time conductor. The man gives him a small bottle of liquid and then he disappears. Baek-Ho looks at some old pictures taken with Ye-Seul and notices how sad she looks. He decides that he wants to make her happy. Baek-Ho then drinks the liquid ...
