Yoon Dan Oh (Shin Ye Eun), our protagonist, was the favored youngest daughter of a wealthy family and led a happy life. At least she did up until the day she received a particularly brutal blow from fate. Dan Oh must do every possible thing to help her family as she is no longer able to live the relaxed lifestyle like she did in the past.

Dan Oh and her family, the owners of Ihwawon inn, provide a warm welcome to everyone looking for a place to stay while in Hanyang. Ihwawon Inn is commonly frequented by a considerable number of students as the majority of those travelling to the area are young men who are preparing for the civil servant entrance exam in order to become a ranking official.

Among them are Kang San (Ryeoun), Kim Si Yeol (Kang Hoon), and Jeong Yoo Ha (Jung Gun Joo), who are three extremely different young men who each have their own secret to hide. Dan Oh and the young students come across information while they study for the test that appears to be connected to a bizarre disappearance that occurred thirteen years ago.

Can this odd group of four be able to solve the mystery by pooling their knowledge, or will the unexpected and unanticipated affection towards one another prove to be too much for them to handle?
