Park Shi-on got a job as an intern in a reputed hospital. Being different from others, Park Shi-on had to deal with many difficulties. His personality is unique and straightforward so his seniors did not like him but Cha Yoon-Seo treated him as her younger brother. He used to get minor panic attacks in critical situations and used to tell the patients that his professor Kim Do-Han can treat the patient successfully. By this behavior, many doctors were angry and wanted him to leave but his hard work and sincerity made him permanent in the hospital.

The head of the surgeon gave a patient banned medicine and the condition became serious. Park Shi-on recognized the medicine and other doctors lost respect towards the head. He got angry with him and planned against him. He failed in his plan but whenever Park Shi-on sees the head, he used to respect him a lot. The head was shocked by his behavior but slowly he builds a soft corner and supports and appreciates him.

Slowly, Park Shi-on and Cha Yoon-Seo fell in love but Park Shi-on was hesitating to announce to everyone. He thought that everyone will make fun of her. Cha Yoon-Seo gave him strength and she announced her relationship with Park Shi-on. At first, everyone was shocked but slowly accepted his ability and maturity and was happy for both of them.

The drama nicely portrays how a person can change an evil’s mind with innocence and respect, also that society needs to accept everyone equally.
