The rom-com revolves around Moon Gang-tae ((Kim Soo-hyun). Growing up, Moon Gang-tae always felt secondary to his autistic older brother Sang-tae (Oh Jung-se). He believed his parents only had him to make sure someone could take care of Sang-tae. Sang-tae is a huge fan of Ko Mun-yeong (Seo Yea-ji), a popular children’s book author, and ends up illustrating for her. Famous for her dark stories, Ko Mun-yeong has an anti-social disposition and a penchant for sharp knives.
