One day, Mr. Han, a friend of Ok-hee's uncle, comes to stay as a boarder and Ok-hee who had never met her father before becomes quite fond of the man. Eventually, Ok-hee's mother and Mr. Han secretly fall in love with one another and Ok-hee becomes a secret messenger between the two. Mr. Han sends a letter through Ok-hee declaring his love for Ok-hee's mother.
