Our story begins with JinHee and ChangMin running through a crowd from his bodyguards to a church to be married. The priest is speaking: “We cannot see a foot ahead in our lives. There are undexpected blessings. But hardships that come to us unexpectedly can shake out lives to the core. When something unexpected happens, it’s very confusing. If you can’t think of a way through the confusing situation, it’s called a mental breakdown.”
The service is interrupted for an impromptu wedding and ChangMin asks the congregation for their understanding and blessing. He and JinHee vow to love each other until their black hair turns white and seal it with a kiss.
Marriage itself is a miracle. But as two people live together that miracle can disappear into space. Like the priest said, unexpected hardships can cause mental breakdowns. It’s not long before the newlyweds seek counseling.
They keep burdening their doctor with their problems and he tries to send them to a shrink. ChangMin is working at a job he hates because his parents cut off their support and there is no way JinHee can please him. Once he complained about the dog’s dish so she gave the dog away and cried over the dish for days. Every day she sinks deeper into depression.
JinHee pulls out some divorce papers but decides to give their marriage one more try before filing. ChangMin gets trapped into a drinking party on the job, and JinHee gets a call from his mother. The call results in a panic attack. She takes some of the drugs CM wasn’t able to sell and nearly dies.
Frustrated, ChangMin walks home in the rain and finds JinHee passed out on the couch. The curry has boiled down to paste and all the fish in his aquarium are dead. She nearly died so she couldn’t feed them. Why is he so upset over a few fish anyway? He decides to destroy something she cares about.
ChangMin and JinHee fly into a rage and destroy each other’s treasures, while nature responds with a downpour, thunder, and lightning.
Six years later, the ex-couple chance to meet at a wedding where ChangMin is the singer and JinHee is the pianist. They make it through and he tries to leave the reception while she drinks with her friends. But her car is blocking his. Turns out she is wearing the same dress she wore to their wedding. Can’t she afford a new one? She says he shouldn’t go to weddings because he is bad luck. After trading more insults they go on their way.
Turns out that ChangMin’s family are just as arrogant and verbally abusive as he is. It seems that his doctor dad gave up active practice to do research and CM is only and intern. The other family members don’t consider them worthy.
JinHee has to work the next day but she gets so drunk that she passes out and goes into convulsions from alcohol toxicity. She is taken to the Emergency Room at the hospital where she is supposed to start working. Once again JH has a near death experience connected with CM but is saved by Dr Kook.
ChangMin shows up for work with his BFF and Clara walks in. CM offers to get her phone number if BFF will do 3 overnight duties for him. He asks to borrow her phone and calls his friend. Dr Kook is watching and listening. His nickname is “the devil” because he is more like a drill sergeant than a doctor.
In orientation, they learn that Clara is also an intern. The first 3 months, they will be doing dreaded Emergency Room duty and will not be graded as individuals but as a team. The team will pass or fail.
During roll call, JinHee scrambles out of her ER bed and reports for duty, wedding dress and all, saying she got there first. The devil is shocked to learn that the woman whose life he saved last night is in fact one of his interns. But he is not the only one who is shocked. DramaFever
