    Ko Eun-Bi (Go Hye Sun) is a medical student, but she dreams of becoming a musical actress. She thinks about musicals all day and even dreams about musicals at night.

    Hong Jae-Hee (Daniel Choi) comes back to South Korea. He used to compose songs for musicals, but now writes pop songs. His friend says that Jae-Hee changed because of his break-up with Bae Kang-Hee (Ok Joo-Hyun) 6 years ago.

    One day, Eun-Bi practices a song while out in a park and Hong Jae-Hee, who fell asleep in the park after drinking too much alcohol, is awaken by her singing. Jae-Hee tells Eun-Bi that he wrote the song "Maria Maria" that she is singing. Eun-Bi doesn't believe him. Jae-Hee advises her that without talent she shouldn't think of becoming a musical actress.

    Eun-Bi, ignoring Jae-Hee's opinion, decides to take time off from medical school to take part in numerous auditions. She fails all of them. With only 2 weeks left before she has to return to medical school Eun-Bi becomes desperate. She spots an audition advertisement looking for a male musical actor. Eun-Bi decides to take part in the audition dressing up as a man. Her ruse is discovered though by Yoo-Jin (Park Gi-Woong), an investor for musicals, and she is kicked out from the audition.

    In the bathroom of the audition, Eun-Bi meets a woman named Sa Bok-Ja (Park Kyeong-Rim). Bok-Ha insists she is a musical instructor and gives lessons to Eun-Bi. Bok-Ja even moves into Eun-Bi's apartment. Eun-Bi then decides to take a year off from school, believing that with lessons from Bok-Ja she cam make her dreams come true.

    A creative musical contest is then held by an investment company led by Yoo-Jin. Meanwhile, a friend of Jae-Hee asks him to write two songs for the contest, but Jae-Hee refuses. Later, Jae-Hee drinks with a bunch of people including Bok-Ja. Bok-Ja has become drunken and grabs Jae-Hee without letting him go. Jae-Hee takes Bok-Ja back to his place and uses her cellphone to call someone. The person that answers is Eun-Bi. A short while later, Eun-Bi arrives at Jae-Hee's place. Jae-Hee learns that Eun-Bi wants to become a musical actress and asks her to sing to a melody while he plays something on the piano. Eun-Bi improvises lyrics about how she met her musical teacher and also a drunken man who insisted he wrote the song Maria Maria. Jae-Hee now remembers her from the park. Eun-Bi also now realizes that the man in the park was really Jae-Hee ...
