What is the story about?
The story revolves around the recently divorced woman Jin Ruiha and Hankook University Min Jihou’s statistics major. Xu Ha is tired of her husband’s attention to her. She divorced and founded a well-run business. She runs a cafe in a building owned by her family. Her friends said she was lucky because of these things and her single again at just the right age. She met Zhihou while looking for part-time staff for her cafe. Zhihou walked in as a customer, but looking at a “part-time job” poster, he asked and accepted an interview. He was polite and willing to learn, and she asked him to join from the next day.
From the beginning, when Xu Ha accepted his interview, she was thinking about things she shouldn’t do. But at his welcome and the ex-employee’s farewell party, things got out of hand and the couple kissed. Because of the way her husband treats her, it is not easy for Xu Ha to overcome past relationships so easily. Let her become vulnerable, quit her job and stay in the suburbs as a family wife, doing nothing. Her feelings for her ex-husband always disturbed her. After talking about things and drawing the boundaries, the two began a secret relationship based solely on physical aspects, ensuring that the boundaries between personal and work lives remain strong.
But it was not easy, because someone from her past would look back for her. Her ex-husband Park Yanyu came back to want to make up. People come and go, and the relationship between Xu Ha and Zhihou becomes noisy. But they survived. In the end, fall in love. But it turns out that the cafe is not the place where they met for the first time, everything has to be traced back to the high school era.
Authors and fans
Although fans like web comics and are very excited about the adaptation of the TV series, many fans still criticized the character. Later, I took the time to solve the doubts by myself. Zhihou is liked by fans and Yanyu is hated. The author says that this view is his original intention. Some fans think Xu Ha is not pretty, calling her average. In response, the author replied that he wanted to show her her natural essence. After clearing some hatred of Yanyu, he said that this person was misunderstood. He must change so that he can catch up with the path life takes him.
