Summary: Gong Ah Jung, a level 5 Ministry of Culture official, gets entangled in a web of lies when she mistakenly lies that she’s married to Hyun Ki Joon, a hotel manager from an affluent family. Their relationship is further complicated when Ki Joon’s ex-fiancée and a close friend of his brother’s, Oh Yoon Joo, reappears in his life.
Ki-joon ditches his big dinner meeting to take Ah-jung out to “relieve some stress.” Aww, yeah. Oh wait, he means games and street food. I guess that’s fun too.
(Now, there’s the Kang Ji-hwan I miss seeing onscreen! All boyish energy and charm. It’s like he’s flattened out his natural liveliness for this role, when really he’s at his best being totally off-the-wall.
He buys them ice cream, and shoves hers in her face. Aw man, who totally thought there was gonna be an ice cream kiss here?
Alas, some criminally bad timing is working against them (as is wont to happen in K-dramas), because So-ran sees Yoon-ju’s dour-looking dinner party with Aunt CEO and calls Ah-jung. She’s relieved (for once acting like a friend and not frenemy) when Ah-jung confirms she’s on a date with Ki-joon — just as Yoon-ju’s mother overhears her phone call, and takes the family away, offended.
Ki-joon comes clean about his marriage lie (again) to Chairman Chen, only this time he believes him. Chen walks out of the deal and starts chatting up Great Hotel instead, and this is our Big Conflict for the rest of the hour. Yeah, it’s just as exciting as it sounds.
