The episode begins in the year 2015, where a very famous hotel in Korea is hiring trainees for their hotel staff. However, it seems that all the candidates are not up to the mark according to the interviewers. But when they see Cheon Sa-rang, they are really surprised because she doesn’t have a degree and also plays the piano. She demonstrates her piano skills by playing air piano for them.

The interviewer then asks her to smile, and she does. The scene cuts to her sad face as she sits with her friends in a club. Her friends consist of Pyeong-hwa, who works as an air hostess, and Da-eul. They dance on the floor and get drunk. The next morning, Sa-rang receives a call from the hotel saying that she has been selected for the internship.

When she goes to the hotel, she is told that she always has to smile in front of customers. Now we are introduced to Gu Won, who is also an intern in his own hotel. However, he doesn’t really like it. One of his co-workers, Sang Sik, tries to help him but later messes up a task. Gu Won stands up to support him, which reveals his true identity.

As he leaves, he asks Sang Sik to give him a permanent job in the hotel, and he becomes his secretary. Later, we come to know that the lady conducting the interview is Gu Won’s sister, Gu Hwa-ran. However, their relationship doesn’t seem good as she tells him to stay in some hotel.

In a rush to make his passport, Sang Sik meets manager Su-mi, who tells him that she will help him with whatever he needs. Later, we discover that the manager has mistaken him for Gu Woo.

In the gym, a guest tries to harass Sa-rang, but she is not able to see his face. While Gu Won is running on the treadmill, she mistakes him for the man who bullies her because they are wearing the same shirt, so she shouts at him. Hwa-ran, who has seen her shouting, realizes that she knows both English and Korean, so she promotes her to the lobby and extends her internship by one year. Gu Won goes back to the US to finish his studies.

Years pass, and Sa-rang becomes very famous at the hotel and secures a permanent job there. Gu Won has finally completed his graduation in London.
