On another side of the story is Paul, an American author seeking inspiration for a new book after his debut novel being an absolute success but his other books not so much. He moved from San Francisco to Paris 7 years ago, hoping to find some peace and quiet days as he works on his next masterpiece.

The sole woman in Paul’s life is his Korean translator Kyong, who he only sees twice a year, due to the incredible success of his work in South Korea. What Paul could never expect though, was for his visiting friends to set him up with a complete stranger from a dating website.

As much as the love birds try to resist their insurgent feelings for each other, under the excuse of being “just friends”, this is a strategy much easier said than done. They could both need a good friend but destiny and fate seem to have other plans for the two of them.
