The drama is a healing romantic comedy that follows the live and love of a star chef Moon Seung Mo (Eric) and a reckless famous fashion designer Yoo Yoo Jin (Go Won Hee) after they meet each other at Seo Ha Village.
Moon Seung Mo (Eric) is a popular star chef who is responsible for creating the fine Korean cuisine dining boom. He loves to cook with organic ingredients while the current culinary environment is filled with food made with MSG and problematic ingredients. After his parent died suddenly from a fire, he decides to move the quaint Seo Ha Village. Meanwhile, Yoo Yoo Jin (Go Won Hee), also known as Yoo Bella, is a renowned fashion designer. She moves to Seo Ha Village after losing her memory from an accident. She becomes acting completely different than her usual glamorous self. Due to her reckless behavior, she earns the nickname “Yoobyeolna” (unique, oddball) among the village locals.
Moon Seung Mo’s peaceful daily life suddenly turns upside down with the sudden appearance of Yoo Yoo Jin at the village.
Yoo Yoo Jin is an eccentric, world-renowned fashion designer who has devoted her life to the world of haute couture. But one day, she is found in a remote village in the South Korean countryside with a bad case of amnesia – unable to remember who she is or how she got there.
The villagers put her up in a house whose occupant is former star chef Moon Seung Mo – a man who has vowed to turn his back on his culinary career after a tragic accident event left him seeking solitude. At first, the ex-chef is resentful of his new houseguest. But when he finds that Yoo Yoo Jin has a seemingly unquenchable desire for food, he starts to rediscover his passion for cooking, life…and perhaps romance!
