Unwilling to let anyone get close enough to detect the truth, Jung Hyun keeps the world at bay as best he can, but there’s something about Tae Young that he just can’t seem to ignore.
Brought together by what can only be described as fate, Tae Young and Jung Hyun can’t deny the inexplicable feelings that seem to arise every time the other is near. Will this pair of opposites give in to their desires or will the fate that brought them together ultimately tear them apart?
