Ep 1 – The beginning: 'Love', an incredible concept that has existed since the beginning of time. The commonest but the greatest of all sentiments. From now on, we will be talking of this 'love'. In the beginning, the world consists only of earth and sea. The children that were borne of the sea live happily together. Then, those who were stuck by Cupid's arrows from the heavens will fall in love. Cupid's arrow would never pass by and waver to them from their fates. However, the world began to change and 'Love' changes as well. There are some people who don't recognize each other, even though there were stuck by Cupid's arrows. There are some children who are left behind. They can't be together. And in the end, were separated. Let us first examine the unhappy life of a boy, from among those who were separated.

I heard that there's a question you would ask a man you're interested in. [a male reporter to Lee Ma Ri] / She: Oh, that. It's a sort of psychological test. 'If you must go to a jungle, which animal will you bring along? Monkey, Horse, Lion and Sheep. Which of these would you choose?' Monkey represents money. Horse represents looks. Lion represents reputation. Sheep represents Love. It's a test for what a person values most in his life. I like a man who values love, who chooses the sheep. Another question: She: When you're choosing 100 roses, what is the ratio of the reds and the whites? Red roses represent how much you want to be loved. White roses, on the other hand, represent how much you want to love someone. I would choose 99 white roses and 1 red rose. I want to love 99 percent of the time and be the only one in my partner's heart. It means that. / Do you happen to have conditions that the person you like must have? / She: Conditions for the person that I like? I just want a man who can stay by my side as long as he doesn't disappear all of sudden./ Him: It was childish. Using red roses and white roses to divide the nature of love … Using lion, horse, sheep, these animals to judge a person's view of life … Do you really believe in these? … Developing psychological test … Believing in destiny … Those sorts of things … There's only for those who feel insecure and frightened, who don't want to accept the fact there're alone, who console themselves by believing in destiny to relieve their loneliness. Be thinking that way, people don't come to their senses even after losing loved ones and hold on to the belief that destiny will bring someone who will stay by their side.
She: What do you know about me? / He; Nothing. I only know that being you must be tiring. Why don't you take things lightly? How can you meet someone if you take everything so seriously... / She: That's right. That's why they all left. / He: I'm saying … Since you're a star, you must face everything that you have to endure with equanimity?/ She: As a ghostwriter, you should be a preacher. … He: If living your life is this tiring, no one will stay by your side. If you sincerely want to be with someone … / She: It's fine. I don't need sincerity. Since I'm an actress, I can imitate everything, even sincerity. Laughter, Tears, Happiness … I can just imitate them all. Be in love or separation … I can fake everything. Should I prove it? [she's kissing him]
