Chang-soo is a naive young man working in a car showroom. Every day he chases his bus and is always late for work. Therefore, the regular passengers on the bus know him well and criticise him for making the whole bus wait. The hurry-burry makes him shabby and dull in the morning itself.

Chang-soo has a crush on A-ra, a beautiful regular passenger on the bus. Every time Chang-soo wishes A-ra to sit near him, she does not care about the people who drool over her.

Since his boss scolds him for appearing ugly, he decides to buy a new suit. Unfortunately, he steps into a shop where he cannot afford any of the suits. The salesgirl in the shop hardly allows him to touch the suits. Listening to the price of the suits, he changes his mind. When he turns around to leave, he accidentally pulls down a figurine dressed in the most expensive suit jacket.

Deprived of other options, he buys the jacket by spending a major fortune of his life. He goes to his workplace with the torn jacket. Seeing the jacket, one of his colleagues stitches it with a red thread, and adding to his dilemma, she does a cute embroidery above the pocket.

The next morning, he wakes up from a nightmare. He saw himself in the dream walking home and at that time a group of people scares him. A man among them asks him for help. While helping him collect the scattered things from the ground, he finds a sparkling bottle of perfume.

After the startling dream, he gets ready for the office and finds the bottle of perfume he saw in the dream in his room. In a hurry, he sprays it on his body and rushes to work. On his way to the bus stop, the women in the street get enchanted by the scent and start following him. Within no time, he becomes a Romeo. Luckily, the fragrance of the scent makes A-ra’s heart race for the first time after many years.

A-ra excitedly shares the new feeling in her heart with her best friend. After the incidents on the street and bus, Chang-soo decides to check the magic of the perfume. He carries it to the rude salesgirl in the men’s suit shop and sprays it on his body. Enchanted by the fragrance, the girls in the shop start to chase him.

A-ra is also there in the shopping complex and sees Chang-soo running from the girls. She rescues him from the girls, and both of them hide in a corner. The spell in the perfume consumes her completely, and she cannot control herself from kissing him. Chang-soo gives a dinner party for his coworkers to celebrate the kiss that he got from his crush.

Unexpectedly, Chang-soo meets A-ra at the restaurant with her friend. Both of them see each other and restrict their friends from introducing them in person. After getting drunk, A-ra leaves for home, and Chang-soo follows her to the bus stop. Seeing Chang-soo sitting next to her, she invites him to sleep together.

The next morning, they woke up next to each other, and an embarrassed A-ra flees from the room. She wonders why she is acting out of her mind. Later in the same morning, they meet on the bus. Chang-soo decides to make his first move by giving her the contact details. After that night, Chang-soo thinks about the future of their love and shares his worries with his friend. He is worried about the reaction of A-ra when she learns about the magic perfume.

A-ra and her friend visit a fortune teller to see if they get along or not, but deep in her heart, she wishes for a romantic relationship with Chang-soo. On the other hand, Chang-soo is expecting a call from her. Finally, putting an end to his wait they start dating.

A-ra’s every movement is watched and assessed by his ex-boyfriend, and the new life of A-ra upsets him.

One day, her ex-boyfriend goes to the car showroom. While test-driving, he enquires Chang-soo about the perfume that he uses. He tells Chang-soo that he invented the perfume and says their love relationship is fake. Chang-soo becomes worried. He throws the perfume into the garbage.

On another day, Chang-soo, A-ra, and their best friends go for camping. While enjoying the precious moments together, he finds another bottle of perfume in his bag. Hiding all his worries, he spends time with A-ra and gifts her a necklace.

A-ra receives a perfume bottle as a gift and thinks that it is sent by Chang-soo. Later, she meets her ex-boyfriend, and he tells her about the perfume. He explains that the person who uses the perfume can make others see the face of their first love in that person. By that time, Chang-soo also reaches there and listens to the magical power of the perfume.

Chang-soo and A-ra realise that they are exploited by A-ra’s ex-boyfriend. A-ra feels humiliated and leaves the place. After dissipating for a couple of days, she meets Chang-soo to learn the truth about their relationship. Chang-soo confesses everything, and the sudden confession breaks her heart. She goes to her ex-boyfriend’s apartment. Chang-soo follows her and reaches there. In front of A-ra’s eyes, her ex-boyfriend sprays the perfume on his body. To her utter surprise, the fragrance hallucinates A-ra, and she sees the face of Chang-soo instead of her ex’s face. She breaks up with Chang-soo.

After a year’s break, Chang-soo boards on the same bus in the hope of meeting A-ra. Finally, without using any magical liquids, they fall in love once again.
