Song Geurim is a radio program writer who isn't exactly talented in writing. She's got the passion, initiative, and drive, but due to her lack of writing skills, she still remains an assistant writer. When she was young, the radio was the only thing in the world that she could share with her blind mother. She was consoled by the sounds of the radio and loved it more than anything, so she became a writer. When her radio program is on the verge of cancellation, she succeeds in casting top actor Ji Suho, who can't do anything without a script.


Ji Suho (cast. Yoon Dujun)

The youngest-ever winner of the Best Actor Award at the Cannes Film Festival started out as a child actor 15 years ago, and now he is a beloved top star. However, he is actually a two-faced man who wears a mask all the time. It's a mask that fakes confidence and composure—traits admired by many. At a terribly young age, he realized that a product is worthless if it can't be sold, so he's been pretending for all his life to make himself marketable. Everything needs to be perfectly staged and scripted. He suffers from chronic depression out of the fear that his real self might be exposed to the public. But one day, he meets a woman—a radio program writer who follows him everywhere in order to cast him as the DJ. He is under threat of being unmasked.

Song Geurim (Cast. Kim So Hyun)

When she was 14, her beloved mother was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa, a disorder that causes loss of vision. Instead of watching TV, she turned on the radio because she wanted to share the world with her blind mother. The radio was a consoling friend to her. Now, she is a radio program writer of her dreams. Unfortunately, she isn't exactly talented in writing. But her amazing talent in casting has helped her survive in this industry for the past four years as an assistant writer. No one can stop her passion, initiative, and drive; perseverance and optimism are her trademarks. When her radio program is on the verge of cancellation, she is given the mission of casting the top star Ji Suho as the DJ.

Lee Kang (cast. Yoon Bak)

The competent yet cranky PD is notorious for his nit-picking. With endless idea meetings, all-nighters and meddling, he caused 7 assistant directors to end up being hospitalized. He has a legendary record of firing 12 radio DJs. Thanks to his perfectionism, every program on which he lays his hands achieves no.1 in listener ratings, but no staff wants to work with him. Then he causes an accident while the radio is on air, after which he leaves to India to practice asceticism. When he comes back, he's a different man. His benevolent smile shocks everyone who used to know him. For his new program, he picks Song Geurim and Ji Suho as the main writer and DJ. He seems like an intelligent, pleasant and easygoing guy... until the program is ready to air.

Jin Taeri (cast. Yura)

For 20 years, the actress has been through hell and high water. She climbed mountains for historical dramas, came back from death's door while filming underwater, and hung from wires countless times. But all that happened before she turned 20. The once most sought-after actress is now only active on social networking service, where nobody pays attention to her. When it seems that her life as an actress is over, she learns the secret of top star Ji Suho's family by chance. Then she takes the last gamble of her life. Only if she could be on the front pages of the tabloids as Ji Suho's lover and seize the spotlight... She could rise to the top again.
