Because her father is missing, she sets off to look for him, but she needs to find a job to support the family in the meantime.

Things get complicated when “Lang Yuexuan’s” older brother, “Lang Yueming” (朗月明), played by, Hanson Ying (应昊茗), starts falling for “Gu Haitang”. “Lang Yueming” has low self esteem because of his disfigurement.
“Lang Yuexuan” does the unthinkable and allows “Gu Haitang” to think she is marrying him, but on her wedding night, the groom ends up to be “Lang Yueming”. “Gu Haitang” is understandably upset and says to “Lang Yuexuan”, “You guys cheated me into the marriage. My whole life has been ruined by you.” and slaps him.
In order to get out of the marriage, “Gu Haitang” offers a proposal to treat “Lang Yueming’s” disfigured face. “Gu Haitang” successfully recovers “Lang Yueming’s” appearance, but he ends up hating her and tries to get revenge, by taking over the rouge factory and splitting up the two of them. When “Lang Yuexuan” begs “Gu Haitang” for forgiveness, he asks her, “How will you forgive me?”. “Gu Haitang” responds, “There are some mistakes where you need to repent for a lifetime.”, and slowly leaves.
