High school student Im Ju-kyung, who has a serious inferiority complex about her looks, has been constantly berated by her family and bullied by her peers due to her perceived unattractive appearance.

At the new school, she becomes one of the popular kids and her peers start calling her a “goddess.”
Despite the popularity and the appreciation that’s showered on her, Ju-kyung still considers herself ugly. She lives in constant fear that someone will see her real face and figure out her true identity. Her good-looking classmate Lee Su-ho, who has seen her bare face a couple of times before, recognizes her even beneath layers of makeup. Su-ho is harboring fears and secrets of his own.
