Music executive Goo-Joo (Park Ye Jin) left South Korea 3 years ago after the death of vocalist for idol band Mr. Children. She now returns to South Korea. At the airport her suitcase is lost. Goo-Joo's suitcase is mistakenly taken by travel guide assistant Yoo-Jin (Ji Hyun Woo).

Goo-Joo is offered a job by Hee-Moon (Kim Soo Ro) who runs top talent agency Star Music. She turns the offer down and instead seeks out the remaining members of Mr. Children to reform the group. Hyun-Yi, Jio and Ricky all gather together again but they need a lead singer. Goo-Joo decides to hold an open audition to find the next vocalist for Mr. Children.

Meanwhile, Goo-Joo calls her cellphone, which was in her suitcase, and talks with travel guide assistant Yoo-Jin. They make an arrangement so Goo-Joo can pick up her suitcase and phone. In the past, Yoo-Jin trained with a band for talent agency Star Music, but the group was kicked out from Star Music. He now works several part-time jobs and at night plays with an indie band in a bar. One day, the owner of the bar asks the band to take part in the audition held by Goo-Joo.

At the audition Yoo-Jin and Goo-Joo are both surprised to see each other again. Yoo-Jin's band performs, but Goo-Joo asks to hear just Yoo-Jin. He refuses to perform alone and leaves the audition with his band. Later that day Yoo-Jin's band, seeing no hope for their careers, decides to disband.
