Civil Servant Park Min-Jae (Lee Je-Hoon) gets transferred to a new district in Seoul. He is a young man of principle and diligent at his job.
At his new ward office, Park Min-Jae gets inundated with civil complaints by grumpy, elderly resident Na Ok-Boom (Na Moon-Hee). He tries to appease her as best as he can.
Meanwhile, Na Ok-Boom practices English when she’s not working at her tailor shop or filing complaints at the local ward office. When she realizes Park Min-Jae can speak English almost fluently, she asks him to teach her to speak English.
