10 years ago, when she was just a child, Ja-yoon escaped from a government facility in the middle of an inexplicable incident. She is in shock and has lost her memory. An old couple takes her in even though she doesn’t know her name or age. She grows up to be a bright high school student and enters a nationally televised talent show to win the top prize and help her struggling family out financially. But the moment she appears on TV, strange people start appearing in her life. A man named “Nobleman” stalks her, and she encounters “Dr Baek” and “Mr Choi” who have been searching for her since her appearance. Ja-yoon’s ordinary life is turned upside down in the blink of an eye.
