Meanwhile, the female lead in the drama is named Oh Eul-soon (played by Song Ji-hyo) who constantly has bad luck. The female main character is working as a drama series screenwriter, even though she has to struggle with her own life but she actually has optimistic energy to keep going and survive.

Another supporting female character in this drama is Shin Yuna (played by Ham Eun-jung). Although she looks pretty and charming, Shin Yuna, who’s also Philip’s lover, has a jealousy issue that she hides behind her humble appearance and acts like she is the antagonist of the drama.

Ki Eun-yeong is Eul-soon’s old friend but at the end, she gets increasingly jealous and hateful towards her that they actually become rival in their career.
Yoo Philip and Eul-soon’s relationship has to come a long way before the two realize that they actually have mutual feelings for each other.
On September 4th, 2018, KBS2TV released the sweet moments between Yoo Philip and Eul-soon as the couple became more romantic enjoying their special relationship.
In the scene below, we can see Yoo Philip typing vigorously, making viewers curious about the content of his writing. We can also see Eul-soon accompanying him and thus demonstrating the affection between them and the increasing intimacy they develop each day.
Continuing from the previous episode, Yoo Philip wakes up after Eul-soon’s sacrifice for him and they realize that their feelings have grown deeper even though they have to face many horrible and mysterious things together.
In Episodes 19 and 20, that were aired on September 11th, 2018, KBS2TV revealed the cut off scenes from the couple having romantic moments together. The scenes are a continuation of the previous episode where Yoo Philip had succeeded in kissing Eul-soon.
The day after Eul-soon throws away the necklace with the lucky apple tree pendant, their first date goes through an unfortunate series of events, such as stepping on dog poo and also starving all day.
Luckily, the bad luck on their first date doesn’t last for too long as Yoo Philip and Eul-soon end their date having fun simply sitting together on the couch watching TV at Yoo Philip’s house. The couple is able to showcase their lovely moments together despite the unlucky events that they have to go through.
Eul-soon starts feeling hopeless since bad luck is always following her everywhere, but Yoo Philip helps her gain back her luck by buying a new necklace for her. Previously, Eul-soon had given up on the fortunes and threw away the lucky apple tree necklace in the sea.
The most awaited scene was the one that was aired on September 18th, 2018, where the couple is fighting with each other inside an elevator.

“Park Shi-hoo is actually a scaredy-cat person in real life.” – Song Ji-hyo
“Apart from her beautiful appearance, she also had a warm heart. She likes to take care of everyone around her and really is an easy going person. When we first met, I thought that she’s very cold since she didn’t talk much but after meeting often and having drinks together, I felt that she’s well-considered with anything surrounding her.” – Park Shi-hoo
“When I first met him, it wasn’t easy since he is a chic person but I thought this man is a very good looking one. After meeting him for a few times and having a talk with him, I found that he has a great personality aside from his appearance. He has a warm heart but is clumsy as well.” – Song Ji-hyo
