The plot of the show revolves around Dokgo Ma-te, a poor and largely uneducated young man, who is blessed with striking good looks. Having grown up in poverty, Ma-te has big dreams of becoming rich, famous and powerful. He believes that his looks are his best assets and intends to use them to his advantage to achieve his dreams. In his quest for success, Ma-te sets his sights on a wealthy woman named Hong Yoo-ra, whom he believes will provide him with the lifestyle he desires. However, he soon learns that Yoo-ra is not as easy to manipulate as he imagined, and he must find a way to win her heart on his own terms.

The show features a large ensemble cast of characters, each with their own unique personalities and motivations. Along with Ma-te and Yoo-ra, the main cast includes Kim Bo-tong, Ma-te's lifelong friend, who harbors secret feelings for him, and David Choi, a successful magazine editor who becomes Ma-te's mentor and helps him navigate the competitive world of fashion and media.

Over the course of the series, Ma-te faces various challenges and obstacles as he pursues his dreams. He must navigate complex romantic relationships, business rivalries, and personal betrayals as he learns more about himself and the world around him. Along the way, he begins to discover that his good looks are not the only thing that defines him as a person and that true success and happiness come from within.

The show is notable for its lighthearted tone, witty humor, and stylish production values. The vibrant and colorful aesthetic of the show reflects the fashionable and glamorous world that Ma-te seeks to conquer.
