Leon, a young Korean shoe repairer who devotes himself to a monotonous daily routine, doesn’t realize that his co­worker Kokaze has feelings for him. Instead, he falls for a mysterious girl he finds sleeping on a park bench, which leads to an entertaining and heartwarming tale, convincingly played out by various K­pop idols and young stars of the Korean­Japanese community.
