Kyu-sik and his good buddy Seon-dal are studying to be priests. Well, actually Kyu-sik is studying and Seon-dal is trying to find reasons not to be a priest. After a night on the town Seon-dal lands them both in trouble, when he bumps into Kyu-sik during mass. He stumbles and breaks a cherished reliquary blessed by the Pope himself.

As a sort of punishment, Kyu-sik and Seon-dal are sent to a small parish in the country, led by the old priest Nam, to work hard, get their heads straight, and prepare for their upcoming ordination. Unbeknownst to Nam, his grand daughter Bong-hee has just returned from USA. Next morning when Kyu-sik is doing his chores, he stumbles across Bong-hee in the church. She’s collapsed from drinking, and when he attempts to help her, she falls on top of him and plants a big kiss on his mouth! In that exact moment, the resident nun walks in on them, and once again Kyu-sik’s gotten himself into trouble. Though Kyu-sik gets off with a warning, Bong-hee has sparked his interest. She’s obviously a lost soul, and must be saved (At this point the most dim-witted viewer will be aware of Kyu-sik’s attraction to Bong-hee, but it’ll take another hour for him to reach that conclusion, so we’ll just sweep that under the rug for now.)

Slowly a dysfunctional love/hate relationship develops between them. And though he gets increasingly frustrated with her disrespect for God - a fact she smirkingly enjoys - he just can’t seem to get her out of his mind. Things take a turn for the worse, when the old priest suggest Kyu-sik try to persuade Bong-hee to get baptised, as part of his education.

The poor priest really has his work cut out for him, but soon Bong-hee begins to look at Kyu-sik in a different light. And he himself begins to question his upcoming vows of celibacy.

To me Kwon Sang Woo and the actress had no good chemistry on screen. I guess the only reason why i kept watching it was bcoz of KSW. I felt like the guy deserved far better than her. he was such a nice guy but there was nothing special about her character. my opinion.
