Due to her unattractive outer appearance, however, she can only sing behind curtains for Ami, a beautiful yet untalented singer. In order to support her fatherâ€™s psychiatric hospital bills, Han-na also works at night as a phone-sex operator. One day, Han-na gets invited to a birthday party for her crush, Sang-jun. She goes to the party thrilled and dressed up, only to be humiliated in front of everyone. Heartbroken, Han-na decides to change for good.
