Yu-mi falls in love with Myung-gil, college student and church choir conductor. Yu-mi gives birth to a daughter and names her Seo-young, while Myung-gil is drafted to fight in the Vietnam war, where he goes missing. Yu-mi becomes a model after graduating from high school. She becomes a superstar being discovered by Macao Kim. Though her life might seem glamorous on the outside, on the inside, she feels more and more jaded, not having any control over her own life and having to lie to the world that her daughter is her niece.
