Plot: Due to a childhood trauma, Seo Jin suffers from multiple-personalities disorder. His main personality has a cold personality while his other personality, Robin, has a sweet and innocent personality. When Seo Jin tries to eliminate the circus from Wonderland due to pragmatic reasons, Ha Na fights to keep it at Wonderland. In the process, she finds herself falling for Robin but worries about Seo Jin. Can such a strange relationship work? Can a woman be in a love triangle with just one man? Jang Ha Na finds herself in that impossible situation.

Zoom into characters: Jang Ha Na (Han Ji Min) works as the master and rope walker in a circus at Wonderland, a large amusement park. She is taking over her father’s work if I am not wrong. She has her troupe to take care of and is responsible for the continuity of the circus. Meanwhile, Goo Seo Jin (Hyun Bin) is a third-generation chaebol and the CEO of this Wonderland. He grows up not trusting anyone. Robin first appears when Seo Jin tried to commit suicide and Ha Na saves him but she falls off the bridge and Robin saves her. When experiencing shock, Seo Jin transforms into Robin, a webtoon artist with a kind personality who everyone except Seo Jin’s father loves. While Seo Jin tries his best to prove himself to his father, he also has to reconcile with his childhood friend who now only has revenge in mind.
