    • GO Ju-yeon is a self-centered star actress who always gets what she wants: fame, money, and even good-looking young boyfriends. But now that she’s in her 40s and going downhill in her acting career, she wonders whether she should settle down with her secret boyfriend who is 12 years younger than her. But the rookie actor boyfriend is only interested in taking advantage of her fame, cheating behind her back. Discovering the truth, she’s devastated that she has no one who she can truly rely on. So, she decides to have someone definite in her life: her own baby.

      She goes to see an obstetrician only to learn that she has reached menopause. While facing the depressing truth, she comes across a pregnant teenager Dan-ji at the hospital. Ju-yeon offers Dan-ji that she’ll adopt the baby at whatever price and support her until she delivers. Dan-ji who needs the money accepts the offer and agrees to stay hidden at Ju-yeon’s home. When Ju-yeon makes a press announcement of her pregnancy to revenge against her ex-boyfriend who has become a rising star, rumors start to spread on who the father is. But she declares that she’ll be a single mom and her dignified demeanor earns her numerous jobs making her more successful than ever. Dazzled by the new phase in her career, Ju-yeon begins to neglect Dan-ji, but worse, people are now suspicious.
