    Synopsis Having deciding early on to become a civil servant, Jin-soo fails the civil service exam four times before finally succeeding on his fifth try. Although his friends privately think that he could have done better for himself than to work as a civil servant, Jin-soo is satisfied with his life. That's because he is clever enough to always search for happiness in whatever situation he finds himself.
    Whether meeting his middle school classmates for the first time in 10 years and enjoying their old pastimes, or eating food that he finds difficult to eat for the sake of a person he likes, Jin-soo feels happy. When he hears from his father, who has fallen into fortune telling, that he's not fated to be together with the woman he likes named Jung-soo, he refuses to give up.
    One autumn day, he hears that a former university classmate that he and Jung-soo used to know has died in an accident. Then he hears that Jung-soo is planning to leave Korea.
