  • Six years ago, Judith, an aristocrat from an old, noble house, tearfully left her first love, Dan. In order to stop her stepmother from spreading rumors that Dan was an orphan from the slums and to protect his honor, she had no choice but to abandon him. Now she's twenty-five and has chosen to marry a man other than Dan. Getting married is her only chance to escape the terrible years-long abuse from her stepmother. But with the ceremony close at hand, Dan suddenly appears—she cannot believe her eyes! This is a spin-off story starring Dan, who was a side character in The Love Child.

  • After losing her career and love life, Juliet is back home living with her mother, as if she was nothing but an empty shell. She feels disappointed in herself—she should have become a more careful, reliable, able woman, considering her mediocre childhood and her history of being bullied. Now, she struggles to get back on her own two feet in a hometown where so many memories haunt her. That’s when she unexpectedly runs into Gregor, who, all of a sudden, disappeared from town years ago. Not understanding her bewilderment, he casually calls her “Princess.” Her first love doesn’t even remember her! Is this reunion meant to be her destiny?
