Na Rim is the youngest child of an affluent family. Na Rim and her family are about to go on a family trip when an employee from the family company shows up who has apparently done something wrong. He begs for forgiveness but Na Rim’s grandfather refuses. The family leaves but the employee (CEO?) from the family company follows in his own car, leading to a car accident where everyone in the car with the exception of Na Rim dies. One of Na Rim’s begins to suspect that the CEO of the company is responsible for the death of his family, but the only one alive to tell what happened is Na Rim, who has amnesia. In order to try and get her memory back, one of her uncles hires Oh Dal Gun to create a family for Na Rim on the recommendation that if Na Rim is happy then the chances of her getting her memory back are higher.
Oh Dal Gun has a large debt and in order to repay this debt he has established a company that provides fake families for people in need. Basically actors are hired to play the parts of family members for events such as weddings. Kim Yang Ah is an orphan with 3 younger brothers and makes a living as a fisherwoman. Although cute, she has a temper. By chance she ends up meeting Dal Gun while he is being chased by the men he owes a debt to. Even though Yang Ah helped Dal Gun escape, they eventually find him and beat him to a bloodly pulp, and end up accidentally setting Yang Ah’s boat on fire. Yang Ah returns to find her boat in tatters.
Jang Hang Gu, Park Bok Nyu, and Um Ji Sook all owe debts to the man that Dal Gun works for. In order to pay their debts Dal Gun’s coerces them to work for him. Hang Gu is a dance instructor, Bok Nyu sells potstickers for a living and Ji Sook sells coffee for a living. Bok Nyu and Ji Sook really dislike each other and bicker all the time. Gi Dong works for a debt collection agency. Gong Min appears to be a homeless youth that Dal Gun finds on the streets, but is fact from a very rich family. Having moved out from his family home, he works at a salon as a shampoo boy.
With the majority of the family in place, Dal Gun goes to find the person to play the part of Na Rim’s sister. He decides on a girl that happens to be Yang Ah’s friend, who resists Dal Gun. Yang Ah realizes who Dal Gun is and goes after him. Although not originally chosen to be the sister, since Na Rim has already met Yang Ah and has been told that she is her sister, Dal Gun has to take a long time to convince Yang Ah to play the role.
Yang Ah also happens to meet Ha Tae Kyung when he knocks over her squid stand. They end up getting into an altercation that results in Yang Ah dumping a bunch of raw squid into his car. They later meet again as well when she is playing the role of Na Rim’s sister.
