This highly erotic South Korean drama takes a sharp and cynical look at modern city life as it chronicles the strange relationship between a writer and a seductively, vivacious young woman. The hero is simply called "Writer" and she "Woman." Writer has written a prize-winning novel, but because he has been suspected of plagiarism, all accolades were rescinded. He is now most miserable until Woman horns in on his life and becomes his lover, his inspiration, his editor, and ghostwriter. Meanwhile, he earns living expenses for them by secretly writing porno stories. Though Woman is utterly devoted to Writer, she occasionally gives her sexual favors for clothing, to advance Writer's career, and in one case, because she feels sorry for his best friend.
