Based on a real-life couple who fell in love in their golden years and found out that sex keeps them young at heart, Jukeodo Joha! follows the explicit sexual encounters of a seventy-something couple. When 72-year-old confectionary vendor Park Chi-gyu meets folk-singer Lee Sun-ye, it takes very little to convince her to move in with him. After vowing to love one another and performing an impromptu marriage ceremony, the two settle into married life. Lee teaches Park how to sing traditional songs (particularly the "Song of Youth", which serves as a constant reinforcement of the nature of their relationship), while Park teaches her how to write. The elderly couple bathe together as if they were children, have sex frequently, and take part in very few arguments. Despite their short courtship, when Lee becomes ill, Park cares for her with an unfaltering devotion.
