Synopsis: Three years after their lavish wedding hailed as the wedding of the decade between Hong Hae-in (Kim Ji-won), the heiress of Queen’s Group, and Baek Hyun-woo (Kim Soo-hyun), a newcomer lawyer in the company, tensions rise in their relationship both at work and at home. Rumors circulate within the legal team that Baek Hyun-woo is preparing to divorce Hong Hae-in.

Three years ago, Baek Hyun-woo pursued and fell in love with Hong Hae-in, thinking she was just a new intern at the company. However, upon discovering that Hong Hae-in is the heiress of Queen’s Group, Hyun-woo was shocked. He decided to quit his job and return to his hometown immediately, leaving Hae-in shocked. She followed him and promised never to make him shed tears again, leading them to reconcile and eventually get married. Baek Hyun-woo becomes the head of the legal department at Queen’s Group.

Meanwhile, Hong Hae-in, the queen of Queen’s Department Store, the third-generation heiress of Queen’s Group, is striving to achieve sales targets for the department store, facing pressure from her position as CEO and the competitive market. This leads to conflicts between her and her husband during a board meeting, where she asserts her authority and disregards Baek Hyun-woo’s advice. This situation is further aggravated by Hong Soo-chul (Kwak Dong-yeon), Hae-in’s mischievous younger brother, who causes a scene at the family dinner, exacerbating the tensions between the couple.

Baek Hyun-woo’s stress over the divorce leads to loss of appetite and sleepless nights, despite the pressure from his father-in-law, Hong Bom-joon (Jung Jin-young), who warns him about the consequences of leaving Queen’s Group. He eventually decides to confront his family about the divorce, revealing that he is unhappy and apologizing for his behavior towards Hong Hae-in.

As Hae-in is puzzled by her husband’s behavior and their unresolved issues, they continue to bicker but also show moments of care and concern for each other, reminiscent of their initial romance. However, their relationship faces another hurdle when Yoon Eun-song (Park Sung-hoon), a prominent member of a famous family who had a past relationship with Hae-in during their overseas studies five years ago, returns to Korea and rekindles their connection. Baek Hyun-woo becomes increasingly suspicious and resentful towards his wife as he witnesses them getting closer.
