Storyline

Jun, a Japanese freelance reporter looking for the subject of his next article, stumbles across Moran-dang, a hidden gem of a Korean traditional confection bakery right in the middle of the city of Seoul, bringing back wistful memories of Jun's own childhood in his father's shop. When construction villains maliciously threaten to seize the bakery, injuring a hand of owner/chef Sang-woo so he can't work, Jun steps in to help. It's right then, with the shop in danger of closing, that younger brother Sang-Hyuk returns home after years of drifting away for a rock-n-roll career. As Jun inspires the brothers to rally, restore family ties and reaffirm their late father's recipes, Sang-Hyuk and Jun connect in friendship to save Moran-dang.
