Lee Ma-ha (Jung Ji-so) is a member of the Kpop girl group "Tea Party". Despite the group's lack of popularity, Ma-ha has received some media attention due to her physical resemblance to the popular solo singer, La Ri-ma (Park Ji-yeon). During a reality TV program where idols participate in sporting events, Ma-ha accidentally injures Hyuk (Choi Jong-ho), a member of the famous boy group Shax. Another member of Shax, Kwon Ryok (Lee Jun-young), develops a dislike of Ma-ha as a result of both the incident and her attempts to gain popularity by imitating Ri-ma. However, the two are forced to cross paths on television programs and when they are cast in a drama together. Meanwhile, Ma-ha's childhood friend and fellow idol, Lee Yu-jin (Jeong Yun-ho), from the group Sparkling, has feelings for Ma-ha and tries to shield her from what he believes are Ryok's negative intentions towards her.
