This ensemble romantic comedy follows four couples as they all get cold feet in the run-up to their weddings. A minor-league baseball team coach, Tae-Kyu (Kim Kang-Woo), is set to marry his girlfriend Joo-Young (Kim Hyo-Jin), a successful urologist. When he finds out that she is a divorcee, he starts to feel jealous of her ex-husband. Florist Gun-Ho (Ma Dong-Seok) is about to marry Uzbek beauty Vika (Guzal Tursunova) but after a bout of impotency, he begins to suspect that Vika is using him for Korean citizenship. Dae-Bok (Lee Hee-Joon) proposes to Yi-Ra (Koh Joon-Hee) when she reveals she is pregnant but they keep arguing during the planning of the wedding. So-Mi (Lee Yeon-Hee) and Won-Cheol (TaecYeon) have been engaged for 7 years but So-Mi feels dissatisfied and runs off to Jeju Island for an unexpected adventure. Will any of these couples make it down the aisle and live happily ever after?
