Book Intro

Go Yona is a senior programmer with 10 years of experience at the tourist company Jungle, which sells products that combine disaster with travel. She has been recognized as a great worker, but one day, she's stuck in a crisis when her superior Kim Jokwang sexually harasses her in an elevator. She considers it a yellow card for Kim who habitually committed sexual harassment against those in insecure positions at work. As Yuna submits her resignation, Kim grants her a month of leave from work. Then he suggests that he will take it as a business trip only if she goes to one of the five unpopular tourist spots, takes a tour of the area as though she is a customer herself, and submits a report.

Yona visits Mui, a sinkhole in the desert. There she is on a six-day tour with other tourists, but on her way back to Korea, she gets separated from the group. After many twists and turns, she returns to the resort Belle Epoque where she previously stayed and gets caught up in a strange project.
