This extremely rare type of love story is between alien Gyeong-Min and Han-A from Earth. This is the second full-length novel by Chung Serang, who received the Changbi Prize in Novel and the Hankook Ilbo Literary Award.
Han-A has a boyfriend of 11 years named Gyeong-Min who she liked since she was 20. Unlike Han-A, who likes to stay in familiar places, Gyeong-Min is carefree and goes to Canada alone in the summer to watch a meteor shower. Han-A was emotionally hurt by Gyeong-Min, who didn't consider her circumstances, but convinces herself that resignation is also a part of affection.
Han-A becomes concerned after she hears the news that a meteor fell in Canada, creating a disturbance. Gyeong-Min came back safely but he has become somewhat unfamiliar. He no longer has a large scar on his arm and he finds seasoned eggplants delicious even though he hated them before. Above all, he always made Han-A wait but he now pays attention to Han-A at all times and gives Han-A the feeling that "they are closer." Hana-A becomes suspicious of the new Gyeong-Min and his strange behavior. She is confused, thinking that something is going wrong…….
