One day, Eun Soo, a librarian, sees Jun Oh tearing off a certain page of several books and accuses him of vandalism. Soon, she discovers that there’s a complex story behind his actions.
It occurs that Jun Oh’s girlfriend, who was a bibliophile and checked out books regularly at the library, had suddenly left him with only a mysterious note that says “Look up page 198”. Because of the strange note, JunOh goes to the same library and tears out page 198 from every book he comes in touch.
Seeing Jun Oh’s despair for not knowing why the woman he loved had left him, Eun Soo starts to help him find the hidden message on page 198.

~~ Adapted from a short story from the novel “There, You?” (거기, 당신?) by Yoon Sung Hee (윤성희).
