It is the year of the white horse that arrives every sixty years. Three women (Women 1, Hwang Jeong-soon, 2, Nam Mi-ri, 3 Um Aing-ran) avoid sleeping with their husbands so they won’t conceive girls on the year of the horse. However, young and healthy husbands (Husband 1 Park Am, 2, Yoon Il-bong, 3, Shin Seong-il) fall into great dilemma. Husbands make up ‘pestling’ exercise to release their energy and try theirbest to persuade their wives. Episodes such as lying about being pregnant to avoid having intercourse bring about cold war between husbands and wives. But in the end, they decide to forget about superstitions about the fate of girls born on the year of horse and return to their once-happy-relationships with one another.
