Do Hae Yi (Han Ji Hyun) is a diligent freshman at Theology Department, Yonhee University. Despite her family’s poor financial background, she has a bright personality. Hae Yi works several part-time jobs to support herself and her family. One day, Jae Yi is offered to join Theia —the legendary Yonhee University cheerleading squad— in return for money.
She has a crush on the team’s captain Park Jung Woo (Bae In Hyuk). Meanwhile, a rich and famous campus crush Jin Sun Ho (Kim Hyun Jin) is also interested in Hae Yi. As time passed, Hae Yi became more invested in the cheerleading squad than she intended.
