This drama is based on webcomic “나빌레라 / Navillera” written by Hun and illustrated by “지민 / Ji Min” which was published from 2016-July-26 to 2017-Oct-31 via Daum Webtoon Corp.

Shim Duk Chul (Park In Hwan) is a 70-year-old retired mailman who decides to pursue his life-long dream of learning ballet, which does not please his family. At the dance academy, he meets Lee Chae Rok (Song Kang), a 23-year-old dancer who became interested in ballet after trying out different sports — his mother was a ballet dancer before she died of a disease when he was young. He is struggling financially and thinks of giving up ballet when he meets Duk Chul, which changes his mind.
