There is a lot of hate in the comments so I thought i would write a short review.

First of all this webdrama is based on a webcomic and is not wrapped up at all. For people who are fans of the comic this might not be annoying at all, but if you are a person who likes cleanly finished stories this might not be your piece of cake.

Story: The story is focused on the main lead who is trying to survive school. And I must say he is absolutely hilarious and a huge dork as well. I found it really funny how he screws up every time he has an opportunity. There are also subplots, which a have their own charm. If you expect to see real romance tho, you will be disappointed, because the moment the drama-lovetriangle-heartthumping moments could have started the drama ended. If there were a few more episodes such a nice bromance could have blossomed as well... such a pitty.

Acting/cast: All the characters in this drama are quite exaggerated, which is the main comedy of it. Overall the actors managed to do their part staying funny and not becoming annoying, which can easily happen in these types of comedies. I found Park Geon's and the red haired bully's portrayal the best, I enjoyed each moment of their screentime.

Music: The music want exactly outstanding, but it complemented the story well. Unfortunately my playlist wont become longer.


Overall, I found this webdrama very enjoyable and I will without a doubt rewatch it when I dont have much time, but want to have a really good laugh. It is indeed not the story of the year, neither did it get the chance to live up to its real potential, but I belive it is still worth the time.

Naive, funny and lighthearted.

But only at the first glance. This web drama is about serious problem Korea (and believe me, other countries too) are facing - bullying. And if that problem is put in web drama, that means there's gonna be a lot of violence and other things that are not allowed to be shown on a TV. It's based on a web comic, so it's not for everyone, but I think JDrama and manga-based story lovers gonna like this one.

Story feels like it's been told from first person, the one experiencing bullying. Surviving high-school life full of violence, in search for your place in a society - you are ether part of a group or a loner. If you expect romance or bromance (and there is material for it), there is none. Humor is more Japanese-like, so it might not appeal to everyone. What I really liked is quotes before every episode. And this story definitely needs a sequel cos it's unfinished.

Kwak Dong Yeon is slowly becoming the King of web/mini drama specials (reason I started this drama). In my humble opinion he is one of the best young Korean actors. But I think all the actors did a good job here.

I can't say I'm impressed with music. :/

I rarely rewatch dramas, but this one is short, so if in the future there is a squeal, I'll watch it again.

Don't expect much from this drama, especially if you are not a fan of Japanese-like humor.
