But Eunho lives in a different world. She has no worries, since she has found out about special admission for students talented in drawing webtoons for her dream school.
At Geumdo High School, your academic achievement decides your social class. Even school lunch is served in the order of rank.

He says, “I don’t have to study hard. My family’s got a lot of money.” Daehwi and Taeun are completely opposite of each other, and they seem to despise each other. What could have happened between them?
During the mock exam, music suddenly blasts out from the speakers and the sprinklers go on, and the whole class goes wild! The students who are tired of taking tests are excited and call the culprit a “hero,” whereas the school principal Yan Dojin g is furious.
