In the web drama, her hardship and growth are less highlighted. In the webtoon, when she was outcasted by her friends, she underwent bulimia but with courage, she got her place back to her friends by herself. However, in the web drama, YuNa solved the issue instead of portraying it as a growing episode for NaRi.

 

2- Less on friendship

The webtoon focuses mainly on the friendship of the four main girls: NaRi, YuNa (acted by Hwang BoReumByeol), SeonJi (FANATICS's DoAh), and MiRae (acted by Han ChaeKyung). However, the web drama does focus on their friendship but also mainly on love stories.

Also, there are a lot of talks from readers about the fact that the web drama had to cut important episodes where the girls got closer through hardship.

 

3- Omnipresence of Jung WooKyung

Jung WooKyung acted by Kwon HyunBin is very much present in the web drama but in the webtoon, he is not seen often. In the web drama, he is an idol but in the webtoon, he is a very famous actor and he is also not going to the same school as MiRae.

4- Change of MiRae's background story

MiRae in the drama is popular and is a trainee to become an idol. However, in the webtoon, she is a child actress that was the victim of evil editing.

In the webtoon, MiRae is a bit boyish and easygoing however in the web drama she gives the image of a bully. Readers of the webtoon can only be surprised to see MiRae liking to receive attention and being active on social media. In the webtoon, she does not like to receive the spotlight. All these make her characters very different.
