TaeKyung, the lonely and voluntary outsider of Saebit Boys High School thought: "Will I be okay like this?". He comforted himself saying it was okay, but he is envious of his friends and feels lonely. One teacher got to know about his thoughts and suggested to him to enter the School Student Council.
All the students of the council agreed that he enters the council except for ShinWoo. On the other hand, the friendly Student Council president DaOn takes extra care of TaeKyung whom he finds cute.
How will the project of TaeKyung (the one who entered the peaceful Saebit Boys High Student School Council) to make friends will go?

The Man BLK's Choe ChanYi as Shin DaOn
DaOn has the best grades and is the Student Council president.

One day, one boy stays close to DaOn and takes her time with him. She starts to get jealous of TaeKyung because of the way DaOn is looking and smiling at him. She wants to separate them.
