As you guys might have known, So Yi-jung is one of the F4 members and Chu Ga-eul is Geum Jan-di’s best friend. As one of the F4 members, So Yi-jung has many fans in the school and made him think that Chu Ga-eul is just like his fans who’re crazy for him. On the contrary, Chu Ga-eul thought that So Yi-jung is just an arrogant man who loves flirting with many women because of his status as a playboy.
