Han Tae Joo (Han Gi Chan) is an 18-year-old high school student and is the sole heir of the TB Group – a family-run business conglomerate.
His strict parents keep him under surveillance 24 hours a day, and he feels both bored and oppressed by their reluctance to let him enjoy a little freedom.
His closest friend is also his unofficial bodyguard – another 18-year-old male student named Gang Gook (Jang Eui Su). Gang Gook is something of a tough guy, with a powerful physique and a no-nonsense attitude.
But as the two young men grow older, they come to wonder if there is perhaps another dimension to their friendship.
When an outgoing female student named Hye Mi (Choi Gyu Ri) is transferred to their high school, she inadvertently drives up the romantic tension between the two childhood friends by going on a date with Gang Gook – irking Han Tae Joo, and stirring up long-suppressed emotions.
Will they act on their desires, or will Han Tae Joo and Gang Gook’s friendship remain platonic?
