‘Star Struck’ portrays Seo Han Joon’s enduring love for his childhood friend, Jo Yoo Jae. Knowing his feelings won’t be returned, Han Joon never considered confessing. However, things change when he decides to finally express his love.
The first episode captures a romantic yet wistfully melancholic feeling, reminiscent of gazing up at the stars that were shown when the two had their first encounter. The series presents a suffocating atmosphere with the circumstances the main characters are put into—in terms of family, finance, school, and their hidden feelings for each other.
