Although he lacked good grades and height, Lee Won is a passionate individual. One day, he discovered that his younger sister, Lee Jin, kept her computer on until late at night.
“My sister, who can sometimes be a pain… she seems to be writing web novels or something.”
Out of curiosity, Lee Won began reading the text on the monitor.
“Ji-oh… looked down at Lee Won…?!”
Lee Jin is writing a BL (Boys’ Love) novel featuring Lee Won and Ji Oh as the main characters. Moreover she claimed to have witnessed the two of them kissing in real life. In response, Lee won impulsively declared, “If I had thought that kissing Kim Ji Oh at the time was a real thing, then this novel will come true!”
However, after that day, cliche events from the BL novel started happening to the two of them in real life. To make matters worse, their friend Sun Woo also got involved with Yu Gyeom, a senior in the same department. Could it be that Lee Jin’s imagination had truly become a reality?

Meanwhile, Lee Sang Min plays Woo Seon Woo and Park Chang Hoon as Go Yoo Gyeom, both college students majoring in directing and photography at Hankuk University.
