Together they went auditioning at Kirin High School of Arts. But

Something happened during the audition.

Something broke and with that come the greatest test of 2 friends! You need to watch it to find out. Hehe Then come this troubled youth

Jin Kuk, a gifted dancer but is a loner and rebellious. He owns a motorcycle (girls will swoon at this) and helps Heymi every time she gets into trouble. Hes Hyemis savior.

Sam Dong, a country boy who falls in love with Hyemi and sort-of follow her to Kirin High School of Arts. Hes Hyemis protector. So yes I bet you would know by now theres a love triangle heating up.

Hyemi, Jinkuk and Samdong.

Performing for Jinkuks friend. I love to see them together.

But Im gunning for Hyemi & Jinkuk . Ill stop the story telling here for Im only interested in Hyemi, Jinkuk and Samdong. Hehe

Ill reveal the result once the drama ends. Come on we cant let Sam Dong win. Hehe Heres the final poll result (thank you to those who take part): So yeah Sam Dong wins.

Ahem romantic. I prefer the snow and umbrella scene. Cant find any photos of that scene. In terms of acting wise,

I love Bae Sujis acting as Ko Hyemi. It was her first acting in a drama and shes done really well. Love her strong-will personality.

And I like teacher Kang Oh-Hyuk determination!
