With most of the students coming from different parts of the world, they’re experiencing life in Seoul and Korea for the first time. While many of the friends have been around long enough to be comfortable with Korean culture, there are still new experiences to enjoy.

As university students, young love is plentiful and heart-fluttering. The friends experience sweet romance both within and outside of their circle.

From amusement park dates to getting locked into a basement with your crush, there are many amusing yet relatable cute moments. You can get a glimpse of what dating in Korea looks like as the characters go on blind dates, experience breakups, and more.

Charming characters

Each character is unique and charming. There’s Se-wan (Park Se-wan) who is very responsible yet opportunistic. New student Jamie (Shin Hyeon-seung) is a somewhat naive heartthrob who catches the attention of many students. Sam (Choi Young-jae) is playful, mischievous, and can’t stop bluffing.

As the fashionista of the group, Minnie (Minnie) is an avid fan of K-dramas and keeps up with all the trends. South Korean Hyun-min (Han Hyun-min) is often mistaken for a foreigner, but uses it to his advantage to sneak his way into the international dormitory.

Hans (Joakim Sorensen) is an adorable oddball who is quite a stickler for rules. Carson (Carson Allen) acts like a grouchy old fart, but is actually very caring. Finally, we have Terris (Terris Brown) who is a bit of a show-off and a Casanova of sorts.

Amazing cameos
