Friends can be potential enemies. Because they know too much about each other.
You can’t protect me, just protect yourself.
~Cha Eun Sung
Sometimes finding an excuse is helpful when you can’t bring up the courage.
Your enemies are not the ones who hold their sword against you.
They are the ones who stand by you with their daggers behind your back.
~Choi Young Do

Finally finished watching this… I am not sure why but this drama just does not seem to catch my attention. Liked the development of the relationship between Tan and Eun Sung, especially at the start. As it goes, it is interesting to watch the Hyo Shin+Rachel couple and Bo Na+Chan Young couple. There are many funny moments like Bo Na confessed (to Chan Young) without knowing the broadcast light is switched on and let the whole school including Chan Young hear it. It is funny when Tan uses Eun Sung’s SNS account to praise himself. It is fun to watch when Eun Sung’s mother uses being mute as an advantage when working for Tan’s mother. She can cancel the words she has written if it is inappropriate to prevent Tan’s mother from seeing it. This prevents her from getting fired because of any rudeness. Unlike Tan’s brother who only thinks of the company, Tan only aims to protect his loved ones. I wonder if it is a good choice for Tan to give up the company, especially since he is not that good at studying (maybe he did not try hard enough).
If it is me, I do not think I can survive the many part-time jobs Eun Sung does. Looks like the more things one has the more burden one feels. The heirs of different big corporations do not have such a good life afterall. For example, Hyo Shin does not have the freedom of choosing to study film instead of law. He thinks that his life is suffocating and survives by eating sleeping pills and seeking psychological help. The outline drawing of a dead person seen in a crime scene on their school ground truly reflects the grave situation the heirs may face.
