In the drama, Baek Seung Jo is a genius of IQ 200 and above and is a genius at all kinds, yet one who lives only for himself and does not care about others around him. For this kind of character, in order to bring out the solidity in him, Kim Hyun Joong chose to show it through his facial and eye expressions more than words.

A netizen said, “In terms of his manner of talking and expressions, it was totally Baek Seung Jo”, showing her anticipation. Whilst another netizen, “Baek Seung Jo is totally~ ill bred/rude. I don’t see Jihoo sunbae in anywhere at all. Very~~~handsome~~~” etc.
Negative comments were seen several places too.
Another netizen, “It’s supposed to be a refreshing and bright drama, but why is it so boring all the while? Why didn’t the male lead have any lines?”, revealing her own thoughts.
In today’s episode, it was an episode mainly focusing on introducing each’s character. Baek Seung Jo shows his tough and arrogant character while Oh Ha Ni shows her feelings for the person she fancies though she’s forever the last in school.
