This manhwa starts out so innocently with ridiculous, over-the-top gags and moments with the characters interacting with friends. It seems cutesy and wholesome, and just a tad overly sweet at times. And then they hit you with LGBTQ concerns with coming out and being out, one-sided love, difficulties with overcoming toxic situations, questioning self worth and competency, and so much more. This manhwa seriously does a great job on tackling many of these issues, and left some complications open-ended as not everything can be neatly solved with the power of true love.
I was especially fond of how Min's character was so open, friendly, accepting, etc. One of my absolute favorite scenes was

his rejection to a confession. He sincerely apologized and thanked the person for confessing to him, and told them that he would treasure that moment as it was special to him to have someone share their feelings in such a way.
It showed such a simple, but amazing characterization that I feel is not shown often during those types of scenes.
The characters are never shown as perfect and they often do silly things, if not outright showing bad traits and problematic behaviors. Alcohol is featured very prominently considering their ages, and so drunken antics are quite common, but I'm pleasantly surprised that the author didn't lean on that aspect as a way to progress the plot as many people do. It was very refreshing to be honest.

I look forward to rereading this manhwa again sometime soon, it was a very enjoyable read.
