Throughout the series, netizens have been loving the blossoming relationship between Choi Chi Yeol and Nam Haeng Son…


But also, the supporting cast of established and rising stars has given the series so many layers and storylines that work perfectly in harmony.

Yet, amidst all the romance and beautiful storytelling from the main cast, netizens love to hate the fact that there is a dark side to the show.

While love might be in the air, someone dangerous is also going around killing those associated with Chi Yeol and the academy.

While suspicions have been circulating social media since the first appearance, someone unexpected seems to be the key suspect… and it’s none other than Chi Yeol’s support system, Ji Dong Hui (played by Shin Jae Ha).

The handsome friend seemed to do everything right, impressing fans with his efficiency and visuals.

Yet, in the past episodes, netizens have started to realize that maybe Mr. Ji isn’t as innocent as expected. In particular, when someone gets killed or something suspicious happens, Chi Yeol has always spoken to Mr. Ji about that person.

Yet, rather than his intentions being malicious towards Chi Yeol, other netizens believe that it couldn’t be further from the truth. Rather, it could be that Mr. Ji wants to protect Chi Yeol, as he has shown his dedication in the past.

Many believe that he is the brother of Choi Chi Yeol’s student, who viewers found out committed suicide earlier in the series. In particular, many believe that after everything Chi Yeol did for his sister, he has become obsessed with protecting the star teacher, especially after receiving the pen as a child.

At first, it seemed impossible for the calm and practical Mr. Ji to do anything wrong.

In particular, in the most recent episodes, the usually calm and efficient Mr. Ji showcased what could be his true colors. When on the phone and things weren’t going the right way, he got both extremely emotional and angry, throwing his phone across the room.

For many, the theory will be put to the test in the upcoming episodes. Many believe that after the streamer caused so much chaos and hurt for Chi Yeol and those he loves, Mr. Ji’s next target could be him.

If the killer turns out to be Mr. Ji and he is the brother of Chi Yeol’s student who died., it would be impossible to hate him truly. Although the crimes are unforgivable, the fact that it was all done to protect Chi Yeol, the man who was so important to his sister, makes him seem less like a villain.
