Hyungmo Yang, the only grandsom his family had, great grades [top 20%], manages to flunk his college entrance exams and ends up a return examinee at a test-prep class. His family is tight on money at the moment and his recurring lack of concentration is making it hard for him to prepare to re-take his entrance exams.

Plot: Hyungmo is a smart guy, but seems to have the worst luck when it comes to exams. He does so terrible, he has to attend prep classes so that he can do better the next time. Things aren't that simple as he's placed in a class with a bunch of ruffians, sidetracked by a beautiful girl and an old friend enrolls in his classes, distracting him even further. Will Hyungmo be able to pass his classes and move on to college. Or at least get the girl? This first volume ended on a bit of a cliffhanger ...more

Hyeungmo failed to get into college--any of them. After bombing the tests, he decides to go to exam school, where he meets the beautiful but conflicted Sora. As the two get closer, Hyeungmo starts to find out that there's more to Sora than meets the eye--and not in a good way!

The graphics are great, gets a little racy sometimes but nothing too bad. A really good story.
