Gyoza, a sophomore in electrical engineering and the leader of the student council encounters Manaow, a freshman on a mission to gather signatures from seniors.
Gyoza, always maintaining her cool, doesn’t just give away her signature. Instead, she encourages Manaow to team up with her friend Ali and participate in a competition for beginners.
Manaow becomes increasingly fascinated by Gyoza as they interact, witnessing a gradual thawing of Gyoza’s cold demeanor and the emergence of a shared fondness between them.
However, Gyoza finds it challenging to conceal her emotions as she carries the weight of her responsibilities as the student council president.
The Thai GL series drama, with its slightly cringe-worthy twists like car crashes and amnesia, remains a must-watch for its exceptional production and captivating storyline.
The dynamic between the senior and junior is incredibly appealing, and the inclusion of a lesbian subplot adds an extra layer of excitement, particularly for the lesbian audience.

When their paths intersect once more in the office, Mon is taken aback by Sam’s cold demeanor, which contradicts the friendly impression she has always had and the person Mon herself strives to become.
Their differences extend far beyond mere attitudes; they are worlds apart in social standing, separated by an eight-year age divide.
At first, Sam is unaware, but with some encouragement from her friends, she begins to understand Mon’s strong feelings. She comes to the realization that the complex emotions she has for Mon are actually love.
