This Korean drama centers on a trio of young outcasts as they try to find their place in life and prepare to serve two years mandatory military service. Kim is a cartoonist and is the leader of the three. He wants to win an art contest or get a job, but both endeavors prove difficult. Cho longs to become a cosmetologist and work in his mother's shop, but his father will not have his son working in a women's profession. Kong is slower than the other two and very overweight. He is lonely and living only to eat, but whenever he tries to diet, his parents, who own a restaurant, laugh at him until he starts overeating again.
