Unable to put up with the bullying anymore, Woo Sol ends up attacking Seok Chan with a pen, which is the incident that sends him to prison. Once he starts training with Do Hyun in prison, he overcomes his physical and mental limitations, transforming into a strong fighter.

A vicious bully, Seok Chan makes Woo Sol's school life a living nightmare. The injuries he sustains from the pen attack forces him to give up his boxing, thus setting him on a course for vengeance. Eagerly awaiting Woo Sol's release from jail, Seok Chan swears to make him pay for what he's done.
