Comedically awful. There are only two genuinely good (morally) people in the whole 170 chapters. Neither of which have their own story arcs, though they do get some screen time with other characters. They are the protagonist's mother and the owner of a coffee shop, that's it. Everybody else has their quirks, which are sometimes fine. For instance, one guy is a rich kid who succeeds in his rebellious phase, though he turns into a massive dick to "protect" the protagonist as is cliche in these sorts of dramas. Another is a guy who throws tantrums when things don't go his way and is vindicated for doing so. Though, these are relatively minor things in comparison to other characters.  The protagonist is a compulsive liar who refuses to tell the truth so much so, that the story becomes extremely similar to the boy who cried wolf. Except in this case, he's constantly convincing everyone he's a wolf and then gets extremely offended when nobody believes that he is not, in fact, a wolf after 2-3 years of saying he is. Nobody ever faces conseuqnecse for their actions, like, ever. I really try not to put spoilers in, but this is going to be a minor one to use as an example so you know what you're getting into. A character attempts to kill and rape two completely innocent people. This is not faceitious or misconstruing the events, one of the characters gets to the hospital "just in time" to be saved while the other has to fight to avoid being strangled to death. Within 10 chapters he becomes friends with the people he tries to rape and kill because he says, "my bad, I'm gay." He goes on to face 0 consequences for these actions, in fact, his life only improves. There are many instances wherein the quality of the story would be vastly improved if people actually faced realistic consequences for their actions. Severe emotional damage and/or physical/mental trauma? No problem, instantly resolved. Have you kidnapped or tried to rape or kill an idol? No problem, run free to inflict pain on someone else, our characters are too pure to actually subject someone to lawful things like the legal system, or police, or accountability. What do you mean they just went on to do it to someone else? I forgave them, that should mean they turned over a new leaf and never did it again? Whatever, as long as they don't do it to me it's okay. Seriously, can we get some consequences, I'm begging. But, it also makes the webtoon good, because as somepoint, particularly the attempted rape, it becomes comedic because of the author's inability to write anything realistic. I started just bursting out laughing because of the melo-drama nonsensical misunderstandings placed in this universe where nobody is ever punished for their actions. Frankly, I started to enjoy it even, it became a comedy to me. Though, I would have enjoyed it much more if it were actually good, but it is not. There are many point, particularly in the latest arc, that would have been vastly improved by someone actually dying, even if they killed themselves. There would be proper stakes and characters would actually have to face the consequences of their actions, but they never do. Oh well.
