These people have been living unhappy lives because they've never been able to do what they want.
Ga Yeon's smart, but wants to become a singer. However, the Korean educational system strongly enforces studying to students without considering the goals and dreams of the student. She's been forced to live a life of suppression.
Jae Hee is a piano player, but he's been living in constant delusion of his life. He has mental problems and cannot distinguish reality from a dream.
Dong Woo and Min Seo are a couple who are talented musicians but cannot make music they wish to make because of the current situation of the Korean music industry.
Hyuk's a very good guitar player, but is forced to be in an idol band, rather than what he really wants to be.
The five come together to make a band of their own.
I was first caught by the title when I was browsing through MangaUpdates. I was even more interested when I read the summary. I love stories about music, and after reading quite lots of fantasy lately, I bet switching to a series about real life would be interesting. I'm still reading it at the moment, but I can say that I'm enjoying it quite much. The art is nice, the plot is nice. I like the messages conveyed through the stories; some parts even fit me. I think it's a realistic story, thus making it interesting.
Unfortunately, it seems that the scanlation of this series by Webtoon Live is halted for some reason, although the webcomic has been completed at Naver. Links to MangaUpdates page, Naver page, and Webtoon Live page are all provided above.
