Aquaman Original Webtoon Synopsis and Characters
It’s the Christmas season, and 24-year-old Shin Na-Roo is walking down the street alone. He was supposed to have a blind date, but it was canceled. He feels sad that he has never had a girlfriend and wonders when he will find love.
While Shin Na-Roo is alone in the restaurant eating ramen, his best friend Ji Sung-Joon texts him.
Shin Na-Roo recalls hanging out with Ji Sung-Joon as one of his favorite high school memories. They were classmates who belonged to the same drawing club as another friend named Choi So-Ra. The three all attended the same college and remain close friends.
Ji Sung-Joon is at a cafe with a girl who likes him, but he still invites Shin Na-Roo over. Ji Sung-Joon asks the girl to leave before Shin Na-Roo arrives.
The female becomes enraged and curses him, but Ji Sung-Joon appears unconcerned.
Shin Na-Roo has never had a girlfriend, whereas Ji Sung-Joon has always had females who like him. Shin Na-Roo seeks advice from Ji Sung-Joon on how to find a girlfriend. Ji Sung-Joon suggests that he get a part-time job in a bakery so that he can make female friends while also earning money. Shin Na-Roo agrees with the idea and starts working in a bakery. In the bakery, he meets Yoo So-Mi, who also works there part-time.
Yoo So-Mi was initially not so friendly toward Shin Na-Roo because he wasn’t good at bakery work, but she gradually warms up to him as she sees him as a good person. They became good friends and frequently talk about their days at the bakery.
While walking down the street, Shin Na-Roo and Yoo So-Mi run into Shin Na-Roo’s best friend, Ji Sung-Joon. Shin Na-Roo is delighted to introduce his friend to Yoo So-Mi. Ji Sung-Joon, on the other hand, does not seem pleased to see them together. He casts a sharp look at Yoo So-Mi.
For some reason, Ji Sung-Joon appears to be particularly concerned with the women Shin Na-Roo meets.
Meanwhile, Yoo So-Mi develops feelings for Shin Na-Roo. When Shin Na-Roo says he’ll be changing his working hours to other days soon, Yoo So-Mi becomes concerned that she won’t be able to see him as often. She gets a flutter when she sees Shin Na-Roo.
Will Shin Na-Roo be able to find his first date soon? If so, who is that person?
