Blueming (Who Can Define Popularity?) Webtoon Synopsis & Characters
Siwon was a chubby, unpopular kid. He had a crush on a girl, and it took a lot of guts for him to confess to her.
However, the girl rejected him and said that she did not like Siwon’s looks.
Siwon has worked hard since then to improve his appearance, and he has succeeded.
At freshman orientation for college, Siwon is the most attractive person in the group. He is pleased with himself that he is no longer a chubby boy.
However, there is another person who receives as much attention as he does, and his name is Daun.
Daun has sparkling blond hair and a lovely smile.
Daun is not only attractive but also gentle and kind. When Daun finds Siwon, he tells him, “You look like a model.“
Siwon tries to avoid being next to good-looking guy Daun after their first encounter, but they happen to be in the same lecture, and even in the same project. Daun casually invites Siwon to dinner, and Siwon accepts.
While the two are eating, Daun expresses his feelings for Siwon, saying, “You are the first person to really see me for who I am.”
Siwon finds it strange and tries to return home. He is in a hurry and slips on the floor, but Daun catches him before he falls.
Will the two popular students, Siwon and Daun, form a relationship?
