Comfort the Boy Webtoon Synopsis
Lee Da-Yeol is a high school student who has decided to pursue archery as a career. He has no other interests aside from archery and is completely dedicated to it.
Lee Da-Yeol has a minor injury and is lying on the bed in the school nurse’s office. He begins to hear the sounds of two male students snuggling behind the curtain. A male student with dark hair notices Lee Da-Yeol watching him through the curtains. He requests that Lee Da-Yeol remain silent.
Lee Da-Yeol panics and accidentally kicks the bar that holds the curtains, putting him in an awkward position with a dark-haired boy.
The dark-haired boy’s name is Cho Tae-Hyun, and he is Lee Da-Yeol’s classmate. When the nurse walks in and sees them, Cho Tae-Hyun pretends to be sexually harassed by Lee Da-Yeol. Lee Da-Yeol is brought to his teacher and chastised for harassing another student.
Lee Da-Yeol becomes enraged and confronts Cho Tae-Hyun about lying to the teachers. Cho Tae-Hyun thinks what happened to them is not a big deal since the teacher did not punish Lee Da-Yeol.
From the day of the accident, Lee Da-Yeol begins to run into Cho Tae-Hyun in unexpected places. He happens to be on the same group project team as Cho Tae-Hyun. Lee Da-Yeol hates Cho Tae-Hyun at first, but as he gets to know him better, he starts to think Cho Tae-Hyun is quite attractive.
