She Is My Type Webtoon Synopsis
Ha Hae-Dam is a college freshman who experienced trauma in high school. There was a male classmate who was always close to her, and it turned out that he liked her best friend.
Hae-Dam assumed it was due to her boyish appearance. She made the decision to change her appearance before beginning college.
On her first day of college, Hae-Dam puts on a lot of makeup and thinks she looks good. Other students, however, think she is strange and mock her by posting pictures of her on social media.
Hae-Dam is depressed, gets drunk, and goes home. When she’s at home, she hears a lot of laughter from her next-door neighbor, which irritates her even more. She becomes enraged and begins punching and kicking the wall. The wall then collapses and gets completely removed.
Because the wall between the two rooms is no longer there, Hae-Dam can see who lives next door. She recognizes the person as Ji Chan-Yeol, her senior in college. Hae-Dam tries to enter his room, but Chan-Yeol stops her because he wants to hide his secret. That is, Chan-Yeol is a well-known make-up YouTuber, and his room is crammed with cosmetics and wigs.
Although Chan-Yeol is embarrassed, Hae-Dam sees this as an opportunity to learn makeup from him. Hae-Dam begins to look prettier with new makeup thanks to Chan-Yeol, and her life in the shared room with him begins.
