Synopsis Itaewon Class
On the first day of attending high school, Park Sae-Roy punched his classmate, Jang Geun-won, who bullied his other classmates. Jang Geun-won is the son of CEO Jang Dae-Hee (Yoo Jae Myung).
Jang Dae-Hee was later found to be running the Jagga restaurant business where Park Sae-Roy’s father worked. He demanded that Park Sae-Roy apologizes to his son, but Park Sae-Roy refused. The rejection put Park Sae-Roy in trouble. He was expelled from school and his father was fired from Jang Dae-Hee’s company.
Shortly thereafter, Park Sae-Roy’s father died in a motorcycle accident caused by former classmate Jang Geun-won. Park Sae-Roy, who was burning with anger, took revenge on Jang Geun-won.
Park Sae-Roy again felt unfairly treated. He was arrested and received a prison sentence for the violent attack on Jang Geun-won. Since then, Park Sae-Roy decided to destroy Jagga’s company and take revenge on CEO Jang Dae-hee and his son, Jang Geun-won.
After being released from prison, he opened a restaurant in Itaewon, Seoul. Jo Yi-Seo (Kim Da-mi) who is popular on social media then joins Park Sae-Roy’s restaurant and works there as a manager.
Holding fast to the conviction and anger over what happened to his father, Park Sae-Roy then became friends with another young man who was equally stubborn and fearless. They then together pursued dreams among the narrow streets of Itaewon.
