* TheCastShowOff:
** Shinwoo doesn't sing in the band and is [[RetCon (supposedly)]] the bassist, however he sings and plays the guitar for Minam in one episode which showcased actor Jung Yonghwa's skills as a lead singer and guitarist of his band Music/CNBlue.
** Jeremy too, played by Music/FTIsland's Hongki, is also merely the drummer but he also has moments where he sings (albeit briefer) which showcases Hongki's vocal skills. Though for one of those moments, [[spoiler:Jeremy is sobbing like a baby while doing so because he just had his heart broken]].



* RetCOn: Shinwoo is stated to be the band's bassist, yet for their band performances shown in the series he plays the guitar instead.

* TerrifiedOfGerms: Tae Kyung.Kyung is a neatfreak who has an issue with hygeine. He's understandably horrified when Minam accidentally kisses and throws up on him.
