Due to Seoul rezoning, they've been moved over to the better, cleaner Jeongsang High. Jeongsang has its own BigManOnCampus rock band ''Strawberry Fields'' led by rich and popular Yoo Seung Hoon. Naturally, ''Strawberry Fields'' become [[TheRival rivals]] to ''Eye Candy.'' The rivalry is heightened by the fact that both Byung Hee and Seung Hoon have fallen in love with [[BrokenAce Su Ah]].
