The story of yoon jae born with a brain condition called alexithymia makes it difficult for him to feel emotions, like feeling fear, sadness, happiness. These conditions may be something that we rarely encounter, that others cannot readily understand and that can often lead to prejudice and discrimination.
.
Yoon jae was often referred to as "the monster" and shunned by his friends. Yoon jae did not experience emotions like most people in general even at the terrible events that occurred in his life. Until yoon jae met with gon the hyper emotions the opposite of yoon jae. Autors make it great to make two opposing characters interact with each other and simultaneously learn from each other.
.
I love this story about love, kindness and friendship and the special about Yoon Jae's relationship with Gon.
