Before Changing Schools
Logan Lee used to be a bully to Daniel Park. After seeing his mother’s bullying, he decided to change schools in order to avoid Logan. In his former body, he relocated to a new residence and got into a fight with Zack Lee. He wept himself to sleep, but when he awoke, he discovered he had a new physique that was both attractive and powerful.
Daniel chose to attend school in his new body while working at a convenience shop in his old. He rapidly became popular because of his good looks, and lads were envious of him. In a fight, he defeated both Zack and Vasco and made foes with the Burn Knuckles until Vasco changed his mind. Zack used to bully him, too, until he found out about Daniel’s problems. He made friends with Zoe, Jiho, Duke, and Jay, who became his best buddy, throughout his time at school.
There was a transfer student called Crystal Choi who many people believed was ugly a few months into school. Daniel was smitten by her, and she was smitten by his physical appearance. Neither of them, however, was aware that they shared two bodies. Crystal and Daniel loathed each other when they met for the second time because they each believed the other was arrogant. Before Daniel adopted Enu and gave her puppies to Jay, they took turns caring for the lost dog Enu.
When DG heard about Daniel from Gun, he got intrigued. He assured Daniel that if he brought the four teams together, he might reveal the mystery of his corpses. Daniel met Johan Seong, the God Dogs’ leader, and the two became friends. When Jiho was duped by the God Dogs, Daniel volunteered to assist him to recover his funds. He even assisted Jiho in escaping James Gong, but Jiho grew enraged and shoved the two of them out of a window, causing Daniel’s second body to fall into a coma.
He went across Crystal’s father while attempting to acquire his secret, who told him that he needed to exceed DG in order to learn his secret. Logan Lee had also started tormenting Daniel in his former body, making him woo Zoe for him. Daniel grew overwhelmed and decided to flee the country and live on the streets for a while. When he returned, he discovered Logan was sexually harassing Zoe. He was able to reclaim his second body after fighting Logan in his former body.
Daniel went back to school and ran into Johan, who offered him a job with the God Dogs. He refused, promising to wipe out all four groups. He grew interested in Hostel after learning that they were selling obscene things utilizing photographs of ladies. He entered Hostel and was able to save a few young women from prostitution schemes. While Jace and Johan were battling Hostel, Daniel and his pals traveled to Cheongliang, where they caught up with members of Vin’s former gang who were seeking vengeance.
When Daniel realized that Jasmine had gone away again, he returned to school. He tracked her down after Zack informed him he couldn’t take her home with him. Daniel believed Zack was being unreasonable when he refused to tell him why and started to attack him.

She tries to catch him cheating during the exam but he doesn’t and takes it all in one go. Crystal runs into Enu and then Daniel.
Daniel has two bodies. One is fat and one is skinny.
In his original body, Daniel is usually seen with glasses and is quite short to the point that in the entire plot, only a few come close to his height – the closest being Duke Pyeon and Crystal Choi’s original body. Daniel is shown to be extremely obese, especially considering his height, which is why many characters refer to him as ‘Pikachu’.
In this body, Daniel is deemed unattractive by most, if not all the people he meets, with the exceptions being Crystal and Zoe. It’s usually in this body that Daniel is exposed to the harsh treatment of society and learns the true colors of people.
Daniel uses this body at night to work part-time at a local mini-mart, which is why he’s usually seen in his work uniform.
After his fight with Logan Lee and the incident involving the homeless man who broke his glasses, however, Daniel is noticeably taller and slimmer measuring up slightly taller than Zoe in height and he is not wearing his glasses.
After the intense dieting and training under Sophia, his physical appearance now is similar to his second body except shorter in stature.
In his new body, Daniel no longer wears glasses. He’s tall, possessing the very epitome of a healthy, muscular, and athletic build, and is incredibly handsome – this being his most notable trait, as his presence leaves women infatuated and men intimidated. Daniel’s incredible good looks easily cause many to question whether he is a famous model, idol, or star (which he actually is) going so far as to ask for his autographs and pictures with him, much to his shock.
Even among the most popular of his peers in J High, none have been stated to surpass his good looks, nor retain the center of attention as he does (albeit unintentionally). This has resulted in him being the most popular student in his school. He uses this body to attend school and is usually seen in his school uniform, unless elsewhere.

Daniel Park Lookism Personality
Daniel is a very kind and friendly person at heart, preferring to avoid unnecessary conflicts if he can, but will help those in need even in dangerous situations.
Initially, due to being bullied, Daniel would vent his anger at his mom. However, after some time, he realized just how much she sacrificed for his sake. This filled him with deep and immense feelings of self-loathing and regret his actions towards his mother to the point of vowing to be a better person. He often cries whenever he is reminded of how he treated his mother, such as when in his second body, he was asked to act out a certain role as a test to see his acting skills only for Daniel to cry while reading the script as the part was similar to a part of his life he regretted the most. So as to not trouble his mother financially, Daniel is very humble and responsible as he does not bother with materialistic things unless they cut down on his or his mom’s living expenses (e.g. rice cooker) and is willing to work so he can pay his own living expenses.
Daniel is very sympathetic and protective of those mistreated, either because of their lack of strength or because of how unattractive they are, as he can relate to how both feel and is prone to stand up for them. Though it is implied in the Runaway fam arc he is respectful enough to not interfere in other affairs without permission.
Lack of self-confidence is often Daniel’s biggest hindrance slowing his progress on his goal of trying to be a better person. In some cases, it leads to his being perceived as a pushover who is nothing but a coward. Fortunately, Daniel is constantly inspired by those who diligently work towards their goals, such as Euntae and Duke, and is motivated to put more effort into overcoming his struggles to achieve his goals.
Due to his lack of social interaction with people around him prior to having his second body, he can be naive, much like Euntae, and is unsure how to act when placed under peer pressure. Likewise, he is easily deceived by perceived kindness. For example, he once accidentally agreed to become a host in a club and escaped the club while drunk. Moreover, he thought that Yui genuinely liked him for who he is while in his second body, but was shocked when she treated him cruelly while he was in his original body. He also never smoked or intentionally drank before, and didn’t know how to refuse when putting under pressure to do so. However, this tends to create humorous situations and misunderstandings about him.
After temporarily losing his connection with his current body and being helplessly bullied by Logan Daniel regressed back into his old self before moving to Seoul. But after realizing that this world wasn’t fair and how he needs to work harder to overcome that unfairness Daniel gets a way better appreciation for his old body and becomes more confident in it.
Daniel tends to become belligerent and overconfident when drunk. In later arcs, he is seen to also have an aggressive personality when in a tense battle.
