Written by Jung Seo, I Know, But is a webtoon that centres on the relationship between 2 main characters, Yoo Na-bi and Park Jae-un. Na-bi is skeptical about true love after a bad breakup with her first boyfriend. She then throws herself into flirting and casual flings, but she isn’t serious about these relationships. 

Similar to Na-bi, the cold and aloof Jae-un can’t be bothered with romance. However, their mindsets start to change as they get to know each other.
