The story starts as the MC gets a text from a guy who used to have a crush on her. In order to push him away, she decides to find a random guy’s photo on internet to make it look like she already has a boyfriend. However, the photo turns out to belong to an infamous ‘F**kdere’ King B in her class, Ashton Griffin, and as the title implies, she gets marked by Ashton and his King B friends.
The word ‘King Bs’, which is pronounced as ‘King Bees’ refer to the ‘Iljin’ in Korea, which are the group of popular students who like to play around. Since most of them are troublemakers with outstanding beauty, who distant themselves from academic studies, they are the feared figures in student hierarchy, as well as the wannabes of other students. “Marked by King Bs” is a game which is based on school’s hot topic, the King Bs, and the story is mainly focused on how the male characters change towards the MC as they start a romance with her.
The leader of King Bs who is misunderstood to be MC’s boyfriend. Even though his words are full of thorns, he’s loyal towards the people he likes.
He’s a King B, but he’s also an elite King B. He’s got everything from good looks to wealth. He used to be MC’s childhood friend, but they fell apart when he started hanging out with the wrong crowd.
The ace of the school’s baseball club. He’s one of the King Bs, but he’s not interested in acting like one. He doesn’t talk much since he has a reserved personality, but when he ever does open his mouth, he keeps his sentence short.
He’s bright; overly bright. He’s a know-nothing, nut-headed King B, but that’s his charm. He’s in charge of humor, tantrum and slapsticks among the King Bs.
An adorable younger King B, who lives in the same apartment. The MC first bumped into him in the elevator and for some odd reason, he’s not fully dressed every time they meet.
