After the death of Yunmin on his mother's birthday, his mother spiraled into depression and was eventually admitted into a psychiatric ward. From Minu's perspective, his father abandoned his mother and found a new wife, but in reality, Minu's mother asked for them to get a divorce and his father eventually got happiness from someone else. It seems like his father got a new wife and doesn't have contact with his kids' mother but exact information are not given. Minu is shown visiting his mother frequently, always bringing fresh flowers with him and a happy persona. In recent chapters, Minu's mother succumbed to her depression and passed away when she was getting transferred for another evaluation.

In episode 17, Minu surrendered the money his father gave him and left home to live with Jay Jo.
Back in the days, Minu seemed to have lived quite a happy life with his family. Unfortunately, things have changed. His father owns a huge and successful company and earns a lot of money what caused the people around Minu to try to get near him for their own benefit. Minu himself noticed it and also started to 'wear a mask' and play a role. In episode 17, Minu surrendered the money his father gave him and left home to live with Jay Jo. It was hinted at that Minu's leg injury may have been caused by Vinny Hong, despite them being close childhood friends. Minu is quite a simple and good guy. He is loyal to his words and his friends and seems to be a rather pure guy. When people provoke him he most likely falls for it since he is very emotional and impulsive. Minu is quick to anger when someone he cherishes is threatened. He was quick to assume Jay had something to do with the photos posted when Vinny mentioned finishing the pictures on a thumb drive that Jay dropped. And when Jay and Vinny cleared up the situation, he jumped head first into a fight with the Ghost crew with zero back up. If it weren't for Dom and Vinny appearing in the nick of time, he would have been injured more severely.
But with emotions such as saddness or stress, he tends to bottle them up and pretend that everything is okay. After his mother's passing, asides the angry outburst when his father and step mother made an appearance at his mom's funeral, Minu bounced back as if nothing changed. When walking after school with Mia, they encountered a happy family, father and son playing catch in the park. The image must have sparked a memory of his own childhood and suddenly, the floodgate of tears burst open. His body forced him to cry due to the anguish he must have been facing. Minu is a high school junior with auburn-colored hair shaved at the sides and arched eyebrows. He usually wears dark trousers, a white shirt, a pale-yellow sweater vest, and a red blazer to school. His skin is a little tanned and his eyes have a dark brown colour. The right side of his face is now adorned with a scar from the car assault. Before knowing Yuna was Minu's twin, Dom noted to himself that Minu looks very similar to his crush. Minu has made clear his feelings for Mia. After the death of Minu's mother, Mia invited him to a beach trip, there they declared their feelings for each other and are currently in a relationship. Once Minu was paralyzed, Mia was one of the few people to visit him daily and helped him through his depressive state.

Now years later, the rip in their relationship left behind by their little sister's death is finally mending. June and Minu are best and really close friend, Minu seems to care a lot for June and June as well. When Minu quit the Zephyrus crew he quit with him even tho he didn't have to get involved. Jay was annoyed by Minu's persistent company in the beginning. But Minu's constant presence in his life eventually melted Jay's tsundere exterior. They both consider each other great friends. Minu also starts to learns to read the minute changes in Jay's expression and is easily able to tell when he is in a happy mood. Their relationship was a little rocky when Minu abandoned them and when Jay ghosted his friend for a month to find solitude in the mountains but it has since made a solid recovery.
Throughout his hospital stay, she comes by his room to avoid injections.
Jay is now seen to visit Minu often in and was even there to give moral support during his rehabilitation. Jay confided Minu about his feelings for Shelly and even asked for some love advice.

Just 21 frame set were made, each cost about 7500€ The original rear wheel has been swapped out for carbon wheel with the branding "Came Creek", which is a misspelling of "Cane Creek". The front wheel seems to be stock, while the crank is a Shimano chainring and Sugino 75 crankset mix. Minu has also opted for clipless pedals, which are more effective than straps but also prone to unclipping at high speeds, leading to fatal crashes unless the rider has enough control over the bike. From the start to where Wind Breaker is now, Minu has ridden the same bike, but the end of Season 2 may change that drastically.
Shelly is the only female member of the Humming Bird Crew.
Scott Shelly ( Hangul:셸리 ) is one of the female protagonists in the webtoon. She begins a one-sided relationship with Jay at the start of the series but as the story progress they have a mutual crush on each other and as of chapter 378 they are in a relationship. Shelly is the only female member of the Humming Bird Crew. Because she stayed at England before coming to Korea her personality is perceived as very headstrong. She does not like it when people talk badly about her friends, especially Jay. Shelly also has a lot of stamina and strength, she can keep up with the group's pace when racing and can actually send people flying with her punch (Although that may be for comedic reasons) but never got into the street fights with the guys of the crew. When she was hit on in her first appearance on the series she refused with a lot of sass. Mia described her as someone who can confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Although her words are harsh, it is because she never sugar coated her words with her friends. And with Jay, Shelly is very clingy and flirtatious. She has very foreign features: pale skin, her eyes actually look more mint green in color than blue, blond wavy hair. It is known later in the series that she has a tattoo in the side of her arm near the wrist that reads out "temet nosce" or "Know Thyself". At school she wears her uniform usually without the red vest and both wears the skirt and pants.
That also caused the over protectiveness of her grandfather.
She is often seen wearing high-end brand clothing, but also occasionally wearing street wear and tomboyish clothes. When riding her bike, she usually wears a jacket and helmet with the same color as her eyes or the Hummingbird crew's hood. She is tall, with long thin legs, a small waist and a bigger bust. Not much is known about Shelly, but it is established that she is from England and she requested to transfer to Sunny High School because of Jay. It was told in an early episode (Ep. 27) that she will be in Korea for one semester. Shelly is the granddaughter of Sunny High School's principal, Nick. When Shelly was a kid, she didn't want to get married and promised Nick that she will just live with him forever, which caused Nick to think that Shelly is not interested to guys until she got interested in Jay. That also caused the over protectiveness of her grandfather. Jay saw what happened and chased the thieves to get her purse back. She refused on taking him to the hospital but Jay refused. She picked up his student ID that had fallen to the ground and, motivated by her encounter with Jay, called her grandfather, asking him to let her attend Sunny High School. Her second meeting with Jay was in their classroom. She kissed him out of the blue and the gossip that Shelly and Jay were in a relationship quickly spread around the school.
When Jay, Dom and Minu got suspended, Shelly visited them and scolded Dom and Minu badly about how Jay got caught with their actions. Jay got pissed and told her to screw off, she ended up crying and running away. When Jay was about to say sorry, he got a pink rose from Minu, saying that he should give it to her. He couldn't and Shelly went on saying that she'll forgive him if he became her boyfriend for a week and Jay agreed. She joined Hummingbird as the only female on the team, she continued to flirt with Jay and when Jay was teaching Mia how to ride a bike, she kept on intervening and wanting him to teach her even though she knows how. On a special episode, Shelly was seen riding a bike in Jay's neighborhood. Minu and Kay noticed her, Kay was thinking of who might Shelly go out with and ended up being shocked that it was his brother. In the last scene, Jay and Shelly are resting after riding their bike together, and she comments that Jay suits biking more than studying. The Preliminaries for the League of Street has started, only Dom and Jay were able to race at the first two rounds. After that, they found out that Jay's birthday was near and planned to celebrate it. She didn't showed up at school on his birthday because she was the one who prepared the gift that they got for him.
When the boys with the worried June except Jay planned to give Jay a strong alcoholic drink, they didn't expect Shelly to drink it, thinking it was juice. They are dumb-founded and later on, a drunk Shelly came closer to Jay and told her how she was hurt by his actions and proceeding to kiss him the second time. They pulled Shelly of Jay who was already littered with kiss marks. Mia was the one who brought Shelly home, when she was sober enough, Mia asked her if she liked Jay which she answered yes. Mia told her how she envied her for being able to confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Shelly answered that she doesn't understand Mia's concern and told her an advice to start believing in herself more and learning to love herself. This pushed Mia to contact the modeling agency that reached out to her. Before the race, Shelly was being hit on by a member of the Bullet Crew who will be racing against them. The glasses guy kept on hitting on her even when she's denying him. Vinny came to her rescue and punched the guy when he didn't stop.
