This drama series is one of my absolute favourites and is stuffed full of whump! I really recommend this for people who enjoy “hiding injuries/suffering in silence” tropes. Han Jin Woo is an eccentric genius and often uses humour to cover up the fact that he’s in pain, which leads him to be often misunderstood by his caretakers. I absolutely adore his cheeky personality, I find it to be very charming and he’s such a cutie pie. He’s often very witty and he has a way of speaking to his caretakers which should make them mad, but they’re so affectionate towards him that they can’t be angry at him for long. And the best part is; the whump is not over for him! There are five seasons of God’s Quiz in total and his symptoms only get worse in seasons two and three particularly! I will be making a list for those seasons soon too!
Edit: Season Two Whumplist here :)
