Nevertheless is a South Korean drama based on a popular webtoon, with the same title that was first published on Naver Webtoon. Webtoon is a type of digital comic that is usually meant to be read on smartphones.

Nevertheless's opening scene is at an art gallery, where Yoo Na-bi, a sculpture art student, is visiting her boyfriend who did the exhibition at this art gallery. This opening scene is important for the whole 10 episodes of this drama, as this scene links the 3 main characters of Nevertheless, Yoo Na-bi (played by Han So-hee), Park Jae-eon (played by Song Kang) and Yang Do-hyeok (played by Chae Jong-hyeop).

Yoo Na-bi just realised that her boyfriend, an art teacher, was just using her as an object for his art project. He did the same thing for many other of his art students. Yoo Na-bi decided to ditch him after finding out what his true intention was with Na-bi. Being sad, Na-bi went to a pub to clear her mind, where she met Park Jae-eon for the first time. Park Jae-eon mistook Na-bi with his blind date whom he was supposed to meet at this pub. Na-bi is amazed by Jae-eon's beautiful butterfly tattoo on the back of his neck. Na-bi found out that Jae-eon really liked butterflies and even had a butterfly garden in his apartment. Jae-eon was amazed to find out Na-bi’s name which in Korean means butterfly.

At their second encounter, N-bi found out that Jae-eon was her junior at the same university but in a different art department. After many other encounters that they plan or not plan, both Na-bi and Jae-eon become close together. But both of them, because of their relationship with their mother, couldn’t commit to a healthy relationship. Na-bi’s mum has been with many men and Jae-eon's mum left him when he was just 10 years old to pursue her career.

Later on, Na-bi accidentally met her childhood friend, Yang Do-hyeok. Na-bi was Yang Do-hyeok's first love. Do-hyeok runs a popular cooking show on YouTube. Do-hyeok treated Na-bi very well, respected her and all her decisions, and spoiled her with his yummy cooking. Even so, Na-bi’s heart still leads her to Jae-eon who keeps making Na-bi cry.

Nevertheless was released on Netflix.. Even though this TV series is gaining international popularity, it’s plummeted in its home country, South Korea. Some said that it’s because a toxic love story between Na-bi and Jae-eon. The first two episodes of Nevertheless were also banned in South Korea because they are too steamy.
