Viral Hit Episode 1 recap

In Viral Hit Episode 1, viewers are introduced to Yoo Ho-bin, a young man whose life is a constant struggle as he juggles the responsibilities of studying and working to finance his mother's cancer treatment. Despite his best efforts, Yoo finds himself relentlessly bullied by classmates, particularly by Woo Ji-hyuk, who is his primary tormentor.

The first episode of Viral Hit paints a vivid picture of Yoo's daily ordeal, making it clear the kind of physical and emotional toll he endures from the bullying. Woo's intimidation tactics escalate to the point where he brazenly enters Yoo's home, so he will be able to use his NewTube account. Yoo makes ramen for him but trips, which leads to the two having a physical fight, and the entire altercation is captured on camera and then uploaded onto the internet.

The next day, Yoo wakes up to an angry phone call from Woo demanding he remove the video. Yoo finally realizes that the video of their brawl has gone viral, garnering millions of views. This unexpected turn of events earns Yoo a substantial sum of money. Woo ends up getting bullied now that the video has made him a laughingstock as well. Woo initially demands a share of the profits from Yoo and his desire to salvage his damaged reputation, though Yoo refuses and the two fight once more.


Woo later discloses that this fight had been videotaped as well, and offers to make Yoo some money as his producer. As Viral Hit Episode 1 concludes, Yoo and Woo reach an agreement to continue recording and monetizing their fights, albeit with Yoo firmly in control of the financial arrangement.
