It is the 108th year of Volcano High School. On the schoolyard, students and teachers hang in the air, competing against each other, using martial arts. Every student there is a martial arts expert, so it is not surprising to see tea leaves moving in the shape of dragons or hallway windows shattering into bits with no one touching them.

At Volcano High, the legend of the Secret Manuscript – the onewho inherits these writings will rule the world – has been continuously passed down. The Secret Manuscript is more famous because it helped the principal Jang Oh Ja calm 17 years of internecine feuding due to the privatization of schools. From the outside, Volcano High School seems peaceful. However, a bitter showdown for the Secret Manuscript is at hand. Among the challengers is the assistant principal who thirsts for the principal’s position; Song Hak Rim, and Jang Ryang, captain of the weightlifting team who dreams of becoming the best at Volcano High.

On a windy, rainy day with thunder and lightning, Kim Kyung Soo transfers to Volcano High, his ninth school for he has been expelled from eight other schools because he cannot manage the power he is gifted with. Having become a problematic student despite his intentions, Kyung Soo is determined to graduate from Volcano High no matter what happens. Volcano High regards Kyung Soo as the eye of a hurricane. Will Kyung Soo manage to graduate in the middle of the violent storm caused by the battle for the Secret Manuscript?
