Benjamin was a vegan for fifteen years. Recently he gave it up stating:

"I was a hardcore vegan for fifteen years. I've even done raw. But socially it became horrible. I was kind of just sitting at home eating a salad. You become mean. That's not good for you."

Benjamin posed for a print advertising campaign by Declare Yourself, a campaign encouraging voter registration among youth for the 2008 United States presidential election. In the ads by photographer David LaChapelle, he has his mouth gagged by a bow-tie in a symbolic function.

Kim Gyeong-Su, jeune étudiant bêta et indiscipliné, est renvoyé pour la 9e fois de son lycée pour avoir usé de ses pouvoirs paranormaux contre un professeur. Décidé à ne plus les utiliser, il se retrouve à « Volcano High School », le lycée de la dernière chance où beaucoup d’élèves possèdent les mêmes facultés extra-sensorielles. À son arrivée, il découvre une ambiance chaotique, des guerres de gangs entre élèves, voire entre profs, et se veut résolument neutre. L'origine de ces conflits provient d’une rumeur persistante sur le fait qu’un élève ou un prof surdoué pourrait déchiffrer un manuscrit mystérieux et serait doté de pouvoirs infinis. Pris à partie par certains élèves, et malgré tout son bon vouloir, Gyeong-Su se voit contraint d’affronter ses ennemis.
