It is written by Kim Min-seo, who wrote Little Black Dress, and created by Jung Hyun-jung, who wrote Five Enough and Discovery of Love. Oh Jin-seok, who directed Yong-pal and Goddess of Marriage, will be at the helm of the “trendy romance story”.
Jisoo, who made impact in Strong Girl Bong-soon, Jung Chae-yeon who gained popularity not only as a singer but with her acting in Drinking Solo, and Jinyoung, known as an all-round entertainer and for his role in Love in the Moonlight, will join as the three main cast of the series.
