Kim Yo Han will play Cha Heon, a 17-year-old perfect boy who is handsome and smart. He seems like a cold-hearted man with an indifferent expression, but the truth is, he is simply not good at expressing his feelings.
As soon as the news of Kim Yo Han receiving the offer came out, netizens praised the perfect “synchronization rate” between the original character and Kim Yo Han.
So Joo Yeon plays the role of Shin Sol Yi, a refreshing high school girl who has had a crush on Cha Heon for 17 years, leading the heart-fluttering romance.

She might be clumsy, but is cheerful and optimistic character who always spreads positive energy around her.
