This upcoming cine-drama follows Sua, an aspiring teacher who embarks on her student teaching experience at a local high school. She becomes suspicious about a student named Boo Young Suk, who does not call out his name despite being in the attendance book. As Sua attempts to get Boo Young Suk back to school, a terrible incident unfolds in the school.
Kim Sohye will play Sua, the student teacher who has an overwhelming sense of justice and a nosy personality. She takes a special interest in a student who does not show up to the class she teaches. Sohye rose to fame after competing on Mnet’s Produce 101 in 2016 and debuting in I.O.I. She received praise for her acting after appearing in various shows and movies.
Jung Yoo Suk will play Boo Young Suk, who is 11th on the roll call sheet and is mysteriously absent. Young Suk is a suspicious student who has been absent for a long time. As Young Suk begins to come to school again, ominous incidents begin to happen.
Lee Kyu Hyun will play Ji Hoon, the teaching advisor for Sua. He is a teacher who takes no responsibilities as an instructor and has no ounce of empathy for the students. Despite his proper image, he is shameless and indifferent.
Ryu Ui Hyun will play Sua’ boyfriend, Dong Hee. He takes care of Sua, who has a hard time training to become a teacher. Dong Hee is the “model boyfriend” for many. He recently garnered much attention for his performance in the popular web drama A-TEEN.

Yoo Na Kyul, a former member of Hello Venus, will play Mina, who is the popular “insider” class president. Although she has a bright and cheerful personality when talking to Sua and her friends, she exhibits hostility towards Young Suk.
Min Karin, a member of girl group Elris, will play female high school student Yoon Mi, who is also an introvert. Even though she usually does not like to interact with others, she reveals hints about Young Suk’s secret when she opens up to Sua.
Lastly, Park Ji Hoon will play Tae Gyu, a high school student who bullies Young Suk.
