As an optimist, he has a firm belief in protecting all beautiful things.
This is Ro Woon’s first historical drama, after playing as main characters of Extraordinary You and JTBC’s She Would Never Know. He plans to illustrate a heart-fluttering romance with Park Eun Bin, who will be playing as a woman dressed up as a man.
