Following the confirmation of Ong Seong Wu, actors Kim Hyang Gi and Shin Seung Ho are also set to star in Eighteen Moments (literal title). The drama will depict moments in the lives of 18-year-olds as they experience emotional highs and lows.

Kim Hyang Gi (Along with the Gods) plays Yoo Soo Bin, an honor student who is under her mother’s tight scrutiny. Although she is a genius, her mother takes over her life which leaves her with no clear ambition and goals. Her ultimate dream is to be independent and free of her mother’s control.
