Park So Dam as An Jeong Ha

Park So-dam, with her commanding onscreen presence, will play An Jeong-ha. She is an aspiring makeup artist and a smart young woman with a strong self-esteem. With inherent wit and hard work, she follows her own path and finds security in her own unwavering resolve under external pressures.

As part of the critically acclaimed and Cannes award-winning film, Parasite, Park’s new series breaks her small screen hibernation.

Byun Woo Seok as Won Hae Hyo

Byun Woo Seok readies to portray Sa Hye-jun’s best friend Won Hae-hyo who wants to prove himself through hard work. He is friendly and gentle, but competitive. Because he gives his utmost effort to the things he cares deeply about, he cannot stand being brushed off just because he was born into privilege.

Strengthening his acting portfolio, Byun has left lingering impressions in dramas he worked on. That includes Dear My Friends, Search: WWW and Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency.

Record of Youth, produced by Studio Dragon and Pan Entertainment (Winter Sonata, The Moon Embracing the Sun, Fight for My Way and When the Camellia Blooms), will premiere exclusively on Netflix outside Korea in the second half of 2020. While in Korea, tvN has the show’s first-window broadcast rights.
