The School Nurse Files presents a refreshing type of heroine – a strange, quirky one in the name of Ahn Eun-young who is destined to help others secretly.

Based on the novel of the same title by Chung Se Rang, Eun-young is the school nurse who cannot escape her fate of having to fight invisible jellies that represent remnants of human desires. She uses the unlikely combination of a toy sword and BB gun to save the school and the students from the jellies. She may have an uninteresting name, but she has exciting adventures ahead of her.

Director Lee Kyung Mi reveals that Jung Yu Mi is the top choice of the novel’s fans to play Eun-young. She is deemed perfect to play the part of an awkward but very determined female warrior; an aloof but very caring school nurse.

In the interview, Jung Yu Mi has expressed that she is also very glad to be able to play the role and to create a synergy with her eccentric character.
