Starring alongside Kim Yo Han is So Ju Yeon. She will be playing the role of Shin So Yi, the Korean counterpart of Chen Xiaoxi. She is an outspoken and consistent girl who confesses to Cha Heon everytime she has the chance. Her cute demeanor always spreads positive energy by being cheerful and optimistic despite being clumsy.
So Ju Yeon is considered as the number one choice for the role for her cute and innocent image. She is expected to stir up heart fluttering chemistry with Kim Yo Han in the upcoming show. She last worked on the second season of Dr. Romantic 2.
Finally, Yeo Hoe Hyun will take on the role of Woo Dae Sung, the Korean version of Wu Bosong. He is a swimming athlete that developed a crush on Shin So Yi after transferring to Cheonji High School.
Woo Dae Sung exhibits as a protective friend, acting as the main girl’s guardian angel. He quietly stays by So Yi’s side and carries a subtle tension with Cha Heon.
The production team said that the drama will be fresh and exciting, containing the comical romance of a high school love affair. It will tickle viewer’s hearts and summon memories of first love.
