Joining the lead couple is Oh Na Ra (Sky Castle). Portraying the role of the heroine’s friend whose affluent life is the exact opposite of what her hardship-stricken friend has to encounter.

Known for her superb character improvisations, Oh has starred in recent popular dramas including My Mister and Judge vs Judge.

Meanwhile, Yoo Young Jae (B.A.P) challenges his first dramatic role. He will be connected to Kim’s character as a part-timer to a computer shop he manages. Although he looks ordinary, he is equipped with hacking powers since middle school.

Going solo after B.A.P’s disbandment, Yoo released his first mini album Fancy in April 2019. He has also appeared in jTBC production Kim Seul Gi Genius.

Penning the project is Han Ji Hoon whose most recent dramas include Night Light and Last. Calling the shots would be Director Kim Young Jo of Hwarang and Oh My Geumbi fame.

9.9 Billion Woman is slated for November broadcast via KBS2.
