What she hated more than the childish teasing was people's prejudice that she would have been as young and fragile as the heroine. To break free from that prejudice, she always tries her best to show her smart and strong image. She hates being cheesy.
Choi HyunWook as No YeJun

Lim BoRa as Yoon IhNa
