She has diversified her acting spectrum by appearing in various dramas such as "Love in the Moonlight," "Convenience Store Saet Byeol," and "Clean with Passion for Now".
She is currently starring in the historical fantasy drama series "Lovers of the Red Sky" with Ahn Hyo Seop, Gong Myung, and Kwak Si Yang.
Meanwhile, Byun Woo Seok will take on the role of Bo Ra's classmate , Pung Woon Ho. He showed his acting skills in the romance drama series "Record of Youth", and he raised the curiosity of prospective viewers as he is coupled up with the historical drama princess.
Next, Baek Hyun Jin, Bo Ra and Woon Ho's best friend, who is also secretly in love with Bo Ra, is played by "Love Playlist" actor Park Jung Woo. He is a talented rising actor who stimulates curiosity and empathy with his acting prowess, as seen in the drama "Extra Investigation".
Finally, rookie actress No Yoon Seo will take on the role of Yeon Du, a classmate who likes Hyun Jin from afar. The rising actress landed the role after showing perfect synchronicity during the audition, which raises expectations from potential viewers.
Although Kim Yoo Jung and No Yoon Seo's characters are different in terms of personalities, the two actresses are expected to portray the friendship and colorful moments of being a teen girl in high school who falls in love for the first time.
