The new Wednesday and Thursday drama "People Who Look Like You," which is helmed by director Im Hyun Wook and penned by writer Yoon Bo Ra, released an exclusive making video of the drama on September 28.
It follows the story of a woman who abandoned her picture-perfect life to pursue her own desires with the encouragement of a stranger she met briefly.

Go Hyun Jung, who will lead the drama, takes on the role of successful painter and essayist Jung Hee Joo.
She described her character as "a woman who lived her life with no regrets." However, after meeting "someone," drastic changes occurred in her life, which caused her conflicts.
On the other hand, Shin Hyun Bin introduced another character who will lead the melodrama, Goo Hae Won, a free-spirited art teacher.
According to the actress, Hae Won is a "poor yet dreamy and hopeful person". But like Hee Joo, an unusual event took place which flipped her life upside down, raising expectations.
In addition to that, Kim Jae Young, who will take on the role of crestfallen Seo Woo Jae, shared, "He is the main character as he lives his difficult life."
