Kim Tae Ri and Nam Joo Hyuk’s collaboration promises to generate amazing work.
The new drama is about two people who first meet when they are 22 and 18 and begin their love story four years later when they are 25 and 21.
Kim Tae Ri will play Na Hee Do, a professional saber fencer for the national fencing team after her high school squad was disbanded owing to the IMF financial crisis. She is a passionate and bold character who doesn’t give up.
Nam Joo Hyuk will take on the role of male reporter Baek Yi Jin. It was only because of the IMF financial crisis that his family fell apart. Therefore, Yi Jin had to switch to newspaper delivery and do a part-time job at a book rental store to earn a living.
