Song Kang, Park Min Young, Yura, and Yoon Park To Star In JTBC Drama
Park Min Young will play the ‘outsider’ Jin Ha Kyung. Her character is cold as ice and that’s why she has a few friends at the office. Moreover, she is super intelligent and likes to follow things by the book. She also makes sure to keep her personal and professional life apart. Due to her personality, she is known as the outsider of the office. The actress was last seen in 2020 in ‘When The Weather IS Fine.’
On the other hand, Song Kang will be starring as the free-spirited Lee Shi Woo. Shi Woo always thinks outside the box. He might appear to be clumsy, but he has an IQ of 150 and can achieve anything if he sets his eyes on it. Among all this, all he can focus on is ‘Weather,’ and it is the only thing he cares about. Song Kang is currently starring ‘Nevertheless,’ and has been receiving incredible reviews.
Yoon Park will play the role of Han Ki Joon. His role is quick-witted, and he has the power to persuade people easily. Due to his silver tongue and handsome face, he is able to get scouted by the spokesperson office after struggling at the beginning of his career. Also, all his life he lived as an A+ student. Hence, he cannot handle failure. Park was last seen in ‘Birthcare Centre.’ Watch it here.
Lastly, we have Girls Day Yura (Radio Romance), who will play the daily weather reporter Chae Yoo Jin. Chae Yoo Jin joined the job with soaring dreams of breaking news, exciting scoops, and on-site reports. However, she gets cast into the “weather and lifestyle team.” Initially, she did not like her assigned role, but gradually she grew fond of her job.
