Nam Goong Min will be playing the role of Kang Tae Yoon, who is Shin Joo Yeon‘s (played by Kim So Yeon) work senior and a perfectionist, who will try anything to achieve his goals.

She was also in the KBS drama, “Good Doctor.” Wang Ji Won commented, “It’s such an honor to be playing such an attractive character as Oh Se Ryung. I am trying my best to perfectly portray my character so please look forward to it. I think I will have a very happy winter this year while filming for ‘I Need Romance’ season three. I’m so excited.”
