Highly sensitive, clean-freak, and arrogant character present in the

who had been rejected all along.
- Ko MiNam / MiNuh (Park ShinHye)
The 4-D character that lacks both communication and social skills.
Living and seeing only the good sides of the world, she is a naive
character. She has no sense of thinking before she acts and imagines
the worst case scenario for everything.
- Jeremy (Lee HongKi)
The rich and famous character from England with such a positive
attitude. He is also the center of the balance between his members.
With his smile all is forgiven and is the member that shows off the
most fan service.
- Kang ShinWoo (Jung YongHwa)
Different from his luxurious image, in real life he is a
expression-less and feeling-less character. He is basically careless
about things around him. He has a big ambition and been living his life
with a sharp eye for everything.
- U HyeEe (Uee)
Nation’s sister and fairy. All her life she had been loved by
everyone. She is known for her sweet smiles, but the truth is that she
has a side of her that is evil and dark. She shows interests for
TaeKyeong and plays a big role in messing around with MiNam when she
finds out she had been a girl all along.
