Cable network tvN released stills of the two actresses in school uniform ahead of the premiere of “I Need Romance 3” on January 13.
Kim So Yeon and Wang Ji Won appear wearing the same school uniform, but each give off their individual feel. Kim So Yeon looks neat wearing a headband and her long hair tied up into two ponytails, her necktie fastened tightly and her school jacket buttoned up, looking demure and refined. She’s also got glasses on, making her look slightly more studious than Wang Ji Won.
On the flip side, Wang Ji Won has her hair loose, and her necktie fastened loosely, smiling brightly like a lively high schooler. Their differing appearances foreshadow their future rivalry.
Shin Joo Yeon (Kim So Yeon) and Oh Se Ryung (Wang Ji Won) share a love-hate relationship, becoming best friends forever entangled with one another, but they ended up becoming rivals.
The production staff revealed that these stills depict an important scene in which we learn why Kim So Yeon grows up to become a blunt, calculative and practical person.
The drama will tell the story of the lives of Korea’s “alpha girls” and the rivalry, friendship and love between them, set against the background of a home shopping company.
“I Need Romance 3” airs its first broadcast on January 13 at 9:40 PM KST.
