In the drama, Han Ye Seul will play top star Sa Jin Jin and will contrast the glamorous image of an actress with her girlish appearance in her everyday life. Mina will depict the character’s teenage years. This aspect of the drama will show Sa Jin Jin’s pre-debut self as an average and vivacious high school student living in the 1990s.
The pictures were released to allow viewers to compare adult Sa Jin Jin with teenager Sa Jin Jin. The first set of pictures displays the wonderful synchronization between the two actors, as we see adult Sa Jin Jin standing outside of her old high school to take a photo, while teenager Sa Jin Jin daydreams in class. Even in the next set with the two actresses staring intently at someone, they showcase strong resemblance. With their sweet smiles always in full bloom, the two actresses are reported to be well loved by the staff for keeping up a comfortable atmosphere on set. A representative of the production company commented that the actresses do their best to express the innocence that Sa Jin Jin holds not just in her high school years, but also 20 years later, and watching them will feel like observing the actual life of one person.
