Won Jin Ah, who made her debut in “Just Between Lovers” as Ha Moon Soo, said that she still couldn’t believe that the drama was already ending.

She went on, “I was happy and grateful for every moment that I spent with the director, writer, senior actors, and production staff. Although I’m sad to have let go of ‘Just Between Lovers,’ I feel honored and happy that the drama turned out so warm and genuine.
