EXID’s Hani Wakes Up With Regrets After A Passionate Night On “How To Be Thirty”
Kakao M’s “How To Be Thirty” is a relatable romance drama that follows the work and love lives of women who have just entered their thirties. Jung In Sun stars as successful webtoon author Seo Ji Won, while Hani plays her close friend Lee Ran Joo, an announcer who achieved success at an early age.
Although the poised, professional, and popular Lee Ran Joo seems to have it all, her love life has been a bit of a mess up until now. A free spirit who has dated countless men, Lee Ran Joo has broken many hearts over the course of her reckless romances. At the age of 30, she decides that she’s had enough carefree dating for one lifetime and is ready to be more choosy about the credentials of the guys she dates.
However, things don’t quite work out the way she hoped: on the previous episode of “How To Be Thirty,” the 24-year-old Hyung Joon Young (played by Baek Sung Chul) threw a wrench in her plans by showing up at a blind date pretending to be a 35-year-old attorney. After drinking expensive whiskey straight, Lee Ran Joo ended the episode intoxicated and leaning dangerously into Hyung Joon Young.
In newly released stills from the drama’s upcoming episode, Lee Ran Joo wakes up to find that she has made a colossal mistake. Although she initially looks peaceful as she lies asleep in bed, she starts to panic the moment she opens her eyes and realizes where she is. Shortly afterwards, she tears at her hair in frustration as a flood of regret washes over her, visibly kicking herself for her monumental slip-up the night before.
To find out how Lee Ran Joo will handle the aftermath of her unexpected night together with Hyung Joon Young—and how the incident will affect her 30-year-old life—tune in to the next episode of “How To Be Thirty” on March 2 at 5 p.m. KST!
