Jung Hae-in will play Im, the leading male role and co-star of Jisoo. His character is a top university student who mysteriously appears in the middle of a female dormitory covered in blood. Jisoo plays a bright student who treats his wounds and helps him. The plot sounds really exciting!

Jisoo’s fans shouldn’t worry because the series has already started production, and we will soon enjoy watching the K-pop star in her awaited debut as leading actress.
