With his lifelong friend Shin Na-ru though, Ji Sung-joon becomes sensitive.

Lee So-hee takes on the role of Shin Na-ru’s close buddy Choi So-ra, who attends the same department as Shin Na-ru. She has a wonderful attitude and is bursting with love for Ji Sung-joon and Shin Na-ru because she values loyalty and friendship.

Shin So-hyun will turn into Yoo So-mi, a bright 20-year-old college student. She’s the type of character who knows exactly what she wants and doesn’t want. Yoo So-mi believes that if she sets her mind on it, dating will be just as easy as studying and making friends. She is smitten by Shin Na-ru at first sight and sets out to change her destiny.

Aquaman will air this summer as a 12-episode mid-form drama.
