Actress Cho Soo Min has been cast in the role of Kang Soon Ae who is Yi Gyeom's first love and the daughter of a kisaeng. She wants to do something different though rather than becoming a kisaeng herself. She is expected to have a plot twist for her character.

Kwon Nara will play the Damo who goes undercover as a kisaeng for investigative purposes. :D She is investigating the corruption in noble families. She is also the daughter of a noble family herself but is in hiding because of a tragic secret which will be revealed in the drama.

Hello to everyone, this drama I think has a talented, hard-working, good looking cast that exudes much warmth, some of whom I've met in previous dramas. Thank you for starting the thread @Jillia :wub: 


Kwon Na-Ra for me was memorable in her monologue about love and AI from 'My Mister" while Lee Tae-Hwan I'll alway remember from Come Back Mister, as a manly bodyguard in love with a person with a womanly body and a 'guy's spirit/soul'. Kim Myung-soo from Miss Hammurabi first, then Angel and Lee Yi-Kyung from Partners in Justice and More Than A Maid..



Happy So Excited GIF
