In the drama, Bona and Yook Sungjae’s characters share a bond as childhood friends and each other’ first loves.

The drama will be helmed by “You Are The Best,” “The King’s Face,” “Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth,” and “Mr. Queen” director Yoon Seong Shik, and will be penned by screenwriter Yoon Soo Jung, who previously worked with the director in “The King’s Face.”
