Here are some picks for the lead cast!
Seul Woo is serious and a bit tortured. He comes from a broken family with a vapid, money hungry mother. Since one can dream, our first pick is Kim Soo Hyun! His recent drama, Producer, was way too short! Our second choice is Yoon Doo Joon from BEAST and the Let’s Eat drama series.
Young Woo is innocent and bright. She was brought up in a very traditional Korean environment and she has been devoted to Seul Woo ever since she was a child. Her positivity can rarely be broken.
Shim Eun-Gyung from the film Miss Granny would be a perfect fit as Young Woo. Or maybe Park Bo Young from Oh My Ghostess? Both have the sweetness necessary to bring Young Woo to life.
Jaemin: He is also an actor and Seul Woo’s best friend. He is laid back and friendly and develops a close friendship with Young Woo. He is always there for her when Seul Woo is not.
Jaemin’s silver hair will hopefully not carry over to the TV series, so based on personality alone Cheese in the Trap’s Seo Kang Joon or Reply 1988’s Park Bo Gum would do the trick. Both are the perfect amount of sweet and cool to pull Jaemin off.
Hayoon: She is Seul Woo’s ex-girlfriend who refuses to go away. She’s clingy and depressed. She’s a girl who wants to be saved.

Kim So Eun from The Scholar that Walks the Night and Kim Ji Won of Heirs’ fame both have the kind of beauty that can bring a steely coldness to the portrayal of Hayoon.
