In Disney+ and JTBC’s K-drama, Jisoo stars as Eun Young-ro, a bubby and bright freshman at an all-female university. According to Soompi, Jisoo explained, “I was nervous because this is a field I’m trying for the first time, but once I was doing it on set, it felt like I had become Young Ro.”

She stars alongside D.P. actor Jung who plays the role of Im Soo-ho. The K-drama is a mixture of drama and a North-South Korean love story. Set in 1987, a pivotal year in the history of South Korea, Young-ro meets Soo-ho on a blind date, and it is instant love.

But Young-ro never expected meeting Soo-ho would drastically change her life. When the government is looking for a North Korean spy, Young-ro finds Im-soo wounded in her dorm room. She helps hide him believing he is a protestor. An act of kindness lands hers, the students, and Soo-hoo in political turmoil.
