Actress Jeon Yeo Been will star as Joon Hee who travels back to 1998 to wake up in the body of 18-year-old Min-joo. Likewise, Ahn Hyo Seop will also take on the dual roles of Yeon-Joon – Joon Hee’s boyfriend who passed a year ago, and Si-Heon, the 1998 “version” of her deceased BF. Meanwhile, actor Kang Hoon will be playing the role of Si-Heon’s BFF In-gyu who for the longest time has been nursing a crush on Min-joo.
