So Hee also said, âI thought he was similar to the webtoon character. There was a lot of fan choice over who should play the role and I really felt he was a great candidate.
She added, âKang has a bubbly character. Her charm is very different from Jae Eon because it is very pure and that is the kind of charm that Song Kang currently has and that kind of contrast makes it even more charming.
