In the drama, Tiger JK will have a special run-in with character named Oh Hyun-Jung, who dreams of becoming a famous rapper. Actress Dohee is currently playing as Hyun-Jung, a friend of main female character Mirae, portrayed by actress Lim Soo-Hyang.

Hyun-Jung was not included in the original webtoon, but she still plays an important role in the drama. As Mirae’s best friend, she makes sure that her friend no longer suffers from pain due to her physical appearance. However, while her main role in the drama is to be the emotional guardian for her friend, she still maintains her personal agenda of becoming one of Korea’s best rappers.

Meanwhile, the drama had gathered much attention for its first cameo, Lee Young-Ae.

In the first episode, the actress briefly appeared as a college senior to two main characters – Mirae and Do Kyung-Suk (Cha Eun-Woo). At the time, a source revealed that Lee has a personal connection to a staff of the drama, and decided to show support through special appearance. In fact, it was such a big deal because Lee is simply a hard actress to see through dramas or films, let alone as a cameo.

Following Lee Young-Ae, Tiger JK has decided to make a brief appearance to show support for the drama. A representative of the drama said, “while Tiger JK’s appearance will be a short one, it will be a fun one. Please look forward to what kind of scene he will make with a rapper-wanna-be, Hyun-Jung. Furthermore, we trust that these short appearances from various celebrities will bring at least a smile to our audience. Please continue to show support and love for our upcoming episodes, as well.”
