He is the rebel of the school that eventually falls for Im Ju Gyeong due to her kind personality. He eventually starts training to become an idol.
Lastly, Kim Su Jin is played by Park Yoo Na. She is an influencer that is said to have a girl crush image. In the webtoon, she is written as Ju Gyeong’s rival.
