Rising actor Jung Hae In has finally nailed his first-ever leading role, he will be the male lead of the upcoming Friday-Saturday drama JTBC drama “Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food.”
The drama will tell the story of two people who were only acquaintances but end up falling in love.
“Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food” will be directed by Ahn Pan Seok, the director has previously worked on many projects such as like “Secret Love Affair,” “A Wife’s Credentials,” and “Heard It Through the Grapevine.”
Jung Hae In will take on the role of Seo Joon Hee, he is a character designer at a computer video game company. He returned to Korea for the first time in three years since working overseas. He wasn’t sure whether he’d stay in Korea because of the relatively free life abroad but he changes his mind when he meets Yoon Jin Ah (Son Ye Jin). He tries to not make it obvious that he’s interested but he can’t take his eyes off of her.
Son Ye Jin is taking on the role of Yoon Jin Ah, a store supervisor of a coffee shop business. She lives her life by the motto, “As long as things are good, life is good.” Despite that life motto, she feels empty because she failed to achieve anything during her 30s.
