The upcoming romance series centres on a pair of longtime friends and music lovers who end up living together for two weeks. The two end up threading the line between love and friendship in the process of making music.

Han has been offered the lead female role of Seo Eun-soo, a lyricist who made her debut three years prior to the beginning of the drama. She is described as a lively and straightforward character who is honest and open about her emotions.

The four-episode drama is scheduled to premiere in early 2022, and will be released via an as-yet-unnamed OTT platform.

The 26-year-old actress and model scored her first-ever leading roles this year in JTBC romance drama Nevertheless and Netflix’s recent action series My Name.

Prior to this, Han had gained significant recognition for her role as Yeo Da-kyung in the 2020 hit melodrama The World of the Married, which currently holds the record as the highest-rated drama in Korean cable television history.
