If you have any questions about this amazing cast, do not hesitate to leave a comment below. Unlike my prior cast listings I did not tell you about the actor.. But told you all about the character that they play. If you like this and want me to fill out other casts like this, let me know. Also if you hate it.... let me know too. 


  1. I actually like you to include info on the actors as well.
    I liked Surplus Princess. Too bad it was canceled before being able to end its story properly.
    Kim Seul-gi is a great character actress. Loved her in Flower Boy Next Door. She is good at playing quirky characters.

    1. Thanks, I will try and do both a character synopsis and an actor background next time. I was so pumped when I saw Kim Seul-gi... she cracks me up. This drama was so funny. I was super bummed out when they cut it short.
