The author is famous and the staffs are people whom we have worked with making music videos, this is a good opportunity so we did it together.”

This representative also said “The burden is minimal since they film one scene for each episode. This will be a stepping stone for KyuJong’s future acting activities.”

He added “He will learn step by step and get familiar with the actual scene of filming, and will get into acting from next year onwards. There will be an opportunity for KyuJong to appear in the Korea-China-Japan drama that Kim HyungJoon appears in.”

Meanwhile in ‘SETI’, MinJoo is a anti (negative/passive) member in club Setian, where activities with the club getting longer, she felt skeptical about her hobby and work without any outcome. However her boyfriend HoSik is as obsessed with SETI as before and she felt displeased that their conversations were only concerning SETI. In addition, the appearance of Professor Park increases HoSik’s curiosity about SETI, thus friction increases. However when MiJoo witnessed HoSik’s actual life, she was impressed by it and created a change in their relationship.
