- Bang Joon Seo as young Yoon Hee
Ep1-10: Joseon F4. Nickname of the foursome in this show. I felt like it’s a combination of painter of the wind plus you’re beautiful. Sun Joon as dense as Jeremy, but yet character wise not so jovial. The Jovial one is Yong Ha. Yes, his smile is very pretty. Jae Shin is a combination of Shin Woo (the one who’s looking after the back of Yoon Hee and not Mi Nam in this case)& Tae Kyung(very reckless) just that Jae Shin is nicer, didn’t go about exposing Yoon Hee’s true identity-a female. The part where he discovered Yoon Hee’s true self, is so similar to Moon Guen Young character, Shin Bok in Painter of the wind. As well as the part where Yoon Hee dressed as a woman to save Sun Joon. Deje vu again. Appears that Yoon Hee father died because of …But it should be somehow related to the officials involved. Like how Shin Bok father died.
Ep11: The culprit owns up. Safe now. So Yoon Hee finally learnt abit about her father. Sun Joon and Yoon Hee went for a rendezvous unknownly to the trap of Yong Ha. Something will happen but would Sun Joon find out that Yoon Hee is a woman?
