In the highly anticipated Korean remake Today’s Webtoon, Kim Se-jeong will take on the lead role of On Ma-eum, a rookie employee in the webtoon editorial department.

Like in the Japanese version, On Ma-eum has to give up her dreams of being an athlete after sustaining an injury, and she resolves to start her life afresh.

She is convinced to join the company after coincidentally delivering food to the webtoon editorial department, and her life takes a turn for the better.
