They wrapped up filming and post-production just in time for Choi Tae-joon’s military enlistment in August 2019.

However, it was later reported that the drama was in danger of being scrapped due to difficulties in finding a broadcast station in Korea to air the drama, despite already having the rights of the drama sold to more than 160 countries. 

But the wait is over – we’ll be seeing this drama air at the end of this month.

Choi Tae-joon plays Hoo Joon, a top tier K-pop star known for his clean image. But one day, things go downhill. 

Joon was spotted dumping his ex in a club and bumps into Lee Geun-young (Choi Sooyoung), who accidentally snaps a picture of him. In an effort to protect his image, Hoo Joon ruins Geun-young’s career, and that’s how she became his anti-fan. 

Somehow, the two get entangled in a chain of events, and they end up living together under the same roof.

Back in the day, JJ (Chansung) and Oh In-hyung (Han Ji-an) trained together with Joon. The trio fell out eventually due to conflicts between each other – which we’ll find out more about in the drama – and went their own ways to pursue their dreams. 

The rich kid JJ is now a CEO of an entertainment agency, and In-hyung is a rising actress.
