I’m so proud of my amazing team Yulin, A-Major, and BH Entertainment and it’s a thrill to finally share this exciting news."

While producer Mary Lee added, "Maurene found a way to tap into the fun world of K-dramas through the perspective of a girl who learns that life is something that you can’t control, and Yulin’s voice was perfect for the adaptation."
