He is a second generation chaebol of the global fashion company “Seline”. He is tall, good-looking, smart enough to get the highest grades in Korea, and never lost a fight. The compliment he gets most often is that he is good-looking. He knows he is a catch and arrogant. He is the type of boy you’d see in a drama.

Yeo Joo-da (Female, 18) / Lee Na-eun
Leading female character of “Secret”, the new kid at Seuri High School

She was chosen for the CSR business of the global company Seline and is admitted to Seuri High School. Right from the start, school life wasn’t easy, but she is always smiling with positive attitude.
She wanted to have a quiet school life, but a boy picks on her, asking her to pay for dry cleaning just because she accidently ran into him. The boy is Oh Nam Joo, the most popular boy at school. On the other hand, there is a boy that is like her guardian angel, showing up and helping her whenever she is in a tough situation. It’s Lee Do Hwa, the second most popular boy at school. Joo Da always courageously stands up for justice, but becomes quiet when she is misunderstood. Sae Mi gets jealous to Nam Joo and starts telling people about Nam Joo’s vulnerable point and that Joo Da spread the rumor. All she had to do was say no when Nam Joo asked if she really is behind it. However, Joo Da doesn’t say anything. No wonder Nam Joo gets the wrong idea. In a nutshell, Joo Da is the typical heroine of a drama.
Jin Mi-chae (Male, Age unknown) / Lee Tae-ri
His age, nationality, background and name are kept a secret. He isn’t even a student at the high school. He always shows up when jinmichae, sautéed dried squid, is served at the school cafeteria and thus called “Jinmichae fairy”. He is the closest character to the writer and the most secretive.
Unlike his bright expression and tone, he is pessimistic. He knows everything, but isn’t interesting in anything. He is the first to have an ego within the world of “Secret”. He knows many things as if he’s experienced other world and tells other about it.
