In the drama, Im Soo Hyang plays the role of prosecutor Geum Seok Young. She has a strong belief that criminals should be rehabilitated through punishment instead of leniency.

“As a self-proclaimed sister who is a ‘fool for her younger sibling,’ she has ambitions to raise them well on the behalf of their parents, who died in an accident. However, the happiest moment will become her most unfortunate moment, and her life will change. I think it will be fun to watch Geum Seok Young darkening due to these incidents,” she went on.
