This series juxtaposes the heroic anti-Japanese movement with
young romance by depicting Seoul of the 1930s, when the nation’s
independence fighters clashed with pro-Japanese traitors while
pre-modern moral values clashed with free love of the modern
time. It was an era when young people acted with extreme passion
to protect their love and things that they treasured. They
regarded love as the most powerful stimulant of a revolution, and
a loving relationship as the best revolution tactics. This drama
attempts to interpret one of the gloomiest periods in the
nation’s history in the most cheerful and vigorous way.


Kang Ji-hwan

as Seon Woo-wan: The most famous playboy in
Seoul, Woo-wan has graduated from college in Japan and is
confident that it takes him only ten minutes to seduce a Seoul
girl. One day he makes a bet that he will break his record by
seducing not some pretty and sophisticated girl but an
independence fighter. But what begins as false love later evolves
into genuine feelings. The former decadent turns into an
enthusiastic independence fighter, who experiences the magic of
love, which later evolves into patriotism.

Han Ji-min

as Na Yeo-kyung: An unrivaled, elegant and
graceful woman from Seoul, Yeo-kyung has received advanced
education but she still prioritizes pre-modern moral values. She
still wears a traditional white blouse and a black skirt. She is
drastic, strong and stubborn — to the extent that she makes
others want to challenge her. Many guys tried to approach her but
ended up in disgrace. Rumors have it that one guy was scolded by
her for a full hour. That’s why Seoul guys don’t try to approach
her anymore. They just sarcastically call her “the last woman of

Ryoo Jin

as Lee Su-hyun: Having received elite education
in Tokyo, Su-hyun has outstanding work abilities, good manners
and neat looks and is climbing up the promotion ladder fast at
the Japanese government in Korea. Everybody knows that Japanese
high-ranking official Ueda Mamoru fully trusts and relies on him.
But as talented as he is, Su-hyun also has many enemies,
including his Japanese coworkers, Korean underlings and even his
childhood friend. They are eager to get rid of him but he
wouldn’t budge, even when people point fingers at him for
betraying his home country. His face is always expressionless,
and he only smiles briefly at decisive moments. He holds the key
to all questions. Unlike Seon Woo-wan, he uses gentle techniques,
but nobody knows how to decrypt them.

Han Ko-eun

as Cha Song-ju: A famous entertainer, Song-ju has
spellbinding looks that can charm anyone. Only people of a high
social status can meet with her. One has to put their life at
stake to tame her. She is a dancing queen and a top singer. Those
who don’t have enough money or power to meet with her in person
can hear her songs on Seoul Radio or see her smiling face on
Japanese government PR posters hanging at Seoul Station. She is
the top celebrity of the era when there were no entertainers in
Joseon yet.
