The star plays the frenemy-turned-love interest to the female lead, Kitty. Although he frequently teased her at first, he soon falls for our spunky heroine.

He might not have won Kitty’s heart (yet) but he’s certainly scored big time with the viewers. Internationally, he’s a huge hit, with his Instagram reaching a million followers in just four days of the series’ launch.

How is he faring with Korean fans? Firstly, they love his dynamic with co-star Gia Kim, who is actually his blood-related older sister.
