The cast of tvN‘s K-Drama Little Women, loosely based on the 1868 novel of the same name by Louisa May Alcott, recently appeared on Netflix‘s The Swoon. They were given a series of scenarios from the show to debate.

During the interview, the cast was asked what they would do with ₩2.00 billion KRW (about $1.40 million USD) if their best friend left them the money before they died. In the K-Drama, a similar situation happens to Oh In Joo (Kim Go Eun).

The series depicts the story of three poor sisters who are close, their involvement in the case of 70 billion won going missing, and how they bravely face Korea’s richest family.

Most everyone agreed that it would be best to help the deceased’s family above all else. Yet, Park Ji Hu seemed to have some different thoughts. She was thinking about putting it to good use for herself.

For a while, the cast debated what to do with the money. Finally, the interviewer asked what they would do with the money if they had to spend it themselves. Immediately, Park Ji Hu had an answer!

Without hesitation, Park Ji Hu replied that she would purchase concert tickets. She explained that obtaining tickets is so difficult.

I’ll use it to get tickets. Getting tickets is so hard.

While Nam Ji Hyun was understanding, Wi Ha Joon was confused to hear this.

Park Ji Hu clarified what she meant. This time, she also added that she would purchase albums.

I’ll buy a lot of albums.

Her co-stars were curious about who might Park Ji Hu was a fan of. So, Kim Go Eun even asked, but she wasn’t telling!

Kim Go Eun: Whose albums?

Wi Ha Joon: Really?

Park Ji Hu: It’s a secret.

While Park Ji Hu wouldn’t say it at the time, she previously revealed her favorite K-Pop group to be EXO. She especially likes Suho and D.O. (also known as Do Kyung Soo), who both have connections to her co-stars. This might be exactly why she was too shy to say!

Still, her co-stars are actually K-Pop fans themselves. Kim Go Eun especially loves K-Pop! Lately, she is loving the rookie girl group NewJeans, but she is close with EXO’s SuhoBLACKPINK‘s Rosé, and Yumi’s Cells co-star GOT7‘s Jinyoung.

She seems especially close with Suho. They’ve been friends for years.

Likewise, Nam Ji Hyun has worked with EXO’s D.O. in K-Dramas and has been close ever since, although she is an EXO-L. Considering Park Ji Hu’s on-screen sisters are friends with her biases, she probably was too embarrassed to say!

EXO debuted when I was in high school. At that time, there wasn’t anyone who didn’t like them. I was a fan too. Thanks to him, my friends were greatly amazed when I started this drama. I’m an actress as well, but I don’t have many chances to meet idols, so I was fascinated that my co-star would be an EXO member. I told my friends that I’m amazed as well.

Also, Wi Ha Joon has proved his dance skills, dancing to multiple K-Pop choreographies. For example, he has danced to TWICE‘s “Cheer Up” and EXO’s “Growl.”

Actually, three cast members have danced to “Growl” by EXO!

And while the cast of Little Women might all be K-Pop fans, idols are also fans of theirs. BTS‘s RM and Jin recently revealed they are watching Little Women. Read more below.
