Most of all, through this drama, I wanted to tell a youthful story about growing and growing up. “
Nam Joo Hyuk added that he believed the drama was relevant to everyone’s life, not just aspiring entrepreneurs or people who work in tech. “I think we all not just start-ups, we create new start-ups all the time as we face new challenges in our lives,” he said. “I work hard to portray the freshness of young people starting over, in addition to the mixed feelings of fear and fear.”

Other people may see Nam Do San as immature or not as someone who makes no effort to improve their life. But he’s not someone who just talks about working hard and you will see him chasing his dreams in drama. “
