Song Hye Kyo
Severely bullied in high school, Dong-eun’s abusers burned, assaulted and mocked her, but no one — not even her mother or teachers — stepped in to protect her. Since dropping out to escape it all, Dong-eun has spent years preparing for revenge. After becoming a teacher at an elementary school attended by one of her bully’s kids, she starts closing in on her assailants — intending to hit them where it will hurt the most.
Superstar actor and model Song’s career skyrocketed after starring in the series All In and Full House, and the movie My Girl and I. More recently, she starred in the popular K-drama Descendants of the Sun.
Jung Ji So
Jung Ji-so plays Dong-eun as a high school student. Jung is best known for playing flirtatious tutee Park Da-hye in Bong Joon-ho’s Oscar-winning movie Parasite.
Lee Do Hyun
Medical intern Joo Yeo-jeong meets Dong-eun when they’re both inpatients at the hospital where he works. The two get to know each other while playing Go in the park, but Dong-eun is too focused on her revenge plot to see that Yeo-jeong’s totally into her. She’s also wary of his privileged life: Yeo-jeong’s father ran the hospital where he’s now employed. Despite it all, Dong-eun and Yeo-jeong’s paths continue to intersect as she gets closer and closer to taking out her enemies.
Rising star Lee Do-hyun was put on the map after starring in the drama series Hotel del Luna. The following year, he won a Baeksang award for his performance in 18 Again (adapted from the Zac Efron movie 17 Again). More recently, Lee starred in Netflix’s apocalyptic horror series Sweet Home.
Lim Ji Yeon
As a teen, spoiled and rich Yeon-jin was the ringleader in her friend group, and the most conniving of Dong-eun’s bullies. Her well-to-do family ensured she never got in trouble for her crimes. As an adult, Yeon-jin is living her dream as a local weathercaster, is married to a powerful man and has an adorable young daughter. But Yeon-jin has no idea Dong-eun has been tracking her — and her family — for years.

Yeom Hye Ran
Kang Hyeon-nam works as a housemaid for Dong-eun’s biggest former bully, Yeon-jin. One night, she catches Dong-eun going through Yeon-jin’s trash. Instead of reporting her, Hyeon-nam offers to help Dong-eun. In exchange, Dong-eun is tasked with keeping Hyeon-nam’s abusive husband away — forever.
