Kim Da Mi, who won the title of 'Best New Actress' with the movie 'The Witch', has recently become a next-generation actress, receiving much love from the drama 'Itaewon Class'.

The drama 'Us That Year', which is drawing much attention just by its casting, is the first original 16-part drama to be presented by Studio N and will be produced in the 2nd half of this year.
