"Lingerie Girls' Generation" cast starts with Cosmic Girls' Bona ("The Best Hit"), who plays the main lead, Lee Jung Hee, KBS described her as someone who wants to be pretty, smart and popular with boys, but is not. The latest teaser for the drama reveals Jung Hee's bright character and her group of friends. She has an unrequited first love for Seon Jin, the most popular guy in Daegu played by actor Yeo Hoe Hyun ("Solomon's Perjury"). Meanwhile, Seo Young Joo ("Solomon's Perjury") plays the character of Bae Dong Moon who is in love with Jung Hee. Min Do Hee ("Mirror of the Witch", "Reply 1994") plays Shim Ae Sook, a school bully, and a gang leader.
Their world was disturbed when Park Hye Joo played by Chae Seo Jin ("My Brilliant Life") arrives as a transfer student from Seoul. She becomes "the first love of the many" according to Dramabeans and becomes an automatic rival of Jung Hee. CN Blue's Lee Jong Hyun ("My Only Love Song", "Orange Marmalade") completes the lead characters who portrays the character of Joo Yung Choon, a country bum and a pharmacy part-timer who is cold on the outside but is actually warm hearted.
