(Kim Kyu-tae PD) / Han Seung-yeon Play as Han Soo-jin : Hostages: A warmhearted woman who is not good at confrontation or conflicts but has a strong sense of duty in that situation. She is also awkward at times, but not in front of Yoon Mi-seon. Jeong Kwang-il Play as Choi Jae-cheol : Hostages: The tactician of Team One who gives clear instructions to his teammates even when in high pressure situations.
Other Cast : Lim Ji-yeon , Lim Hyeong-guk & Lee Si-woo as Ann
All of them play prison inmates, which is quite fitting since they are actually prisoners in real life for their part in the influence peddling scandal. Incidentally, Hyeong-guk & Si-woo have served more time than Ji-yeon. The only one who hasn’t even been charged with a crime yet is Lee Yoon-seok, who plays Woo Young. So I guess they all get to feel pretty smug that they’re getting to run amok on a TV show while Yoon-seok is stuck in house arrest…since he’s still awaiting indictment on a string of charges ranging from bribery to tax evasion (not exactly guilt by association).
