Check Out the Event is an upcoming romance drama starring Girl's Day's Minah and Kwon Hwa Woon.


Ha Song Yi (Minah) and Park Do Kyum (Kwon Hwa Woon) are ex-lovers who go on a couples trip to Jeju Island, which they won in a lottery they took part in prior to their breakup. Do Kyum is the leader and vocalist of an indie band who has a romantic side to him despite his feisty exterior. Song Yi works as a botanical garden coordinator who believes that people are capable of betrayal, but not plants. She finds herself struggling after breaking up with Do Kyum, and yet has to put on a facade to go on the trip with him. There, a love triangle develops when Seo Ji Gang (Ahn Woo Yeon), a travel guide starts developing feelings for Song Yi.

It's not a K-drama if there's no second male lead to vie for the female lead's love and attention!

#4 Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha (28 August)
