The latest production of Disney+, Soundtrack #1, tells the story of childhood best friends who discover their feelings upon living under the same roof. Portraying the rookie photographer Han Sun Woo is actor Park Hyung Sik, who’s playing his second role after his military discharge. Han So Hee, who made a splash with the dramas The World of the Married (2020) and Nevertheless (2021), takes the role of the leading lady. The actress will play Lee Eun-Soo, an honest and outspoken lyricist.
