Jeon JiYoon plays the role of ‘Mercy’, a girl who melts the heart of a lonely giant. She will be showcasing her vocals in ‘Wondrous Dream’ and ‘The Lost Garden’.

“BokHee (JiYoon’s character in ‘My Love by My Side’ is a feminine character too, which differs from my personality as well. But BokHee has a realistic side while for Mercy, you can say she’s a fantasy-like character,” she explained.
Regarding her thoughts on cooperating with Kim TaeWoo on this production, JiYoon expressed, “Being able to work with a big sunbaenim, I’m as nervous like it’s my first stage. He will perform well, so I’m anticipating to cooperate with him and learn some experience from him,” she said.
