Yoo Ah-in, who captivated women's hearts with the coexistence of charisma and romance, and established herself as Korea's leading screen actress in her 20s along with Song Joong-ki and Kim Soo-hyun, returns to Busan's 'manly man' through her comeback after two years. Yoo Ah-in, who has completely transformed into a rough but deep Busan man, shows a more sympathetic and realistic performance through the character 'Kang-cheol', who is closest to her actual age. Yoo Ah-in, who challenged not only perfect Busan dialect acting, but also wire action, shooting action, and car chasing, for the first time in her life, will fill the screen with masculine charm that goes beyond the strong emotional acting that leads the drama and dynamic action acting. In particular, Yoo Ah-in's emotional acting and action in the pre-monitor preview recorded high satisfaction with unanimous praise and praise from the audience, collecting topics. In this way, Yoo Ah-in will break away from the image of a boy and show remarkable growth and potential as an actor through <Kang-cheol-i>, solidifying his position as a representative male actor in Chungmuro.

Yoo Ah-in, who has been working with the best actresses in Korea, met with special partner Kim Hae-sook in this work. Kim Hae-sook and Yoo Ah-in, who play the role of mother 'Soon-i', have an unrivaled presence, and the breathing of the two children is a viewing point unique to <Kang-cheol-i> that cannot be missed. The reversal charm of 'Soon-i' Kim Hae-sook, who is naive despite all kinds of illness, and Yoo Ah-in, who is infinitely warm in front of such a mother, make the best ensemble by adding the fresh charm of the character and the acting skills of the two actors. In addition, Yoo Ah-in and Kim Hae-sook, who show a reversed side of the existing mother-child relationship through the appearance of a child taking care of their parents, will give a deep impression that surpasses the fever of father and mother love in the film industry in the first half of 2013. From the perfect breathing with Kim Hae-sook, who returned from a national mother to a reversal mother, Yoo Ah-in's new appearance, which exudes the vivid charm of youth in her twenties, will become a strong central axis of <Gangcheoli> and will touch the hearts of viewers.
