The production team of the TVING series “Dreaming of a Freaking Fairytale” (Also known as: I Openly Dream of Cinderella) unveiled character posters brimming with personality on the 22nd. The posters hint at a fantastical romance featuring four distinct characters, each with their own aspirations and quirks.

“Dreaming of a Freaking Fairytale” is a romantic comedy about a woman who decides to become a Cinderella after hitting a wall in reality, and a chaebol prince who does not believe in love. It will tell the story of four characters with different goals like a fairy tale, giving viewers deep sympathy and vicarious satisfaction.

Shim Jae Rim: The Ambitious New Cinderella

The poster featuring Shim Jae Rim (played by Pyo Ye Jin) immediately captures attention. Shim Jae Rim embodies a new concept of Cinderella, one who declares, “If I can’t succeed on my own, I’ll just get on a white horse myself!”  Clutching a glass slipper, a symbol straight out of the classic fairytale, Shim Jae Rim radiates determination. Viewers can’t help but wonder if she’ll be able to rewrite her destiny.

Moon Cha Min: The Uninterested Chaebol Heir

Juxtaposed with Shim Jae Rim’s ambition is Moon Cha Min (played by Lee Jun Young), the unconventional “chaebol on a white horse.” Moon Cha Min, an heir to a vast fortune, embodies the opposite of ambition.  His motto? “I just need to live forever like this for my life to be perfect.”  This cynical outlook sets the stage for an intriguing contrast with Shim Jae Rim.  Will Moon Cha Min’s commitment to a life of leisure and his disbelief in love be challenged?

Baek Do Hong: A Mysterious Figure

The character poster for film director Baek Do Hong (played by Kim Hyun Jin) adds a layer of mystery to the narrative. Baek Do Hong, holding a single rose and sporting a gentle smile, utters the cryptic line, “Don’t talk about him in front of me,” hinting at a hidden complexity in his relationship with someone else.

Ban Dan Ah: The Luxurious Chaebol Heiress

Rounding out the quartet is Ban Dan Ah (played by Song Ji Woo), whose charm brings a touch of humor.  Ban Da-ah, the epitome of luxury, seems to be reciting a magic spell as she proclaims, “Da-ah, you have to live gracefully and elegantly,” while rattling off a list of high-end brands (Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Burberry, Prada.)  Her poster piques viewers’ curiosity about her story, a tale of a third-generation chaebol yearning for a life of refined elegance.
