Krystal will play a woman who moves to a city to achieve her dream of becoming a singer.
"When I first read the script, I was really attracted to the story, and it especially intrigued me as the story is set in the music industry and I am a singer," she said. "I want to portray my character as a lovable but strong woman who overcomes all difficulties and realizes her dream."
The drama will air starting Sept. 17.
