SynopsisEdit

Today's Webtoon tells the story of On Ma-eum (Kim Se-jeong), a former judo athlete, who struggles to adapt to her new job as webtoon editor after retiring as an athlete due to an injury.

CastEdit

MainEdit

A rookie contract employee of the webtoon editorial department. She has a large appetite, a great sense of smell, and cauliflower ears typical of a fighter as a former standing member for the judo national team. On Ma-eum had to quit her athletic career when an unfortunate accident during a match tore her ankle ligament, but she begins to dream anew as a webtoon editor.
An unpredictable deputy editor with an unreadable poker face who becomes a dependable mentor for On Ma-eum. Although he can be brutally honest, he's also a supportive editor who takes good care of his colleagues. Nevertheless, outside of work, he shows a more clumsy side with his various charms and silly jokes.
A member of the sales team. He gradually grows to be more like On Ma-eum, who sincerely puts her heart and soul into everything, while looking back on himself.
