Requirements

LOOKING FOR LEADING ACTRESS!!!

Key (28-30, Chinese female, fluent in Mandarin)
seemingly clumsily playing the role of an “adult” every day, while being a highly sensitive individual with many inner thoughts. She’s like a sturdy calf, still excitedly exploring the world and currently in the growth stage.

Yun (28-30, Chinese female, fluent in Mandarin)
Key’s former friend. A realist adult who tends to become more conservative as she grows older. Practical and reserved, she pursues perfection. Despite her strong personality, she has a crying side and is someone who quietly cries and then continues forward.

239 (16-18, Chinese female, fluent in Mandarin)
a high school girl with a playful nature and a sharp tongue typical of that age. Quick-witted and clever, she’s like a free little bird.

740 (16-18, Chinese female, fluent in Mandarin)
calm and systematic, she takes care of her friends like an adult. Unlike the lively little bird, she’s more like a soft tree branch.
