Netflix’s upcoming series Nevertheless will for sure make you swoon with the blossoming romance between two art school classmates who have different views on love and dating.
World of the Married’s Han So-hee plays Yu Na-bi, a young woman with trust issues. Love Alarm star Song Kang portrays Park Jae-eon, who thinks dating is a nuisance.
Here are five reasons why you’ll want to watch the series and most likely fall in love with it:
