Quirky duos in dramas always turn out to be fan-favorites, and Shin Ha-ri and Jin Young-seo’s friendship in the SBS office series Business Proposal is no exception! Seol In Ah, whose cheerful energy perfectly matches lead star Kim Sejeong’s on screen, is responsible for bringing the bright and energetic Jin Young-Seo to life. Fans look forward to seeing these two peas in a pod in every episode as the chaebol heiress really ups the best friend game to a max with her dizzying personality.

Three years after her acting debut, In Ah finally landed her first lead role in the family melodrama Sunny Again Tomorrow as Kang Ha-nee. She knocked everyone’s socks off with her performance, which earned her the Best New Actress award at the 2018 KBS Drama Awards.
