Lee Jeong-ha rose to fame through Disney+’s ‘Moving’ and is considered a rising star. Meeting her first fixed variety show, fans are eager to see what kind of performance she will deliver. Since her debut in 2017, Lee Jeong-ha has gained recognition through web dramas, ‘Shinibsagwan Guhaeryung,’ ‘Run On,’ ‘Knowing But,’ and more. With the successful lead role in the 50 billion won blockbuster drama ‘Moving,’ she is an astonishing newcomer. Therefore, there is growing interest in how she will leave her mark on the variety show alongside Yoo Jae-suk and Cha Tae-hyun.
‘Apartment 404’ has already confirmed Yoo Jae-suk and Cha Tae-hyun as cast members. With the addition of Jennie and Lee Jeong-ha, viewers are curious about the synergy they will create.
