K-dramas lovers really have a hard time making a career choice. With every new show, we see our main characters pursuing some new professions. In Forecasting Love and Weather (2022) the main characters are civil officers working at the weather department, in Her Private Life (2020) the leading lady was an art curator, and Black Dog: Being a Tecaher (2019) is all about being a teacher. These dramas portray the fun and hard parts of these career options, and you would be lying if you said not even once did you want to be exactly like the main leads, doing the same job.
Just when we thought, we had seen it all, JTBC is here to woo us with the work that goes on in the beauty industry, more specifically in hair salons. Fly High Butterfly will be dealing with the bright and the dark side of being a hair salon professional. The story will follow the daily life of the main leads – how small acts of kindness can make an employee’s day, but also how some customers just vent out their frustration on such employees knowing they can’t talk back for their job’s sake.
Here’s everything we know so far about Fly High Butterfly.
