Jeon Chung Jo is a girl, but she didn’t even change her name while pretending to be a man…? And I’m her school mate. What 3rd generation chaebol? I know that she grew up in Ganghwado. How did Nam Hyun Hee… Please run away quickly. The last I heard of her a few years ago was also that she was going to marry. I heard that they ended up calling off the marriage. She was also really into bluffing back then.
