The Hi Cookie plot

Hi Cookie (aka 하이쿠키 in Korean) reportedly tells the story of what happens to a group of high school students at an elite school when homemade cookies are brought to school and eaten by several students.

Those cookies have the ability to make a person’s wish come true with just one bite, plunging the school and its students into turmoil.

Previous to her casting in Hi Cookie, the actress had a supporting role in last year’s Forecasting Love and Weather as well as a main role in the 2021 film Good Deal.

She has also had a support role in Mr. Queen and a guest spot in Hospital Playlist.

Chae Seo Eun’s role in High Cookie is her first of 2023.

The drama reportedly premieres in October via U+ Mobile TV.
