CJ E&M’s OCN Adds Romantic Sports Drama to Lineup


CJ E&M’s channel OCN has added to its schedule the miniseries Short, set in the world of short-track speed skating.

Mixing sports and teen romance, the four-parter centers on talented rookie Kang Ho-young and famous skater Park Eun-ho, who compete on ice and try to capture the heart of Yoo Gi-na, an aspiring K-pop star. The love interest is played by Kim Do-yeon, who is a member of the popular K-pop group Weki Meki and formerly I.O.I.

Hywang Hye-jung, the head of OCN, said, “Sports series Short will portray the story of passionate teenagers running toward their goals. I am excited to introduce this special series in the Winter Olympics season.”
