This actor is very very good. I am shocked and amazed by how well he plays both characters, how he breathes life into two opposite characters. I wonder why I never saw him in a drama before. But I am happy that I finally know his name.
I wish him all the success, I am happy he’s doing well and receiving love and hope that he scores better roles in the future.
