I am so excited right now!
I have a weird crush on actor Son Seok Gu, I saw him in “Mother” and just loved the energy he brings out, it will be so nice to see him in another kdrama taking on the second leading role. I also saw him in “Suits” he made a memorable appearance. His English is so sexy.
Cha Tae Hyun is always cheerful and bright, it will be nice to see him take on such a different role. I am super excited about the cast, this is going to be AMAZING!
