What do you think of this?
My Personal Thoughts
I am excited about this although I am not a fan of historical dramas much, but since it’s about parallel worlds I am cool.
I have been waiting for news of writer Kim Eun Sook next leading man and I kinda suspected she’d pick someone else; I was thinking Park Bo Gum or Jung Hae In. I am surprised to learn about this.
The idea seems interesting and I like that she puts production quality first, it seems that it’ll be blockbuster judging from what I read above. I also like that she is challenging herself with each production and always scales up, I can’t wait to see how this turns out to be.
Now we shall wait for news of the leading lady, I am super curious to find out whom the lucky lady will be.
