My Personal Thoughts
The biggest reason I am watching this drama is Kim Eun Hee, she is an amazing screenwriter and I love her projects, she’s one of the best in her field. I bet there is so much more to the story that we don’t know about, and I bet it’ll be very interesting.
Jun Ji Hyun is picky about her projects and this marks her first one in I think 3 years, Joo Ji Hoon also picks interesting projects. They’re both good actors so I am looking forward to seeing this drama. I hope she won’t be playing a quirky character again.
