My personal thoughts- by Jazmine K.
wow, that’s a nice lineup!
I’ve been missing Park Hyung Sik and Han Hyo Joo for a while now.
The story sounds interesting and it kinda reminds me of “Sweet Home.” I am guessing the budget for the drama will be massive since it won’t be easy to produce such an idea without a huge budget.
Han Hyo Joo has been mostly focusing on movies so I am guessing if she picked this drama there must be something unique and interesting about it.
This will also mark Park Hyung Sik’s first role since his military discharge, he’s taken his time to pick a project unlike other actors who were discharged around the same time as him so I am also guessing he was carefully considering his next step.
I really like Jo Woo Jin, he’s a terrific actor. I can’t wait to see the drama.
