My personal thoughts- by Jazmine K.
Well is this interesting… I didn’t expect that Kim Ji Won would be paired with Son Seok Gu but I’m not going to complain.
The idea behind the drama seems so interesting and I can’t wait to see how it pans out. The combination of the actors is already amazing and every single one of them always give 110% when they’re starting in a drama.
This seems to be a bit different than what I’m used to, because usually the two hottest actor in each kdrama are paired together but it looks like it’s going to be taking a different route from the traditional kdrama experience.
Son Seok Gu is so charming and criminally underrated, I am glad that he will be paired with Kim Ji Won, I hope he’s able to gain even more fans in the future due to this project.
I can’t wait to see it in 2022.
