My personal thoughts- written by Jazmine K.
O.M.G. The screenwriter behind “Search: WWW” is writing a new drama, this is gonna be EPIC.
If you guys don’t know, “Search: WWW” is one of my fav kdramas in recent memory. It was so well written and well-acted, I trust this drama will not be as cliché as the regular romance youth dramas are.
Am I the only one who noticed how Nam Joo Hyuk is straying away as much as he can from playing the role of the rich guy? I will say this, I LOVE THAT. He’s taking on more realistic grounded roles which I like more. The combination between Nam Joo Hyuk and Kim Tae Ri is bound to be amazing.
Kim Tae Ri is very careful with her drama picks so I believe she picked this one after serious consideration.
I am excited about this drama. 2022 is looking good already.
