My personal thoughts- written by Jass K.
Man, I missed Lee Joon Gi so much 🙁 at last, he’s coming back but isn’t April a bit too far?
The idea seems nice, its not the craziest thing ever or unheard of because I’ve seen similar plots, but I do expect it to be interesting. Lee Joon Gi picks mostly interesting projects so it’ll be fun to see him in this role, I also expect to see abs since his character is skilled in martial arts.
I’ve been enjoying Kim Ji Eun a lot in “the Veil,” she’s a scene-stealer. I remember her from a DAY6 music video a couple of years ago, I am so proud of her, she’s come a far way and now she’ll be leading her own drama. Her character description is too basic thus far, I hope the character turns out to be interesting.
From fans comments on social media, many have said the webtoon was really nice, I really hope this turns out well. I am excited.
