My personal thoughts- written by Jass K.
Such a stellar cast.
I generally enjoy webtoon adaptations and this promises to be a good one. I am excited.
Go Hyun Jung makes interesting choices but I am puzzled by this one.
The BJ career usually is done by the younger crowd too as far as I am aware. If anyone has read the webtoon, can you please tell me if the main character was around that age or not [50 years old]?
I am not saying Go Hyun Jung is too old to play such characters either, but as someone who has been a fan, this choice of hers surprised me a bit. I think she’s beautiful but she looks her age. I wonder how the drama will be adapted.
I like Ahn Jae Hong, he’s super talented and I am glad he’s leading this drama. I am also happy to see Yeom Hye Ran gaining so much attention, she’s truly a gem and has always been one but only recently received some attention from the younger audience.
