Are you excited for “Annarasumanara”?
My personal thoughts- written by Jass K.
Wow, such a stellar cast.
I recently finished watching “Beyond Evil,” Choi Sung Eun is definitely a rising talent and a star in the making. The idea behind the webtoon seems great. I haven’t read it but from what I’ve learned thus far, I am loving it.
So it appears to me that Ji Chang Wook will play more of an older role as a mentor to the kids, this means the love line will probably not include him since we’re talking about high school kids.
On paper, this is probably the most interesting project Ji Chang Wook has picked in a while. I don’t want to build expectations but since this drama will likely air on Netflix, it means the budget will be huge and they will have more liberty with the source material. I can’t help but have high expectations.
Ji Chang Wook has a musical background, I love musicals. It’ll be great to see him sing. Hwang In Yeop has a good voice too, I’ve heard his OST. I am super excited to see him opposite those two actors.
Netflix is really killing it!
