My personal thoughts- written by Jass K.
What an amazing pairing, wow! A dream pair is finally happening and I can’t wait to see them together on the same screen.
I am a bit skeptical about the chaebol part but I trust that both actors made a good decision after reading the script. I am not the biggest fan of screenwriter Park Ji Eun’s works as I feel they rely heavily on overly used kdrama romance tropes as a substitute for detailed writing so we shall see. I love director Kim Hee Won, everything she’s directed was marvelous, and “Little Women” was a masterpiece in terms of directing.
