My personal thoughts- by Jass K.
This is interesting. So basically, Lee Joon is playing a baddie role? Omg, if that’s true, I am so in. Historical dramas aren’t really my thing but I don’t mind them if they’re well made. I am so excited to see how this pans out, the idea seems interesting.
2022 already has over 37 kdramas lined up, so many interesting ideas. I can’t wait to see how they all develop.
