finally been waiting for this thread!! hihi rolleyes.gif and im anticipating this drama since Im a Chun jung Myung fan!! It was really hard for me to accept that he'd be in this drama but I think he got interested with it since he will be playing a baseball player. Baseball is one of CJM's favorite sports! I just wish the best for him in this drama.. Hopefully no injuries anymore like he had while filming The Duo.
