ok so I will just watch for LBY sake.. I dont like the male leads at all...too boring.... have to tolerate them I guess

I dont know about the writer ... women in the sun was watchable but too ordinary...the director is good though...

Lee Bo Young ... Lee Joon Hyuk ADDED TO THE CAST

OMG!!! It's Lee Hyun Woo!!. I will be tuning to watch him. He became so big now. Can't wait. Is there going to be heroine in the teen days? I'm hoping they could et Nam Ji Hyun. Other actress is ok too.

btw, Uhm Tae Woong is in this is cool. Remembering his days in Resurrection . It was so good! but I don't know if the rating will be good as it will be airing the same as King 2 hearts and rooftop prince which both had young actors. Hope it will be good.

Gotta agree with you for the actors. Uhm Tae Woong is the more experiences one. I will be tuning for all of the show because I love all the actors.

But i'm sure this show will be the heaviest among the three. Just look at the scriptwriter.

I'm hoping Pandrama will faster the promotion of this drama because I also wanted to know who is gonna be the leading lady not just rumours but a real deal. Just confirm it please. I know Pandrama are busy with their other drama wich is The moon embraces sun. but i hope they could focus on this too. There are too small news for this drama.

where is the promotion .. seems KBS think it wont be able to compete anyway so they dont want to bother. seriously we only have 3 weeks for premier and there is no info whatsoever ...I only know that the kids will have about 4 episodes and then we will see the adults.. that LJH will be a famous Prosecutor and in order to get higher will bteray his buddy and that they will both be in love with LBY

as far as I am concerned acting comes first I want to watch good acting and for me.. good sincere acting can save moderate writing but bad acting can not save the best scripts

I think the kdrama scene is unfair cause the really talented ones are over shadowed by ppl who get the best ratings and those with the biggest fanbase.. like in this case Uhm Tae-woong is the best actor of the three without a doubt yet believe or not .. when I read the comments about him most of them are negative regarding his presence in 1n2d!!! while the other two loads of praise and I dont know for what..

and I really dont think there is a young version of the female lead... I think they will meet as adults.. so the young version story is just the relationship between the two boys I guess

^exactly... there's still no news regarding who the 1st female lead is???

I'm crossing my fingers on PSY whom I adored dearly in Coffee House!!!

ps: though i read in 1 chinese forum tat psy is likely to be e 2nd female lead....

I don't know but by looking from the photoshoot it looks like LeeBoyoung is coupled with Uhm Force. Maybe because news about her character are not many that's why DB thought she is the second lead. They should released the poster fast maybe we can sense who the real lead actress.

Lim Jeong-Eun is relatively new for me actually. Have'nt watch Joseon X Files. I heard her acting is charismatic and I heard she's the villain in here. I think her character will be coupled with Uhm Force then leave him for Lee Jinhyuk. That's when Uhm Force find Lee Boyoung.

And I'm thankful Park Siyeon is not doing this because I think playing a villain character is quite hard for her because I only liked her when she's playing in Coffee House but not throughly. Her other characters in other drama are bland I think.

Besides I think this story is more focused on the two men rather then the girls. Even the story is Equator MEN.

Either way we are only going to wait for the drama to premier so we can see who is who then.
