@badsmuler,  I will watch this drama if it has English subs, and if it is as good as I am hoping it will be....

I personally do not want to send PM to him... I am sure he had seen the tags....

I ended up asking JTBC on their YT channel under the teaser, where can we watch it with English subs....

Maybe you and @KaoW, and others who are interested can do the same...  In the very least - maybe JTBC will bring it to YT?

If you have a FB account, lets write on the walls of Viki and DramaFever asking them to bring us this drama...
