Any news on who will play the roles of Jessica, Donna, Rachel, Scotty, and the other ladies on Harvey’s life? I don’t expect that each character will have a korean counterpart though.

hi onion head Hello! Just stopping by to say hi and to check out the latest project for Park Hyung Sik.  He was so adorable in Strong Woman, Hwarang and Heirs so I am ready to watch him again. 

 

What's up with all these American remakes?  :huh::tongue:  I don't even watch these shows here in the US.  I recognize a few names in here so please roll call me when this show gets up and running!!

For anyone who had watched the 'Suits', will you recommend that I watch it before watching the remake?

I wanted to watch now, but worried that I will unconsciously make comparison later.

Hello,  hello-red-crab-emoticon.gifI never watched it either but, would be concerned that I would make comparisons too, at this point.

no, don't watch it yet.. although i love US Suits since season 1. you can't help but compare the original to the remake..

like when i watched other kdrama remakes from US, TW and China. i ended up super disappointed with the remake.

hoping with Hyung Sik on board in this, it will make a difference.

So it becomes a trend nowadays for kdrama to adapt US popular dramas. There are already a number of the list. I don't watch Suits. And Idk what is all about. lol

 

I like the squad JDG and sweetheart PHS. This will be an action right?? Or thriller?? Cause I'm a sucker to those kind of genre, on top of that hot actors are in it. :lol::tongue:

Thanks. You're right. I won't help but comparing them later. I'll endure the waiting and enjoy this drama with a fresh mind. :grimace: Hopefully we'll be able to watch in first quarter 2018.
