The cast is awesome ... With every new actor I want to watch a drama more and more.
True, I'm worried about the fact that they are taking an idol for a drama. Oh, these Koreans can just take it and refuse to watch it because of this ...
But I really hope that this does not happen.
I look forward to teasers!:w00t:
