My personal thoughts- by Jazmine K.
wow, that’s an interesting lineup indeed.
I would’ve loved for her to have been paired with Kim Joo Hun instead as the first lead but I get it. I never pictured Jang Ki Yong would star opposite her so this is surprising.
In terms of plot summary, it sounds about average thus far, but I am sure there is more to it considering the cast lineup.
Jang Ki Yong had previously played a similar character description, so I am curious as to why he picked a similar role again. Song Hye Kyo is also yet again playing an intelligent character that is on the top of her game, I previously talked about my wish to see her challenge herself a bit more because this character description also matches most of her recent projects.
This script has potential, let us see how it pans out.
