production. It goes on air after being completely shot. Shooting for the drama was completed in April.

We hope to give back to the fans of ‘Full House’ both in Japan and South Korea by putting in effort to do our best work.”

The first “Full House” was a hit 2004 drama starring Rain and Song Hye Gyo, and an adaptation of the manhwa by Won Soo Yeon.
