Why would we need a younger version when the two actors are only 5 years apart? -.- all they have to do is  change the hairstyle and makeup, thats' all!

An incredibly likable and talented actress gets her first, much deserved, lead role and people gush and coo about the "idol stars" added as icing. It's not that I haven't enjoyed many of these pretty youngsters joining the fray, but I'm just wondering: Are there any actual drama fans out there?

Oooooh Sung Hoon!  Now I definitely have to watch.  Loved him in "New Tales of a Gisaeng" and loving him as the long white haired flute playing henchman in "Faith" now that I'm finally watching it.  It's just great to see him working again because he all but disappeared after NTOAG.  Just wondered how someone who looks that good and did that well in their debut role (and a lead role at that) not have a follow up drama for so long.  Im Soo Hyang (the female lead) was everywhere after NTOAG, even in a T-ara MV but he was just gone.  Now I can actually keep watching this drama after Seohyun's eps are done.  Really wish Seohyun the best of luck with her acting debut.

Finally! :) 

I keep wanting to know who the actual leads were. 

This is interesting though, consider how these two aren't new to the acting scene, but this will actually be their first at being main leads. 

The male lead is quite handsome though...


Interesting fact about Lee Won Geun, if you didn't know. He was in Moon Embraces The Sun...and he and Seohyun  are the same age. Just one day a part too..he's one day older~
