This is one of my favorite dramas. Honestly, I watched a lot of Korean drama and Korean movie. I even like their music, you know, KPop. If you asked if I’m a fangirl of a Korean boyband, well yes, I’m a big fan of some boybands *and sometimes girlband too* and I am multifandom so don’t asked me to choose one of them because I will never can. *Okay that was only intermezzo :) *
