You guys surely already know this drama, I think. Because it is so popular and probably will be the next national drama. I love the first episode ❤ it’s so heart-touching, and the plot goes so fast. The second episode makes me afraid to watch it, because it is so tragic :(.
The main stars of this drama of course are Lee Seung Gi and Suzy, and the will appear on the third episode. Yeay! It is tomorrow :). Lee Seung Gi is so handsome with his long hair haha, and Suzy, well she is so beautiful even acts and dresses like a man. In this story, she is a martial master!
Ah ya, the another reason why you should watch this drama is the soundtrack! The lyrics are in english, sung by Yisabel. A ballad song, like the genre of the drama : mellow. I rarely find a soundtrack in english lyrics, so I’m quite surprised with this.
