    @nikki_p_28 wow well said, i enjoyed reading your msg here….u know since i saw kang ji hwan in save the last dance in a v small role in that drama, i fell for him since then! with so many kdramas i’ve watched the only second one that i saw of him lately was lie to me and this drama got me into stalking kjh again, then i looked for his old projs like be strong geum soon where my admiration for him turned into some kind of marathone KJH drama watching then if that’s not enough i watched him after than in my girlfriend is an agent & hong gil dong will be in the queue definitely….he’s an amazing actor….i also cried in that scene with ryu jin & kjh after finding out the truth about the death of his brother! i must admit i wasn’t expecting this drama to be this good but i also highly recommend this to anyone who hasn’t seen this! it’s as usual with kdramas addictive — i also enjoyed the three actors or in their role here as publishers are super funny! this drama is well made & it’s too bad it’s only 16 episodes coz i can’t seem to get enough of it!
    all the actors played & delivered well in their particular roles! i’m not sure if KJH won an award here but if not, they should have given him the best actor award! he’s good & versatile in acting be it drama or comedy! i hope he’s got another drama after lie to me coz he’s a delight to watch!

    i’m almost finished watching this drama & i really enjoyed it however i wished that cha song joo didn’t die here, she didn’t even get tried in court, it was a senseless killing but up to the end she was a hero, covering up for her loved lee so yeon! nice drama, i highly recommend this! good actors and i liked the three funny publishers too 🙂 LOL they cracks me ev.time they’re on screen! kang ji & ryu were v good in their roles as well as the others i must say!

    Very good movie in old fashion way. Main actor perfection with this movie as well as” Lie to Me ” Not sure about Coffee House, as I have not watch that movie yet. Kang is a real good actor and salute to him. On the whole the whole team were good, there were at times sad, romance, comedian but the movie is about revolution. You won’t regret watching this movie!!

    I Lyk this drama very much.I luv KJH playful character.HJM is also very cute.However I thnk the director & the producers made a mistake.isn’t it too modern for the 1930’s for example Wan’s parents house.& some of the clothing and make up.I dnt that that’s wat it was lyk in the 1930’s.
