    I’m really looking forward to it, seen lots of dramas with women pretending to be men but never the other way so it’s really interesting, I hope it’ll be good.

    Super excited for this drama. At first, I thought it was a woman in the poster but after I read the plot of this drama, I realised that it was indeed a man :p that too our Jang Dong-yoon.
