    Sucks... I don't watch Thai dramas nor will I ever. Their language just reminds me so much of duck's quacking. I couldn't even last 10 seconds until I got annoyed when watching a trailer, what more if I watch a whole Thai drama?

    I know what you mean !! I am a huge fan of Full House and I at first I kinda of obliged my self to watch the thai edition and it was super weird!! I am so used to Korean/Japanese/ Chinese dramas that I felt that I was hearing a foreign language when I was watching the thai version but it gets a little familiar after a while So try to give this one a chance !!!!

    I sadly kind of agree with the other comments. Jung Il Woo is one of my fav Korean actors, it's wonderful that he can expand his popularity to other countries but he really needs another hit Korean drama because his last one was "Moon Embracing the Sun" and he was the second lead there. He has to do the military service soon, so I'm crossing my fingers for "Cinderella and Four Knights." Since it's a TvN drama I have hopes but who knows...

    I love him and 2pm but let's be honest here, he isn't even close to Il Woo in terms of acting. Actually, other 2pm members like Chansung, Junho or taec are wayyyyyy better actors.

    Maybe more than Il Woo LOL it always amaze me how they do a drama with a male lead that can't speak the language. He is a great actor so ^^

    gosh... Jung il woo is such good actor, but haven't had any projects recently for korea, it may be a great title to be the first korean to land a lead role in thailand but still, it is different when it is a Kdrama.
