    Good for him. But No offence, but I find it quite weird if actor/actress can't speak local language but lands the lead role.

    Mild is a good actress. Not a fan of Korean-style acting but I hope Jung Il Woo does well.

    I watched her on Kiss and Ugly Duckling Series, do not notice her Star Circles the Moon (Janine fangirl mode). I think she's chosen for her oriental look so she could match with Il Woo... Looking forward to the drama...

    Yeah, I remember that AKP have already posted a very similar article weeks ago. I don't understand why they would re-post it again, now 🙁

    I'm gonna be honest, I don't know Mild or David. I love Jung Il Woo and thai dramas, but I'm disappointed because I was hoping it would be with some big names like yaya urassara or margie rasri.

    I think she's only recently given lead roles last year(Ugly Duckling) and this year(Kiss). If you're a lakorn fan, I think you'll realize her drama genre is not the slap/kiss types. I wouldn't mind seeing him with Kimberly Ann... Wootz~
