I'm rooting for all of them <3

The most who shocked me was Hwang In yeop. His popularity with just one drama raised him so much . Like he only had less than 500K follower on IG and with just some episodes, he dropped to 8M.

I'm happy for him too. He was one of my dicoveries these past months but with 18 again XD He's really a good actor. I hope he will get a noteable drama, not one like true beauty . It's was just so overrated outside SK and I still don't understand why.

I remember seeing Hwang In Yeop in Tale of Nokdu and thinking 'Wow he's good, shame he has such a small role I wonder if he'll be in more things in the future' thinking it'd take him years to blow up... boy was I wrong.
