Love the cast but for me when it comes to any drama popular or not I have to watch at least 4 episodes to decide if it good or not. Some drama have so much hype when the begin and just drag towards the end and other like penthouse 1 start of low and end up become popular. In the end it personal choice. I loved Ju ji hoon in hyena (highly recommend)

They did everything right to make Jirisan a success by hiring the best producers, directors, actors. They sealed the deal when they hired Kim Seokjin to sing the main theme song for the drama‼️ #JinOSTSoon #JinOST #JinOSTisComing
