You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin: Episode 12
by | April 18, 2013 | 86 Comments
It’s an episode with some happy advancements for some, and life-altering realizations for others.

You have a hero who spends his days playing Hong Gil-dong Jr. in the streets, a no-nonsense heroine with a mighty sword, and a story world filled with myths and magic that’s just barely been tapped.
