The more character info that gets released about this show, the funnier it gets.

by | February 2, 2017 | 90 Comments
The promo for this show is so cute that I’m going to be SO disappointed if the show isn’t as advertised. But with Park Bo-young (Oh My Ghostess) as a small but mighty woman in charge and Park Hyung-shik (Hwarang) and Ji-soo (Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo) on either side of her, it would just...

Hm, I worry that this pairing is reminiscent of the Joo-won/Choi Kang-hee pairing in Level 7 Civil Servant… but they wouldn’t recreate that dynamic on purpose, right?

She’s been confirmed to join MBC’s... More »
