by | May 4, 2015 | 85 Comments
I really love Kim So-hyun in this. I’m already a fan of the School franchise for its super earnest stories about friendship and teen angst, but she grounds everything with an emotional center that completely sucks me in. What a great project for her to spread her wings in. To... More »

Falling for Innocence: Episode 9
by | May 3, 2015 | 95 Comments
