girlfriday: So how was your week? javabeans: Pretty much the same as any other week, except a little more painful since I’m sick.

javabeans: Wow, Big Man hasn’t even aired yet and already KBS has confirmed the schedule for its successor drama to take over in mid-June, which is titled Trot Lovers. Er, Trot Couple?
