The upward climb begins in KBS’s Master of Trade—Inn 2015
by | September 1, 2015 | 53 Comments
The first teaser for KBS’s sageuk drama Master of Trade—Inn 2015 gave us a taste of the overall premise of the drama (merchants of Joseon!) but not its plot (…what about the merchants of Joseon?), so I’m glad that the second teaser shows a little more of the story. (A little. I’ll still take it.)... More »
