Interesting that the show had been so adamant that... More »

This first episode of Ad Genius Lee Tae-baek, KBS’s newish Monday-Tuesday drama, ended up being a lot more engaging than I thought.

Teasers are out for KBS’s upcoming Ad Genius Lee Tae-baek, and I have to say that there’s something about that image above that just makes me Aww.
