Jo Seung-woo drops Pied Piper, Shin Ha-kyun signs on
by | December 14, 2015 | 27 Comments
Saaaaad. Don’t get me wrong, I like Shin Ha-kyun (Mr. Back). But I love Jo Seung-woo (God’s Gift—14 Days), which is why I’m sad to hear that he ended up turning down the offer to headline tvN’s Pied Piper. Just don’t stay away from TV for too long, okay? The new series from the PD-writer... More »
