by | November 23, 2014 | 99 Comments
For the first time, the previews for tvN’s new Monday-Tuesday drama Valid Love look cute, and dare I say, appealing even. I was scared off by the initial melodramatic conceptual teasers (which made me dislike the heroine), but this is the first peek at the show itself, and the longer trailers depict a sweet coming-of-age...
