Lots of Korean dramas airing this month. I've watched the first episodes of Empire of Gold and The Sword and the Flower, waiting to watch more before I write about them
(Wow look at that expression on Taec's
face in Who Are You
!. Sud Sai Pan
seems interesting, as well as Empire of Gold
I'm really waiting for Master's Sun with So Ji Sub, Gong Hyo Jin and written by the Hong Sisters. It already sounds better then their last drama Big, so my guess is it will be better, how much better is the real question. I also don't plan to catch Who Are You, tvn's answer to Master's Sun. They already have acting dead Ok Taecyeon as the lead. Yesh! Between So Ji Sub and Ok Taecyeon? I know who I'm choosing and I've never even watched So Ji Sub before, but I have seen Taecyeon and he's not ready for leading parts, so please, please, please don't give him anymore for a long time. He tries hard, but its painful to watch.K.O. One Re-actStarring: Jiro Wang, Pets TsengAiring Date:
