Seriously, there's a lot to love about this drama and if you haven't watched it yet, our honest review might just persuade you.

On the other hand, if you're already a big fan of the series like us, we know you're wondering what the cast members are up to now!

Jung Kyung Ho appeared in many K-dramas after 2017, including When The Devil Calls Your Name, where he played the role of a composer who sold his soul to the devil in exchange for success. The actor's most memorable role recently would definitely be as the straightforward cardiothoracic surgeon Kim Jun Wan in Hospital Playlist. (We can't wait for season two!)

We swear—you'll be SO surprised when you watch Lee Kyu Hyung as Gang Hwa in the 2020 drama Hi Bye, Mama! He plays the role of the lead female character's husband, who's totally not chaotic like Han Yang (we actually found it hard to take him seriously here!). Also last year, Kyu Hyung was featured in the Shin Min Ah-led mystery thriller movie, Diva as a swimming coach. What a versatile actor!
