I’m interested in the premise despite it being used before. I’m not too sure it’ll get good ratings since it’ll be up against Faith, but I’m sure it’ll have better ratings than it’s predecessors Big and Love Rain. This premieres in KBS on August 6
Upcoming KBS drama Haeundae Lovers, named for that famous stretch of city-on-beach in Busan, is the next project from writer Hwang Eun-kyung, of City Hunter and New Heart.
