My Note: the positive thing to note in the news article is that the drama is named after the female lead .....played by Shinhye. This really makes me optimistic in regards to her character that is central to the story so has to be a powerful and strong one........the type I wanted.
Second positive thing to note is that they wanted only her to play this role which means that the writer had her in mind to best suit it. Since, the writer did an excellent job in IHYV .......I am really starting to feel better and a little relieved too.
