  1. I’ve been enjoying City Hunter a lot! I love the action! Also, I want to check out Myung Wol the Spy! It seems pretty comical from what most people watching are saying!

  2. city hunter is so intense i love it<3. yeah I agree with myung wol the spy being funny. I have watched two episodes and it just made me laugh all the way through. Its enjoyable ^^

  3. True, Myung Wol has been great so far. Not only is it funny but the writers have developed the main characters well. I kind of liked heartstrings too – don’t know why it didn’t do well in Korea. My favourite part of it was the main actors. I still have to watch city hunter though. Next stop :)

  4. heartstrings is so good I love it <3
