It looks amazing and I can't wait to watch this.
I think this is a great choice of role for his comeback after all the controversies (of course there is that drama too).. The public will surely love him in this.

Looks interesting. Korean version of the "Prince and the Pauper." Also looking forward to seeing Ji Hoon back on screen. Antique Bakery and Goong are no longer satisfying after so many rewatchs.
