2PM's Wooyoung 'Don't Act' Special Clip

I...I just love the way he dances. There's such a natural flow of movements through his body.
It's nothing overly intricate, but just watching his body move so fluidly... I just love to watch him dance.

Previews for "Return"

SBS's new drama Return, about a high society murder scandal, stars Go Hyun-jung as a lawyer who’s hired to defend one of four main suspects in a murder case, and judging from the show’s teasers, every single one of them looks guilty.

Go Hyun-jung stars as a defense attorney who comes from humble beginnings, and spent a portion of her career as a judge. But it’s through hosting a legal television show that she earns a reputation as a star attorney, and gets hired to defend the prime suspect in a high society murder case. Lee Jin-wook plays a hotheaded police detective who comes at the case sideways, through a drug investigation that lands him in the middle of a complex murder trial.

The four main suspects are a group of wealthy friends who have known each other since childhood. Among them, chaebol heir Park Ki-woong is the prime suspect, and his wife Jung Eun-chae is the one who hires Go Hyun-jung to defend her husband. The two women went to law school together and will work together to unravel the mystery. The other three friends (and suspects) will be played by Shin Sung-rok, Bong Tae-kyu, and Yoon Jong-hoon.

sorry for turning this into an impromptu counselling session the tmi lol. just hoped it could maybe give some of you the peace it gave me.
