Angel Eyes Starts Filming Childhood Portion and Confirms Cast of Lee Sang Yoon, Gu Hye Sun, and Kim Ji Suk

SBS weekends have been pretty lackluster for me for a long time. The last weekend drama I enjoyed (somewhat) was Cheongdamdong Alice. The ones after that like Birth Secret, Goddess of Marriage, and Thrice Married Woman have all been singularly … Continue reading
