Seo Hyun Jin, Kim Dong Wook, Yoon Park, and Nam Gyu Ri Confirmed for tvN Drama You are My Spring

It’s hard to synthesize so many different concepts and how it will work in one drama but I’ve learned not to guess and wait to see what the end product looks like. Love this cast to bits and the production team is solid with the PD of The King: Eternal Monarch, Search: WWW, and Mr. Sunshine with the screenwriter of Bubblegum. You are My Spring is scheduled to air in the first half of 2021.
