Makjang Queen Screenwriter Im Sung Han’s New Drama Marriage Lyrics and Divorce Music is the Highest Premiere Ratings for TV Chosun Ever at 5.708%

Retired early is basically not retired, anytime someone who is not true retirement age in entertainment announces a retirement I take it with a grain of salt. Such is the case with makjang queen screenwriter Im Sung Han, herself a famous name to drama audiences thanks to her string of hits in the weekend drama and daily category with Miss Mermaid, The Jewel Family, New Tales of Gisaeng, and Princess Aurora.
