He’s all grown up now huh? Though he has a few popular dramas through the years, my mom still refers to him as the blond chicken from It Started With A Kiss (yunno, because of his hair color and style.) The Crossing Hero will be his first self-produced drama where he gets to be the boss of his own visual outlook. That must be every actor’s dream, being able to say, this crap looks ugly on me, stylist!
The trailer looks over-the-top but could be fun. Plus, Jiro got himself TWO likable female leads. Heartbreak for the ladies?
