The movie version ML is a scandal ridden actor who cheat on his pregnant wife with Arthdal Chronicle's actress. He looks a bit slimy, even before the scandal I already felt he's not suitable for Kou's role. Hence, I never bothered to check the movie. 


So when I saw news and trailer that they're going to make a drama, I just had to open this thread. Because I think the ML for once looks quite worthy as the bishonen from the manga. 


I did read the manga, but as it's quite long and towards the end a bit muddle, I think I never managed to finish it. Strobe Edge was in general more fun, but this also have it's own charm.
