My Sunshine Episodes 1-15

My Sunshine cdrama cast

Since I discovered My Sunshine Director’s Cut, I had to dive into the actual entire drama itself as too much went unexplained in the four episode version of the drama. I wish I could say that my curiosity was completely satisfied by watching the full drama, but what I most wanted explain hasn’t really been explained and I sincerely doubt

Cdrama Review: My Sunshine Director’s Cut

My Sunshine cdrama cast

The only thing I’ve ever watched director’s cuts of is movies. I don’t necessarily like the director’s cut any better than the original as there usually isn’t anything too different with certain aspects.

I tried to find a publication date, but the only thing

To Be Continued poster

Just like Fantagio launched their acting idol group 5urprise with the drama After School: Lucky or Not, they are launching baby idol group Astro with the drama To Be Continued. And when I say babies, I mean babies. The maknae of the group was actually born in 2000! He’s only 15. It just seems so crazy to have millennial babies
