Seon Woo got a detention, but Jang Il requested the teacher to help Seon Woo studying. Jang Il tried so hard to make Seon Woo study. And in return, Seon Woo taught Jang Il some fighting techniques.

This spring drama war is really driving me crazy. It’s a dilemma which channel should I turn on Wednesday and Thursday night, 9.55 pm (Seoul time). I mean, choosing between Ha Ji Won + Lee Seung Gi and Uhm Tae Woong?? It’s a very difficult choice. Although I decided to watch live “The King 2Hearts”, I can’t let myself leaving Uhm Tae Woong’s drama behind. So here I am trying my best to cover both dramas.

    And they are both good! I have not seen a lot with Uhm Tae Woong except for Devil but Lee Jun Hyuk, I have seen a lot and I’m watching for him. Who cares if he is a bad/misunderstood guy! After the first 2 episodes, it makes sense.
