Gu Family Book

Gu Family Book – a good mystical Korean drama that I recently watched. I like Choi Jin Hyuk and Lee Yeon Hee; Lee Seung Ki and Suzy! I love the drama so much. No more rich man poor woman, or rich woman poor man. The sceneries are so beautiful, the effect is quite good and natural. I love the drama OST too. The songs are so touching and fit the drama perfectly. They make me cry when I listen to it – very sad, I am so sad.
