THESE DAYS, I make sure that I have something to look forward to at the end of a long work day. May it be a glass of wine, or a work out session, I treat myself with the tiny little things that help me to keep going.
One of my recent indulgence is watching the South Korean drama Let Me Be Your Knight. This romantic comedy, musical drama series is aired once a week in the SBS TV. It could also be seen through the popular streaming platform iQIYI.
This feel good drama tells the story of a popular idol who is suffering from sleepwalking. To discretely cure his illness, a resident doctor is tasked to live in the same house as him and the other members of his band, Luna.
This one of a kind drama also offers a star studded ensemble. To know more about the cast, read and be amazed!
