1. [+862, -28] The plot is totally something the Japanese would like. It's sweet but still full of yearning and of course the male lead is handsome and the female lead is beautiful. It's probably perfectly to their tastes.
2. [+847, -34] Maybe Song Joong Ki will surpass Bae Yong Joon ♡
3. [+711, -36] When something's good, all eyes are the same..
4. [+42, -6] Even 2 billion won isn't enough
5. [+38, -2] I think Jin Goo will be more popular in Japan, he has that Japanese actor feel to him. He has a macho feel.
6. [+31, -6] This drama is going to dominate Korea, China, and Japan
7. [31, -5] I heard Japanese women love Korean men because they serve in the army so they think it's masculine of them ㅋㅋ
8. [+28, -0] The plot seems like it'd be something the Japanese would like but I don't think the lines can be translated perfectly... I've noticed that the translations are off on other dramas so it worries me..
9. [+22, -0] Japan has a self-defense force and isn't on a conscription like Korea so they don't have that army feel. I'm sure the women will fall hard for Song Joong Ki's soldier character.
10. [+22, -4] All of the visuals are the types that Japanese ajummas would like
11. [+16, -0] Looks like Joong Ki's about to land on lots of cash.. Bae Yong Joon managed to turn his life around with just 'Winter Sonata'~
12. [+12, -0] Song Hye Gyo's already a Hallyu star (probably one of the founders of Hallyu) and Song Joong Ki has gotten popular with 'Running Man' but this will certainly catapult him up there
