How kind is he to leave this drama, for his fans to have something to watch while he was gone… and let me tell you, it was so wonderful having this drama, there were times when we would not know anything about Ilwoo for a month! It was so long…
I have to say that as a Fan, I always feel well cared for by Ilwoo. He posts so often in Instagram and shares even bits of his personal life, his tastes, even his home which he doesn’t have to. And he is so down to Earth… you can see it in the way he treats people. he values everything and everybody. Oh Ilwoo!
