Me and my sports-themed dramas! They are so far and few between but I think I’ve seem them all; I might not have liked them all but I’ve made every attempt to watch them. But “Basketball”, I have high hopes because Do Ji-han did such an impressive job in Incarnation of Money, that I know he will excel here. Plus, it takes place in the same era as Bridal Mask and Capital Scandal which I loved! I really don’t know anything about Jeong Dong-hyeon but we will see.
