The show is also expected to premiere some time in 2022, however an exact release date and other details have yet to be unveiled.
In other K-drama news, Okay Madam actor Lee Sang-yoon has revealed that he “felt regretful” over his performance on the 2020 action film. I felt really pressured to pull it off any way possible. I think the results would’ve been different if I had my current mindset of acting comfortably,” he said.
